Word on the (Sesame) street is our favorite little monster is turning 3-and-a-half today. If you have a toddler, you’re probably familiar with this lovably unavoidable little guy. Arguably Sesame Street’s most popular character, Elmo’s wide-eyed, grinning face is literally everywhere. Toothbrushes. Bubble bath packaging. Shoes.

In honor of this huggable little monster’s birthday, here are six things you may now know about Elmo, along with a few products that are so cute, they’ll have you speaking in the third person.
