What We Like About LOL Elmo
Anyone who has been around children for any amount of time soon realizes that getting a child to laugh can save the day in many circumstances. Whether a child is sick, sad, lonely, or just plain grumpy, the healing chemicals laughter releases in the body are miraculous and LOL Elmo is GREAT at getting any child to laugh in spite of how they may be feeling at the moment.
Elmo’s laughter is easily triggered and is designed to grab the attention of the child through his funny antics and rolling around. We found the natural interaction created between children and a giggling Elmo to enhance other social interactions from toddlers who tend to be more on the shy side naturally.
In addition, using LOL Elmo to break the ice with new friends or family members who aren’t around much has been a one of the best things this toys provides.
LOL Elmo also provides some emotional growth tools to help your child learn an excellent coping skill good to use in self-management of tough emotions – laughter, and a healthy time-out of sorts they initiate for themselves. When Elmo verbalizes what he needs in a situation by stating, “Elmo needs a break” out loud, it can also help your child recognize and express the same thing when they are unable to continue tolerating a difficult situation and need a break themselves. Recognizing their own limitations and a way to respect their own needs as well as others through it can be a wonderful gift from LOL Elmo himself.
What Others Are Saying About Playskool Sesame Street LOL Elmo
A few people who have purchased LOL Elmo have been surprised at his lack of “snuggling” properties as Elmo has a rather hard plastic interior. But when realizing the harder interior is what makes Elmo hold up to rolling around, and laughing out loud without breaking, it soon becomes just a minor annoyance that doesn’t discourage purchase because the durability is a great trade-off for the less than soft feel.
The Bottom Line
LOL Elmo is highly recommended for purchase this Christmas for just about anyone with a small child. Whether your child is naturally happy and will love having a pal to laugh with, or your child is going through a rough emotional time, LOL Elmo will be immediately enjoyed as soon as he is turned on and laughing. Adults enjoy the funny creature too but if he happens to get on your nerves eventually, just ration the batteries.
