At Elmo’s 3 ½ year old birthday party (Monsters count birthdays differently than humans, natch), we were even treated to a musical performance from the real Elmo himself with his pal Leela, from Sesame Street.
Throw in a meeting with Elmo and you’ve passed happy and into the realm of completely awestruck. The only catch? After seeing human sized Elmo impersonators for so long, try to convince the 2 ½ year old in question that the small red puppet with the man’s hand in his tush is the ‘real’ Elmo. Though a little thrown off, my little one truly enjoyed her hug I was just hugely starstruck to meet Kevin Clash!
Not only were our goodie bags full of a whole bunch of great Sesame Street toys, but they included a copy of Elmo’s World: Elmo’s Favorite Things a two-hour DVD featuring 8 Elmo’s World segments (released February 7th).
