    **Updated review** Thank you for notifying me of the fix. My toddler loves loves loves this app. With the all calls packet there is enough variety to keep it fresh and interesting. Upgraded to the all calls packet, took my money but didn't get any of the calls. No response to repeated attempts to contact Full Review

    I purchased the all calls pack so I could organize them into favorites and schedule calls. Every time I go into the parent section to do so, the app crashes. I've complained and asked for a refund and have not received. Do not waste your money or time. Poor customer service and very little usability. Full Review

    I loved this app until the latest update. Now Elmo literally only does 3 calls. I'm so tired of playing a cowboy, being told how he's my friend and singing The Farmer and the Dell. No more calls about letters either. For spending over $7 for the full version, I'm getting ripped off. Full Review

    I paid for extra packs and they can't be pulled back on my new phone. Error code 6. Once my messages finally are answered or I am refunded I will change back to five stars. As is these developers are thieves. Full Review

    It's a nice game if it worked properly. I downloaded all the calls and while it seems all the calls are there when you call Elmo, you can't access the parents part to make call schedules or listen to individual calls. It crashes as soon as you input the number it asks you to type. Would be awesome and my daughters love it if it worked like it should. I'm a bit disappointed I spent money on something that half works. Full Review

    I downloaded the app, then bought all the call packs. Which I can never get to them. Makes me angry that I spent the money and it never works. The app always closes or has to restart. My son loves it and I would totally love it more if I could get what I purchased. Full Review

    While my girls have both enjoyed talking to Elmo, the buttons are hard for them to hit. Also, it would be great if this was available through the family share option. Purchasing all the calls more than once he is annoying. Full Review

    Seriously! I finally paid for all the calls because my toddler was so into it and now anytime I go into the parental controls the app completely crashes, which SUCKS because we were using it for potty training but now I have no access to any of the stuff I just paid $8 for! Fix it please! I also wanted to add that supposedly there is supposed to be a 'favorites' button that pops up for kids to use but unfortunatly that hasn't worked either! If you get to all of the above add a nap call as well because yeesh we all need a little help with nap time. I'll gladly change this review once the adequate improvements are made. Full Review

    Unusable parental controlls. If you have purchased the full pack you need to use the parental contolls to access the content. The app has been crashing for days and no resolve as of yet. Shameful sesame street needs to find better developers Full Review

    I love the app and so does my child but, now that i have bought all the calls, the scheduled calls do not work properly. Also, I'd like to suggest a "nap time" call. I realize the cookie monster app has this but, my child likes Elmo allot more & isn't very interested in cookie monster. Full Review

    My 1 year-old son ADORES this app, so naturally, I do too. However, there are two frustrating issues I have with it: #1) Since purchasing the All Calls Pack, I can no longer open the Grown-Ups/Settings menu, the app just force closes. I've submitted reports, cleared the cache, uninstalled & reinstalled, etc. to no avail. # 2) The End Call button is in the exact same place as the Answer button, so my son ends up hanging up the call while still trying to answering it. Some of it is due to his button-mashing, but considering it is an app for kids, I wonder why there's a End Call button at all. When I tried to go to the Grown-Ups menu to see if I could disable it, well... see issue #1. All in all, it's a brilliant idea. The execution isn't perfect, but it's merely a tweak or two away from getting there. Full Review

    My little sister was ACTUALLY giggling when she finished this, she is a big fan of elmo and she says that when she watches sesame street, she always feels good. I could edit this but she REALLY did love it. If this app did not exist then Evie would be so sad 😊 Full Review
