I grew up watching Sesame Street and my kids love to watch Sesame Street. We are always excited when a new Sesame Street or Elmo DVD comes out! I recently had the opportunity to review “Elmo and Abby’s Birthday Fun” on DVD. It was released on Tuesday, June 2nd! This is a great DVD that even the parents will enjoy watching with their kids.

In “Elmo and Abby’s Birthday Fun,” it’s Dorothy’s birthday on Sesame Street. Elmo is so excited to celebrate the birthday of his little fish friend! Abby wants to help but she has never been to a Sesame Street birthday party before (only Fairy Tale birthday parties). Elmo teaches Abby all about Sesame Street birthday parties, such as pin the tail on the donkey, playing the piΓ±ata game, and opening presents. Abby then takes Elmo on a magic adventure to Fairytale Land, where they celebrate the birthday of Little Red Riding Hood! You can join in the fun with Elmo and Abby as they learn about the many ways that birthdays are celebrated. Elmo learns all about the true meaning of a birthday wish – accompanied by a big flowered hat, a gigantic cake, and lots of birthday wishes.
