Elmo Wants to Give Your Toddler's Tootsies a Hug

I’m not normally one for branded clothing or licensed characters, but when Elmo shows up on some toddler shoes, arms outstretched in a hug? I make an exception. In fact, I loved my son’s Elmo shoes so much that when he outgrew them, I went with another Sesame Street friend: Ernie. Gah, adorable!

Check out the full line of Sesame Street shoes from Stride Rite below. Which is your favorite?
