When the school bell rings for the first time this year, there will be a new student in town, thanks to Headstarts’ new plush toy, ‘Ready for School Elmo’!

This adorable new plush helps get kids ready for school by teaching them the basics of the alphabet, counting and getting dressed. Press Elmo’s right foot to hear him speak the ABC’s, and press his left foot and Elmo will count to ten! Kids can also zip Elmo’s jacket and tie Elmo’s shoes, helping to develop their fine motor skills.

“Ready for School Elmo is a huggable, lovable, educational plush toy that both kids and mums will love. Not only does he help kids develop skills like imagination and cognitive learning, but he’ll get them singing along to learn their ABCs and 123s,” says Andrew Hendy, Director, Headstart International.

“Starting school is a nervous time for many children, so to have a friend like Elmo to help them prepare for this big day will turn those fears into excitement!” Andrew adds.

The Ready for School Elmo is available now from Big W and other independent retailers for RRP $39.00.

Other Sesame Street products available as part of the Headstart range include Super Grover, a fun Grover plush that speaks phrases like ‘Have no fear because Super Grover is here!’, and Bedtime Abby, who says ‘Ahhhh, it’s bedtime’ when her tummy is squeezed. Both of these new products are available this month for RRP $29.00. Elmo Loves You, and Me Loves Cookies complete the range, and feature beloved characters Elmo and Cookie Monster respectively. The Elmo plush says phrases like ‘Elmo loves hugs!’, while Cookie Monster says ‘Oh! C is for Cookies!’.
