The Fisher-Price Elmo phone was a pretty good little toy. I ended up being a lot bigger than I thought it would be, but still fit well into my child's hand. It is bright and kids seem to like the eyes on the top of the phone. It wasn't a bad toy phone. I just have liked other toy phones out there better. This one did have sounds, music, voices and all that. If your child loves sesame street or elmo they may love this. I found it to be a little annoying after awhile. I don't know if it was the sound of elmo's voice or the sounds on the phone, but I wasn't a fan. This phone is pretty sturdy and holds up pretty well. You will find some marks on it after awhile. I guess I can't give it a really bad rating because it really wasn't a bad little toy. I just found it annoying for my taste and have liked the way other toy phones out there work and sound more than this one. I'm sure there are some kids that would think that this toy was great!
