We sat with excitement not knowing what to expect. Sure we had seen Curious George, but this was Sesame Street!
The kids settled into their seats with their jumbo bag of cotton candy, which they were instructed to share, with eyes glued on the stage.
And then there they were; all our favorites. We were a little bummed that Zoe hadn’t tagged along with Elmo. They are best friends, you know, but Abby Cadabby, Ernie, the Count and Cookie Monster were there, so we couldn’t stay sad for long.
We were taken on all sorts of adventures with the help of our imaginations. You just close your eyes, think of a place and then you are there. Get it? 1-2-3!
Our favorites were:
Ernie’s trip on the high seas on the SS Rubber Duckie.
The dancing glowing fish kept the kids mesmerized.
We even got to meet an octopus that sang and dance.
Then Elmo transported us to Africa:
Finally the show ended with a parade. Something we know a little bit about down here:
Of course this show, coming from Sesame Street, delivered consistency and familiarity which made the kids feel comfortable. There were many kids dressed as their favorite character from the show which I am sure added to their excitement. The characters moved with ease and their voices were perfect. A key component when dealing with kids and their favorites. They will notice the tiniest detailif out of place. Sam imagined right along with the characters and in true Sesame Street fashion learned through music, dance and pure entertainment. I will admit I was happy to see my favorites, as well, Count, Ernie and, everyone’s favorite I think, Cookie Monster.
There was only one small problem the 90 minute length of the show. While I wouldn’t cut anything, because it would take away from the show as a whole, the small kids seemed ill equipped to handle 90 minutes. Even the most well behaved children were on the verge of full on meltdown after the intermission. However, that could be that it was 7pm on a Friday night. I would have loved to have taken the kids to one of the earlier shows, but our schedule didn’t permit it. Even with the struggle of keeping tired children from melting down, the show was a success. I mean look at that face what do you think?
That face is all the endorsement you should need to know that this show was a success.
We received 5 free tickets to the show in return for a blog giveaway and my review.
