Elmo vs Mickey – Holiday Toy Smackdown 2011

The stage is set for an epic battle.  Two toys, similar in theme.  Both household names.  Both loved by preschoolers far and wide.  But when it comes to hot holiday toys, surely one must step up and claim the title.

Mattel Let's Rock ElmoIn one corner we have the pride of Sesame Street, none other than Elmo.  Elmo is no stranger to the hot holiday toy lists.  Ever since the phenomenon of Tickle Me Elmo it seems he’s been around in one form or another, vying for that coveted place under the tree.  This year he’s hitting the music scene as Let’s Rock Elmo, complete with microphone, tambourine and drums.  His t-shirt channels AC/DC.

Fisher Price Rock Star Mickey

In the other corner we find the most recognizable face in cartoons, Mickey Mouse himself.  Mickey scored big with his Dance Star moves last year.  This year it’s all rock n’ roll.  Meet Rock Star Mickey.  Decked out in sunglasses and a Mickeyesque skull and crossbones striped tee, he’s wielding a guitar and ready to show off his moves.

Rock Star Mickey is currently selling at Amazon for $45.98 while Let’s Rock Elmo is setting the bar higher at $58.88.

Which rocker will reign supreme on the list of Hot Holiday Toys for 2011?
