3.0 out of 5 stars Novelty wears off very quickly!, October 23, 2006
This review is from: Fisher-Price T.M.X. Tickle Me Elmo (Toy)
My mom purchased the TMX Elmo for my 15 month old daughter. Not being the type of person to buy into toy-hype, I had absolutely no intention of buying one myself. Let me just begin by saying that Elmo is very funny when you first see and hear what he can do. It's funny for both adults and kids. My daughter LOVED him. . . . for maybe a week (at best!). I now have a $40 dust collector. She has totally lost interest in this toy. If you don't already have it, take your child over to a friend/neighbors house who does and let them play with it there. That will probably be as much time as they will play with it at your house anyway. If you absolutely MUST have it, by all means, buy it, but DON'T pay more than the MSRP for it. First off, it's SO not worth it. Second, don't make greedy people rich just to try and buy your child's happiness....there will be more in stores before Christmas obviously (do you really think Fisher Price wouldn't make enough to fill Christmas demand??? -- they're trying to make a profit too!)

You might try this approach. dont buy your child a bunch of stuff and maybe she would appreciate the elmo longer than a week. that is how it usually is when a child gets a lot of things. If they get a toy every so often then they will appreciate the toy a lot more. And as far as the filling the demand part....TMX is not like a stuffed toy with no moving parts. it has mechanical parts to it. You cant just make an elmo in a second. They MIGHT bring one shipment in the first of december but that is highly unlikly but who knows.

Do not kid yourself about this toy getting into stores before Christmas! I have staged a one person boycott against Fisher-Price for what they are doing. This is the same thing that toy manufacturer's did with the Cabbage Patch Kid in 1982!

Please join me in my boycott of Fisher-Price toys (all of them!) Send this message on to two friends and ask them to join in the boycott of all Fisher-Price toys! Do not let the consumer get ripped-off anymore!
