    I noticed during my last visit to Build-a-Bear workshop that they now have an Elmo for sale. Do'nt know if anyone else has posted regarding this. All it would take is a little creativity and some free time and voila, you'd have a fairly decent Elmo repro. Here's a link:

    I plan to build Elmo really soon. Gonna get the materials this weekend. I'm gonna try to make him identical to the real Emlo. Now that I got my Grover done! :)

    please hold onto your pattern for the "elmo" head if you succeed in building elmo. I have been trying to make one for my niece and my daughter for a long time....needless to say.. i failed. or maybe i am too picky. Either way i am elmo-less. thanks.

    Maybe I'm ignorant, but is BABW doing Cookie Monster now? I need to go on their website again so I know, since I've been living under a rock (aka school) for a while.


    EDIT: WHOA! CM HIMSELF!!! WOO-HOO!!! (caps, got excited)

    Now if only they'd get Grover...
  12. Have you ever realized that there are Elmo fans here?:grouchy: :grouchy: And I happen to be one of them and I really do not appreciate you calling Elmo "Evil" and that he ruint Sesame Street. Well actually, I might be the only Elmo fan but there is still at least one Elmo fan here that posts. What is your favorite Sesame Street character? I should just call them Evil and say mean things about him.:grouchy:

    I may be a crazy Floyd fan, but I like elmo too (ok, less than Floyd) but how can anyone hate elmo? My dad can do a really good elmo voice. Its scary how good it is.:eek:
  14. Well, most people here hate Elmo. I learnt that when I first signed up and made my first post... I still stayed here though to try to bring Elmo to this forum. My dad trys to imitate Elmo to! lol. He is not very good at it but don't tell him that.

    Sgt Floyd Well-Known Member

    lol, I never try to imitate anything cause I always butcher the voices. Exept the pokemon bulbasaur...I do a really...oops, got off topic, sorry.

    I guess maybe alot of people think of elmo as a baby or a little kid.

    Well Seriously He Is Dropping The Age Of The Audience Before Elmo Came Sesame Street Rocked But Now Its A Bit Dull Play With Me Thats A Bit Weird And Although I Love Him And His Cute But Seriously

    I think one the reasons Elmo is so prominent is because they discovered that the average age of the show dropped. Their only goal is to educate their target audience and I think Elmo is one of those characters that does that really well.

    I miss the Sesame Street of childhood. :( Here's hoping for Classic Sesame DVDs! :)

    The funny thing is, my niece only turned 1 years old in november and around that time she started watching the Dutch Sesame Street. And what's weird is when either Elmo or Grover comes on she starts laughing and pointing at them saying "Look!, Look"! :) But she doesn't have that with the other characters. And usually it's Elmo that get's her to laugh. I'm guessing she just likes the way grover sounds etc. But Elmo's popularity amongst young children might be simply due to the fact that he's red. And red, in the laws of colorperspective, is the color wich compared to other colors will always force itself into the foreground. It's the object your attention moves to first.
