Sesame Street went global a long time ago, but the folks at Putamayo Kids are bringing it back to your playground.
The music company will unveil Sesame Playground on Monday, the CD/DVD that takes kids on a trip to Sesame Streets around the world. Ever wonder what Rubber Ducky sounded like in Chinese or how they open the show in Tanzania? A refereshing change from the same old Elmo song, the Sesame Playground CD takes kids the next step past Dora’s Spanish to a global look at their early morning favorite.
I haven’t seen the DVD yet, but teaser videos on the Putumayo Website show off Sesame Street characters from Brazil, Israel and others. I’m hooked. So if you’re looking for me next week, you’ll have to figure out how to get, how to get . . . to Sesame Street!
