In 1996 Independence Day rocked the box office, the"Macarena"began its trek up the charts before landing on wedding dance floors, and Elmo 1st showed the planet his predilection for tickles. The most secretly guarded toy with the pre-holiday season, if not all time, T. M. X. Elmo was shown only to a couple of toy-industry insiders prior to his release. This secrecy didn't stop thousands of pre-orders from piling up. Elmo gets far more outrageous when you"tickle"him a second time, and the fun actually begins with the third"tickle"session < table cellpadding="5"align="appropriate"Ten years later, T. M. X. Elmo (the X stands for 10) was unveiled towards the planet on Good Morning America on September 19. Even though now that all is known, the obvious question is: Does T. M. X. Elmo deserve the hype? Tickle Me Elmo is remembered as on the list of most difficult-to-find toys utilizing the 1996--or any--holiday season.
When you first take him out of his box, T. M. X. Elmo doesn't seem all that grand. Covered inside the soft red fur that 1 would expect from everyone's favorite Sesame Street character, T. M. X. Elmo stands an unimposing 14 inches tall. Even worse, he feels all difficult and plasticy under his fur. But this Elmo is not meant for cuddles or hand holding or swaddling. He looks right after all, well, like Elmo.
Sit T. M. X. Elmo down and hit one certain of his three"tickle"spots. There's one under his chin, one specific on his belly, and a single on top rated of his foot. Yes, this Elmo wiggles just like he did 10 years ago, but that's just the start. Elmo slaps his belly, falls forward with his butt sticking out, stands back up again only to topple backwards, kicks his legs over his belly, and after that stands right back up, all while laughing hysterically.
"Again!"< table cellpadding="5"align="appropriate"Again!
Elmo gets far more outrageous when you"tickle"him a second time, and the fun really begins with the third"tickle"session. His trademark voice builds into a fit of histrionics, endless snickers that drown out everything but an unintelligible cackle until even Elmo admits he has had too much. Elmo's fancy moves include falling over on his side, shimmying on his back, and what appears to be everyone's favorite: lying flat on his belly slapping the floor next to him as if he can't quit laughing. This Elmo has a severe case of the giggles.
T. M. X Elmo requires 6 AA batteries, that are included, although these wore down quickly in our review copy. He gets a small stuck on uneven surfaces but for essentially the most part performs amazingly nicely on carpet. On hardwood floors, Elmo works, but he occasionally slams his eyes on the floor inside a way that seems it should halt the show. Elmo also has an on/off switch, so the tickles might possibly be brought to an end when more than just Elmo has had too much. He moves a lot and requirements a little open space for the complete performance, although he does use his arm to figure out his orientation periodically and stand back up if nothing is within the way.
In the end, T. M. X. Elmo is undeniably a trooper. Early reviews show that this turbocharged version of Tickle Me Elmo will stick to the stellar path enjoyed by his much simpler predecessor. --David Morel
