TMX


Tickle Me Elmo is celebrating his 10th birthday with the TMX. This is the most hilarious toy I have seen in a very long time. And apparently they are flying off the shelves like the original Elmo (like hotcakes). I have heard of people paying crazy amounts for the little furry guy. Someone on EBAY paid over $100 to make sure their kid was smiling on Christmas morning (Fisher Price is only asking $40...when I say "only" I want you to know that I think that is a great big asking price for a kid's toy). I will probably not knock grown women over to nab one for Nora, but I definitely see the appeal. For those of you who have not had the pleasure of witnessing the TMX, click here and then click on "See It In Action". You will also see how it could get EXTREMELY annoying for your child (or other adult) to tickle it over and over. I admit that the red monster is cute and hope Nora has a good friend with parents that went out and fought other parents for one, so she can go over to their house one day and play.

I like Elmo, but this toy is definitely over the top in the annoying area!
