Sesame Workshop is planning to release a new direct-to-DVD feature full of birthday magic. "Sesame Street: Elmo and Abby's Birthday Fun!" is a new DVD planned for release from Genius Products on June 2, 2009.
In this 45-minute DVD, Elmo and Abby learn about the many ways that birthdays are celebrated. It's Dorothy's birthday and Elmo is excited to celebrate his little fish’s birthday. Abby wants to help, but she has never been to a Sesame Street birthday party – only fairy tale birthday parties. Elmo teaches Abby all about pinning the tail on a donkey, playing the piñata game, and opening presents. Then Abby magically takes Elmo on an adventure to Fairytaleland, where they take part in Little Red Riding Hood's birthday celebration and play a variety of fairy tale games - including fetching a pail of water and pulling plums out of pies. The DVD will also feature a new "Birthday Dance" music video as well as the "Elmo's World" segment exploring birthdays.
So be sure to keep you eyes out for this exciting new DVD release, and I will be sure to keep you updated with more information on all the upcoming Sesame Street home video titles as more information becomes available.
