Good, Although Not Great
on January 8, 2007
While this video is certainly not the best Sesame Street video I've ever seen, it's not bad and my 18 month old son enjoys it (and has for over two months now) and that's what's most important.
Granted, the songs on this video are not my favorites. Many of them are nursery rhymes, such as "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep," or "classics" such as "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," which don't really hold my interest. But my son enjoys them. In addition, the Count does a cute number called "These Old Bats" (instead of "This Old Man"), and the Oinker Sisters' rendition of "This Little Pig Goes to Market" is just wonderful.
My biggest complaint, and it's not much of one, is that the musical plot is really a numbers plot centering around counting backwards from ten to one. Obviously, my 18 month old isn't ready for that and it doesn't hold his interest at all. Had I realized this ahead of time, I might not have bought this particular video. But I consider this mainly my fault for not researching it properly (the reviews on Amazon, for example, make this plot very clear).
