Awhile ago when Naomi was just four months old, the good people at Hasbro contacted us to ask if we’d like to try out the brand new Let’s Rock Elmo.
I knew she was a bit too young to be engaged with a toy as advanced as this but they reckoned she might be a bit interested by him anyway. And she sure was! Elmo is able to sing six songs and he comes with two instruments – a tambourine and bongo drums – and a microphone to croon along with. Kids are supposed to be able to interact with him by singing along, or changing his instruments so that he sings different things. Apparently, you can also buy add-ons like a guitar, keyboard and such which are sold separately.
But since Nae is nowhere near 18 months old, she interacted with him a little differently. How? Well, she had her mouth all over the instruments and microphone for one. She was definitely captivated by all the moving and singing. Nae has been listening to Sesame Street since she made her entrance into the world – Sometimes she amazes me when I sing Rubber Ducky and Sing. Her face lights up so brightly and she tries to ‘hum’ along. They’re obviously songs she recognizes. So I kind of wondered if she recognized Elmo’s voice…. Yeah, I know. Highly doubtful.
Still, it was really hilarious filming this video. Enjoy!
Hasbro gave me an extra BRAND NEW Let’s Rock Elmo to giveaway, so leave me a comment and tell me which Sesame Street character you loved and why. Or better yet, which Sesame Street your kid loves and why! I’ll publish all the comments and choose a winner of the best reply!
Contest ends in a week.
Note: Let’s Rock Elmo is suitable for kids from 18 months to 4 years old.
