- Love Elmo!

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

- Won’t let me purchase all calls package.

I’m potty training my almost two year old and we love using this app as an incentive to go on her potty! She’ll sit there and get calls from Elmo and just chat and babble with him. It has really helped us, but I would LOVE to get all the calls, especially the ones that tell her it’s time to go potty or the other one telling her that she did a good job going on the potty! So please fix! Thank you! I’ll be happy to change rating to 5 stars once this issue is fixed, because she is infatuated with Elmo and his calls.

- Elmo Call

This app is made for four year olds and older . My grandson loved it as a baby when he was able to crawl . Now he is two and Elmo is one of his favorite friends he makes time for to answer his call . He get more phone calls from Elmo in a short period time than I get on my cell phone all week long .

- Elmo Calls is A Godsend for Business Travelers

We’ve all been there: you’re on a flight next to a little one who is just melting down and no amount of consoling by Mom or Dad helps. Pull out this app - toddlers are immediately fascinated and will spend forever interacting with Elmo (and giving everyone else in earshot a break — everybody wins!)

- Elmo calls is very Cute but 1 things missing

It’s very heartwarming to hear Elmo Calling me. However there’s one thing missing: I want the ability to set up certain calls on certain times/Days like Elmo calling a birthday call on my birthday.

- Elmo Calls Rocks!! hooray!!! keep up the great work!

my family enjoys Elmo Calls and Cookie Monster calls! the attention to detail makes this app real and opens the imagination of everyone!!! we love love it! we wake up to Elmo especially and its hard to stay grumpy although a Oscar Calls would be funny’

- Great app

My daughter love this app, she's a big sesame place fan. This app actually helps me out a lot once my daughter starts her tantrum she'll forget why she's crying once she Elmo voice. Lol , overall this is a great app for kids. I recommend this app for anyone.

- Best app ever!!!

I would really recommend getting this app because you can talk to Elmo about everything for example robots, ducks and lots of other things l would recommend this app totally for 4 years and up!!!!!😀

- Why a 5 stars?

My son love this he gets to call my favorite character and my daughter does to it’s so cool because when there sad or mad Elmo makes them happy and I throw it to the tv which is soooo much better.

- Scheduled Calls Need to Come Through

My four year old loves Elmo’s phone calls. There is a flaw in this app, when you schedule a call from Elmo, it’s really just a notification and not an actual call.

- Pack are great but to expensive

My baby loves this app but I wish We didn’t have to pay the price of the app AND pay 7$ for the other pack but other then that it is fantastic!

- Great app

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.

- Great fun

My son loves this app. It is not able to update for the past two weeks and we are not able to use it now.

- Crashing

The app keeps crashing ! Fix please, I paid for it! Other than that the app is good when it works!!

- Awesome

I got this for my brother and he is in love with it but it has way to much in app purchases you pretty much have to buy everything

- My little sister

My little sister loves Elmo so thank you for making this app it makes her happy all the time thank you

- My 2 Year Old totally thinks she’s really chatting w/ Elmo

This is well done & the calls make me laugh too. Pricy but worth it for all the smiles & giggles it brings for me & my baby girl.

- Weeeee

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

- Fantastic

My granddaughter who just turned one loves Elmo as did her father years ago. She loves seeing Elmo each day on my phone ! Thank you !

- Great!

Both my kids love this app! I love that it doesn't require data or have in app purchases!

- So cute!

My baby girl just lights up when Elmo calls. I love the little box on the screen to show her reactions to Elmo's silliness. Love this app!

- Recording Video?!?

Why can’t I record my son’s reactions to video calls?!? This seems silly that I can’t record it.

- Scheduled calls don't work

I like this app and so does my daughter but spent money on the pack of daily activities so I could schedule a bedtime call but it doesn't work.

- My little sister loves Elmo

My sister loves this she will try to take my moms phone away from my hands.

- Doesn’t work anymore

My kids used to LOVE this app, but with the latest iOS update, it will no longer open. Please update it! My 18 month old is dying to catch up with her bestie, Mel-mo 😜

- Amazing!

