Everybody’s favorite viral moment— that is, the “Elmo Slide” from 2011— is back and better than ever in toy form!

The Sesame Street Elmo Slide feature plush from Just Play combines three of kids’ favorite things: dancing, singing, and games. When kids press Elmo’s left hand he starts dancing the iconic moves from the viral and ultra-catchy “Elmo Slide” video, moving front and back, side-to-side, and flapping his arms. 

Kids can also play “Elmo Says,” a version of the game Simon Says, by squeezing his right hand. Elmo will give kids instructions like, “Elmo says lift your arms up!” subtly encouraging active playtime. 

The 14-inch-tall Elmo Slide feature plush is intended for kids ages 2 and up. The easygoing and easily imitated dance moves make this a great option for kids who need a light, friendly nudge to get movin’ and groovin’. At $49.99, it can feel like a bit of a splurge for your little one, but the high quality easily justifies the price point, as does the thoughtfulness of its other features. For example, the toy is filled with 100% recycled polyester, and the four double A batteries required to make Elmo dance are included.

Plus, Elmo sings and speaks in both English and Spanish, providing an easy (and, most importantly, fun) way to learn either language or to brush up on pre-existing vocabulary.

One thing to make note of is the area of play. Kids should make sure to play with the Elmo Slide feature plush on a smooth surface, so that Elmo’s dance moves can be as effectively on-point as possible. But once you’ve secured the right place to play, kids can get down with this adorable Elmo Slide feature plush, and relive the viral sensation all year long!


This interactive plush sings, sways, flaps his arms, and glides to the song “Elmo Slide.” Encourages little ones to dance or play a game of Elmo Says. Features soft fabrics and hidden wheels for smooth moves, and speaks English and Spanish.
