Elmo is calling. Who's on the phone? The adorable Elmo, of course. When Elmo calls, it's a great chance for your child to learn how to interact with others on the phone. Elmo will say basic words and sentences to them, and it's their job to respond with what they've been taught. It's cute, fun, and educational time with Elmo!
Elmo's a turkey. With playful words from the popular Sesame Street character, it's never been more fun for your children to learn basic vocabulary. Watch as your child plays and interacts with Elmo as he teaches them simple words, and sit back and smile knowing that they're learning and having fun at the same time.
What is it about?
Elmo calls is a series of pre-recorded "Face-time"-like videos. There are more than 10 different videos to play. Each one starts with the phone ringing, and Elmo gives time for your child to answer, so the call feels interactive. You can also see video "voice-mail" messages to see what Elmo said while you were away.
For those who...
- Must have app for any Elmo-lover
- Great at keeping toddlers entertained while practicing their vocal skills
Not for those who...
- It's not great if your child is too old to realize Elmo is not actually responding to what they are saying
- Older kids will find it silly
Why we love it
If your toddler is like most miniature people, he/she always gets a kick out of seeing Elmo. The added excitement of making your chile believe it's interactive and they are actually FaceTiming with Elmo will score major points with parents everywhere.