I love the app so much! I am 9 and my baby sister goes crazy when Elmo calls! It is so adorable! She loves the app so so so much and it’s gust so cool! And ya so bye!

- iOS 13.1

Works again with the new update

- Simple and easy to use

My daughter loved it. Great for little ones to learn FaceTime.

- Elmo

You need to add some new calls, these are getting old.

- Enjoyed by 2 year old

My son enjoys this very much. Needs an update for new iPhone X.

- This is amazing!

Why did we not think of this sooner????

- Too simplistic to charge

Thought this was going to be more interactive for my 3YO but it’s a passive experience. My son got over this in a couple of minutes. Free with in-app purchases would be more customer friendly. Asking for a refund.

- Doesn’t work

Half the time the FaceTime screen where Elmo is supposed to be is black and it doesn’t work. I’ve tried closing out of the app and everything and still doesn’t fix anything

- Love it

My almost 3 year old son Loves it ... he believes elmo is calling and he interacts adorably with him ... great idea for an app ... chapeau

- Great

Daughter loves this app. Could use more calls, tho.

- one of the best things on things on the iPad!!!

I love how it has deferent calls!! Note: I am six

- She always asks for Elmo

Every time my daughter sees my phone, she asks to calm Elmo. What a great idea!

- Crashes on IOS 13 works on 13.1

Does not with on iOS 13 and iPhone 6s. Update works on 13.1

- My girl sat still!

She actually sat still while eating her dinner!

- Amazing

My one year old is obsessed with Elmo he loves this app!

- Best thing

My 1 year old sister loves this game

- Fun app for kids!

Very cute interface - just like FaceTime!

- orks with 13.1 now. Can’t seem to get the camera to work.

Works with 13.1 now. Can’t get camera to work. Any tips?

- Call Elmo

This app is so good,’cause you can call Elmo anytime!I love Elmo,I’d like to call him!

- Hahahahhahahahhahahah

I’m 7 it’s so funny because elmos so stupid

Force closing immediately when attempting to open. Deleted and downloaded again, same result. Running iOS 13, iPhone 8.

- Does not open

App doesn’t open. Just crashes when trying to launch.

- Fantastic and great fun for the little ones

Absolutely love this app, my niece gets so excited! Only problem is I paid for the "all calls" package but havent received them all? I don't want to report this as a problem as the app is fine, can you fix this somehow?

- Change the Answer button

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!

- Great for nappy change time

Fantastic app. My little one has a huge grin on his face everytime I turn it on. He is going through a real troublesome stage with nappy change at the moment (wriggler), but Elmo calls really helps to keep him occupied!

- Wonderful

This app is brilliant. Only thing is I purchased the all calls pack but when I go into the gallery of calls (I think that's what it is called) nothing worked, it was all blank. The same thing happens when I try to schedule calls, nothing is there. Please fix this.

- Brilliant!!

My 10 month old loves it and he can't accidentally exit it because of the parent access set up (unlike many other aps)

- Child loves it

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.

- Awesome

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

- Great app

This is a great app it is just a pity that it doesn't open itself when a call is scheduled or when it is on charge. All you get is a notification to say that there is a call there.

- All calls

I brought this app & them i brought all the calls in the app for $5.99 & then the next time my daughter went to use this app it told me i had to buy all the calls again i either want my money back or all the calls on this app given back grrr.

- Elmo calls is a hit with kids

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

- She loves it

My 17 month old baby girl loves calls from Elmo, shame u have to buy the others after the first few, still worth it though.

- Great application

My 1 year old and 4 year old love it. Pity there weren't more videos but there is an option to buy more for a small fee. Worth it.

- Lots of laughs!

My friends 2yo has has just found his new favourite app! He cracks up laughing at the one where Elmo blows his nose like a trumpet! Haha

- Great!!

This is so much fun and the only kids app that our 17 month old really laughs with. We love it too.

