Sesame Street Celebrates the Big 40

Sesame Street is celebrating 40 years today! Present to celebrate this big 40th anniversary will be First Lady Michelle Obama to plant vegetable seeds with Big Bird and Elmo. How has Sesame Street stayed so popular 40 years running? Sesame Street is fun, educational, always presenting new learning techniques, and current with technology. Sesame Street even has its own theme park in Pennsylvania – Sesame Place.

Sesame Street has always managed to maintain their strong commitment to children and early education for the past 40 years. Sesame Street is funded through donations and product purchases. Toddlers and babies love Elmo, and wiggle and move to the fun tunes of Sesame Street. The Sesame Street website includes games, stories, coloring pages, parent tips, introductions to the different muppets, and much more.

Sesame Street costumes make excellent birthday and Christmas presents for kids, including the fun and colorful Abby Cadabby costume for girls. Adult size Grouch costumes and Cookie Monster headpieces were hot items for Halloween costumes in 2009. Additional Sesame Street gift ideas include the always-popular Elmo dolls, character cups and dishes, books, movies, stuffed animals, and more. Babies and toddlers love to receive Sesame Street character gifts, and you can trust the brand.

At 40 years young, Sesame Street has received a Lifetime Achievement award and 122 Emmy awards to date. It should be interesting to witness what the next 40 years bring.
