Ratings and Reviews
My 2 year old son is the HAPPIEST when he gets a call from Elmo. The intro music— he’s dancing. The phone ring—- he’s screaming in excitement. The video calls— he’s fully engaged and talking and mimicking his motions. Absolute JOY with this app. I wish it was possible to record the video sessions just because of how cute my son is while interacting with Elmo. The “replay” button doesn’t work. I usually use this as a way to get my son to go to sleep, having Elmo tell him he’s going to sleep and that he should go to sleep too :) I wish after the phone call it didn’t go back to the app homepage, because my son sees Elmo again and is convinced he’s not sleeping anymore.
Love it but
I love the app but I’m 9 and you need to up the security on the parents section all you have to do is type the number above and I’m worried that one of the kiddos I babysit could easily get in and purchase packs but I love the app so much and this is a whole lot better than outfit7 apps (sorry Tom) I love the app
And I love that you can get a free call pack instead of having to pay for all of the packs you guys are awesome but there is one problem I don’t mind it sending me notifications for the scheduled calls but that doesn’t mean it can wake me up at 10:00 at night well that was really my fault cause I set the time wrong just a suggestion though otherwise I love the app and i can’t believe I’m saying this but I actually don’t mind spending my allowance on a call pack every couple of months cus I is so much fun so yeah bye
Son loves it
My sons loves this ! ...except when I schedule a phone call , I get a notification that he’s calling and then it disappears. And no call comes through. I tried to schedule for bath time or brushing teeth to help my son when he has a rough time. But it doesn’t work. Everything else is great. Is there a way to fix this