- Lost sound

I lost sound on this app 2 days after i purchased it. Has anyone had this problem? My 2 year old loves this app, but its usless when there is no sound.......

- Cute

My 14 month old granddaughter loves this app. We are having a lot of fun with it. About time someone thought about an app suitable for very young children.

- Great fun

My 2 year old loves this app and we have had great fun doing some of the activities with Elmo

- Not bad

A good distraction for the baby but is pretty buggy, crashes alot & could be easier to access all the paid extra vids and audio.

- Great

The big problem is I can never get my phone back. Our boy loves it

- Love love love this app

My little 2 yr old loves this only just got it today but no trouble as yet fingers crossed but so far love :)

- A+++

My 2 year old niece loves this app. I can't get her to give me my phone back.

- Elmo Calls

Liked the app, great fun for kids... But! Just to make it more fun for the adults, it would be great if the alarm component caused the phone to ring so that people who answer it would be greeted by Elmo!

- Not much to it

Perhaps I haven't yet worked out how to get the most out of this app but it's pretty basic and my 20 month old tires of it easily.

- Mr Markmark

My 18 month old won't give my phone back she LOVES it good work

- Elmo needs more than a hug...

Woeful. All the basic 'calls' crashed..waste of money. Avoid. Sad to see this sort of thing associated with Sesame Street which is normally quality. Never had an app crash on Ipod before this one....

- Bummer

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...

- Absolute waste!

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!

- Face time

Good app, my daughter loves it but all calls should be face time calls.

- Good app

Not that much to it. Thinking about purchasing the upgrade.

- Ms

My son loved Elmo calls and quietly so did I, we love Elmo great app for kids

- Waste of money

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

- Fantastic App

My 19 month old loves this app!!!

- My baby brother loved it!!!

My 2 year old brother thought it was cool to call Elmo!

- Great

My sister loves this app it is so cute but personly I think it is overpriced it should be 0.99c

- Great app

The 18 month old loves it

- Save your money

My 19 month old loved this for 2 days. 3 years on he still has no interest at all

- Best app ever

Both my kids LOVE it

- My daughter loves this app.

So cute. The FaceTime style is great.

- Awesome

My 20 month old boy looooves this app!

- Hey

My 19 month old loves this app

- Crashhhhhhhh...

An "All calls" refresh crashes the app. Elmo's call crashes the app. Makes one wonder, in spite of its branding, if this crapp is really sesame street and ideo's.

- Great

My daughter loves it

- Great teaching tool

Thanks Elmo!!

- Kids love it

Lots of fun - kids love it.

- Great for 3yr old monsters

Fun app

- Incorrect pricing

I downloaded this app for my daughter to help motivate her in different areas and it worked really well with that. What I really did not anticipate or appreciate was when I bought the ‘All Calls’ pack (listed for $6.99) it turned out to be incorrectly priced and I ended up being charged $11.29 after taxes. As a business practice this is misleading and very frustrating. Please make sure your price is listed correctly. I would not have purchased the call pack if I had have known how expensive it would be.

- Stick to what’s free, the pay calls are not the same

Got this for my son which he absolutely loves... decided after a few weeks of the same “FaceTime” calls that I would upgrade so he can have a lot more of these calls with Elmo. Well, $9.99 later 85% of the new calls are just voice based, no video like they get you with. Pretty disappointed that he only wants to see Elmo and it takes 22 calls to get to one now.

- Waste of money.

All this app is is a collection of videos of Elmo talking. There is no interaction as the description implies. My daughter was bored after 2 “calls” and asked to play something else. Wish I never purchased this.

- So Cute!

So cute and interactive. My son loves that his best friend talks to him on the phone :)


My 2 year old daughter looks forward to the calls. She is so happy to hear his voice. She jumps and screams. It's amazing ❤️⭐️

- Love it!

I bought the "all call" pack, and it's incredible. My seven-month old loves it and lolz when Elmo calls!

- Obsessed!!!

