Missing Elmos Arrive Safely at their Destination

ELMO HAS ENTERED THE BUILDING!! 
Trey Ewart, 4, of Fayetteville, takes his T.M.X.(tm) Elmo to his dad’s shopping cart from a display in the front of the Wal-Mart Super Center in Bentonville, Ark.

The shipment of 100 T.M.X. Elmo dolls that went missing on Oct. 31 safely made it to its destination late last night. With 62 days until Christmas, Wal-Mart Associates are in stitches as they work to stock shelves weekly. Shoppers should check often to find the hysterically laughing, belly-clutching, floor-thumping T.M.X.(tm) Elmo dolls in time for Christmas. Elmo laughs for a total of almost 90 seconds and as the world’s largest retailer, Wal-Mart has sold enough T.M.X. Elmo dolls to keep them giggling from now until next Christmas.
