All Elmo ever really wanted was a hug.
From the moment Dana unwrapped Big Hugs Elmo, she was over the moon. Her all time favourite Sesame Street character is right in our home, giving her a big tight hug!! The first thing we noticed when the gift arrived is that it is very tall, standing almost as high as a toddler. This makes it a pretty fun toy for kids. Dana couldn’t be more thrilled to have a life-sized (well, almost) huggable buddy to fill the gap of the sibling she’s been longing for.
|What a lovely early Christmas Surprise!|
I love that Big Hugs Elmo is intuitive and features a lot of life-like interactions when some of its buttons are pressed. For example, it is capable of uttering more than 50 phrases, such as “Elmo loves getting hugs from you,” and “Move to the beat” to keep kids entertained and amused. The voice of this Big Hugs Elmo toy is a faithful recreation of the Elmo voice on Sesame Street. It is also made out of a plush fibre that is soft to touch. All of these elements combine to make it enjoyable for children. Dana would’ve packed Big Hugs Elmo into her luggage on our vacation had there been space.
|It’s big, it’s red, it’s huggable and it’s Elmo!!|
When Big Hugs Elmo receives a hug, he moves his arms to hug back, says fun phrases or sings a song about hugs, encouraging pretend play and reinforcing the positive acts of returning affection.

When laid down in a flat position, Big Hugs Elmo becomes sleepy, sings a lullaby and makes snoring sounds. This great “sleep” feature which asks kids to be quiet when they put Elmo down for a nap makes it a wonderful tool to train younger kids in their bedtime routines. With Big Hugs Elmo, kids are invited to cuddle, sing, dance and explore. I won’t be surprised if it is one of the most sought after toys this Christmas.
Give Elmo a Squeeze