My 20 month old daughter is obsessed with Elmo and this app makes life a whole lot easier!!! So much fun and user friendly! We just LOVE it!! Elmo Calls is one of the best child apps around!!!

- Meh!

C.R.A.S.H.E.S. 'Can't even let my son play with it. Crashes right away after answering phone calls within app. 'Have restarted; 'have reinstalled [on iPhone 4, IOS 5.1]. For a Sesame Street app this is just unacceptable (esp. after buying the other packs 😨😣😖😠).

- No sound + crash!!!

There is no sound and crash often

- Awesome

This app is so awesome

- Does not work!!

There is no sound at all this app is completely broken!!

- Elmo

Could have more but is really great and my son loves to hear from elmo.

- Doesn't always work

The incoming calls are just silence :(.

- Awesome, just requires money

My son loves this app, but he does get bored of the free calls after awhile. You would have to pay more to get extra calls, but I decided to anyway, since he loves Elmo.

- Happy

This is very cute! Good for the younger as they can just sit and watch.

- Nice app

Very cute. "Conversations" could be a little longer. Nice app.

- Great for toddlers

My 1.5 year old loves to FaceTime with Elmo - especially love the healthy habits pack. It's been a great app to have on my phone. Also amazing customer service from the company. They've been very helpful in problem solving issues

- Not downloading

I bought all apps for Elmo Calls and i am charged for it but it won't download

- Giggles Galore!

My two year old daughter loves this app, and I love watching her play! Talking with Elmo is non-stop giggles for her!

- I'm glad you took my suggestions!!

About a month ago, I think - I wrote a review giving credit for such a good app. But, I asked that you consider changing the way that favourites are accessed, and that the parents menu not be such a pain to get into. I just accessed the Elmo Calls with the new update and it is absolutely everything it should be!! The favourites are so much easier to access, having him be able to do it has made my life much easier!! Thank you for the great update and taking my suggestions into account!!

- ellmo

i love this game

- Really!!!

I pay $.99 for this game and the hole thing isn't even unlocked I would ask for a refund but she likes it I just wish there was more for her to do

- Elmo

Best App Ever:)

- Gimme my money back!

No coffee today.

- Good app

My daughter likes the app and enjoys talking to Elmo! The only thing I was hoping the app had was more variety...

- Paid demo app

Paid for the app to find it is not full featured... Need to purchase additional features.

- Terrible - Video constantly shuts down

Video calls will not open. Constantly shuts down.

- Love Elmo 😊

My toddler loves to talk to elmo

- Fun, But Update Not Thoroughly Thought Out By Developers

I purchased this app some time ago for my then 5 month old daughter. She loves Elmo and touching buttons to see what happens on the screen. However, I haven't let her play with the app since the update in September. The update allowed the user to simply press and hold to access the Parents Menu. The previous version required you to drag an icon across the screen for access. My little one seems to be constantly entering the menu more now and attempting to purchase additional call packs. Please change the way this menu is to be accessed!! My 10 month old is too young to be racking up my credit card.

- Excellent

My son loves this app. I love it too when he's trying to wrestle out of a diaper change, I ask him if he wants to call Elmo. He will actually lay still!

- Love this app!

My 2 1/2 year old daughter absolutely loves this app! She enjoys talking to Elmo and interacts with him really nicely. The only comment I would have, is that it would be great to turn off the parts of the phone call that don't have an interactive Elmo as she's not interested in a colored screen with Elmo's voice.

- Love This!

My toddler loves talking on the phone !!

- Broken for ipad mini

Please fix

- Kids love it!!!!

Kids love playing this app

- Granny Tammy

My granddaughter LOVES this app. It's so cute to watch her communicate with Elmo

- Birthday call?

I'd love it if there was a special call from Elmo for my daughters birthday!

- 10 month old loves it!

She started liking her elmo toys so I got this app and she loves it. She only watches it for a little before moving on to something else but she smiles whenever it comes on!

- Please Fix

My 2-year old daughter loves this app but one day she became upset because everytime she tries to answer elmo's call, the screen goes blank! We hope to see elmo again very soon!

