Who doesn't remember the Tickle Me Elmo craze that had holiday shoppers on line for hours in the cold once Black Friday approached because it was the must have item for lil' monsters everywhere? So it's no surprise that as the holiday's approach there's new fun to be had with Elmo and all of his furry friends on Sesame Street and in our homes.

This month Hasbro hosted a Playskool Sesame Street event to unveil the new Play All Day Elmo. Taking place in the lower level of the Crosby hotel, we entered a vibrant space that was transformed into an amazing Sesame Street play room filled with all the latest toys for little fingers and curious minds to explore. Guest were treated to photo-op’s with their favorite characters, and because a play date isn't complete without snacks they provided delicious sandwiches, with display's of fresh fruit and french toast.

Then it was time to do what we were all there to do - PLAY! 2015 is a great year for Sesame Street, as their collection of adorable plush pals, bath toys and more will bring smiles to fans of all ages. 

We started with the Elmo On The Go Letters. This toy consists of an easy to open Elmo red briefcase with the letters of the alphabet lined up inside. The pieces snap into place so there isn’t a mess at the end of the night, and the small holder at the bottom is where children can place the letters to spell simple words. - On sale on Amazon for $14.99.

Then it was time to play with the toy of honor - Play All Day Elmo With more than 150+ responses and eight games and activities that will keep your little one in stitches. Play All Day Elmo can easily be considered on the most interactive Elmo toy on the market to date! You can't help but laugh while playing silly games like Freeze Dance and Red Light, Green Light.

Then if that wasn’t enough we were all led into a private theater to watch the brand new Sesame Street Play All Day with Elmo DVD.This interactive film is 2 hours of fun and learning Sesame Street style. They teach children listening skills, self-control and physical movement, disguised as fun pretend games.

As the afternoon began to wind down all guests were given gift bags filled with goodies that included our own Play All Day Elmo toy, DVD and books. This was such a fun event and we thank Playskool and Hasbro for inviting us to share in the excitement that is Elmo.
