Playskool Friends Sesame Street Let’s Dance Elmo
Musical Let’s Dance Elmo will encourage kids to sing and dance along with him this Christmas, as well as learn animals and colors through music. By pressing Elmo’s heart button kids can activate one of three different musical modes, either Colors, Animals, or a Music Remix, and hear a variety of phrases from Elmo. Elmo’s heart also changes color to match the color in the song and beats along to the music, with his headphones acting as a handle so children can take him wherever they go.

Fans of the L.O.L. Surprise dolls will love discovering what is inside the L.O.L. Surprise! Bigger Surprise! box.
