Valentine's Day Fun? There's an App for that!

Elmo’s Monster Maker App

The app lets iPhone and iPod touch users make their very own monster and send it to a friend!

Because there are thousands of combinations, it’s easy to change the monster’s appearance and once finished, Elmo will dance and play with the monster. Best of all, Elmo’s photos of the monster can go straight to a user’s iPhone or iPod touch photo album.

“What’s really unique about Elmo’s Monster Maker App is the interaction with the live video—Elmo is literally playing with a Muppet you’ve just created,” said Jeffrey Fleishman, Assistant Vice President for Media Distribution Business Development, Sesame Workshop.
Elmo’s Monster Maker App is available for $3.99 from the App Store for iPhone and iPod touch or at

Elmo’s Monster Maker is the second Sesame Street iPhone and iPod touch app produced with IDEO, an award-winning design and innovation consultancy. For a free tutorial featuring everyone’s favorite furry red monster, check out:
