Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.
Everyone’s favorite furry characters are back at it again! Elmo and his friends discover the magic of numbers in their newest educational adventure, Sesame Street: Monster Magic. This special has fun brewing on Sesame Street and Elmo, Rosita, Abby are exploring their magical talents, while learning a thing or two along the way. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Sesame Workshop, the non-profit, educational organization whose mission is to help kids grow smarter, stronger and kinder, will release Sesame Street: Monster Magic on DVD October 4, 2016.
My girls loved watching over 2 hours of their furry friends! This is now one a top pick in the car when we go on long car rides. As a matter of fact, I don’t think it has left the DVD player since we first put it in there. I love this DVD because my girls have already learned a lot from it (as is true about Sesame Street in general). I also like that the DVD comes with a free growth chart! My 3 year old put it up in her room and is tracking her growth to see when she will “catch up to her big sister”. I highly recommend picking this up if you have little ones!
Sometimes magic doesn’t turn out like you think it will, but through fun mishaps, it can help kids learn about critical thinking, problem solving and task persistence. In Sesame Street: Monster Magic Abby, Rosita, and Zoe celebrate the amazing number 7 by conjuring up “The Dance of the 7 Chickens,” some spell-binding tricks, and even 7 Elmos! Then, Abby poofs Leela into the perfect party outfit with a magical game of dress-up. Along with their Sesame friends, kids can also learn about numbers, counting, emotions, friendship and using your imagination. Fans can also enjoy some spectacular bonus features including a Claymation titled “Bert and Ernie’s Great Adventures: Magicians,” a printable “Elmo’s Magic Mix-up” storybook, and the Amazing Mumford Rabbit Trick clip. Plus, fans won’t want to miss Grammy-Award nominated singer songwriter, Sara Bareilles’ rendition of “Just Like Magic.” The special provides more than two hours of fun with everyone’s favorite furry red monster and his friends!
“Warner Bros. is excited to be releasing Sesame Street: Monster Magic as the newest addition to the Sesame Street collection” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “Children will become enthralled by the magic tricks that Elmo and his friends have lined up, it’s a fantastic teaching tool and makes learning that much more exciting.”
Now in its 46th season, Sesame Street is the longest-running program in children’s television and the number one top-of-mind preschool show with moms. Sesame Street also has the highest “co-viewing” experience – meaning adults watching with kids – of any preschool show. The series has received more Emmy awards than any other show in television history, as well as a Lifetime Achievement Emmy Award honoring the 40th year.
