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 you hug Elmo, he hugs you back!|
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
When hugged, Big Hugs Elmo moves his arms to hug your child back so he or she will know they have made a new friend.
Imagine with Elmo
With four imagination activities, including astronauts, rabbits, frogs and horses, and three sing-along songs, Big Hugs Elmo helps keep your little one engaged.
Sweet Dreams Elmo
Big Hugs Elmo makes sleeping sound effects and sings a lullaby when laid down to help make naptime fun.

Of cos we had to take photos with Elmo too! It would be the best bed time companion for him 🙂

Janice Wong says
it’d be the perfect gift for my darling daughter who is obsessed over elmo but poor her only has a hand me down from the mummy. n it’s the elmo I gotten from mac Donald eons ago! ! Would really make her day not to mention keep her occupied! In addition I’m hoping this toy would teach her to b more liberal with her hugs. She’s very affectionate towards me but not with others so having such a huggable friend as an example would certainly help. especially impt since we r expecting a new addition to our family soon! 🙂
My girl can definitely do with more hugs from Elmo. He would be a better option than guns and sword (From the brothers)
Oooh my 2-year old daughter Jules would love to give Elmo a hug!! She’s obsessed with Elmo and will go on all day singing the Elmo song!! She would be totally thrilled to be able to have Elmo with her singing along!!!

Hope to win the Elmo for my niece as a christmas present. She is the only child and plays alone most of the time. Elmo can be her companion! She is going to love it very much

I want to win it for my 2 years old nephew Asher. I noticed that he had been fascinated by Elmo ever since he watched the Elmo promotion clip at a toy fair. I think this is such an awesome interactive plush toy for him as Elmo can cuddle, pretend, sing, dance etc and also teach him alphabets and numbers. May Christmas comes early for Asher and he can receive hugs from Elmo

I wish to win this Elmo for my nephew who loves everything we give him. Since we moved out from my mom’s, the boy doesn’t have my son as playmate and kinda lonely. I wish to win this for him, to keep him happy and know that we miss him always.

My toddler LOVES to give hugs and kisses. I think he’d love the fact that Elmo would hug him back! That way, when I’m busy with his younger brother, he can still have hugs from Elmo!
