Learn and Play with Favorite Friends
Since Sesame Street first hit the airwaves in 1969, kids have loved he characters and they've had a special place in the hearts of three generations of eager learners. Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Bert, Ernie, Oscar the Grouch, Zoe, Grover Snuffleupagus, Abby Cadabby and so many more have become beloved friends -and an important part of kids' earliest entertainment experiences.
Designed initially to give kids a head start on education, the show has always focused on basic skill development such as letters and numbers, but it has also taken on social and emotional issues. Now nearly 50 years later, these characters are an established part of the global culture.
Toys have played a big part in the growth of Sesame Street. There are, of course, cultural phenomena like Tickle Me Elmo from 1996 (and back again today). For the most part though the characters have engaged kids in their personal exploration, learning and growth from their earliest ages. Delivering educational and sometimes through cuddly characters in a safe and nurturing environment has proven successful again and again. Small wonder kids love the toys.
There are so many different Sesame Street toys!
The show was originally designed as a way to give preschoolers a head start on education, so it's no surprise that many of their toys are great for tiny tots. Playing with characters like the lovable and always curious Elmo and the eager to learn fairy Abby Cadabby encourage kids to be excited about learning.
Playsets help children act out their own Sesame Street stories and integrate the lessons into their own lives in their own time. This kind of narrative play is especially beneficial during early years as children begin to get senses of themselves as individual and within social contexts of the family and early school.
And for a best friend, what's better that a favorite character to hold and cuddle. Stuffed toys in a wide variety of sizes and prices are perfect for kids who have one special friend... or who want to create their own cast of Sesame Street characters.
Best of all, you can and your kids can get to Sesame Street any time, and with the help of the TTPM's toy reviews above, you can find the toys that will help inspire learning in so many ways!
