Catch Phrase is a fast paced, nerve-wracking game that is one of the most contagious games around. It is a blend of clue deduction and a race against the clock played by two teams of two or more players with each team alternating turns.

To play,
you start the timer and then your team has to guess what word or phrase is visible on the screen before the timer runs out. If a team's guess matches the response on the game's readout, you pass the unit to the other team.

For example, if the word was "pumpkin," you could say something along the lines of, "Peter-Peter-blank-eater!". Your team members then try to guess that the word in place of "blank" is "pumpkin."

When the timer runs out a buzzer sounds (after about a minute). If your team is stuck holding the unit when the buzzer sounds then the other team will score a point.

TMX (Tickle Me Extreme) Elmo

The TMX Elmo was voted best toy at the American International Toy Fair 2007 and for good reason as this toy will make you laugh till you cry.

Elmo has three interactive tickle spots on his chin, tummy or toe. When you first tickle Elmo, he slaps his knee and sits on the floor, laughing hysterically! Then he rocks himself back up and asks for more. Tickle him again, and he falls to the ground, kicks his feet and scoots across the floor on his back! After standing back up, Elmo asks for another tickle and does it all over again, slapping his knee, sitting down, rolling on his back. He even rolls on his belly and slaps the floor!
