What It Is
What It Is
Elmo's friends are hiding, and Elmo needs kids to help find them. Pull the purple lever on the Hide 'n Seek Pals playset, and Elmo will ask kids to look behind the windows to find Cookie Monster, Big Bird, Ernie, and Abby Cadabby. Each of the windows has a color and number on it, and Elmo will give kids clues about which window to open using those colors and numbers. Once you find Elmo's friends, close the windows, and pull the lever again to make Elmo's friends hide again in different windows.
Why It’s Fun
Preschoolers will enjoy the surprise of opening a window and seeing which Sesame Street character is behind it. Hide 'n Seek Pals helps reinforce listening skills as preschoolers follow directions from Elmo to open up the correct window. The toy also helps kids practice memory skills and number and color recognition.
Who It’s For
Hide 'n Seek Pals is for ages 18 months to 4 years.
What to Be Aware of
Two AA batteries are included, but these are for in-store try-me purposes. Hasbro recommends replacing the batteries before you play for best results.
The youngest kids will be surprised by the changing characters, so play will be random, but as they understand the way it works, they'll be intrigued by the change. Parents and caregivers can add to the fun with co-play activities such as asking kids to guess where they think different characters will appear.
This toy is a little loud and has no volume control.
Hide 'n Seek Pals is part of a Sesame Street-themed line of infant and preschool toys from Hasbro's Playskool brand.
