We are so excited! Another Sesame Street game for preschoolers. If there’s one type of video game I like it’s educational video games. Being that the hubs is a huge gamer this will be a great game for the kids to bond with dad. We are already huge fans of Sesame Street’s Once Upon a Monster we talked about it here and here
So far, we have heard the game will be available for DS and Wii. According to the press release by Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment:
Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece[is] an action-filled console and handheld video game encouraging preschoolers to sing, dance, and learn through a series of fun musical games. Based on “Sesame Street,” the award-winning children’s television series, the learning game will be available for Wii™ and Nintendo DS™ in June 2012.
“In Sesame Street: Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece, parents can inspire an understanding of music and dance in a kid-friendly environment with their favorite Sesame Street characters,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “We worked closely with the early childhood development experts at Sesame Workshop to create fun interactive activities that help kids foster a love for music.”
“Sesame Street: Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece gets children up and dancing and encourages music creation,” said Rosemarie Truglio, Ph.D., Vice President of Education & Research, Sesame Workshop. “The game also explores emotional expression through music and dance, introduces instrument names and sounds, and helps children to practice early math skills through music.”
Also we are so excited to hear that Los Angeles own, Ozomatli, Three time grammy award winning band, performs all the music to the game! Yay!!!!! Be ready to move and groove to their awesome sound.
If that wasn’t super cool to look forward to this summer, preschoolers have the new Sesame Street: Elmo’s Magic Numbers available on DVD on July 10, 2012. Where we’ll learn the importance behind counting, numbers and early math skills.
