Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the HOT toy for Christmas 2008. ELMO Live is freakishly realistic and somewhat mesmerizing. If this comes in under $50, I expect it to mirror the original Tickle Me Elmo craze from years ago.

Every day a new player enters the field of online video. New codecs, new players and new exclusives appear every day. Yesterday I discovered a new player in the field and it’s a fun one.
Videos.SesameWorkshop.com offers hundreds of the best clips from years and years worth of Sesame Street. The interface is simple. Images of popular Sesame Street characters pre-populate the search field with their names. Perfect for little ones learning to navigate on the computer. Likewise, there’s little else on the screen to distract and each video is tagged with topics.
Clicking Cookie Monster’s image returns 110 video clips, with the first being a muppet-filled sing-a-long of “C is for Cookie” that is just awesome. The embedded player leaves me wanting more. The video quality is pretty bad and I wish you could embed the video to a site.
Still, it’s a step in the right direction and I’ll be interested to see where this leads.
