The age range is 18 months to four years old. It should be fine for a five year old.

yes - more for 18 months - 2 years old
The way the toy is built, I would say that 5 may be too young. My 2 1/2 yr old gave it lock jaw immediately and it was just a little bear hug.
Yes 5 is too old for this toy ... unless of course you want your kid to stay a baby... then 5 is not too old...5 year olds should have a Nook from Walmart to help them read and develop ... I have a 2 yr. old grandson that is very advanced because of the Nook ...I know you didnt ask that ... just thought i would offer incite
5 would be a little too old

My 10 year old daughter loves him!!
My grand daughter is 4 years old and loves this toy very much.
The age range say 18 month to 4 year old. My 5 year old boy said he wanted this toy for his Birthday. He still like Elmo but he like lego Iron Man and Minions more than this toy. One pros is that at age 5, he knows how to be a bit more gentle with toy so we don't have to worry too much of Elmo being broken. Our daughter 9 and other son 7 likes Elmo more than our 5 year old but our 2 year old is not interested in this toy. It really depend on a child (if he like Elmo or not) no matter the age.
I think its fine if the child likes elmo...or hugs:)
