To contrast the other less-than-favorable reviews, I had to add my "thumbs up" rating for this superbly educational tape from the Sesame Street folk. Long being an admirer of the cute Muppet known as "Elmo", I couldn't wait to watch this one with my four-year-old niece and her two-year-old brother. Both kids are totally captivated by Elmo's informative and entertaining "lessons" on animals in the wild.
Elmo is definitely a kid favorite.
The creators of this lovable character realize that his wide-eyed enthusiasm and infectious laugh are the perfect blend to tap into the innocence and curiosity of children. The late Michael Jeter is also on hand as the childlike "Mr. Noodles" who also knows a thing or two about engaging little minds.
All children are different and while a few may be "frightened" by the big bad wolf, I can assure you that my two young relatives found nothing terrifying at all in this wonderful tape.

My son loves Elmo and has every Elmo's world made. I bought this one as soon as I saw it. My son loves animals and I thought this would be his favorite Elmo video. Unfortunately, the scene with the big bad wolf can be frightening, as the other review says. My son cried (at 15 months) when the big bad wolf came on too. I tried a couple of times and he cried each time. I had to put this video away and will probably try it again in 6 months or so.

My 16 month old LOVES Elmo and Sesame Street so I was very surprised at his reaction to this DVD. When the Big Bad Wolf blew away Prairie Dawn and the camera, he started screaming and crying and climbing all over me (like the wolf was "getting him"). I try to remember to fast-forward past this part but sometimes forget. He knows the scene is coming several scenes before and climbs in my lap for protection. This comes from a child who has NEVER been frightened by anything on TV.

Also, my 2 1/2 year old neice was afraid of the very scary tornado in the weather segment. This DVD may be appropriate for older childrn, but definitely not for toddlers.

My soon to be 1yr old LOVES Elmo and we bought this b/c he loves animals as well - which this DVD does cover very well. BUT in the "Wild Animals" section, there is an appearance of the Big Bad Wolf that totally scared the crap out of my son! Even watching the part leading up to it freaks him out. So we have to completely skip the "Wild Animals" section, which is a bit of a waste of "movie time". He's normally pretty brave, but just a head's up in case your kid's at that "unfamiliar things are scary stage".

My kids really love Elmo and his DVD's, but this one is a little scarey. Some of the animals, and even some of the stormy weather scenes are a little intense for sensitive viewers. There are definitely better Elmo DVD"s out there.

OK, i read some of the other reviews and just shook my head at some peoples reaction to this DD even i ahd my dad read this and he agreed, I have a 1 year old ad 3 year olkd sister, I'll come in the room and watch it with them sometimes, when Prarie Dawn gets blown away all the 1-year old does is say bye bye and if our little neighbor mario is over he will giggle and join in and before you knoiw it 3 toddlers watching this part having a GRAND old time watching that part when older kids are screaming in panic, try to expose your children to their fear little by little, thats how my parents got me to get over my fear of escaltors when I was 7, just expose it to them little by little and tell them the wolf isn;t going to get them, hey there are worse things my friend went face to face with a wolf when he was 8! a real one too when he was fishinbg with his sister, luckily the wolf was just after the fish strangly. Back to the DVD, the other part parents claim is scary with the tornado the 3-year old says COOL! Hey they havce to learn about torbadoes in 3rd grade, the last thing you want is your kid screming and crying because they see a tornado adn start calling the kid cry baby. Try to expose the kids to this slowly, this is not the headless horseman we're dealing with, its just foam puppets that are trying to educate our children about the world. Nobody can hide their little babies inside when they r 40 years old to hide them of the dangers of the world, they need to expierence the world, if you know what I mean learn about it, learn about strangers, weather, etc anything about the world so they are prepared when they go out on their own in this cruel world when they grow up. So parents, try to get them to watch this little by little and not ban them from this tape because they teach them about the WORLD. I know this is coming from a 13 year old but at least try to expose them to this video alittle bit.

My 18 months old son just loves Elmo's World. But this one is defintely his all-time favorite. It is just as good as Elmo's

Family, Mail and Bathtime.I highly recommend it.

Our 18 month old loves this DVD. He is not scared at the section with the big bad wolf at all - maybe because he is too young for the Little Red Riding Hood stories. We have several Elmo DVD's and this one is much easier on our ears than some of the others. I have to admit that the "wiggle" song is actually quite catchy - don't be surprised if you catch yourself singing it!

We love Elmo's World. And the Great Outdoors is our favorite. It is more recent than some of the other Elmo's Worlds, which helps watching as an adult. And the best episode is wild animals with the Marsupial "Waddle, Hop, Snore" song. Sadly enough, we lost our DVD, so I am planning on buying another.
