We’re gearing up for Christmas #2 with out little girl, and there’s already so much excitement in the air. Last year she had no idea what was going on, but this year is a little bit different. She still doesn’t understand exactly what’s going on, but she really picks up on the excitement we’re all feeling and acts so excited, too!
About a month ago she started taking a strong notice of Sesame Street. We have an “I Spy” type of book where you have to try and spot Elmo and Grover on every page. She immediately took an intense interest in Elmo and shrieks with joy when she spots him on the page. It’s the cutest thing EVER!
I actually never got into Sesame Street as a child. I don’t remember ever really watching it, but I could tell you who most of the characters were. I decided to start recording it on our DVR so that my daughter could watch it, and I’m SO glad I did! Sesame Street is full of fun, educational and catchy songs that captivate children, and there’s even a few passive jokes weaved into each episode that only adults would understand. It’s actually sort of hilarious! I can totally get behind my daughter’s love for Elmo and the cast of Sesame Street. I love Elmo, too! (That “Letter of the Day” song is the catchiest song I think I’ve ever heard. Anyone else find themselves singing it all throughout the day like me?) 😉
If you have an Elmo-obsessed toddler like I do, you’re probably in the market to buy some Elmo goodies this holiday season. I’ve already had friends and relatives asking me what my daughter might want for Christmas, and so far my answer has been anything Elmo! I’ve put together a list of a few of my favorite gift ideas for buying for kids crazy for Elmo. Hopefully you find something you and your little one will truly love!
Elmo No-Spill Bubble Bucket – My kid is absolutely crazy about bubbles. She wants to blow bubbles all by herself, but it’s always such a huge mess because she spills the bubble solution! This Elmo no-spill bucket is an awesome solution for that! It really makes play time with bubbles much less stressful for parents, and way less messy for the kids!
Sesame Street Dining Set – How cute is this little dining set!? I’m crazy about the little Elmo fork and spoon! This is perfect for my toddler who prefers to eat all by herself and wants her own plate or bowl. Elmo makes eating much more fun!
Bath Time Elmo – Splish splash, Elmo’s taking a bath! My little girl loves playing in the bath tub with all of her toys, but she doesn’t understand why her Elmo plush doll can’t play in the water with her. Now Elmo can be right there with her as they scrub-a-dub-dub!
Playskool Elmo Guitar – Does your little one love jamming out to music? This Elmo play guitar is perfect for little ones who love to rock out to “The Letter of the Day” and other fun Elmo songs!
Goodnight Lullaby Elmo – What’s better than curling up in your jammies and snuggling under the covers when you’re getting ready for bed? Goodnight Lullaby Elmo is perfect to curl up and play with while getting ready for bed time. It even plays music to help soothe little ones to sleep. Nighty night, Elmo!
Airplane Elmo – Is your kid crazy about things that move? This airplane Elmo toy is the perfect toy to keep your kids imagination soaring!
Full Body Elmo Hand Puppet – There are lots of Elmo stuffed animals on the market, but not many of them are full body puppets! If your kiddo loves to play pretend, this is a perfect gift idea for them. They can make up their own dialogue for their furry red friend while they’re playing in “Elmo’s World!”
P is for Potty Elmo Board Book – We are in the midst of potty training in our house, and my little one loves to pick out a book to take into the bathroom with her as she sits on her “throne.” Having Elmo help coach and encourage her throughout the process is a total win! Pretty soon we’ll be picking out some Elmo undies! 😉
Potty Time Coloring Book with Stickers -Coloring books and stickers are another thing that kids seem to go crazy over. This particular one would be perfect to give if the child you’re buying for is potty training. If not, there are tons of other Elmo coloring and activity books available to keep kids entertained!
Sesame Street Drinking Cups – There’s just nothing like the bond between a kid and their cup. My daughter totes a cup of milk or juice with her everywhere she goes! She doesn’t have any cups with her favorite lovable character on it just yet, but I’ve already put in a word with Santa Clause. These would make great stocking stuffers for Christmas! 😉
Elmo Let’s Imagine Flashlight – This neat little gadget acts as a flashlight for little ones to play with when it gets dark, but it’s also an educational toy with 3 adventure modes and several fun sing along songs!
Unisex Elmo T-Shirt – How excited would the Elmo-obsessed toddler be to get to wear their favorite character on their shirt?! This is a great gift idea for boys and girls alike!
Sesame Street Bandages – I know what you’re thinking….why in the world would you give bandages as gifts? Hear me out! When a boo-boo happens in my house, I’m always trying to find something that will calm my little one’s nerves and makes her feel better fast. As soon as she sees her beloved Elmo, she automatically starts feeling better! It always helps to keep fun kid-friendly bandages on hand. These would also make for a fun stocking stuffer if you’re buying for Christmas!
Sesame Street Sock Set – Is it just me, or does your kid go through socks like nobody’s business? We ALWAYS need extra socks in this house! My daughter is starting to learn how to put on her socks all by herself. I love this set of Sesame Street character socks! There’s also a Girls Set available if your little prefers pinks and purples. I’m 100% positive that the Elmo pair will give worn out the fastest by my kid!
Stuffed Elmo Giggle Ball – One of the first recognizable and iconic traits of Elmo is his infectious laugh. This Elmo giggle ball is literally a ball full of laughter! When kids give this Elmo a big squeeze, he shares a laugh with everyone who can hear him!
Elmo Sandwich Cutter – Do you have a crust-picker-offer on your hands? My little one doesn’t like for me to leave the crust on her sandwiches, so this Elmo sandwich cutter will be absolutely perfect for her! I’m hoping that seeing her favorite character on her food will help her be excited about food and trying new things. Fingers crossed! 😉
