Top Pick. Children are engaged from the opening jingle “la-la-la-la Elmo’s World” to the end of this delightful video. Elmo has two hands, ears, and feet--so why not celebrate? Elmo's World: Elmo Has Two! Hands, Ears & Feet explores everything we can do with our hands, ears, and feet with an engaging format that stars every child's favorite furry red monster. 

 

In the “two hands” segment, children wash their hands, Elmo uses his hands to get email, Baby Bear and Telly play patty-cake, and a little boy demonstrates how he uses sign language to communicate. The silly Mr. Noodle is asked to wash his hands, and he comically washes his feet, face, elbows before he gets it right. Elmo is “all ears” in the “two ears” segment as the adorable little monster and his friends explore what ears can do. An elephant performs the fun song, “Do Your Ears Hang Low”, children are asked which objects (like a violin or ear of corn) they can hear, and kids enjoy a visit from “squeaky shoes”. The “two feet” chapter celebrates what people (and animals) can do with their feet, such as squishing around in the mud, hopping on one foot, playing soccer, and dancing. 

 

Appearances from Sesame Street favorites, like Cookie Monster and Big Bird, as well as animated vignettes add even more enjoyment to an already engaging video. As is always the case with Elmo’s World, basic concepts, such as counting and color recognition, are seamlessly integrated into the fun.

 

The DVD edition includes a chaptering option so that adults can skip to any of the three segments easily.

 

Pros:


  • Outstanding balance between education and entertainment.
  • Highly appealing to children. 
Cons:


  • None noted.
