GET READY TO SING, DANCE AND LEARN AS SESAME WORKSHOP
AND WARNER BROS. HOME ENTERTAINMENT RELEASE
ON DVD AND DIGITAL
Plus Full-Length Video of Play With Me: Imagine With Me!
Even though my girls are getting older --- I still can't believe Savannah will be 5 years old in July -- they still enjoy watching Sesame Street on television with me each and every day. And, Elmo is still their favorite character from the show, with Big Bird running a close second. :-) So, you can imagine how excited the girls were when they saw me taking the upcoming DVD release, Sesame Street: Elmo The Musical Volume 2, available this upcoming Tuesday in stores and for purchase through online retailers.
Bella was quick to point to the cover art and Elmo dressed up as a chicken. Then, she started talking about the episode, recalling it in full detail, as if she had just watched it. Savannah then chimed in about other fun Elmo songs they have enjoyed these past few years, and hoped were included on this DVD. Instead of waiting for the weekend to watch this DVD, the girls kept asking and I finally gave in and watched a portion of the upcoming Sesame Street: Elmo The Musical Volume 2 with them.
The new release, available on DVD and digital, is made up of over over two hours of song and dance with everyone's favorite Sesame Street friend, Elmo. No matter your age, old or young, you can't help but smile each and every time Elmo appears on the television screen or talks. He is just so cute and you want to snuggle up close to him. :-)
We ended up watching this DVD in its entirety over a 2-day period, with second viewing taking place a couple days later while traveling to visit the grandparents. I loved watching the girls sing along with Elmo to the different songs, while also learning about shapes and counting. And, if you are familiar with Sesame Street and Elmo in particular, then you know that he has a wonderful imagination. You will see this in the 2 hours of full-filled entertainment, as well as with your child after they are done watching it, as they will want to act out scenes, sing the songs that they learned from Elmo over and over again, etc.
My girls gave this DVD two thumbs up, and I know your kids will, too!. We are so excited to be adding Sesame Street: Elmo The Musical Volume 2 to our growing Sesame Street DVD collection, and will definitely be watching and singing along to this upcoming release time and again. You never get bored of Elmo or Sesame Street -- well, each my girls and I don't! :-)
