Product Description

Elmo's World: Happy Holidays! (DVD)

From the Back Cover

In the first-ever "Elmo's World" holiday special, Elmo is gearing up to celebrate Christmas. But what present will he give Dorothy, his beloved goldfish? As he searches for an answer, Elmo learns about holidays around the world and discovers the many things that Christmas, Chanukah and Kwanzaa have in common. Finally, Elmo goes to the North Pole, where Santa has some expert advice about the true spirit of Chirstmas - and the perfect gift for Dorothy!

This DVD is great, and my 19 mo. old has been watching it nonstop since we first let him watch it on Thanksgiving day. The Kwanzaa dance in itself is worth the price of admission, with the Noodle family skit close behind!
This DVD manages to introduce the basic essence of three year-end holidays (Christmas, Hannukah and Kwaanza) without invoking any one religion or even mentioning God. (Except for a brief mention by one of the ... kids near the end.) Focus is on, family (and food ;-)). It even pauses to mention other holidays like Ramadan and Three Kings day that are also commonly observed but not the focus of this video.

This is a wonderful video, sure to be a Christmas classic! It teaches all about Christmas, Chanuka and Kwanzaa in a fun and humorous way. What I really like about it is that it doesn't shy away from showing the real meanings behind the holidays: it shows both the secular and historical/religious origins of the holidays without preaching or offending. (I haven't found any other Christmas specials that do this!) Not only does my daughter enjoy this video, but I do as well (even after MANY repeat viewings). She's a big Elmo fan, but even if she wasn't, there's alot to enjoy about this video. A++

I purchased this DVD last week for my 4 year old daughter. She loves it, has watched it at least once everyday since I purchased it. It mostly covers the Christmas holiday but also covers Hannukkah and Kwanza. I think it's a great DVD to teach children about all of the holidays besides the one they normally celebrate. Nicely done in an "extended" Elmo's World format.

This video does a tasteful and entertaining job of exploring the different holidays that people celebrate at this time of year. The origins and typical customs of Christmas, Chanukah, and Kwanzaa are covered, and several children even explain how Ramadan and Three Kings Day are celebrated in their homes. We have several Elmo tapes, but this is one of our favorites. Really fun and solidly produced.

This is a great DVD, covering many types of holidays (Christian, Jewish, and others); I like that it's inclusive. I have purchased most of the "Elmo's World" and Sesame Street DVDs for my toddler, who is three years if age. Good, safe entertainment for toddlers is hard to find.

Format: DVD
"Greetings of "Happy Holidays!" can be heard at all times of year throughout the world. Every holiday is a unique cultural tradition with specific origins, meanings, and ritual observances. The holidays that your family celebrates may be different from those of your neighbors and friends, or you may even observe the same holiday differently. To help celebrate some of the diverse cultural traditions that bring joy to the world, Sesame Workshop created the video Elmo's World: Happy Holidays." - From Sesame Street Workshop

My son has both Elmo Saves Christmas and Elmo's World: Happy Holidays! and the latter DVD is MUCH better. (Harvey Fierstein's role as the Easter Bunny in Elmo Saves Christmas is enough to ruin THAT one for me, let alone everything else...)

This culture-friendly DVD shows kids (and muppets!) celebrating Christmas, Kwanzaa, Chanukah, Ramadan, and even mentions Three Kings Day. I like the fact that this DVD doesn't shy away from the nativity scene and the special birth of a "great teacher to many" like in other overly-PC DVDs. (For example, Blue's Clues Big Holiday has Wynona Judd merely saying "Christmas is a time we celebrate a very special birth"--as if the "J" word was as bad as the "F" word!)

Yet, it also shows other holiday traditions in a respectful, educational way. A child speaking about celebrating Ramadan says "Ramadan makes me feel happy, to respect my God and my elders". The Chanukah segment is a cartoon describing the miracle of the Lights--and Baby Bear and family spin the dreidel.

And Elmo doing a Kwanzaa dance? Crazy, bongo-hitting fun!

Kelly Ripa also makes appearances as the friendly mail carrier; she suits the role well.

I rented this video for my kids (2 & 3) last Sunday. They watched it over & over & over. It has been playing in the background every one of their waking hours. I had to return it to the video store on Tues. AM and had to go rushing out to buy it after work on Tuesday beacause I just knew that they would ask for it again on Tuesday night. I was right. It is (as all Sesame Street products) a very educational & high quality product. I would definitely recommend it for young children. It shows different holidays celebrated at this time of year and exposes children to many different cultures.

The Happy Holidays DVD is something my autistic daughter Nakeema has been requesting since she broke her original one a while back. She plays it til we stop her. She finds great joy in some of the most simple things. This DVD is definately one of them. She is now 16 yrs. Since she doesnt ask for much,when she asked for Elmo's/Happy Holiday video....we had to look it up and purchase it. She absolutely loves it.....
