I’m not on vacation, but Elmo is

I’m not going to lie to you—it’s more than okay with me that my kids have outgrown Elmo. You could say that I experienced Elmo Fatigue by the time my youngest was over him. But I suppose he is rather lovable and fuzzy, and also, anything that keeps a small child occupied for more than five minutes is okay by me.

So have you seen that the latest Elmo movie is being released on Tuesday (June 24th)? It’s called Sesame Street: Elmo’s World — Summer Vacation. It promises to be the sort of Elmo-riffic (totally a word) fun that drives your little kid wild.

I’m giving away 5 copies of the new Elmo movie, just because you’re pretty. Want to win one? Leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, June 23rd, 2008 to be entered for a chance to win. One entry per person, valid email address, etc. Winners to be determined by random drawing and Dorothy the goldfish.

Ready? Go!

  205. This would be a big hit at our house~

  206. I’m not on vacation either. Phooey. Elmo would cheer me up, though. Oh, I mean the kids, the kids would like him. Hee.

  226. My little one would love Elmo. Thanks!

  229. My daughter would be so excited!

  230. we’re elmo fans too

  231. I guess Elmos is not concerned about the surging price of gas or perhaps he is using his tax incentive check to go on vacation. Either way, it makes me sad that Elmo can afford to go on summer vacation but we can’t. Perhaps if we won this video, we could live vicariously through Elmo.

  232. My 19-month-old daughter loves Elmo so much, that she just has to let me know whenever “Elmo’s World” comes on during “Sesame Street.” She believes everyone else should love him, too.
