Must Have Robot: Elmo Live
Here's the skinny on Elmo Live, our Must Have Robot this week. We recently took him out to play and made a quickie video to share. Our kitten Radar couldn't quite figure him out. We guess he thought he was for him.
So the bad news. Elmo doesn't move his legs. That is not that big a deal, but we would have liked that to be incorporated into his design. He sheds. Not much, but enough to keep babies away from him. He sometimes makes so much noise when flapping his arms, etc. that it is difficult to understand him.
The good news is that he will be adored by younger kids, toddlers (and kittens.) He tells stories, jokes, dances, and is easy to interact with once you get the hang of him. Squeeze his nose, left foot, tummy or back and he does his thing. By the way, he comes with 6 AA batteries. Make sure that you put him on a flat surface or he will fall over as he did at the end of the video. Yeah, we know you can hear us snigger when he does.
