TMX Elmo spotted in Bel Air today


Still looking for TMX Elmo? My husband spied at least four of the Tickle Me X-treme dolls at the Bel Air Toys R Us this morning (9:30 a.m. Wednesday Nov. 22). Word of caution for all of you thinking about turning a profit on eBay: a quick check of the site shows me the dolls are going for between $56 and $78 — not as big of a profit margin on the $40 toys as I saw earlier in the season. The question is whether the supply will stay limited through the holiday shopping season and, as I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m not seeing the kind of full-on Nickelodeon channel advertising for these toys that creates that kind of I-gotta-have-it-buzz among the kids. Call me shortsighted, but I left them there on the shelves for the rest of you. Have at ’em.
