Pizza Party Elmois by far my kids’ favorite Hanukkah gift this year. And it is on sale big-time at Amazon.com, reduced to a mere $7.50 (I paid $29.99). Yes, I know I often blog about high-quality, European, wooden toys. But sometimes you just can’t argue with your kids when they want Elmo. Mine are smitten with this dancing, opera-singing Elmo who serves (a talking) pizza in a cardboard diorama of a pizza parlor. I must say that Elmo and his talking pizza are growing on me. And at this price I will stock up on a few as birthday gifts for toddlers and preschoolers. Buy one (or more) for your own gift-giving while it’s on sale (and eligible for free shipping) at Amazon.com.
