The Elmo Craze
Does anyone know the psychology behind Elmo? Why is he the favorite of all of the Sesame Street characters now? I assume he's the favorite anyway because he seems to be the one featured on things like diapers, he seems to be the one with the most toys out, he has his own videos and books, and all kids seem to love his song (Elmo's Song). Is it because he sounds like a little kid? Is it because he's red? Is it because he lives in a house that looks like a page from a coloring book? I KNOW it can't be because he's friends with Mr. Nuno (What the heck is up with that guy? What a weirdo!)!
Any insight into how Elmo has captivated our children?
