Tickle Me Elmo - Ten Years On
Celebrating the 10th anniversary of Tickle Me Elmo, the toy that created a wave of what could only be described as ‘shop rage’ among desperate parents, comes the new and improved TMX Elmo. Everybody’s favourite Sesame Street puppet is gigglier than ever, with three interactive tickle zones.
Prod him once, TMX Elmo laughs and slaps his thigh, sits down and gets back up. At the second tickle he lands on his back, kicking his feet, then gets up crying ‘Again, again!’ In the big finish, he falls to his belly and pounds the ground in hysterics until finally standing up and letting out a huge sigh. Elmo has had enough.
Launched last month, TMX Elmo is selling out fast and prices on Amazon and Ebay are nearing the $200 mark. Crazy, yeah. But I defy even the most fad-resistant not to put this on their Xmas list. Simply genius. Check out Fisher Price US or Fisher Price UK.
