Very young children instinctively use their senses to explore the world around them and find sensory games fascinating. In Exploring Together, Matt Lauer and his daughter Romy read a story about the five senses and begin to explore which body parts are used to see, hear, touch, taste, and smell. As they read, the Muppet babies are discovering their own senses while playing, singing, and going about their daily lives. When Elmo smells the banana pancakes his Dad is cooking in the kitchen, Elmo's Dad sings a "Smell a Smell Waltz" and makes a game of exploring the different smells around the house. Prairie Dawn and her Mom use their sense of hearing to play hide and seek and go on a treasure hunt around the house to see "what's making that noise" while Baby Bird and Nani Bird search for a lost toy and play games involving sight. Baby Cookie Monster pleads for a "Teeny Tiny Taste" of his Grandma's fruit salad and explores his sense of taste as only Cookie Monster can. Interspersed between Muppet segments is footage of real life children and their caregivers using their senses to explore a wide variety of everyday objects like plants, sand, and food. The bonus "Here's an Idea" segments offer parents a selection of sensory games to play with their children, parenting tips, and commentary about what concepts the Muppet babies are learning in specific scenes of the show. (Ages 6 months to 3 years) --Tami Horiuchi

Format: DVD
We purchased the first two in the Sesame Beginnings DVDs for our daughter and loved them. They have been viewed a hundred times easily. This one, however, was a big disappointment. As others have stated, the sound quality is very poor. During the human segments, you can hear the background noise from the street outside, and it is almost louder than the people in the DVD. I can't believe that this made it past the final editing/screening process. The charm of the Sesame Street characters is still there, but is really lessened by the lackluster music. The other DVDs in the series have fun, catchy music that my husband and I began singing to her after hearing only once or twice. The songs in this one are unremarkable and boring. All of them. It didn't help that the music volume is inconsistently lowered during songs, thus rendering them almost awkwardly a capella. I didn't have any problem with Matt Lauer's interaction with his daughter, though, yes, as another reviewer stated, he does question her a lot. She was a cute little girl, and all parent/child relationships are different. Clearly she knows her daddy, and he obviously loves her. The overabundance of questioning isn't limited to Matt Lauer. It appears to be the goal of this DVD as all the parents annoyingly over-question the children. Obviously, the writers/director were going for this. They beefed up the parent/child interaction segments in this one, and it was overdone. Previously, they were fun and incorporated into the music. In this one, they simply interrupt the flow. Yes, our daughter will watch this one some, but there is an obvious difference in her enjoyment of it. She smiles and squeals at the others and gets bored watching this. The fact that the adults seem to dislike this one is also important.Read more ›

I purchased this DVD for my daughter at Christmas. We already had the "Making Music Together" DVD, which she absolutely loves, so we thought that we would add to the Sesame Street Beginnings collection with this DVD and the "Beginning Together" DVD. The music is generally very good with lots of interaction with the characters and their parent/caregiver. However, the dialogue with Matt Lauer and his daughter is noisy (really bad recording quality maybe, especially compared to the other DVD's) and a little forced in some areas. But my daughter doesn't notice those things! She loves the Smell a Smell song and it is the first time that she has laughed at something she saw on the TV - and we are talking full on belly laughs. So this is a good video to add to your collection if you (as an adult) can get over the Matt Lauer part.

My 14-month-old son and my 2-year-old niece enjoyed watching the first two (Beginning Together and Make Music Together), so I thought that purchasing the third one would be a good investment. This third one seems to be filmed differently (I can hear lots of background noise when the parents and Matt/Romy are being taped) and Prairie Dawn's mom and Elmo's dad are different. My niece was confused and didn't know who those two characters were. Her comment was, "That doesn't look like Prairie Dawn's mom!" I think that the Muppet interaction and the music are great, but my niece and son have attempted to watch this video at least 6 times, and every time, they loose interest about 5 minutes into it. I really wish that Sesame Street would have kept the third movie the same as the first two!

I'm surprised at the negative reviews since we and our 1 year old daughter LOVED It! She's hard to please when it comes to videos, and usually is attracted by music and real kids, not animation. This was perfect since she also enjoys the puppets. I thought the interaction w/ Matt and his daughter was natural and the background noise, though noticeable, was not annoying to me. This was our first video experience of the series, so not a lot to compare it to. But we did watch the Music Making one today and my daughter was not as intrigued - because there is less parent/child interaction in that one. Catchy theme song too - "wiggle" song.
I also recommend "Baby Genius: Favorite Children's Songs" DVD for babies.

As other reviewers note... this one just doesn't meet the standards of the two previous DVDs in the series. I'm not at all bothered, and neither is my child, by Elmo's Dad shaving off his mustache OR Prairie Dawn's Mom getting a more contemporary hairstyle... their voices and mannerisms are the same. It's just like in the real world... peoples looks vary over time. But, I was bothered by the poor sound quality of the "live" recordings between Matt and Romy. Also, their interaction wasn't as cheerful as prior parent/child segments. Matt really seems to be quizzing Romy the whole time. Not too much fun to watch. And, the songs are not as "catchy". Overall, disappointing.

Format: DVD
Our 13 month old daughter is a sesame street fanatic since she was 9 months old! We owned the first two "sesame beginnings" DVDS and she just loves them both. She dances and claps her hands to the music, and her smile just lites up the room. I was so excited when I had seen the new Sesame Beginning DVD, "Exploring Together", so, naturally I ordered it. VERY, VERY, DISAPPOINTING!!! The music was disappointing and boring. My daughter's attention span was limited for this particular video. I hope the next video will be better!
