Tucked in by ELMO

My kids will never – EVER – forget the night that Elmo came to our room, read them a story and tucked them into bed.  Colin, who is 4, was obviously super excited. He loves Sesame Street and he especially loves Elmo!! But even the older girls were beyond thrilled to have Elmo to themselves. When else do you get Elmo all to yourself??

We had a knock at our door and the kids – who rushed back to the room from the pool to wait for Elmo – were bouncing around in excitement. We opened the door and there he was!!! It was so so sweet! After huge hugs, the kids lead Elmo over to the bed where they were sleeping and he climbed right in.
(I love Gracie’s face in this picture – can you just see how delighted she is to have Elmo there?)

Each kid got a little Sesame Street stuffed animal to cuddle with during their tuck in!

Then we settled in to read a bedtime story together.

Oh, the sweet Elmo cuddles.

They all got good night kisses from Elmo and were tucked into bed.

These Sesame Character “Night Night” tuck in packages are totally worth the extra cost. It was one of the trip highlights for the kids and they have talked about it to everyone they know! It was so so sweet! Truly, we will never forget this night.

Other characters available for the Character Tuck in at Beaches Resorts include Abby Cadabby, Grover, Zoe, and Cookie Monster. After talking to everyone it sounds like Cookie super fun for a night time tuck in too. Character tuck-ins are $85 per child and $30 for each additional child. This also includes a free stuffed plush gift for each child. Now we love Elmo more than ever and will never forget this special time at Beaches Negril!!

Disclosure: We visited Beaches as part of a press trip, so a portion of our expenses were covered. Beaches Resorts provided a free Character Tuck In so we could experience their partnership with Sesame Street to facilitate this review. As always all thoughts and opinions are our own.

    What a great, unique idea! I think my parents would have had an easier time getting me to go to bed if my favorite character was doing it. The rest of the resort looks like fun too.
