Holiday Must Have – #BigHugsElmo

ElmoCollage1

This has really been a wonderful month with Elmo in the house.  I am so happy to have had the chance to test him out in our home and even more excited to be able to give another away to a lucky family.  Trust me when I tell you that this will be the top selling toy of the holiday season.  I had a Tickle Me Elmo years ago and this toy is much more interactive.  In the span of only a couple weeks my 20 month old Shane has learned to give and receive hugs and it's all thanks to Elmo.  Now if I ask Shane for a hug he gladly will come over and give a big squeeze and if I'm lucky a kiss too.  It is totally sweet because Shane isn't much bigger than the Elmo is but I find him dragging it around everywhere.  At first I was worried that Elmo might lose an arm with all of the travels Shane has been taking him on but this toy is really built well – the quality is fantastic. I often see him hugging Elmo, having snuggles or bringing Elmo over to his younger sister to try and get a hug.  He usually settles for a kiss.  We have also recently moved Shane into a Big Boy bed and I really feel that him having Elmo with him has been helpful.  Some (not all) nights Shane will bring Elmo with him to bed and rub his head while he is having his nighttime bottle.

When Shane isn't playing with Elmo I find him all over the house.  Usually it is in spots that I would put Aria – The Bumbo, pack and play etc.  For someone who is so young I am really amazed at the care that he takes with Elmo.  Even when it is turned off he gives him a hug and puts him away until he is ready to play again.  This toy is just so super awesome.  Elmo sings a couple songs, plays make believe and goes to sleep(he even snores).  Also, don't forget that Big Hugs Elmo has been given the PTPA Seal of Approval!  As a parent I have often been relieved to find the PTPA Seal on products that I am looking at.  It is so great to know that real parents like you and I have tested these products and that they will probably also be a fit for my family.