- Great App

My one year old absolutely loves getting FaceTime calls from Elmo, he is absolutely mesmerized. Only problem was app crashed on start up but if you close the app, double click your home button, and when the Elmo app shows up press and hold it until it starts to shake and then tap it, then open the app and it usually resets it. Good iOS 6 secret 😉

- Elmo Calls

This is a fun innovative and creative app for young toddlers and babies! It is most diffidently a must have!!!!!

- Baby loves Elmo

My baby loves it a lot. He points at my iPhone and asks me to call Elmo

- This App is a LIFESAVER

My little man can't get enough of Elmo... Or Elbow as he calls him. (He's only 18 months) but whenever he gets a little fussy we just have Elmo call and all is well again. Great on planes etc. lots more downloadable content too, some of which is FREE! Overall awesome. I'm totally getting the Cookie Monster one too 😃

- Fix!!!

Please update so this app works again!!! My daughter gets very disappointed expecting Elmo to answer and the screen goes blank every time.

- Impressed

Great app.. My daughter loves it!!!

- Not a happy camper

What is up please fix the bugs in this app My daughter loves this n when she answers the phone it goes black n back to home

- Was fine at first...

Until the real man that voices Elmo called my home asking for my teenage son. Unacceptable.

- Terrible app!

I think you should get more for having to pay for this app. You only get 4 options of calls and 1 schedule which is at 7am. That's ridiculous!

- Doesn't work with 6.1

This app worked great with my iphone 5 until I did a software update. Will not work with 6.1 software on your iPhone!! Please fix! My daughter loves this app!

- Elmo calls

Good for kids. Very impressed.

- Really fun!

My 15 month old really enjoys this. I wish the 99 cent version came with a few more calls. It is great that the calls are like Skype and FaceTime because we get to practice not touching the screen or smashing the home button while we are 'talking'. The only thing that would make this app better is if it disabled the home button until an adult unlocked it from inside the app to close it out, that way it could serve as a toddler lock for the phone.

- My son loves it

Entertain him non stop

- Don’t buy.

I bought this app for my son and it don’t even work. I can’t even get it to open.

- So fun!!

My 21 mo old thinks this is the best thing ever!

- Woah!

What a waste of money.. it’s the shortest phone call and you pay every time... just show tour kids a video

- Elmo ❤️ calls

I love Elmo.I just got this app and I call cute Elmo, even though it is not virtual.I always get a call from Elmo.❤️Elmo & 🍪Cookie monster calls from 123 sesame street!

- I pay for this app

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

- Perfect for toddlers

My girls LOVE that they get "calls" from Elmo!

- Kids love it

Kids love it

- Not worth $1.99

Elmo calls 3 diffrent phone calls and all the same

No lessons for your kids no leaning at all

- Vertical only

Won’t rotate

- Great app

It is a great app

- App failing

App failing after ios13 release

- Great app

Wonderful app, my son loves getting calls from Elmo. I have not had any problems with crashing. For those complaining about problems with the sound, take the phone off mute and turn up the volume, that worked for me. If I could change one thing about this app, it would be to introduce the capability to turn off certain calls. The app contains video and voice calls and let's face it, a voice call is just not as much fun as the video call. I can see the disappointment in my son's face when one comes up so I hang up on Elmo real quick and hit the button to get another one. I tried marking the video calls as favorites in the app preferences but that hasn't seemed to help any. Great app, release more video calls!

- Elmo Calls is GREAT!

My 2 year old loves talking to Elmo and he especially loves face time talking with Elmo. I have had this app since the first day it was released and it has not crashed at all also all the different calls work perfectly. I would recommend this app to any parent whose children like Elmo and talking on the phone. Note to unlock all the calls it costs $4.99 in addition to the .99 cent cost of the app. I think they should've mentioned that in the description but I didn't mind paying the extra 4.99$ for all the calls. Elmo Calls is worth 6$ for all the calls and features that are available. Your children will love talking with Elmo.

