Fisher-Price T.M.X. Tickle Me Elmo

Updated on July 8, 2014

The Fisher-Price T.M.X. Tickle Me Elmo character is funnier than ever. He is still covered in red faux fur, he stands approximately 15 inches tall and he is designed to win you over with his contagious laugh. Tickle him in the three designated spots (under the chin, on the belly and on top of the foot) and you will set him off. Stand Elmo up, tickle him and Elmo starts to laughs, tumbles, pats his belly, moves is arms and legs, rolls over and stands back up all under his own power. While he is making his moves there are various phrases that he says also. He says “I got tickled”, “You tickled Elmo”, “You did it again”, “Give Elmo a break, please”, “I can’t stop laughing”, “Again, again” and he will end with a deep sigh.

Although rated for ages 2 – 8 years old, Elmo keeps the entire family (including pets) entertained. The T.M.X. Tickle Me Elmo is the 10th anniversary version and has new tricks to perform. Each time he gets a tickle – he gets more tickled and his antics escalate. No need to worry though, there is an on-off switch that will restore Elmo and his audience to a calmer state.

 

The T.M.X. Tickle Me Elmo does not require any special surface to perform. Carpet, hardwood and tile all work well – except that he may bump his eyes rather hard without the soft touch of a carpet. He also requires enough room to perform his acrobatic type movements but a couple feet in each direction should be enough.  The required (included) six AA batteries are easy to install underneath the plastic covers on the bottom of Elmo’s feet.

 

The Fisher-Price T.M.X. Tickle Me Elmo offers a lot of entertainment. I can see other uses for him as well. If a small child needs to be distracted from a fit, bad behavior or unsafe behavior Elmo will surely get their attention. If older children are fighting or playing with toys that the little ones want – pull out Elmo and he will bridge the gap. For adults that have a difficult time stopping an argument before it gets out of hand – let Elmo be the (pre-arranged) change of mood facilitator.

 

 

For those wanting a fuzzy and soft cuddly toy – Elmo is not the answer. However, he is tough and can take the rough and tumble treatment that is handed out at the hands of a toddler. If he gets dragged by his arms, legs or even by his funny bulging white and black eyes he will continue to put on his giggle shows over and over again. Other Sesame Street characters have the T.M.X. features. So if Ernie or the Cookie Monster tickles your funny bone more get them instead.

      Back in the 90's this was the hottest Christmas present, you could not find one anywhere. My wife drove all over Illinois to find one. She triumphed as she always does. The kids loved it!
