This CD is timeless. If you have young children, or just want to relive your own childhood days, I highly recommend it.
But beware, your kids may not want to listen to anything other than this disc. Whenever I attempt to put a new CD into the CD player, my two year old child picks this CD off the rack and asks me to play it - "This CD, Daddy? - How 'bout this one?" I usually accommodate him. This CD brings back wonderful childhood memories for me, and is much more tolerable than Barney and Friends.
Even though he very rarely watches the Television Program or videos, our son knows and sings along to almost all of the songs - and so do my wife and I. This CD is truly something the whole family can enjoy. It also has educational benefits, having helped my child continue to develop his vocabulary. I love hearing my son say - "What an absolutely marvelous wonderful word" from the beginning of the ABC song. As soon as the first note of the Theme song begins, his face lights up, no matter what he was doing. The song literally brings a smile to his face and chases the frowns away. That in turn brings a smile to my face. He giggles and laughs as he sings along to "Who Are the People In Your Neighborhood". I even discovered him having a conversation with Ernie (in the speakers) when the "Rubber Duckie" song came on. And while I'm not a big fan of Elmo's voice, my two year old loves singing Elmo's Song. There is something special about seeing your child enjoy the music you enjoyed as a child.
We make our own homemade compilation CDs for car trips, which allows us to take our favorite children's songs and mix them up with some classical music. One or two children's songs followed by one or two classical pieces makes for a nice mix, and makes car trips less stressful for the family.

My two year old daughter loves this CD, and so do I. It holds her attention just as well as TV does, and what a great alternative! Some of the songs (Sesame Street Theme, Big Bird's Alphabet Song, Rubber Duckie) sound like the same recordings that I remember from 25+ years ago when I was growing up with Sesame Street. Others (Put Down the Duckie, Elmo's Song) are more recent. All are great!

I have an eighteen-month-old daughter who demands this CD as soon as we get into the car. The songs are upbeat, original, and keep my daughter dancing. More importantly she is so entertained that she actually stays in her carseat and enjoys the ride. You will find yourself singing along, but the songs stay fresh even after your child listens to them over and over and over. . . I highly recommend this CD, it is a classic and the best of Sesame Street!

I am 13 years old and yet I am not afraid to admit that this is my favorite CD. My 2 year old cousin was listening to it when I went to visit her and when I heard it I remembered listening to it when I was her age. I was sad because I was reminded of the innocence I once had while listening to that CD, but then realized I could still enjoy it without shame because Sesame Street rules and I don't care if people find it unacceptable for a teenager to like Sesame Street. Anyway, this CD is the best because it has all my favorite songs from my childhood on it. Also, each song has a valuable message that kids--or anyone, for that matter---can apply to their everyday behavior as set by the examples of Big Bird, Elmo, Grover, Snuffy, Bert, Ernie and more. And if you like Sesame Street, you will love the Muppets. They are puppets made by the creator of Sesame Street, Jim Henson, who, by the way, is no longer with us. The Muppets include a cast of a frog named Kermit, a pig nam! ! ed Miss Piggy, a bear named Fozzy, and more. You can rent a Muppet movie at just about any of your local video stores and they are also occasionally on selected premium cable channels. Thank you, that's all I have to say. Really.

When I bought this cd, I was transformed to my childhood since my husband and I were part of the original Sesame Street generation. Now that we have a 9 month old, we would like to share some of our fond memories of Sesame Street with him. The music is timeless, nostalgic and fun to listen to. Our baby quiets down when listening to this cd, and seems to really enjoy the catchy tunes and cleverly written songs. On our long road trip during vacation this summer, my husband and I found ourselves singing the old familiar songs and learned a few new ones we haven't yet heard. If you love Sesame Street as much as we do, this is definitely a keeper.

I agree with other reviewer about this not being the Sesame Street I remember. I was a little kid in the early 80's and the voices of all the characters were different than on this cd. I was disappointed and went on searching for a cd that sounded more like I remember. Then, I found the Sesame Street Old School 3 Disc Set. That one is fabulous! I highly recommend that one!

Who cares if your kids like them. You will love it. I have no kids, and am an otherwise intelligent adult and love it.
Missing are a few favorites, most notably "Will Somebody Come and Play" which is by no doubt available elsewhere.
Sadly thrown on at the end is the terribly politically correct, "We Are All Earthlings" which sounds more like a propaganda song than the more tasteful (and effective) song about discrimination, "Bein' Green."
The sum total? Fun, singable, witty. Yeah, all that, and your kids will probably like it too.
