We were lucky enough to pick a toy to review which I thought would be perfect for both Nicoli and Little A. We got the Big Hugs Elmo which is perfect for children ages 18 months to 4 yrs. But I must admit to hugging Elmo myself when he asked.  If you have a little one that loves the color red or is a big fan of Sesame Street this would be the perfect gift for them. He has the soft red fur like he normally does, however keep in mind he is automated so his belly isn’t super soft but the rest of him is. Those big round eyeballs seem to draw every child in. Pop in the batteries and watch him warm right up to your child.

Big Hugs Elmo has been well-received by my family. Nicoli’s favorite color is red so I thought the moment he saw him he’d go nuts.  The funny thing is sometimes the saying “the best present for a baby is a box” is true. Nicoli loved talking to the little boy on the box, in fact I had to save the little cut out piece so he could continue to talk to him. haha Yes, I know that sounds funny but hey he loves him. (I think it is because it reminds him of Little A)

Nicoli loves the giant white eyeballs, Little A however loves the fact he can hug him and that Elmo hugs back…I even caught him dancing around the room with him. I think Nicoli will love it even more as he gets bigger, currently he is only 7 months old though Currently he loves reaching over and grabbing his eyeballs and holding him. The Playskool Sesame Street Big Hugs Elmo stands at 23′ tall, which is just about Nicoli’s height and the fact he does hug your child because of the way his arms were made will delight a child.  If Elmo is placed on his back he will start to drift off to sleep but when he does he plays a lullaby for your little one as well, which would make him a great bedtime companion.

Features:

Sing & Dance- Elmo sings 2 songs and does a dance melody.
Elmo says 50 phrases/sounds
Pretend time- Elmo has 4 story scenarios: Astronauts, rabbits, frogs and horses
Elmo loves to cuddle and will ask, but he loves those hugs even more.
4AA batteries are needed to get Elmo talking.
He is definitely NOT machine washable.

Psst, I think he is so adorable but even more when he begins snoring. I always tell my kids they snore and no one believes me, now I get a snoring Elmo but at least he sings himself to sleep before he does it.

Gift It Forward: Unique this year is a Shop Your Way Charity Gift Registry – Kmart partnered with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign to allow members and gift-givers the opportunity to donate Fab 15 toys to children in need at www.shopyourway.com/giftregistry.
