Let’s Rock! Elmo & Swirling Shake Shoppe

There are two things in this world my two love right now… Elmo and Play-Doh. Fortunately for them Hasbro asked us to take a peek at two of these fun toys!

Let’s Rock! Elmo is a fun animated toy that bops along to the music with your child all the while playing a musical instrument. Elmo will play his tambourine, drums or hold a microwave and jam out!

Product Description:

It’s music time! Rock out with LET’S ROCK! Elmo Dressed in a concert-style tee, Elmo takes the stage singing and making music – and preschoolers can too! Elmo comes with his very own microphone and two instruments – a tambourine and a drum set. Preschoolers can choose which instrument Elmo plays, and he “magically” recognizes which one you give him. Kids can also play along on Elmo’s instruments – they’re perfectly sized for little hands! For even more rockin’ fun, Elmo also interacts with other LET’S ROCK! instruments (each sold separately); he knows when you’re playing the LET’S ROCK! Guitar, Keyboard or Microphone and plays along with you! The LET’S ROCK! Elmo toy sings six rockin’ songs, so grab an instrument and join Elmo’s band! This toy also helps encourage development of Fine Motor Skills, Gross Motor Skills, Imagination, Sensory Development and Creativity


I had some adorable video of Ethan playing with Elmo, but somehow it disappeared when I emptied my memory card *sob*. Elmo plays his own music and sings as well as plays the drum or tambourine. There are sensors on his body that will tell him which instrument you’ve given him as well as the microphone. I have to tell you, I honestly thought Elmo might be a little over my kids age bracket. I am here to tell you that at 4 and 5 1/2, they fight over Elmo. Yep. I had initially told them Elmo would live in Ethan’s room but I have been finding Elmo hidden in secret places in Emma’s room because she sneaks him to play with alone. Super cute.

Check out the video to see Elmo in action!


We were also sent Play-Doh Swirling Shake Shoppe to review.

Playing with Swirling Shake Shoppe

Emma and Ethan have recently become Play-Doh pros. When I brought this set to the table they went straight to work creating their own work of art shakes. As you can see, Ethan is making a blue raspberry shake for me to enjoy.

Play-Doh Play Set

Here Emma is swirling her own creation. If you put two colors in the mixer it will come out the bottom like a swirled ice cream cone. Years ago mixing two Play-Doh colors might have bothered me, but seeing the enjoyment these two get from being ultra creative it worth having to replace Play-Doh on occasion because you can no longer identify the true color. To be honest, the kids really don’t care what color their Play-Doh ends up as… it’s all fun!

    This Elmo looks like fun. I remember what a hit the Tickle Me Elmo was.

  2. Trisha McKee says

    The Elmo sounds so fun! I love that he is interactive. He was cute as Tickle Me Elmo, but this seems like kids would get more out of him!

  3. I love the Shake Shoppe. My granddaughter loves to help me cook. This will be a safe way for us to make food at any time.

  4. That is just too cute. My 8 granddaughters just love Elmo.

  5. Carrie says

    They both look so fun! I don’t have any children yet, but I remember loving to play with playdoh!

  7. Patricia Williams says

    Playdough is a new obsession at our house. I put the boys at their little table outside and they are very happy for quite awhile. I am hoping we can continue in the house come winter. This looks like a fun set for a christmas gift.
