Earlier this month we visited Sesame Worktop for a preview screening of “Elmo The Musical” DVD, a math-filled adventure inviting kids to sing, dance, play and imagine along with Elmo.

Elmo The Musical

I was invited as media to this event and received a DVD for giveaway purpose. No other compensation was received. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

Whenever we visit Sesame Workshop there's always lots of fun to be had. This time was no different. There's was lots of activities to enjoy before the screening including

Sesame Street Abby Cadabby

Meeting Abby Cadabby! Our favorite little fairy was there to give lots of hugs and pose for photos with the kids.

Elmo The Musical Storyteller App

Testing out the Elmo the Musical Storyteller App, which introduces children to the basics of story-building using kooky characters, interesting objects, and more! The app is available now for iPads for $3.99 and will also release on for Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7 and 8.9, and Kindle Fire Gen 2.

Check out the below video to see my son playing with the app.

Then we went to the cookie decorating table.

Where we colored....and eat Elmo cookies. I was hoping to save it but my son thought his artwork was too delicious to save. LOL

After snacking on the cookie, my son did some normal coloring of “Elmo The Musical” pages before we headed into the screening area.

Once in the screening area we put on our musical hats, took our seats and enjoyed watching a episode of “Elmo The Musical”

An extension of Sesame Street STEAM curriculum, “Elmo The Musical” is an interactive, fun-filled musical adventure created by Elmo and the child at home. With lots of silly singing and dancing, “Elmo The Musical” focuses on imagination and how to use math skills, such as enumeration, relational concepts, addition/subtraction and geometric shapes to solve problems.

In new season 43 episodes, children will join Elmo on exciting explorations as he imagines himself in “Sea Captain the Musical,” “Guacamole the Musical,” “Prince Elmo the Musical” and even “President the Musical!”

That’s not all! The new segment is designed to be accessible to kids on multiple platforms. New games, clips and activities themed around the segment will be available on and mobile devices for kids to learn math skills and play with Elmo.

Sesame Street Alan and Elmo

After the preview screening, a special Sesame Street cast member came out with Elmo to greet the kids and sing a song. It was Alan from Hooper's Store! Alan and Elmo chose 3 kids from the audience to help them sing the math son. One of them was my son! It was such a bitter sweet moment. More about that in a later blog post.

My son and I really liked “Elmo The Musical” and we know your family will also, so make sure to enter this giveaway for the DVD!
