Sesame Street has partnered with thermometer company Kinsa to produce a Sesame Street Smart Ear Thermometer. The thermometer and its correlating app are designed to look like Elmo, the beloved red Muppet on the children's show. The Elmo-inspired app includes Elmo's voice to encourage kids while having their temperatures taken with phrases like "good job."
The smart thermometer can connect to a parent's smartphone through Bluetooth and can track temperatures that are taken. The thermometer has a comfortable ear probe to make it easier for parents to take a child's temperature even if they're sleeping. The Sesame Street Smart Ear Thermometer is capable of reading a child's temperature in one second and can record up to 50 readings. The Elmo thermometer will enable parents to keep better track of their child's temperatures while sick or recovering, while making the process more comforting for children.
