Sesame Street whenever your child wants it

Sesame Go

Could this app help your child prepare for school? Studies show preschoolers who watch Sesame Street perform significantly better than those who don’t, the Sesame Workshop says.

With Sesame Go, your children can instantly watch hundreds of episodes of Sesame Street, Sesame Street Classics, and Pinky Dinky Doo episodes. The shows are presented in a secure, ad-free, and child-friendly environment. They can watched on a PC, Mac, smartphone, or tablet. “Sesame Go’s video player was specially customized with little hands in mind,” the developers add, saying its “colorful, easy-to-control buttons will make it simple for your child to use.”

The video subscription service is $4 a month, with a 2-week free trial.

It’s good from newborn to 24 months with a 3-position height adjustment that “grows with your baby.” The playmat, “exersaucer,” and activity table are one unit, and fold to “significantly smaller to make travel and storage easy.”
