Kristin Thorne has more on a former volunteer firefighter from Long Island who just won big on ABC's "Shark Tanks" for her new fitness device.

The back of the box opens up like a book and features games and short stories about Elmo in both English and Spanish.

Each story follows Elmo and his friends as they play and learn on Sesame Street. The stories also prompt questions to help kids stretch their imaginations, engage in counting, recognize shapes and letters, and more.

The cereal is expected to appear on store shelves in January.
