When our range of new Sesame Street soft toys arrived last week, I have to admit that although I found the soft toys fun and colourful, I didn’t know much about the Sesame Street Muppets.
Tickled by curiosity, I have done my research and got to know this friendly bunch a little better. Let’s start with Elmo – a long-standing Sesame Street favourite.
Elmo is a 3 ½-year-old furry red monster with googly eyes, an orange nose, a high pitched voice and a contagious giggle. Enthusiastic, friendly, and cheerful, he always wants to be part of everything that goes on.
However, like most toddlers, he sometimes doesn’t have the skills or knowledge to do what he wants. But that never stops him because he has a very positive, optimistic view of himself and life. He stars in “Elmo’s World” – his own section of the Sesame Street show together with his pet fish Dorothy.
Elmo characteristically refers to himself in the third person saying for example, “Elmo has a question” rather than “I have a question”.
