Kids. They just do not appreciate the scenes when Elmo slaps his knee and sits on the floor, laughing hysterically or rolls over onto his tummy and slaps the floor giggling. I could watch that 100 times. Oh, I see now, the T.M.X. Elmo is not for kids he is for grown-ups.

The price that Fisherprice set for the T.M.X. is an affordable $40. On Amazon.com the price is already over 3 times as high with stores offering the TMX Elmo for $149.99. On eBay the T.M.X is under the 10 most popular items, which makes things not easier on getting your hands on one. Buy it Now prices are around $100.

T.M.X. Elmo requires 6 AA batteries and is approx. 15 inch tall.
