I went to my Kohl's today hoping to find Elmo after seeing the review but no Elmo. I did ask if I could get a raincheck I was told could not get one because was not in sales ad:mad: I'm at the point where I'm not going to look anymore:no: .

You might check with your Wal_mart. Per Fisher Price they are getting shipments of them every week, but they are having problems with some of the stores holding them back for the employees. Make sure and talk to one of the mgrs. FP is looking into and I am supposed to be getting a call back about it. The reason I even called was because EVERY Wal-Mart in Missouri told me they weren't getting any in until AFTER Christmas. All of the Targets, TRU, KB said they get shipments every week. Something funny going on.

Has anyone received theirs from Amazon yet? I heard they were starting to ship out now. But I know how rumors get started . . . one person gets it, doesn't mean we ALL get it! :cheesy:

Stopped in at my local Kohl's the other day. Nothing. Went to the Kohl's a couple cities away, walked into the Toy department and there were 4 elmo's just sitting there. I was shocked. 40% off. :)

I went into our local target today, and there were 3 on the shelf that must have came in on last nights truck. I got them all, but gave one to a guy at the register, and than sold another one to a family friend. Keep looking, I have been looking all week and just happened to be there at the right time, shortly after they opened.

Haven't heard anything back yet, but they told me it might be the end of this week before I did. I know that our Target, KB Toys, TRU, etc. are getting shipments everyday. I just live 30-45 miles from everything and work locally in my hometown, so I don't get in to the city that much.
I will let you know if I find out anything

I've been looking at Target and everybody I have talked to said they don't expect any shipments in until closer to the holiday season.

As for Amazon, you might want to check that you still have an order with them. My father and stepmom ordered two of these T.M.X. Elmo's they day they were released through Amazon. They then receives notice three weeks later that they won't be honoring their order (they have an order number and everything) and now when you try and track the order, it claims no such order. Pretty crappy way to do business. Needless to say they aren't going to be buying anything from Amazon anytime soon and this is from a couple who routinely spend three-four hundred bucks a month on books. Doesn't really bother me much nor will it bother my girls as they far more into anything Cinderella or Disney Princess, but I love teasing my dad about it as he isn't much of a shopper and he was so ahead of things or so he thought. I am keeping my fingers crossed I will come accross one just so I can give it to dad, but not sweating it much.

We have only one Toys R Us and they won't tell you when the Elmo's are coming in or if they have them. You basically have to go to the store everyday and wait in the line to get in and look for yourself. Wal-mart is a joke, but at least they'll give you some info. This is alot of work for 1 toy.

Found Elmo TMX for $39.99 at www.**********.com But the site says certificate is invalid. I'm leary about ordering one. Anyone ever deal with this company?

FYI, this site appears to be a scam. The URL is now blocked, but the site name is one hot item dot com. I'd advise everyone to stay away and definitely not give them your personal/credit card info.

I'm in New Jersey and I spoke with Toys R Us today, they told me that they have been getting them in but they do not know they are on the truck until the trucks gets to the store and they see it on the manifest. When I went to Kaybee they were still taking names for a waiting list. One of the empliyees was on the phone with a customer and they are telling customers that there are so many people waiting that the next 4-5 shipments are already spoken for. Good Luck !

I finally got one of the TMX elmos and the way to go about it is, say they advertise them in a Wal Mart add 29.95 and the sale starts Oct 15th, you better be there 2 to 3 hours prior. I went to our local wal mart one evening around 9 pm and at 12 am they came out on the floor. I also heard that toys r us big book comes out in November and they have to have so many in stock so check that out. hope this is a little help

I was looking at the ads from today and Elmo isn't even there ! I haven't seen Elmo advertised for the last 2 sundays. I seem to recall that last year there was a hot toy that the stores also stopped advertising but I can't remember what it was.