- Not Enough Variation

I purchased this app for my grandson. He is two, and he normally loves Elmo. I wish I had been able to try a free version first, I wouldn't have bought it. The game is gets boring fast, as there is very little variation, and minimal interaction for the child. Children generally love seeing what happens when they push different buttons, and the only button for them to push in this game isn't even Elmo (which is where my grandson kept trying to push with no results), it's a green button, with the word "answer" on it. Honestly, I thought there would be more to this app, even for only 99 cents. There are much better apps available on the market for free. Overall, I'm quite , and my grandson barely played with it at all.

- Buggy and doesn't tell you the cost upfront

For on the app doesn't work on the iPhone 3G. What do you think I'm going to go out and buy the latest device for my toddler to play with? Come on. Also having in app purchases for all the features. Lame and sketchy. Since installing the app my phone is constantly asking me to put in my iTunes password for a purchase but I have not selected to purchase anything in the app. The app crashed constantly, do you think someone wants to purchase a buggy app much less spend money on in app purchases. You should have a flat price for the app and have all the features available upfront. I don't want to have to turn off in app purchases so my so can use the app without racking up my credit card. Delete!

- Scheduled calls

The HI call, which I picked to introduce Elmo to my sons, played a random call from one of the package I bought (it was the letter "P"?!). My sons are from the FaceTime/Skype generation and they were not so thrilled about the simple animation instead of seeing Elmo talking to them. Also, I bought the happy habits package and I was looking forward the "scheduled calls" to help on the "time to brush your teeth". The app (opened or closed) never initiated a call. I've run a few tests and the calls just never comes. it turns itself to off after the scheduled time passed, even though we set it to run on weekdays. I'm going to try to run more tests but so far it has failed to impress anyone in my house.

- Very Cute

It's a very sweet idea, and when Elmo is on, it is well done.☺️ I would only say the constant music on the home page is unnecessary, no value added and after the first time it is really annoying. Also like so many apps now you can't see what your are paying for and what you don't get until you buy it. The in app purchase option is scary bc I can't find a price before they want password eeek! It seems like a lot of the apps do this now.... such a shame.....just doesn't feel good or honest. This causes me to stop supporting apps bc I feel taken advantage of. 😰

- This app is great

I downloaded this to keep my kids entertained while we were out and about, and while they were getting their hair cut (which is the end of the world for them). The first time I showed it to them, they giggled a bit, but after a few times of actually letting them play with it (got over my fear of letting my two year old and my three year old handle my iPhone) they really started to enjoy it. Thanks to who ever developed this one!

- Cute App

This is a cute app for my daughter. But the new update doesn't look like an "iPhone," phone call. Before it looked like you were really receiving a phone call, the format looked the same as my other calls. Now it looks entirely different. Also some of the videos don't play at all, like the "Surprises," video, it never plays and shuts down when I attempt to play it. Otherwise it's a fun app just need to work out some kinks and the "original look," was better because it looked like Elmo was really calling you. Hope this helps Thanks!

- My 18 month old loves it

Super cute app that looks like FaceTime! I like that I can see her smiling face while she "talks" with Elmo. The video calls are a huge hit, but she gets bored of the voice only ones. There's also a feature to automatically call you at a certain time so Elmo can talk to you about brushing teeth or bedtime. Haven't used yet, but seems like that will come in handy when's she's a little older. Pleased with purchase.

- Avoid the "Hola" call, it has a bug.

The call entitled "Hola" in the Laugh with Elmo package will freeze the app. Even if you close and re open, it will run strangely for a while and the screen will be sidewise. It is the only call that I've experienced this with and have tested it multiple times. Even if the call comes up randomly this will happen. Otherwise, amazing app to keep toddlers occupied, especially for anything involving waits.

