Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
It's time to learn to read, Sesame Street style! Bert, Ernie, and friends are putting on a new play and some of your favorite words are the stars! But when their world-famous closing act cancels at the last minute, everyone joins the mad scramble to find a new "grand finale." What starts as a tribute to the power of words ends with a whirlwind of tap dancing penguins, belly-dancing chickens, flying banana peels and pies in the face! It could only happen on Sesame Street!]]>

She prefers this video to many other ones because there are several good musical numbers, and there is only a limited amount of between-song talking. I even memorized several of the songs to sing to her in the car when we ride around town, and that used to stop her from crying when she was 6-12 months old (actually, it still works pretty well in the car sometimes).
Now that she's 21 months old, she jumps up and down and dances around when the songs come on, and she applauds at the end of each song. I'm amazed that this video has kept her attention for 19 months. Also, she really loves the "preview other sesame street DVDs" section. It shows you 30-second snippets of 15-20 other DVDs, focusing on the catchy songs. I choose the "play all previews" selection to give her a 10-minute block of previews. That gives us about 55 minutes of total entertainment - twice the length of many other toddler DVDs.
I almost forgot the most redeeming quality of this DVD - it teaches words. My daughter can now say the words "go", "sticky", and "elmo". She even tries to sing along with the syllables that she knows.
I can't recommend this DVD enough! It's a great baby and toddler DVD!
***Update 5/6/2010: It's been about 6 years since my review, and now, my 2-year-old son also loves this video. We play it in the car, and my 5 and 7-year-old daughters still like watching it. My 7-year-old is kind of old for it, but it still holds her interest and she doesn't complain when we put it on for our son. It even has the nostalgic side benefit of bringing me back to 2004 when my 7-year-old was a toddler and she used to watch this DVD almost every day. I still enthusiastically recommend this DVD!
