>We recently attended a very exclusive lunch with the one and only Elmo! We were lucky enough to get the chance to play with Lets Rock! Elmo and take him home too!
Lets Rock Elmo is a very clever interactive toy, Elmo reconises the different instruments that come included with him.
Elmo asks for a certain instrument, and reconises when you give them to him. I have found this a great learning aid for all 3 of my kids, especially Mark as he is just 18 months old. He has learnt which instrument is the tambourine, which is the drums, and which is the microphone. Mark has also learnt what these instruments are for, and loves copying Elmo. The instruments are perfectly sized for kiddies to play along.
Elmo has loads of different phrases aswell as 6 songs built into him, so this is a toy that won’t bug you with the same phrase or song over and over again!
Elmo is suitable for 18 months plus, and although Mark is the lower age of the age bracket being 18 months, he has learnt a great deal from Elmo, and I think will continue to do so.
Here is a little video showing you a few of Elmo’s songs
Elmo has a button on his right foot, hidden underneath his red fur, that you press to change to a different mode or song. There is also the all important OFF switch on the underneath of his foot. Although Mark has learnt where this is, and can turn him on all by himself!
There is hours of fun to be had with Lets Rock Elmo. You can even buy the additional instruments which include a keyboard, a bigger microphone, and a guitar. This is set to be a top toy for christmas, and will keep adults and children amused!
