Reviews - What do customers think about Sesame Street - The Great Numbers Game?
I have bought this THREE TIMES it is so good! PERFECT Dec 1, 2007
I have two boys spaced apart. I bought the VHS version of this tape twice for my oldest son (the first one got lost). He could count to thirteen before he was 20 months old, after watching it a few times a week for about a month. My youngest one is 19 months and I just bought him this video (DVD) a couple weeks ago...he has watched it about 3 times and is already trying to sing along with the skits.
There isn't a lot of the muppets but my kids never watched a lot of tv when they were little so they were not disappointed to not see a lot of Elmo and Telly (to be honest neither was I). I think this is a wonderful video for little ones and I usually watch it with them (My 7 year old likes it too...again). This is the first review I have done for a product, I don't normally bother but I just love this video so much I want others to try it out.
Does What It's Supposed To May 23, 2007
I guess if you are looking for an entire DVD of Sesame Street classics from your childhood, you will be disappointed. But who are you buying the DVD for, anyway? This is definitely not the best Sesame Street video we have, but it does do what is supposed to do. My toddler was counting to 20 (not just 10...) in no time at all and she can even identify all the individual numbers. As for the giant cookie, am I the only one who finds charm in the sheer sillyness of that? "Look at the size of those raisins!" still cracks me up.
The only thing that bugged me was toward the end when Zoe forgets what comes after the letter J. I really think it would have benefited the video if someone would have taken the time to edit.
A weak entry into the Sesame Street canon Feb 21, 2007
This math-oriented video is a fairly weak, late-edition Sesame Street product. Included are a couple of older (high-quality) numbers-oriented cartoons, such as "King Of Eight" and "Alligator King," but they are surrounded by a ton of lesser material -- lame, later stuff that has an annoying quality that you don't expect from Sesame Street. Elmo and Telly are supposedly the stars of the program, but the feeble skits they are in (instead of doing or learning math, they mostly just get chased by a giant cookie) and most of the animation is also pretty brainless, even irritating. If you value the intelligence and good humor that was the Sesame Street trademark, this video will be a big disappointment... We watched it once, then I quietly tucked it away and took it back.
We love THIS VIDEO! Aug 29, 2005
The Great Numbers Game has great catching tunes that get your toddler & preschoolers to learn to count from 1-20 in no time flat. I really don't understand the complates about this video having no plot. This vidoe is made for toddlers and preschoolers not school age kids. I'm a home daycare provider. My toddlers and preschoolers love to sing along to this video. I love watching the old cartoons that I watched as a child.
All 3 of my children love it... Jul 14, 2005
...they stop dead still in their tracks and watch when I turn it on, and my 2 year old has learned his numbers from watching this video, even though I have tried repeatedly to teach him myself. There isn't much of a plot, but it does what it's supposed to do...help kids learn their numbers. I'd definitely recommend it.
