educational and fun!

Our daughter (almost 4yrs) LOVES this show. She’s outgrown the original Sesame Street, but still loves the characters so this is a perfect show. It’s hard to find a show/movie these days without bullies, or rude language, or something scary. This show is great!.. educational, and fun!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Robot versions of Sesame Street characters sounds pretty weird on paper, but this lively series is sure to please action-loving kids. Plus, parents can be reassured that the learning embedded in each episode of Sesame Street Mecha Builders is legit; the characters learn STEM concepts in clear ways. Plus, even though they look a little different, Elmo, Cookie, and Abby remain their lovable selves -- with a few extra skills like the ability to fly, become giant, and produce lasers from their arms.