- Was disspoint

I am a 17 year old virgin and let me just say that this was one of the worst purchases I have ever made. First off it's not even a real Elmo he was just a recording and on top of that the recording were at least 5 to 15 seconds long. Not amused Secondly every time I would speak to good old buddy o friend o pal o mine Elmo would not respond with a valid response to my questions and responses. Sadly not amused Finally on top of purchasing the app I found of that I had to make a further purchase for more various calls Also why did you change cookies monster name? I don't like that. fix it Overall I think that this game is about a 10 outta 10 So finally I hope you can fix these various problems thank you for your time :)

- Elmo's Calls

Originally I purchased the "all call package" and it wouldn't download. Tried several times over several weeks. Contacted the website for support a couple of times and finally asked for a refund from iTunes. Extremely frustrating!!! However, the day I got a response from iTunes for a refund I opened the Elmo Calls one last time and it started downloading the complete package. Thank you for the fix and iTunes no longer needs to give me the refund.

- Bad app.

Before I bought the app I tried looking at the reviews and there were none so on a trusted whim I purchased the app. At first it was soooo slow to open then it'd crash. Then when it finally opened the happy music came on and it crashed. Ok so after a few crashes I get through the tutorial and had elmo call me just to have the app crash. I tried a few more times and every time it crashed when I picked up the call. I know the app was .99 but come on fix the app so it functions properly. I sent a complaint I'm sure I'm not the only one. Bad app not worth the purchase save your .99 for a truly worthy app.


My 3 year old has never been so excited to go potty, brush his teeth, clean up and go to bed. I have the schedule set to have elmo call 4 times while he's preparing for bed and he just ran around doing everything Elmo told him to do. He even tried to go brush his teeth without myself or my wife. Great idea, just needs a feature to schedule which day of the week as his schedule changes.

- "All Calls" in app purchase doesn't download

I have an iPhone 6 with iOS 8 and the app itself is fine and entertains my son. The problem is that the "All Calls" in app purchase that I paid $4.99 for doesn't download and the 'App Support' link doesn't offer a way to actually contact the developer to get some support. I've tried to delete the app and then use the 'Restore Purchases' link within the in app purchase section but has not helped at all. I really don't know what to do now to get this resolved.

- Terrrrrible app!

Originally this app was great entertained the kids long enough to do dishes or laundry, then it stopped working. Now every time you "call" Elmo it goes back to the home screen and never answers for the facetime ones. For the voice ones it answers yet you can hear nothing with or without your volume on. I've downloaded and redownloaded the app at least 5 times the first two times i did it it worked for a little while then stopped again. Don't spend the money. I even purchased the in app calls which i never spend the money on. Just a rip off!!

- Excellent but In App Purchases Malfunction

Got this for my toddler who loves it! Only problem is that I tried to purchase all calls within the app, was charged the $4.99 & did not receive what I purchased. I am hesitant to try it again, so I just keep what is free on the app. A real shame because I was looking forward to sharing the full capacity of this app with my child without having to spend a fortune on it.

- would be good if it worked

got this since it said it's compatible with iPod touch. we are able to hear voicemails from Elmo but it keeps existing the app when we try to answer the calls. please fix this. Update: found the magic trick to get it to work on iPod touch. FaceTime has to be set up previous to this app being installed. I did that, than uninstalled the Elmo Calls app. Turned off the iPod touch, restarted it and then reinstalled Elmo Calls. Seems to be working now.

- Elmo You Really Know How to Empty Pockets

My daughter loves Elmo, and went crazy when she got a call from Elmo! NOT happy about paying $1.99 fir the app then another $4.99 for ALL calls, but she loves it so I will fall into the Parent APP TRAP and take another one for the team. 5 stars for the smiles, laughter, and excitment this app brings everytime Elmo calls. Love the scheduled calls. Wish we could add more.

- Worth it for .99

My 2 year old boy loves it. I just got the .99 version so it's only 4 calls but that doesn't matter to him. It's good entertainment when I need something to keep him quiet for a few min. while out and about. Sometimes at home he gives me my phone and asks for Elmo. It's worth it if you ask me. He waves at Elmo and talks to him. He always says bye friend.

