    They REALLY are fishing for stuff, aren't they...

    check it out in all it's WHAT THE CRAP? HOLY HECK! glory....

    I don't know what's weirder, the title or the domey shaped Elmo doll that encases it.

    They really had to make the doll crudely made?

    I really don't see the point of this one. the plush casing is ugly and misshapen (they could have just used his head), and the story seems pointless (Elmo visiting Baby bear for no reason)...

    and overall, even though he's not the most popular character, dome shaped books would work a LOT better with This character
  5. One word......scary....!

    Oh, come on, everybody... I think it's kinda cute. :p

    Besides, in terms of failure, there is NO beating this:

    The plush is horrifying.

    Elmo taking a "data dump" I could kind of get behind, though...

    I happened to have seen one of the plush books today at a store that's closing down. Trust me, it looks MUCH better in person.

    That's not at all what I was implying with that, but eh...

    I know what you were implying but it's the position he's in that makes me think more, um, back than front if you know what i mean.

    Hmmm, Elmo Furby. And it's not just an Elmo Furby, IT'S A BOOK! WOW! What would they think of next. lol (couldn't resist) But yeah, that is weird. No title on the plush either. Personally I would go for more of the fabricated, book sort of thing. I remember being little, I had this Ernie & Bert book that you could read in the bathtub. It kind of reminds me of that. Though the book would dry and you can bring it anywhere. But of course it would need to be cleaned from time to time. lol
    It almost looks like a Valentine's gift. Probably work better like that then say a toy / book for kids.
    But you know what was better in my opinion. Anyone remember this Big Bird doll that had a tape player under-neigh his flat tale where the mouth and eyeslids would move timed to Caroll Spinney's voice, Big Bird's Storyland or Storytime, something like that. They were animatronic dolls like Teddy Rumpskin that 80s bear that reads stories to you and you follow along with a book. I think they made a Cookie Monster and Oscar but either they were rare, never made or my parents never bothered buying them for me as a kid. lol

    WOW, there's more, lol For some campy humor reason, I want to get these no mater how low the flash-drive GB rate is. lol

    I saw an Appolo Creed one, actually.

    I don't know if the Kinnikuman ones were the first of that group, but I remember seeing of them well before the Sesame Street ones.

    If you want a REALLY ugly Elmo product, look no further than this knock-off handpuppet from China.


    Their Barney puppet doesn't look much better.

    What's with the tounge on Elmo? Or Barney's green eyes? :o
