OMG, you have to see this!

Click on this link and then click on the top video with Elmo:

I chuckled the whole time the new Elmo TMX laughed. It is so freakin' cute! I had no desire to get this thing for my kids until I actually saw it. He has 3 cycles of laughs. If you watch all 3 on the video, you will see that he gets funnier with each cycle. He rolls, slaps the ground, slaps his hip, and doubles over with laughter. What's amazing is that he gets right back up on his feet after having a contagious laughing fit. He is absolutely hilarious.

Here's a complete description of what he does:
-Elmo will tickle America's funny bone with 3 interactive tickle spots on his chin, tummy or toe
-When kids tickle Elmo once on any of the tickle spots, he starts to laugh and slap his leg twice, then falls down into a sitting position and rocks himself back up to standing while laughing
-Tickle him a second time and he repeats the pattern even more, then sits down again and falls backwards onto his back and starts kicking his feet while laughing even harder before standing up and asking to be tickled again
-Tickle him 3 times and he absolutely lets loose going through the first 2 patterns and then rolling over onto his tummy where he starts hitting the floor with his hand in gales of laughter, then rolling onto his back, standing up again, and ending with a deep sigh

If you are interested in getting one for the holidays, good luck. They debuted yesterday and no stores around me have any left. I was so upset that I was a day late and a dollar short. Ugh! It's sad, but alot of them got swiped up by people reselling them for ungodly amounts on ebay. Well, thank the Lord for my wonderful Mom because she called around her town for them and everyone was out. She then tried a Toys 'R Us in Greensboro (about 30 min. from her) and found out that they had 16 left. They would not hold an Elmo for her so she raced out there to get one. Fortunately, there was 3 left when she arrived. She swiped one and my Aunt got one too for my cousins. Yay!!! I can't wait for Emerson to get it for Christmas. He is going to love it. :)
