This new Elmo toy debuted at the toy fair in New York City. It is the most life-like to-date. He dances, tells stories, and has automated responses to certain stimuli and words. I can say, with much certainty, this Elmo is at least as creepy as the guy presenting it. I would try as hard as I can to keep my children far, far away from either one. I got my hands on one and never turned it on; but, one night, I woke up in a cold sweat to see this thing thing leaning over me, making a noise that can only be described as heavy breathing. So, I decided to destroy him by setting the thing on fire, and I witnessed this reaction. I hear the noises he made while being burned every day… They are singed into my memory.

Harder to kill than T-1000
