Toy Fair the toy industries major toy showcase is going on this
week in New York City.

Our sources tell us that there will be no major new Elmo
doll released or displayed at the show.

The newest Elmo item is a pair of hands that are like gloves that
will fit on a kids hands. The gloves start working when Elmo's nose is pushed.
Also when touching an object with the hands they vibrate and Elmo will talk and giggle.
There are motion sensors in the gloves. The gloves will include a DVD with a new Elmo
dance that the hands can recognize. The retail should be in the $30.00 range.

That does not mean that there won't be any new Elmo dolls this year.
As we know many dolls are released without any information coming
from Fisher-Price or Mattel. So keep checking the stores.

updated with lots of new monsters including the newest
Many Hugs Elmo and new easier navigation links have been added.

Also check out Assortment #93131 in the

updates sooner and on a more consistant basis in 2009.
