Little ones will love it
on November 28, 2008
My daughter received this toy for her birthday two months ago, and she plays with it every day. There was minimal assembly involved. It took longer to unwrap everything from its plastic and carboard than it took to snap on doors, turn it on and position all the cooking implements and play food.
The menu is simply and colorfully illustrated, which makes it easy for youngsters to read. The sound effects, such as sizzling, bells ringing, Ernie and Bert's voices, and speaking into the microphone attached near the cashier make the restaurant even more fun as my child brought it to life.
The only drawbacks to the toy is that some of the doors come off easily, but they're made to snap right back on. Also, if you leave the unit on, it will randomly ring, speak or sizzle, which can be a bit alarming in the middle of the night. This toy is also on the expensive side, a fact i wouldn't have minded so much if it had come with a few more pieces, such as a bowl or even a chef's hat for a child.
Elmo's Restaurant is colorful, portable and most importantly, it provided hours of quiet, active play for young children.
