Love it but  mrr 11  5 star

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

Great app  Evil ac  5 star

I would like a feature where you call Elmo and he doesn’t answer and it goes to voicemail. My son loves it and it would be he best way to get him off of it.

get it together and read this

Weeeee  get it together and read this  5 star

I used to love this app when I was little I just wanted to check and see how the process is and tell Elmo it’s your old friend


Could be great...not there yet  TSmithChas  3 star

I got this app to encourage my 3-year old to potty train. She loves it when Elmo calls to remind her to potty, but the scheduler won’t let me set up recurring calls during the day. One scheduled call a day doesn’t cut it. Every 30 minutes I have to open the app, turn the volume all the way down so that she doesn’t hear the home screen music (she’s on to me already), type in the “for grownups” code, and select the call I want. All day. She loves it, and I am growing to hate it.


I pay for this app  yasibeln  1 star

My son just gets bored so fast. I thought that there was more activities.


Bummer  Awsomeineishere  2 star

Just got and my 2 & a 1/2yr old is most upset, he can't talk to elmo he just wants to say hi but can't get a word in what kind of phone call is that... Would love my money back...


Adorable  Freestel  5 star

We have this on iPad and the kids just love having FaceTime with Elmo ;)


Awesome  Sal802212  5 star

Out of all the children's apps that we've downloaded this is the most favourite by far


Elmo calls is a hit with kids  Sweater76  5 star

I love this app, it keeps my little one busy for hours.


Absolute waste!  Ercal1987  1 star

Purchased this app and it wont even try to download to the ipad....not happy. Messaged developer several times over the last month with no response. Very disappointed!


Change the Answer button  jswl*  3 star

This REALLY needs 2 buttons side by side like an actual iPhone - Answer and End. In this app, the Answer button turns into the End button immediately after pressing it, which means the child repeatedly pressing the button opens the call then immediately closes it as the button changes. Super annoying. Otherwise a cute app!


Child loves it  MrsKCope  4 star

My daughter loves this app. You can buy more sayings for 99c a bundle. Bought two already. Also has an alarm so Elmore can ring them about waking up or brushing their teeth. Has packs about going to the potty too. Well worth it. Scarlett loves it. First app she picks.

Waste of money  Shooting birds at pigs  1 star

This app just stopped working one day. And no matter if I've deleted it and then downloaded it again it stopped working


Fun  Kate12.8  4 star

My cousin loves it!😀


Fun but  chrissy22tt  5 star

This a very fun thing for kids to enjoy, and ive no issue paying 1.99 for it. But wish we didnt have to pay for everything else, 0.99 cents adds up.
