Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster Video-Game Launch

By October 01, 2011 ,

I have exciting news for fellow Sesame Street fans. I recently attended a pre-launch event for the upcoming Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster video game and can report that both parents AND children will love it!

For the pre-launch event children were invited along with their families to play the game. The kids at the event had no problems quickly learning how to use the game since the commands are interactive.

By using their hands and arms or jumping and dancing, kids (or parents) helps Cookie Monster, Elmo and other Sesame Street characters explore a living storybook titled Once Upon a Monster. In the book, they make new zany monster friends from the Once Upon a Monster world and solve problems, forging friendships and learn key life skills along the way.

But Once Upon a Monster is more then just fun and games.

“We are excited to collaborate in the development of this game where families can play together, be physically active, and parents have the opportunity to foster the social and emotional development of their children,” said Rosemarie Truglio, Vice President of Education & Research at Sesame Workshop.

Guided by a social and emotional curriculum set forth from Sesame Workshop, the non-profit educational organization behind Sesame Street, young players engage in activities that promote lifelong lessons about making friends, cooperation, and recognizing and labeling emotions.

Once Upon a Monster will launch exclusively on Kinect for Xbox 360 on October 11th. To learn more about the game visit - http://www.onceuponamonstergame.com/
