We love this app. To your little one, it is just like they are having a FaceTime conversation with Elmo.

Our (almost) 2-year-old loves what this app has to offer, but I have a feeling he will get tired of it as he gets older. There isn’t a lot of variation in the base version of the app, and the “call” is very short.

You can even schedule calls for different situations, such as a doctor’s visit, bath time or learning to use the potty. Elmo is his usual cheerful and encouraging self in the app. We love that Canaan loves such a cheerful character!

What I like:

•          Cheap

•          Elmo is so cheerful

•          Fun

What I don’t like:

•          Short conversations

•          Only a few options in the basic version

•          Sometimes has glitches
