When I received the invitation to attend the #PlayAllDayElmo Event by Hasbro I quickly RSVP'ed! My toddler has been an Elmo and Sesame Street fan since she was an infant. I have bought her every big Elmo toy for Christmas and they have always been a big hit. As soon my toddler woke up in the morning she yelled in excitement because today was the day! I might have told her a few days too early about the event! We took a long train ride to Spring Street and headed to the Crosby Street Hotel.
We went down to the event space and was greeted by an amazing staff. They took the care to decorate everything in cheerful colors, balloons and Elmo decorations! Cookie Monster and Grover was there to take pictures with the kids and then my daughter got escorted to a huge play room full of amazing Sesame Street toys.
We got to play with the Play All Day Elmo and given a little demo on it. The Play All Day Elmo has two modes, one for toddler play and one for a preschooler. This was perfect to use with my toddler because once she became an expert on that mode and becomes a preschooler next year I can switch up the mode and she has a whole new Elmo and games to play with. The Elmo has 8 different modes of play and 150+ play responses like turning him upside down and tickling his tummy. It also has a Nap switch when you are done playing with him where he will sing a song and go to sleep.
After playing with the toys we went to a screening room and the real Abby Caddaby and Elmo were there! All off the kids (and parents) squealed in delight when we saw them. We got to watch the new Play All Day with Elmo DVD while the kids jumped and clapped and did what the DVD asked them to do.
The Play All Day Elmo is the perfect holiday gift for kids ages 14 months to 4+. The Play All Day with Elmo DVD would be an amazing stocking stuffer too.
