Tickle Me Elmo Review (Hasbro)

Tickle Me Elmo
What It Is

Tickle Me Elmo from Hasbro is a re-release of the original 1996 edition. Kids could not get enough of this laughing plush Elmo when it first came out, and now he's back for a whole new generation of Sesame Street fans to enjoy. Just like the original, get the tickling fun started by switching Elmo from Try Me mode to On. Squeeze his tummy or his feet to get Elmo giggling. He shakes with laughter, says silly phrases, and makes laughing sounds. The more he's "tickled," the more he laughs. Recommended for toddlers and preschoolers 18 months - 4 years old, this adorable, stuffed Elmo measures 14-inches, and has some real retro appeal. Two AA batteries are included, along with instructions. 

Is It Fun?

Tickle Me Elmo has been a huge hit since it was first released in 1996. The stuffed toy is now available for a whole new generation of kids to enjoy. Just like the original, it's easy to activate, and very silly to watch and play with. Elmo's laughter is cute and contagious. 

Who It’s For

Just like the original, this Tickle Me Elmo is for Sesame Street fans. It's recommended for toddlers and preschoolers ages 18 months old through 4 years old but it will appeal to any fan of the cute character, or any child who enjoys playing with stuffed animals.

What To Be Aware Of

This Tickle Me Elmo doll is just like the original one, which launched in 1996. To activate the toy, squeeze his tummy or his feet.  Two AA batteries are included but they are for Try Me purposes and should be replaced before playing at home for best results. Be sure to turn to switch on Elmo's back from Try Me to ON before playing.
