Sesame Street: Big Elmo Fun

Being a stay at home mom, I'm always looking for ways to keep all three of the girls entertained while I get housework done. Sure we do lots of playing, reading, and coloring, but sometimes Mommy has to do a load of laundry downstairs and needs something to keep the little guys from destroying the house (last time I attempted laundry without a distraction I ended up with a lipstick and mascara mural on the wall). Luckily for me, Willow, Ella, and Madeline all love movies, and they especially love Elmo! Needless to say I was super excited when we were offered a copy of Sesame Street: Big Elmo Fun! for review!

"Elmo embarks on some gigantic adventures in Sesame Street: Big Elmo Fun! In “Elmozilla,” he is accidentally enlarged and towers over all of Sesame Street. While Abby tries to figure out how to get Elmo back to his normal size, kids will learn all about measurement as they help solve Elmo’s BIG problem. In “Elmo and the Monarch Butterfly” children will learn about science and observation.  Finally, in a spoof of the hit cooking show Iron Chef, Elmo stirs up even more fun in a silly cooking competition “Cast Iron Cooks,” with Jason Schwartzman as the judge. In all three episodes, children are introduced to new vocabulary such as fascinating, metamorphosis, ingredient and measure. Kids and caregivers are in for a BIG treat with two brand-new songs, and the “Flutter By, Butterfly” animated book to reinforce the lessons learned during Elmo’s adventures.

“Warner Home Video is thrilled to bring Elmo’s latest adventure to DVD with the release of Sesame Street: Big Elmo Fun,” said Jeff Brown, WHV Executive Vice President and GM of Non-Theatrical Franchise. “With brand-new songs, an animated book, and a full-length bonus DVD, preschoolers will have loads of Big Elmo Fun while enriching their cognitive reasoning and math skills.” 

Our copy of Sesame Street: Big Elmo Fun arrived this morning, and Willow was so excited to open the package. When she saw that it was Elmo, she started yelling "Oh happy day Mommy!" and begged to put it on. In the first episode, "Elmozilla", Elmo is really sad when he realizes that he hasn't grown as much as Abby, and asks her to do a magic spell to make him big. Of course Abby's spell backfires and Elmo ends up being too big! Willow kept saying "Oh no Elmo too big!" "Elmo no fit" and "Poor Elmo!" Soon elmo realizes that being big isn't all it's cracked up to be, and is able to return to his normal size. Willow was so relived to see Elmo back to normal! "Elmo just right!"

She also loved watching "Elmo and the Monarch Butterfly" and learning all about butterflies and what they eat. She was so excited to see Elmo dressed up as a "flutterby" and to see all his flutterby friends on screen. "Cast Iron Cooks" was also great and had her giggling a few times! Your little one will love Sesame Street: Big Elmo Fun, make sure to get your copy when it becomes available on April 3rd! Big Elmo Fun is available for preorder on Amazon for only $11.99!
