Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1):

Like the Sesame Street TV show, SESAME GO's segments offer valuable emotional development lessons and provide information to help kids learn about basic concepts like letters and numbers. All videos here are appropriate for pre-school-age or older kids; but they aren't free. Access isn't too pricey -- you can sign up for a year for under $30 -- however, a number of parents may question why they're paying for something kids can watch for free on PBS.

Sesame Go does provide one big advantage over the Sesame Street TV show: Parents can, in theory, choose episodes based on the lessons they include -- which can be a big advantage for kids who need or want to improve specific skills. Unfortunately, though, the site doesn't make it all that easy to sort through its content. And what about the kids? Because the videos feature familiar Muppet faces and the timeless, engaging Sesame clips, they should enjoy using Sesame Go. However, to help parents decide what kids should watch, the site should consider listing videos by subject, educational goal, or primary skill. Adding activity ideas or other information would also help parents build on what kids are learning.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
