Two weeks ago on the Wii and DS, Sesame Street: Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece made it’s magical appearance in stores. Kids love Sesame Street or at least my kids did and I know I did and I know my sister did. So having a video game with their favorite characters teaching them things kind of excites me must a little. I mean they’re going to be playing a game anyways so why not be educational.
Sesame Street: Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece was designed around Sesame Workshop’s early childhood development curriculum, Sesame Street: Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece encourages music creation, physical aspects of movement and dance, emotional expression through music and dance, exploration of instruments, and introduces academic aspects of music such as mathematics in music (patterns, counting), musical elements, and notation.
We also had a little extra fun because we didn’t have a Wii and they sent us a Wii so that we could have a little Sesame Street: Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece party. We had lots of fun sharing our new toys with our friends and neighbors. We had some pin the nose on Elmo fun and we had some game fun.
An action-filled console and handheld video game, Sesame Street: Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece lets preschoolers play instruments, explore music and dance with Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Count von Count and the honkers as they travel through a music-themed land of wonder. Through their fun adventures, the game is designed to teach young players how music and dance occur in everyday life. The game also includes music performed by GRAMMY® award-winning band Ozomatli and includes original songs by the popular Los Angeles-based band.
Sesame Street: Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece for Wii or Nintendo DS is rated ‘EC’ for Early Childhood and can be purchased at retail stores nationwide or via the Sesame Street Online Store for $19.99 each beginning today. “Sesame Street: Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece gets children up and dancing and encourages music creation,” said Rosemarie Truglio, Ph.D., Vice President of Education & Research, Sesame Workshop. “The game also explores emotional expression through music and dance, introduces instrument names and sounds, and helps children to practice early math skills through music.”
This is a great game for preschoolers and it’s fun for them. They love seeing the Sesame Street characters and exploring dance with Abby Cadabby (Zoe loves her and Miles loves Elmo).
