Oct 11, 2012The game misses the mark in several ways, but with the right programming and more analysis into whether toddlers are really the most appropriate target for this sort of product, we could be witnessing the birth of a whole new educational medium. It's just not there yet.

My problem is that my kids just didn't like it.… Full Review »

Both kids love watching, and while it's a little much for the 2 year old to participate in, he has a ball copying his sister when she starts taking part. There's some nostalgia value here in the videos from the 'good old days' and Achievement junkies will love how frequently they pop up.

You get roughly 8 episodes of Sesame Street from the current season that have been modified to add some interaction with the children. Some of the skits are specifically designed around the Kinect, with characters challenging you to simple games like tossing balls into a basket or remaining perfectly still till The Count counts to 11. Other skits, like the opening 15 minute story that begins most episodes of Sesame Street, are just as they were when originally aired, but with added graphics hidden throughout that you are tasked with finding and yelling "Picture!" to take a picture of.
Some neat little tricks with the Kinect, like a character who is a mirror that gives a nice reflection of your real-life room add to the experience.
There's not a whole lot of content on the disc, but each copy also comes with a DLC subscription to Sesame Street TV, which gives you access to loads of Sesame Street skits to watch on your Xbox. Keep in mind, though, that these are available free from the Sesame Street website as well. So it's not as big a bonus as it at first seems.
As a bit of a bonus, if you happen to be an Achievement Point junkie; the disc and the included DLC each come with an easy 1000 points.
I suppose the bottom line, though, is that my 2.5 year old daughter loves it.… Full Review »
