I am a big collector of Elmo dolls. I do believe I have one of the largest collections around of Elmo dolls from the hard to find to the most latest doll created. I do have to say that the LOL Elmo Doll has become one of my favorites out of my huge collection and this one just come out this year for Christmas 2012. Kids that are into Elmo are really going to love this doll. Even collectors of Elmo like myself will love him just as much. The only thing I don't agree with is the value of the doll. [...] The doll is great though.
