Sesame Street: Elmo's Animal Adventures

if there is one thing that we go crazy for around here, it is elmo.  i honestly do not know how it happened.  we are hardly ever home when elmo comes on, yet tate must have us read every elmo book we own, over and over again.  he manages to wheedle us into finding elmo videos for him on the internet, and his speech therapist can't do a thing with him until she's gotten out her elmo book and let him pore over the pages.  it is actually hard for me to believe that elmo hasn't played as big a part in tate's speech development as his therapist has.  (surely his first word wasn't elmo?!?)

so you can imagine how thrilled tate is with our newly released elmo dvd.  elmo's animal adventures includes three adventures of elmo and his friends.  elmo and tilly must find little bo peep's missing cow by following clues.  animal facts (and you!) help elmo and abby "find the amphibian" and, finally, elmo goes camping while learning that sharing is fun and discovering the different food animals eat.

for those of you (like us) who simply must have this dvd, it is available now for $9.99 on (find it here:  sesame street: elmo's animal adventures).  if you like to play the odds (and i think in this instance they are pretty good), you can have a chance to win one of three copies of elmo's animal adventures right here on this very blog.

here's what you do:  leave me a comment telling me your favorite sesame street character and why that character is your favorite.  on wednesday, october 14, at 9.04 pm central time, i will choose three winners.  (you must have a united states address to play).

i received a copy of elmo's animal adventures to review.  i have been in no other way compensated for this review.  if you order this dvd through amazon using the link above, i might earn 50 cents or so...


  1. Cookie Monster would have to be my favorite because well...he's just blatantly honest about how most of us secretly feel about cookies. ;)

  2. I love Grover's silly misadventures with Mr. Johnson--a healthy dose of sarcasm for the grown-ups.

  3. Tough call. As a kid, Bert and Ernie were my favorites for reasons I can neither articulate now nor could I then. Oscar is refreshingly grouchy when others around him are so happy one suspects an excess of medication is involved. I'm going to have to go with the Count however. The crash of thunder after counting to three (ah ah ah!) still cracks me up after all these years.

  4. I love Grover. He's so fuzzy and cuddly looking. Sydney's favorite is definitely Elmo--it must be a 2.5 year old thing. She also likes "Abby Ca-Abby" but not as much.

  5. C is for cookie-Cookie Monster of course is my fav but I am also fond of Big Bird too.

  6. I have always been fond of Big Bird. My childhood nickname was "bird" (only at home, thank you) and ironically my husband's high school nickname was Snuffleupagus. So I guess we were meant to be...

  7. My favorite has always been Grover, there isn't anything as great as old snuggleable Grover. Interesting though, Jason and I had this conversation last week. His favorite growing up was Snuffleupagus. He says now it would be Grover. Sesame Street is great isn't it!

  8. My favorite was/is Ernie. Do you remember the skit when they were fishing? Ernie would yell..."here Fishy, fishy, fishy" and then the fish would jump into the boat. Okay, maybe you don't remember it, but I do, and loved it. I also loved when he would start singing and Bert's bed would start dancing. :)
