Tickle Me Elmo

I saw a demonstration of the new Tickle Me Elmo doll on Good Morning America yesterday. They sent him through all three levels of hilarious laughter. Very impressive!

Suggested retail price is under fifty dollars. I predict the price will double, perhaps triple and more depending on how close you are to December 25 this year.

A word to the wise, if you are considering purchasing one of these dolls, make sure you buy plenty of batteries. Those hatches at the bottoms of both of his feet are battery access hatches. I suspect he takes D cells and more than just one per foot.

Ooops, my mistake. He takes six AA batteries. I bet they need frequent replacement.

This would would be as good a time as any to invest in a recharger and some rechargeable batteries

If you have any money left over this season (HA!!!), you might also buy some stock in a company that manufactures batteries. Battery disposal companies might also do well.

As a parting thought, speculators might want to load up on a few of these dolls before parents have a chance to clear the shelves of stock. I bet a genuine doll will bring big bucks after the cheap knock-offs start shipping from some place in China.
