Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece

We are not a “gamer” family.  I enjoy video games (or I did until the jerks broke in to our house and stole my Wii), and Caity got a hand-me-down DS for her last birthday.  The twins are iPod Touch and iPad proficient with most apps aimed at their age range. But we are not into the whole “gaming” thing.  But when I was contacted and asked to review the latest Nintendo game both Cait and I jumped at the chance.

Designed around Sesame Workshop’s early childhood development curriculum, Sesame Street: Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece encourages music creation, physical aspects of movement and dance, emotional expression through music and dance, exploration of instruments, and introduces academic aspects of music such as mathematics in music (patterns, counting), musical elements, and notation.

An action-filled console and handheld video game, Sesame Street: Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece lets preschoolers play instruments, explore music and dance with Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Count von Count and the honkers as they travel through a music-themed land of wonder.  Through their fun adventures, the game is designed to teach young players how music and dance occur in everyday life. The game also includes music performed by GRAMMY® award-winning band Ozomatli and includes original songs by the popular Los Angeles-based band.

Sesame Street: Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece for Wii or Nintendo DS is rated ‘EC’ for Early Childhood which means it is ok for kids 3 and up.  Although we will never know how the twins like it because if one of them lays a finger on Cait’s DS all hell will break loose!
