As a child, Sesame Street was one of my favorite television shows.
I think a lot of us can say this.
Sesame Street has always been great at incorporating different cultures in their shows, and I think this is what attracted me the most.
I got to see kids that looked very similar to my family and spoke spanish like I did.
Now, when Audrey watches, I have no regrets. I love having that little extra time for me and at the same time know she is benefiting from what Sesame Street has to offer.
Recently, Audrey and I visited the Warner Brothers Studio here in LA for a blogger event. I got to see a hang out with local friends and meet new ones and there was free babysitting... a room full of Sesame Street, kids, and goodies to eat = Audrey's in heaven.
While the kids ate... we mom's ate too ( :
And heard all about their new educational video game. Educational? Sound too good to be true?
I know. I always have those same feelings when it comes to tv/video games. Yet, I trust Sesame Street and got to experience and hear all the education aspect from their Vice President of Education and Research Dr. Rosemarie Truglio. A Ph.D. in Developmental and Child Psychology, and a mom, like me.
Elmo's A-to-Zoo Adventure and Cookie's Counting Carnival are available for the Wii ,Nintendo DS and PC. They are easy to play, yet adapt in difficulty to your child's level. The games also include gameplay helpers for smaller hands which help minimize unnecessary buttons and make it easier to hold.
I love that Sesame Street has really taken the time to develop these great games for preschoolers. As much as I encourage our kids to do something else other than media...we have evolved so much with technology. Audrey witnesses her family online, watching tv and on our cellphones and we have found it best in our home to set limits rather than exclude them from technology completely.
Games like these are perfect for our family. And appreciated.
Audrey has the A-to-Zoo Adventure....she wants two of you to get a copy of your choice also, either Elmo's A-to-Zoo Adventure or Cookie's Counting Carnival .
