Elmo has become one of the most popular characters on the children's television program known as Sesame Street, which means that toys featuring Elmo are popular with children. The Playskool Sesame Street Elmo Guitar is a great opportunity for parents to give their children a musical toy that not only helps them to expand their creative horizons, but also gets them excited about play because the toy features one of their favorite television characters.
The Playskool Sesame Street Elmo Guitar is a toy in a basic guitar shape that has four play strings and several different ways to make music. Your children can use the strings to make musical sounds, or they can play along to the pre-recorded library of music.
There are five different colored buttons on the fretboard that light up when the music is played, and a knob that allows your child to cycle through three different playing modes. This is a compact design that will fit right into your child's hands.
The manufacturer has decided that there are small parts on this toy that, if they become dislodged, can become choking hazards for young children.

Parents should be aware of choking hazards associated with any toy their child plays with and monitor play for their child's safety.
The retail price set for this rocking toy is $29.99, but that price does not include shipping charges or applicable sales tax as added by the retailer. Parents should look around for price discounts or promotions that might help to lower the overall purchase price of this product.
