Review of Elmo’s World: Elmo’s Favorite Things on DVD

My 19-month-old son has just discovered Sesame Street. Due to recent illness, he was basically inconsolable at certain times of the night, and we tried Sesame Street DVDs to entertain and calm him down. We recently received Elmo’s World: Elmo’s Favorite Things on DVD, (released on February 7) to review our home, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect! This DVD is a compilation of two hours of some of the best Elmo’s World segments, including themes such as school, birthdays, friends, pets, games, beach, dinosaurs, and more. (Even though my kids are homeschooled, they appreciate the school segment and recognize the similarities between a public institution and our own classroom.)

My youngest son watches this DVD daily. In addition to the songs and activities that are typical for the Elmo’s World segments, he adores the babies. Many parents have realized that, for some kids, the Elmo’s World portion of the Sesame Street programming is the highlight of the show. Save yourself the trouble of fast forwarding on your DVR, and get this DVD for your little Elmo aficionado. If you have a hard-core Elmo fan boy (or girl) in the home, the investment is a wise one.

Pricing for this DVD, which includes several bonus components such as a game, tips for parents, and a downloadable 10 digit to the book, is under $11 at -- you may also chose to download the digital version.
