My son, Mister, is a huge Elmo fan. He has an Elmo tool bench, Elmo tools, Elmo guitar, Elmo chair, etc, etc, etc. So, needless to say, I was thrilled when I received the opportunity to review Elmo’s newest DVD, The Best of Elmo 2 on DVD, which is set for release on May 4, 2010 for $14.98 SRP. I knew that it would make Mister’s day to have a new Elmo DVD.
The Best of Elmo 2 is a product of Warner Home Video (WHV) and Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street.

The robot is a Memorybot and needs memories to power up again. Elmo helps him out by sharing some of his favorite memories of his special times with friends like Jason Mraz, Adam Sandler, Destiny’s Child, David Beckham, India Arie, The Goo Goo Dolls, Feist and many more. This DVD will give moms and their children alike the opportunity to relive these classic moments over and over.
What I love…
Mister loves this DVD. He gets out his First Act guitar and strums along with the music. Since he is learning how to count and his ABC’s, I love the reinforcement the DVD offers. I also love that David Beckham gives a little lesson on persistence.
What I would change…
Absolutely nothing. It isn’t often that I can stand watching the same DVD several times in a row, but this one is an exception.
Where you can buy it…
If you don’t already own it, you can pick up the classic 1994 collection The Best of Elmo for @12.99 at the Sesame Street Store and then follow it up with The Best of Elmo 2 for $14.98 at the Sesame Street Store.
