I wrote this review while participating in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Playskool. I received product samples to facilitate my party and review, and a promotional item to thank me for participating. Play dates are a great way for kids and moms to get together for a fun-filled afternoon. The boys love having friends over and I enjoy the chance to catch up with friends. Recently Playskool sent along some of their 2014 collection for the kids to test out. Elmo was always a favorite character for both of my boys. When J was a toddler he only wanted to see Elmo on the TV. Any other part of Sesame Street was ignored until that adorable red monster came on the screen.
