Holiday Gift for Toddlers and Preschoolers
Everyone remembers the frenzy that the latest Elmo toy caused among shoppers in the Christmas of 1996 and now the loveable little monster is once the hottest gift of the holiday season! If you have a child between one and four years old, they’re probably already eagerly checking out the Playskool Let’s Rock! Elmo from Hasbro’s latest line of toys featuring the friendly characters from Sesame Street!
Let’s Rock! Elmo is the ultimate interactive holiday toy for a toddler or preschool. He comes with his very own instruments: an Elmo-sized microphone, a tambourine and a set of drums. While the microphone is exclusively Elmo’s, your child can play either the drums or the tambourine while Elmo is playing the other instrument. Best of all, Elmo interacts with other Let’s Rock! Elmo instruments; when your child plays the guitar, keyboard or child-sized microphone that is available separately, Elmo recognizes what your child is playing and plays along!
My two-year-old tester’s favourite feature of the Let’s Rock! Elmo was the fact that he could play music with Elmo. Benjamin loves the drums, so Elmo spent most of his time playing the tambourine and singing with his own special microphone while Benjamin happily drummed along. I loved the way that Elmo recognized what instrument he had been given and some of the little jokes were just adorable. “Is this thing on?” Elmo comments with a laugh when he’s first given his microphone.
Let’s Rock Elmo! is lots of fun on his own, but what really makes the toy so amazing is the fact that when a child picks up and turns on one of the special Let’s Rock! Elmo instruments that is available separately, Elmo instantly knows what instrument your child is holding and plays along with your child! Benjamin has a toy guitar that he loves and I think we’ll be investing in the Let’s Rock! Elmo guitar this Christmas so that he and Elmo can really have some fun!
Let’s Rock Elmo! is available at toy retailers across North America, so check the website for a retailer near you. The toy is sure to provide your child with hours of musical entertainment and fun with everyone’s favourite friendly red monster, Elmo!
