Play All Day Elmo Review (Hasbro)

Play All Day Elmo
What It Is

Elmo fans can play all day with Elmo with the Playskool Sesame Street Play All Day Elmo. This toy Elmo has eight built-in games and activities, and more than 150 different responses. There are two play modes: Toddler and Preschool.

In Toddler mode, Elmo's sensors help him respond when kids touch, move, and play with Elmo. For instance, tickle Elmo's tummy to hear Elmo laugh. Jump while holding Elmo to hear "boing boing" noises. Squeeze Elmo's nose to make Elmo sneeze.

Preschool mode includes the same features of Toddler mode plus eight games and activities. Squeeze Elmo's nose to choose which game you want to play, such as Red Light Green Light, Pat-a-Cake, Freeze Dance, Elmo Says, Hop and Count, Guess the Color, Animal Sounds, and What's Up in the Sky.

When it's naptime or bedtime, flip Elmo's switch to Nap mode. Elmo will sing a lullaby, ask for a kiss goodnight, and then play a soft instrumental lullaby for two minutes. The toy will not speak again until the switch is moved back to Play mode.

Is It Fun?

There have been many interactive Elmo toys over the years, and this one is just really cute, sweet, and engaging for young kids. The two modes of play allow any Elmo-loving child to interact with this favorite character as he or she grows. And along with being a fun playtime companion, the Nap mode makes it a nice bedtime buddy.

Who It’s For

Playskool Sesame Street Play All Day Elmo is for Elmo fans ages 18 months-4 years.

What To Be Aware Of

This toy comes with four AA batteries for the in-store try-me features. It's recommended that you replace them before you play for best results. Also, don't forget to switch the toy from "Demo" mode to "On" before playing to activate the toy's full features.

The arms, legs, and body of this toy are really soft, but because the battery compartment and electronics are in the toy's head, the head is a little hard and not as cuddly.
