Elmo is huge every single year and each year they keep upgrading how he will be able to interact with your children. This year Elmo will be able to hug children and sing songs and interact with your children, even telling them when they have Elmo upside-down. Very cool and I think this year kids are going to have even more fun with Elmo because they will be able to interact with him a bit more than previous models. I love that new toys are able to tell you when they are being held or being rocked to sleep, it lets children feel like they have the “real” Elmo with them.
