Your Kids Say - Lets Rock Elmo, What Will You Say?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Will your family be rocking with Elmo? Or do you think you might be among those trying to explain why not? According to all the experts I have spoken with, perhaps you should start preparing your excuses now - or maybe it would be better to find out what it is all about and get an order in?

This Christmas Let’s Rock Elmo is going to be one of the most sought after toys. Why am I so sure of this? Well for two major reasons. 1. Elmo has always been one of the best loved characters from Sesame Street. 2. The Let’s Rock Elmo toy is fabulous. It is well designed, well thought out, it is funny, it is educational (and it is polite!)

But most of all it is noisy and this always appeals to this age group. Let us take a  look at what it can do: Elmo can sing and make music with your child. This will fascinate a younger child and also encourage them to interact more with Elmo.

He  can play and interact with other ‘Let’s Rock’ instruments, which you can buy separately. This is great because the toy can grow as the other parts are added and so it does not become stale for the child and get forgotten like so many toys do.

Elmo sings and makes music, and your child can too. You and your child can become part of Elmo’s band, by taking an instrument and rocking along with Elmo. This interaction engages the child in the game and an engaged child is a happy child. While being involved, he or she is learning and having fun at the same time.

Elmo comes programmed with half a dozen child-friendly tracks which can help with your child’s learning , 'It Takes Two' and 'The ABC Song' can start things off.

Elmo’s interaction is not limited to simply the singing. As he sings or speaks, he opens his mouth as if to engage in conversation. He says quite a few different things to encourage your child to talk back to him. For example, "Elmo thinks you are a great guitarist"  "Thanks for playing with Elmo".

He will also give more positive encouragement, using compliments like "Wow! You played great music!" We all know how well children react to being appreciated and praised.

What I think I like best about Elmo is that he is full of so much enthusiasm and fun. He shows it by laughing and giggling as he speaks. But he does not forget his manners and never forgets his please and thank you, which gives your child a great example of politeness and good manners.

This year at the New York Toy Fair, Hasbro launched a number of interactive Sesame Street toys. The most popular was Let's Rock Elmo, with his eighties-style tee shirt, singing and playing songs on tambourine and drums.

However, competition in the interactive toy market is stronger than ever this year. Fisher-Price have launched with 'Rock Star Mickey'. These two rock-themed toys based on well-loved, middle-aged toy brands, will probably dominate the market as they are such strong brands in themselves.

Will the market support two rock-themed toys, which toy will ultimately dominate the toy world? Well I love Mickey, but my vote goes to Let’s Rock Elmo.
