Someone once said to me that “a hug is the universal medicine” and I couldn’t agree more.
Do you remember all the times, good and bad, in your life where you received a warm and genuine embrace from someone? The feeling of receiving a hug during a time you need it most is indescribable. It’s something that is only felt deep within the heart.
One of the things I teach my children every time they see someone they care about feeling sad or when they want to show their love is to give them a great big hug.
My daughter is old enough to understand the effects and meaning behind hugs, however my son is too young to fully grasp the meaning but not young enough to truly feel the effects. There’s no age limit for that.
He knows how good hugs from mommy, daddy, his sister or grandparents feel when he’s fallen down and hurt himself or when he takes his wobbly steps as he learns to walk and gets happy praises and big hugs in celebration.
I’m now slowly compiling my holiday gift list for all the special people in my life and there is no doubt in my mind that Big Hugs Elmo would make one of those special little people on that list VERY happy this year.
- Hug Elmo and he’ll move his arms to hug back
- Pretend with Elmo: There are 4 fun imagination scenarios: astronauts, rabbits, frogs & horses
- Dance with Elmo: Move Elmo around – he really responds
- Sing along with Big Hugs Elmo: Plays 3 fun songs
- Nap time: Lay Elmo down to hear a sweet lullaby and sleeping sound effects
