Toddler Tuesday: Hello, Elmo Calling!

Know a little someone who loves Elmo? Have a iPod/Phone/Pad or some other Mac device you can download apps? Get on this one!

Jack loves Elmo (As if you didn't know) and Scott found a really adorable app. We already have an Elmo iPad App called "Elmo Loves ABC's" which is very interactive and a great tool for teaching the alphabet.
Jack eagerly anticipating Elmo answering the phone!
This one is more Jacks speed because he is a pro at FaceTime so this was perfect. The whole concept is Elmo calls you to video chat and tells silly joke, blabbers about things and leaves you funny voicemail messages. Of course it's all contained within the app so you don't actually use phone capabilities or risk you child accidentally calling someone else!
It was really fun to watch Jack interact with Elmo and he was so excited when the phone would ring and Elmo would come on the screen.  I must say its less educational - but it was really funny for even adults to play with.  It even uses the forward facing camera to show you on the bottom left of the screen just like you're really FaceTiming.  Colour me impressed!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoying another post about our Elmo-and-iPad-loving Happily Hectic Household!
