The new “Tickle-Me Extreme” Elmo was released today to mark the 10th anniversary of Tickle Me Elmo.
This Elmo does more than giggle when his stomach is pressed – he’s also slapping his knee, falling to the floor, rolling over and pounding his arm.
Seeing the video of the toy, I think he will be a hot toy and off the shelves much before Christmas.
I find him kinda cute but can’t justify standing in line and spending $40 on him…..maybe after the hype has died down, I’ll get him in a second hand bargain store next year.
Of course, there are all sorts of people – I saw this listed in Ebay for around $140….so for all you parent who did make the trip and stood in line at Toys R Us – maybe this is your chance to fund your kids Christmas wish-list 🙂
