Elmo, by Michelle Thompson
10” (10 1/2” unfinished)

It seems quite apropos that our very first Sesame Street block, designed by the ever talented Michelle Thompson, would be Elmo.

I'm old enough to remember when Elmo found his voice and became ELMO.  I remember the insanity that was Tickle Me Elmo's first Christmas season. My kids both grew up with Elmo and all the Sesame Street friends.

I hope you love Michelle's pattern as much as I do!
