Are you planning on buying the new elmo live doll for anyone on your Christmas list this year? Its suppose to be the new hot item this year and they are talking about it selling out. They sell for $60 in the store but are going for $100 on ebay. My friend found some and bought a couple to sell on ebay. The doll is suppose to talk, tell stories, dance, cross his legs and tell jokes. Here is a video of this things it will be able to do on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5Dvw51Rufk

luckily for me none of my children are into elmo so no I will not be buying one! I would not buy one anyway, my kids would only ruin it within the first few days.

My kids tend to destroy things also. I have 2 girls but they find a way to break stuff. I say they are not happy until they break something. Is that all kids or is it just mine?

I also think it is cute, but I won’t be buying it. Right now, it is too expensive. My daughter who is 4 use to like Elmo and she still does, but not as much as before so I can’t see spending $60 to $100 on the toy. She already has a bunch of Elmo talking dolls, such as the Tickle Me Elmo, TMX Elmo, Hokey Pokey Elmo, Limbo Elmo, and Rock Star Elmo. She likes playing with them right now.

we have alot of those same dolls and they don't get played with much. I want to look for things this year that will get used even though I thought that those would get played with. I think we had more fun with the TMX elmo then my child did. My daughter did play with the potty training elmo but I think she just likes the cup it came with.

I have seen them in the store. There were over a dozen of them in a display at Walmart the other day, so I guess they are not going too fast around here. I will not be buying it. Neither of my kids is into Elmo right now.

well hopefully they keep having alot at the stores to not start any kind of fights over the doll. I never even heard of it until a friend told me she bought 5 of them.

I actually just saw this doll, and it is very cute. But no I will not be buying it. The price is outrageous at least in this economy it is.

I agree with you. My kids are not really into Elmo right now. We have alot of elmo dolls already that don't get played with. I think if it was Dora that I would probably think about buying it b/c my 1 year old goes around saying Dora all the time.
