{September 21, 2006}   Elmo TMX Mania


Tickle Me Elmo mania has struck once again. Stay out of the stores, its not safe. You will only find grown adults clawing and fighting over the fuzzy red toy.  

Ah, but this one is special, they say. This is the tenth anniversary of the craze which swept toy stores, sending parents into battle to obtain the must have toy for their child. This Elmo laughs, sits, rolls over, and slaps his thigh. Of course, he also does the annoying laugh too. Wow, go Elmo!  

The toy retails at $39.99, but you can find them on eBay from $50 to $150. Amazingly enough, people are willing to pay. It seems this time Fisher Price is only making one million of this years “it” toy. They kept the details of the toy a secret until it was unveiled this morning. 

The whole thing reminds me of that Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, Jingle All the Way. In this movie the hero does things he normally would never consider, all in an attempt to get that special toy to put under the Christmas tree.

Hurry now. Drive from store to store. Search out your Elmo. And when you find one, don’t let go, not for anything. Fight, claw, scratch, but don’t let go of Elmo. Then you get to decided if you’re actually willing to hand it over to your toddler, or if you want to try your luck at making big bucks through an eBay auction.

Holy mother of… Have you seen the commercial for these? I swear Elmo is humping the floor!

LOLOL! Nope, haven’t seen it, but I’ll have to watch for it.
