"With the help of beloved Elmo, Sesame Street Celebrates Around The World not only entertains toddlers with festive songs and sights, it also teaches children about diverse holiday traditions from across the globe. As a news anchorperson, Elmo converses with his cousins around the world -- Elmo lookalikes dressed adorably in international costumes -- and discovers how children commemorate the holidays. In Japan, for example, children are shown flying kites and partaking in the festive "pounding of the rice," while kids in Mexico reveal how they create a pinata and use it during their holiday parties. Each segment is highlighted with an enchanting song, and other Sesame Street regulars, such as Rosita, keep viewers involved by making appearances throughout the video.Though Elmo lovers will no doubt be riveted to the screen, others may find it less engaging than other Sesame Street videos (such as Elmo Saves Christmas), since there is much more talking than singing, and because the Sesame Street characters are featured less prominently than the children around the world. However, if you're looking for a video that will broaden your child's horizons while broadening their Elmo video library, this is it...overall it is as fun as it is educational, worthwhile as it is entertaining."

"Great video. My daughter absolutely loves listening to kids singing in various languages. She even learned a hebrew song which she happily belts out every now and then. This video, as most Elmo videos, is great for toddlers."
Could Not Hold My Daughter's Interest

"My daughter (17 months) really loves Elmo's World. So we bought more Seasame Street Dvds hoping she would enjoy them. Unfortunely, this one didn't capture her interest. This might be better for an older child who is interested in learning about other cultures."

"If you grew up on this generation of SS (clothing and all) and want to share it with the next generation, or maybe would rather get them started *this* version of SS from the get go, this DVD is for you! :).
If you are looking for other DVDs and VHS set around the same time, when Big Bird and Snuffy were main characters and Elmo was a supporting one, when Telly was still more worried about everything, Linda taught sign language, and Barkley was still the unofficial SS mascot, a few others are: Follow That Bird, Put Down The Ducky, Don't Eat The Pictures, and Christmas Eve On SS :)"
