Product Description

Amazon.ca

Poor Telly: Just when the internationally acclaimed percussion troupe, Stomp, is on their way to Sesame Street for a jam session, he misplaces his tuba. Luckily, Telly's buddy, Elmo, explains that fancy instruments are not required to create music, and that's an invitation to 40 minutes of delightful noisemaking that reaches far beyond clanging pot lids. Soda bottles become woodwinds, pasta jars rattle like maracas, a plastic garbage can works as a bass drum, and if those items can't be found, feet and hands will do just fine. The half-dozen members of Stomp (themselves looking like Sesame Street alumnae) interact beautifully with the entire gang, whether playing a foot-tapping version of "Follow the Leader" with the kids or tooting a catchy ditty on empty bottles with Muppets and adults. Other familiar elements from the regular daytime Emmy award-winning show--including short educational cartoons, Muppet skits, video shorts of kids teaching kids, and lively dance numbers--make for a thoroughly enriching experience. Heartily recommended for children ages 3 to 7. --Liane Thomas

Hurray for Sesame Street! They've made yet another video that appeals to all ages. Like many toddlers, the children in our household tend to watch the same video over and over and over again. They seem to thrive on repetition which is wonderful for their learning and growing (albeit sometimes a little irritating for the "older" family members). By including the rythmic geniuses of the Stomp! crew, they've managed to capture the attention and creativity of the toddlers and entertain the rest of the family as well.
Their use of simple, everyday objects as musical instruments was particularly appealing, especially in these days of heavy commercialism. We also enjoyed the dancing and the familiar Sesame Street characters. This video invites participation so there's no need to worry about the "couch potato effect."
"Let's Make Music" is our family favorite!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stomp is a great addition Aug. 19 2003
Format:DVD
The cast of Stomp is a great addition to this DVD. My daughter fell in love with it the first time we watched it and asks for it repeatedly. More importantly, it is not overly annoying to adults.
How I rated this DVD:
* Educational value. Since buying this DVD my daughter has become very interested in making her own music. I have found her stomping, making drums from rubbermade containers, and trying to blow in bottles. She is only 20 months old and I think this is very impressive since we have only had the tape a few weeks.
* Entertaining to child. Keeps her entertained through the whole video.
* Entertaining to adults. I can even watch the tape with her and not become mindlessly numb.
* The DVD starts right at the menu. No annoying commercials to sit through.
* Cost. The video did not break the budget. It was reasonably priced.

5.0 out of 5 stars When Your Heart Is Open Wide.... Feb. 26 2001

Format:VHS Tape
...then everything *truly* is music. This wonderful video is teaching my 2-year old son, *and* re-reminding me of the beautiful simplicity of ordinary objects around us. It awakens the imagination to how these common materials can be used and played with in new and unusual ways. I delight in watching my son pat-pat-pat on tables with wooden spoons or tinker toy sticks. He has even created his own musical instrument by taking a can, filling it with rocks and shaking it, yelling, "moo-sik!" - with no probing from me. To think of the money I have spent on 'real' musical instruments. Completely fun, totally foot-stomping, AND educational entertainment for all ages. As an aside, those Stomp cast members are not only extremely talented, but pretty darn cute to look upon!! In my opinion, one of the best in Sesame Street videos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inventive and fun March 27 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Cast members from Stomp ! and characters from Sesame Street demonstrate that music, and particularly percussion, can be made and found everywhere. Combining the Sesame Street habitat with animation and live-action video tape keeps the pace moving. The variety of musical experiences is remarkable. We see hand-clapping games and drumming by children, chanting,pot-and-pan banging, as well as Stomp cast-members' inventive use of everyday objects that include balls, paper bags and huge oil drums. There's a wonderful sequence that choreographs cracking eggs and slamming doors. It's a terrific tape and our 2-year old has gotten a lot from it.
One word of advice for those with younger kids. You may need to use your fast-forward button at times as some sections are perhaps too talky but that depends on your kid of course.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Sesame Street videos! Feb. 1 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of my favorite Sesame Street videos and we have several. In this video, Telly learns that music can be made from many different things, as the members of Stomp! make music all along Sesame Street with different every day objects. My favorite part has to be the "can can" part with Oscar the Grouch. The two guys from Stomp! in this part are hilarious with their facial expressions and then dialogue ("Cans? We've got cans!" and "Yeah, we'll go get them!"). Trust me, you've got to see that part. It's adorable.
Easily one of my daughter's favorite videos too, she will sit through this one time and time again. It is a great video for fans of Sesame Street (of all ages!).

The cast of Stomp visits Sesame Street in this fantastic DVD.
In the usual Sesame Street style, there is a general plot line (Telly loses his Tuba) intertwined with short bits and cartoons all related to making music. The Stomp cast crosses in and out of the plot, making music with brooms, cans, boxes of Tic Tacs, etc. Very creative and very charming.
My 14-month-old loves this video. He's just starting to try to make "music" along with the video, usually using an oatmeal box or pots and pans that I put nearby for him to use.
Great stuff, including the "Pinball" cartoon (counting to 12) that I loved to watch when I was little.

5.0 out of 5 stars Both mother and daughter like this one Aug. 26 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I know that every child is different and even in the same household what holds one child's interest doesn't hold another. That being said my daughter loves this video. It's a great way to teach children about music. We both love all the segments interspersed in this one from Bert's "Oatmeal Box" song, to the oldie, and one of my personal favorites "The Pinball Song- (1,2,3,4,5,..6,7,8,9,10,..11,12), and Elmo's "What Makes Music...". And of course Stomp. Great ways to show a toddler how to make music from ordinary items. This one is a winner in our home (this one and Elmo's World videos).
