Elmo was provided a voice by Kevin Clash who was instrumental in increasing the popularity of the red monster. Various puppeteers have performed for Elmo and have provided movements for his arms and legs making Elmo the most loved puppet for a long time.
Although other characters in Sesame Street like Rocco, Barney and Dora are also popular, Elmo has the largest following amongst children who identify with him easily.
Big Hugs Elmo sings three different songs including a song about hugs which will want kids to hug him. He also comes with 4 modes of imaginative play including that of a rabbit, an astronaut, a frog and a horse. If you put it on the horse mode, Elmo will say, “Let’s imagine we are horses and will go tippy-dee-tap” and regale his audience. Everyone who is present in the room will be well entertained.
What’s more, at bed time Elmo will even sing a lullaby while going to sleep and say, “Good Night!” before he goes off to sleep. He even snores in his sleep though that is something that has been included as a special effect and the snore will stop as soon as he sleeps.
Elmo is a big hit with children since they can relate to him easily. He speaks about himself in the third person like most kids do. Besides Elmo has also appeared in many serials like The Tony Daza Show and Martha Stewart Living which has driven up awareness and the popularity of Elmo amongst parents
Did you know that Elmo is the only puppet who has testified before the US Congress?! It was the only time when a non-human did so, in this case for garnering support for more funding in music education.
Most parents love Elmo too, especially for its highly educative features. A point in support of this is when Food Network aired Emeril and Elmo’s Healthy Start, a program that promoted healthy habits for life. One of the reasons for its high popularity is that even parents don’t mind buying Elmo toys for their children, because they know that the positive gains from educational toys like Elmo far outweigh the cost of buying them.
Some parents did feel though that the Elmo’s wrong way of speaking English may affect their children’s language. For example Elmo says “Elmo has a question” when he should be saying, “I have a question”. But then most parents understand that Elmo is a toy and that children realize that Elmo has been incorporated with such dialogues only for playing purposes. It will not affect their language in any way.
Big Hugs Elmo seems to incorporate the positive aspects of Elmo the character and brings with itself a great friend for your kid. With its educational qualities and creative activities, Elmo has stood the test of time.
Buying Big Hugs Elmo will only bring benefits to your child and with such a large variety of features it is bound to become increasingly popular with all children. Expected to launch at a great price, Big Hugs Elmo is easily one of the most popular toys that you can buy for your kid this fall.
