Big Hugs Elmo

Product Review – Big Hugs Elmo

Sesame Street and its furry characters have always been a favorite of children and adults alike. With many characters being made into toys, the always popular Elmo is given new upgrades every year to cope with the high demand. Each new edition has seen Elmo become more and more interactive. Taking this to a new level is Big Hugs Elmo, which is set to become immensely popular.

Let’s Take A Look At Some Of The Features

Big Hugs Elmo is 22 inches tall and made of delightfully cuddly soft plush fabric, and he responds to hugs and cuddles. He is interactive enough to feel almost like the &#8220real thing.&#8221 He sings several songs, including a lullaby when he&#8217s being rocked to sleep, and can actively encourage the child’s imagination with different suggestions of pretend play. He can interact when he&#8217s being rocked or bounced around and is even sensitive enough to tell the child when he&#8217s being held upside down.

Things We Like About This Latest Elmo

What’s not to like, actually. There are so many great features to enjoy. Big Hugs Elmo has a very sophisticated level of interaction that children will find remarkably engaging. He has flexible arms and a soft plush head and is the largest and most huggable toy within the range.

Things We Did Not Like About Elmo

The only negative points are that he is only recommended for ages 18 months and over, so although younger children may be delighted with him, he may not be suitable, which could create arguments with younger siblings. Also he requires 4 AA batteries (which are not included) and official information hasn’t clarified how quickly the sophisticated interaction features will drain battery life.

Who Would Buy Big Hugs Elmo?

This toy is recommended for children aged 18 months to 4 years, although I know a few adults who would consider one for themselves. 🙂 The toy provides a chatty little companion and will encourage the imagination and engage any toddler or young child.

Is Big Hugs Elmo Worth The Money?

It would be hard to put a price on the new Elmo, but he is certainly one of the most sophisticated, interactive toys currently available. The level of interactivity will have most toddlers believing that you have brought home the real Elmo as their own personal playmate. This will certainly make it a toy which will benefit from long periods of enjoyment and will not be relegated to the back of a closet or the bottom of a toy chest.

Where Can I Buy Big Hugs Elmo?

This new Elmo is available for purchase from most major toy retailers and online such as Amazon.com.
