Sesame Street: 50 Years and Counting DVD Review & Giveaway #ThisIsMyStreet



Sesame Street’s yearlong 50th anniversary celebrates the timeless lesson that Sesame Street has always taught: everyone, no matter who they are or where they are from, is equally deserving of respect, opportunity, and joy. Throughout 2019, families everywhere can join all their furry and feathered friends in celebrating Sesame Street’s past, present, and future with a nationwide road trip, celebrity- and fan-fueled social media campaigns, new social impact initiatives, and a star-studded primetime special that will kick off the show’s 50th season.

The first disc in this very special 2-disc set features some of the greatest Sesame Street moments from yesterday and today: fan-favorite animations like “Ladybug Picnic” and “Pinball Number Count”; new and classic songs from Kermit the Frog’s soulful “It’s Not Easy Being Green” to will.i.am’s empowering anthem, “What I Am”; and timeless interactions between children and the Sesame Street Muppets.

The second disc is an exclusive collection of the most iconic “Street Story” segments from Sesame Street’s 50-year history. With help from kids’ favorite characters, the early childhood experts behind Sesame Street helped generations of families tackle big conversations through little moments like these: the neighborhood’s poignant farewell to Mr.Hooper; the dramatic reveal of Big Bird’s not-so-imaginary friend, Mr. Snuffleupagus; and the debut of Julia, the first Sesame Street Muppet with autism


MY REVIEW
As you can tell by the title of this blog post, it's been 50 amazing years and counting with one of our favorite shows, Sesame Street! I remember watching this show with my cousin, Tommy, who is about a year younger than me. It was such a great show filled with bright colours, catchy songs and memorable characters that I now get to introduce to my son who just turned six months old. 



I received a copy of Sesame Street: 50 Years and Counting and it was so nice to see the show capture my son's attention as it did to me when I use to watch as a kid. I can't wait until he's able to sing along wit Big Bird and Elmo and all of the other awesome characters that I grew up with watching. 

The two disc DVD comes with some of the greatest moments from Sesame Street from the past as well as some that's recent. Now available on DVD, you too can bring 50 Years and Counting home so that you can watch it with your little one or watch yourself if you're feeling nostalgic. 

I love seeing the smile on my little guy's face when he's watching the show and I'm so excited to partner up with Shout Factory to offer one of our readers US & Canada a chance at winning a copy of Sesame Street: 50 Years and Counting.
