Elmo loves a sidesplitting, rolling-on-the-floor gigglefest. And preschoolers will too with LOL Elmo. He laughs up a storm, tells jokes, and comes with a Dorothy fishbowl squeaker toy for even more silly fun. The more Elmo laughs, the more he rolls and shakes. To see Elmo giggle, press either of his feet or tickle his tummy. To hear Elmo tell a silly joke, just press and hold either foot for 3 seconds. Each time his foot is pressed, he'll tell another joke. To activate Elmo using Dorothy's fishbowl squeaker, hold it approximately 6 inches from his tummy, then give it a squeeze.
