Product Description

Sesame Street: Kids' Favorite Songs (DVD)

Amazon.ca

Kids' Favorite Songs kicks off with a cackle-worthy parody of Bob Dylan doing "Old McDonald," and from there the groovy gags keep comin' 'round the mountain. Everywhere Elmo turns on Sesame Street monsters spontaneously burst into song, and all because they want him to feature their favorite tunes on his forthcoming radio countdown. For Telly, winnowing the hits to one is akin to Cookie Monster choosing between a macaroon and a figgie bar: at first he's sure that "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" lights his fire, but then he says bye-bye to a black sheep. The street heaves a collective sigh pavementward when word comes down that the countdown is strictly a numbers gig, no music involved. Only Sesame Street could weave well-loved musical numbers around a simple numbers lesson with such wacky pizzazz, making this a countdown that's no letdown for high-spirited parent-preschooler combos. --Tammy La Gorce --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
Of all the Sesame Street DVDs that we have, this one is definitely my daughter's favorite. Though she is only 15 months old, she now sings bits and pieces and hums the tune to several of the songs on here. When my husband and I try to watch a DVD, she will run over and grab this one and shove at us to put it in so she can watch it.
Unlike some other Sesame Street DVDs, this one actually has somewhat of a plot. Everyone on Sesame Street thinks that Elmo is going to do a top ten countdown of his favorite songs on the radio, so they all spend the entire time trying to convince him to use their favorite song on the countdown - turns out all Elmo wants is some quiet time so that he can practice his top ten countdown (all he is going to do on the radio is count backwards from 10 to 1.) The songs on here are some favorite kids' songs - I've Been Working on the Railroad, Baa Baa Black Sheep, The Alphabet Song, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Row Row Row Your Boat, She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain, John Jacob Jingle-Heimer Schmidt, etc. If you only purchase one Sesame Street DVD, this should be it!

Format: DVD
I purchased "Sesame Street - Kids' Favorite Songs" (part I and II) on Amazon and both the DVDs are in the return box now for the following reasons:
- The songs are performed mostly by Sesame street characters and adults. Kids come and go in some songs, but the songs are not performed by children. My daughter doesn't like characters alone, so she didn't even watch the first song completely.
- There is a lot of talking. I wanted a video with just songs and only songs.
- Since the songs are performed by characters, they are not as musical as the ones performed by children. In some cases, the lyrics are hard to understand because the characters sing too fast and loud.
My daughter wants to watch other children sing and play and learns a lot from it. That is where this DVD set disappointed me. The quality of the DVD and the production are up to Sesame street standards.
In summary, if your kids like Sesame street characters, they would love this video. For me, these DVDs are going back and will be replaced by "Cedarmont Kids Sing-Along Songs 3 Volume Set" by TimeLife videos.

Format: VHS Tape
The premise of this tape is that Elmo has been asked to do a "Top Ten Countdown" on the radio, so all of the sesame street characters want to be sure that their favorite song is included in the "Top Ten." As Elmo travels around Sesame Street, each of them sings their favorite song to (or with) him.
Our two year old is mildly interested in Sesame Street but she seems to really enjoy this tape. The music is lively and there's enough going on to hold a toddler's attention. The tape contains several classic children's songs such as "Row, Row, Row Your Boat", and "I've Been Working on the Railroad." Throughout the tape, the concept of counting down (from 10 to 1) is repeated either by Elmo or a couple of short cartoons. Overall, I highly recommend this tape.
The only negative comment that I have is that the first several minutes of the tape contains ads for other Sesame Street tapes. I find this to be annoying because you have to fast-forward through them each time you want to play the tape. If they have to include them, I wish that they'd put them at the end of the tape.

Format: DVD
My biggest problem with this DVD is that it is so incredibly short. They claim 32 minutes play time, which is a complete lie. A good part of that is commercials and credits. We clocked just under 17 minutes of actual entertainment. The commercials weren't even good ones that entertain. Credits can also be fun, but not in this movie. The kid is not interested.
My next problem is that the DVD is very old. The audio is chalky. The audio quality sounds as if they took an old video tape and digitally recorded it (as opposed to 'digitally remastered').
There is no menu and no chapters. You can't fast forward to the actual movie, you have to manually forward the movie. It's as if they took an old VHS tape and put in your DVD player. One would think that Sony could invest $20 in software to make the few adjustments necessary.
I think that this DVD is worthless. Do not be taken in by its low price. $1 is too much to pay.

Format: VHS Tape
My 21 month old daughter is a Sesame Street fanatic and has been since about 12 months old, when she got this tape. Not only do I love the beginning song (which sounds like Bob Dylan) but all of the songs on this tape are old favorites: "I've been working on the railroad", "Twinkle, twinkle little star", and my daughter's favorite, "She'll be coming 'round the mountain". In other words, if you are looking for a tape of Sesame Street songs, this is not the tape for you. Yes, this is a S.S. video, but the songs are kid's favorites, sung by the characters on the show. When I first popped in the tape, I was expecting "Rubber Duckie" and the other cute songs from the show. However, this is not the case, but is NOT a disappointment. Sesame Street fans will love singing and dancing along to the video, which is adorable and will be played in your house for a long time.
