This toy is actually a little creepy in my opinion. I am not sure yet what the obsession was so many years ago but I can tell you that Landon gets a big kick out of it. He gets overly excited and starts to imitate Elmo's movements. It is hilarious to watch. You can't help laughing along with him.
Falling forward laughing like Elmo
Bending backwards like Elmo
This is actually his overly excited face.
Elmo, even though you creep me out thank you for bringing so much joy to my son.
