You know we love the hot electronic toys, so we ran, not walked to get an Elmo Live for our kids. We have to admit that if you want something your toddlers (and cats) will love, but will drive you bonkers, this is the toy to get. The bugger doesn’t move his legs, and sometimes the noise he makes is louder than his guffaws, but still we think that he will keep your kids amused for at least a couple of hours while you take a nap during the holiday hubbub.
