Headsup: Kids’ Corner #2

Disclaimer: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment requests we note that it provided a free copy of the first title featured below. The opinions I share are my own.

 

Out now are three new titles to help your kids get in some laughter and adventure:

 
Elmo's Wonderful World DVDFirst we have Sesame Street: Elmo’s Wonderful World, where the beloved muppet takes his preschool audience on an exploration of sharing, counting, kindness, playing dress up, meeting bees, and more.  Along for the ride are Elmo’s friends Smartie, Mr. Noodle, and Mr. Noodle’s dog Schmoodle.  In addition to the thirteen new Elmo’s World episodes, bonus features on this one include two episodes of Sesame Street‘s new spin-off Furchester Hotel (a fun new show featuring Elmo and Cookie Monster as they try to help the well-meaning but less-than-competent Furchester-Fuzz family run an upscale hotel), along with three classic Elmo’s World Episodes (“Frogs,” “Violins,” and “Helping”).

Sesame Street: Elmo’s Wonderful World is out now from Warner Brothers on DVD, which includes over two hours of Elmo’s World episodes.  The DVD is now available on Amazon for $9.19 and you can get a taste of the show with the clip below.

    Threadless: Villains, Nightmares, Muppets & Discounts

    Drink Me Coffee Mug by Threadless

    It’s been a while since we’ve tackled any sort of Threadless/t-shirt update, so let’s dive in by saying first that Threadless has expanded their product line into dish towels and coffee mugs. Considering the amount of coffee-related shirts they have, it’s sort of amazing they only have the one coffee-related coffee mug thus far (“Drink Me Coffee” by Phil Jones–pictured). But their entire home and kitchen section can be found here.

    Win Big Elmo Fun on DVD!

    Sesame Street: Big Elmo Fun DVD

    It’s a new Sesame Street DVD title, Big Elmo Fun, out on DVD from Warner Brothers and Sesame Workshop. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

    Elmo embarks on some gigantic adventures in Sesame Street: Big Elmo Fun! In “Elmozilla,” he is accidentally enlarged and towers over all of Sesame Street. While Abby tries to figure out how to get Elmo back to his normal size, kids will learn all about measurement as they help solve Elmo’s BIG problem. In “Elmo and the Monarch Butterfly” children will learn about science and observation. Finally, in a spoof of the hit cooking show Iron Chef, Elmo stirs up even more fun in a silly cooking competition “Cast Iron Cooks,” with Jason Schwartzman as the judge. In all three episodes, children are introduced to new vocabulary such as fascinating, metamorphosis, ingredient and measure. Kids and caregivers are in for a BIG treat with two brand-new songs, and the “Flutter By, Butterfly” animated book to reinforce the lessons learned during Elmo’s adventures.

    We’ve got a copy of the DVD to give away. Want to win it? Excellent. Here’s how that happens: you enter using the form below. Remember you can enter once a day. If we draw your name when the contest ends, you snag it! Good luck!