- Glitch

My 2 year old daughter LOVES this app so I went ahead and bought all the calls for 4.99 and it didn't download all of them. That's the only reason I gave it four stars instead of five. The only thing I can think to do is to delete the app and try repurchasing it. Maybe if I get it all like I should've the first time I'll go ahead and give it five stars. Other than that, great app for young kids.

- Cute, but wish it had a little more to it.

My kid adores Elmo (so do I) and she loves the app, it's cute. I like the Facetime aspect of it but as a parent who has to listen to it over and over again I wish it came with more clips to cycle through without having to pay extra for additional content. I'm glad I didn't pay more than .99 for it because I would have felt ripped off if I had.

- Good not perfect

Paid for all packs. Many calls are audio only when I expected video. It needs to have a "recents" tab so my son can replay his favorites ie peekaboo because it is a pain for me to keep finding them when he says "again!" Calls are not random enough either, playing the same calls again too often after my son hangs up. It would be nice for a parent to be able to preselect cateogories for when my son taps the screen Finally, please please get rid of that MUZAK song on the opening screen or allow us to customize it? I can't bear the tune any longer! Sometimes voice only calls sound muffled -could improve quality

- Not bad

Not too bad, but needs a couple of improvements. 1. Need to move the "Hang up" button. My daughter presses to answer phone and immediately presses it twice, then hangs up instantly. UI needs improvements. 2. Customize names. Have the ability to select a long list of popular names and have it more customizable. 3. If your going to pay for Kevin Clash, then get your money's worth and record a bunch of calls. It's a bit limited.

- A reason to hand your child your iPhone

My daughter love this app as much as she loves Elmo. I'm a bit greedy with my iPhone and basically don't want her to throw or break it. Using the new 'Guided Access' feature (Go to 'Settings' - 'General' - 'Accessibility' to enable) in iOS 6 and this app, my daughter never let's go of the phone. This app is a must for any parent.

- Great idea, but poor execution (freezing, no playlist)

Great idea, but flawed execution. it keeps freezing while "ringing," causing much toddler screaming. Also, though you can select favorites, it doesn't work well, or cycle through them as a playlist--you have to awkwardly navigate to the page through the difficult-to-use slide bar at the screen top, then select one, then go back to the main page--again, screaming toddler--then select another favorite...

- Fun stuff!

For $.99, you don't get much, but considering you can't get a candy bar for a buck these days, I'd say it's still worth it. After about 20 mins of playing the 4 videos and handful of calls that it came with, I broke down and bought the $4.99 add everything pack. The kid (1.5 years old) loves it.

- Toddler on Airplane approved

Great, creative app. Easy for a 2 year old to navigate. Not too annoying for parents, especially if you get all the phone calls. Reason I gave 4 stars is because it was pretty easy for my 2 year old to 'accidentally' purchase additional calls. But do yourself a favor and just buy the extra calls. They're worth it.

- Loves it!

My boy loves this app. The wife and I will FaceTime when I'm at work for a long day. My son loves to get on and say hi as well. His face lit up when he saw Elmo start talking to him just like on a video call. I had trouble getting the phone from him lol. Very cute app. Worth the extra down loads in my opinion. It is 6 dollars total at the time I this writing.

- Love this !!!!!!

My 9 month old daughter loves Elmo! It's an obsession! Lol this app is sooo cute that he can FaceTime with kids and educational too when you can set it up to call at certain times of the day to rind them to do things like bedtime, brushing their teeth, etc! I love this app, best 99 cents I've ever spent to see my daughter so happy to talk to Elmo :)

- Scheduled calls only happen when you are in the app

My son loves this app and I love how you can schedule calls from Elmo for a specific time. The downside is that you have to be in the app (and not for example on the home screen of your phone) for the scheduled calls to occur. It would be great if the "calls" from the app behaved like real calls (no need to be in the app for the call to happen). Thanks!

Did ‘Sesame Street’ Go Too Far With The Episode Where The Count Calls Elmo A “White Trash Bitch” To Teach Kids About Classism?
