Sesame Street: Fairytale Fun is a delightful combination of classic fairytales, nursery rhymes and everyone’s favorite Sesame Street monsters,” said Jeff Brown, WBHE Executive Vice President and GM of Non-Theatrical Franchise Marketing. “Warner Bros. Home Entertainment can’t wait to share this new addition to our already vastly popular Sesame Street collection of DVDs.”

Now in its 44th season, Sesame Street is the longest-running program in children’s television. The series has received more Emmy awards than any other show in television history (153), as well as a Lifetime Achievement Emmy Award honoring the 40th year."


My Thoughts:

If fairytales weren't enjoyable enough, leave it to the cast of characters from Sesame Street, to bring these classic stories to life in such a fun way.  The girls and I watched this upcoming DVD release today, and what a treat it was.  I have been sharing fairytale stories like Hansel and Gretel and Jack B Nimble since they were babies, so it was nice to see Elmo, Oscar, Big Bird and others act out the stories, while teaching children about counting, rhyming and task persistence. 

It amazes how quickly Arabella is learning things, especially when she tries to copy Savannah.  She was walking at 9 months and talking at 10 months.  And, now she can count just as high as Savannah.  So, DVD's like these that focus on learning and developmental skills, are great for both of them to enjoy and watch together.  And, you should see Bella's face light up when she is able to count and follow along and respond back to her Sesame Street fiends.

With over 2 hours of fairytale fun, including a cute CinderElmo bonus feature, this is yet another DVD to pick up and add to your growing Sesame Street DVD collection, and one that will be watched over and over again by the little ones. :-)
