My daughter just got the Tickle Me Elmo for her birthday. My wife knows I'm salivating for that thing once she (my daughter) no longer has interest in the little red monster. My wife has warned me not to even think about turning Elmo into a prop until my daughter is done with it. But each time the kid plays with him, I can't help but grin at the possibilities. I can't wait for the day I get to dissect Elmo.
