Format: VHS Tape
This is one of my favorite Elmo videos! I know, I got it for my now 17 month old daughter a few months ago, but it's one I can either crash in the recliner to watch with her, or leave her to watch it while I do dishes, straighten up, etc. My daughter loves anything musical, and this has fun, catchy little ditties from beginning to end! We rotate this one with several other Elmo videos--for mom and dad's benefit, not the little one's! (she could watch it every day!) If you have a little Elmo fan in the house, you MUST own this video!

My now 3 year old son has loved this video from the time he was 6 months old, he still loves it. It has been watched SO MANY times. My second born child (1)can't seem to get enough of the tape either. I have bought many other Elmo tapes and none of them ever get as much attention as this one has gotten. It contains many songs, lots of them educational. One fine face, Five, Three, etc. These songs are not only catchy tunes but they're also very educational. I highly recommend this video.

My 19-month-old daughter can't get enough, and as a Sesame Street fan from way back, neither can I. The songs make her dance, she has learned the parts of her face, and since we always watch it together, it's perfect for our together-time. It's definitely one of our favorites!

My one-year-old loves to watch Elmo on Sesame St. He is equally enthralled with this tape. We have watched it over and over. The good news is that it is entertaining for adults also. I recommend this video for even the youngest of children as the music is peppy and the characters are charming. Two thumbs up from this mom!

We have 5 Elmo tapes in our collection and my 22-mo son always asks to watch this Elmo tape after dinner. The songs and images from this video are entertaining and keep his attention very well. We sometimes even dance together to the songs in the video. It's a lot of fun for my son and us. My only complaint is that it's not available in DVD format. It would save me from rewinding the tape, night after night.

The content of this DVD keeps my 14 month old baby occupied and entertained. If thats the end of it, then this title definitely deserves 5 stars. But like many parents, I like to watch the baby videos TOGETHER with my daughter. For me, however, this DVD makes me want to leave the room when its on. Other reviewers have already said that this DVD is definitely no better than a videocassette. I'd like to add that there are no special features aside from a static picture slideshow of additional Sesame Street titles and chapter selection. The higher digital fidelity is also very poorly executed. The sound is nearly mono and is almost painful to listen to if you have a nicer TV. The picture is grainy and does not look any better than on a 13in TV from the 1980's. I know that the Elmo clips are classics dating back a few years, but it doesn't take much nowadays to remaster older clips.

I hate the idea that the sesame street franchise is expecting kids not to notice these deficiencies. For my daughter's sake, I hope she doesn't.

It would have been nice if CTW had put more than one 30 min video onto the DVD version at least, like they do with Bear in the Big Blue House DVDs, where they let you play one or all three as you choose. No separate sing-along-songs section either. I would expect more from the DVD version. Barney DVDs too are so feature filled! Other than that, its wonderful -- the segments are tied together by Elmo needing an entry for an art show, and are flashbacks tied to various pictures he has drawn. There are many really nice songs on it -- " One fine face " sung with Ernie, Happy Tappin with Elmo, Five Jive, Elmo's song and so on. They are so catchy and fun, we can't stop dancing/playing along with the songs. The DVD version is great for an instant encore on our favorite segments :-) If your child is timid, you might want to watch the especially the section with Julia Roberts in it with baby on your lap the first few times, since Elmo and Julia "scare" each other.

My 22 month old twin girls LOVE this DVD. They love anything with Elmo, though. I like it because it is not really long like so many other toddler videos. I limit their TV/video watching to 1 hour the whole day, and this is usually half of that hour because it is a great video for them to watch while I'm getting dinner on. It is a little educational (numbers, parts of face, thinking of other first, heavy & light, being afraid, hair & fur, imagination, etc...), though I think anything Sesame Street is good material. One of my girls was afraid of Telly the first 5 times they watched it (I think because of his voice), but she gets afraid of weird things on videos. Some of the things in the Baby Einstein videos scared her, but she is over it now. :) My girls love to tap dance like Elmo now!! It is the cutest thing! I highly recommend this DVD to anyone with a toddler who loves Elmo, as Elmo is in the entire DVD!!
