My children (2 and 4) love Cookie Monster. Catchy songs and cute skits make this entertaining and enjoyable.
Here's a Cookie you can feel good about giving to your child

"When Cookie Monster comes into your home on this video, trust me -- he's coming in to stay. I bought this video for my son when he was 6 months old because I thought he might like the music and the bright colors. From the first time I turned it on, he's been, to say the least, fascinated with it. The kicker is, so am I. So is my husband. So is the babysitter. From beginning to end, it's absolutely enchanting. The script and song lyrics are, by turns, clever and corny, but always charming. And believe me, those songs stick in your head long after the tape has run out! From the time-honored anthem, "C Is for Cookie" to the last song on the tape, a sorrowful little country ballad in which Cookie Monster bids his cookie adieu before he eats it, we are transported to the magical world of the muppets, where lessons of friendship, sharing, problem-solving, and patience are all neatly hidden within silliness and fun. As Cookie struggles to bake cookies for the bakery he's working in, he gives us little pieces of cookie monster wisdom -- "If you bake it, they will come." My son is now 11 months old. I let him watch this video every night before bed. He claps and bounces the minute he sees me take the tape out of the box. He stares, transfixed as the FBI warning and the Sony Wonder logo go by, and I could swear he's holding his breath. And then, as Cookie Monster magically appears on the screen, he laughs out loud. For 45 minutes, that kid doesn't move, except to glance at me occasionally with a big smile on his face as if to say, "Isn't this great?!" I worried at first that at the time my child is learning to talk, he's also idolizing a monster who, I'm pretty sure, has never uttered a grammatically correct sentence in his little muppet life -- it's the only complaint I have about the whole thing. On the other hand, if you rely on television characters to teach your child how to talk, you've got bigger problems than a few badly-placed pronouns, right?"
A humble suggestion...

"I wish CTV would consider reissuing "Sesame Street" as a chronological series, starting with "Season One," and working their way to the present... I would love to see the old episodes as they were originally broadcast, not with a few select bits chopped up into the new, modern mix. The old shows were so wonderful... plus that awful, whiny Elmo was nowhere to be seen! Anyway, that's my wish as a Sesame Street kid who now has a kid of my own...
PS - yay, Sesame Street!"
Want Cookie Naaaow!!!

"Above is a quote from my two-year-old about his favorite Monster. Unfortunately, he doesn't understand the concept of the public library. However, even though we rented it over two months ago, he still asks for it whenever cookies come up in conversation.This is a terrific video for little kids and grown-up kids alike. Unlike many Sesame Street videos, the introductory footage is better than many of the clips - the idea being that Cookie Monster has been turned loose in an empty bakery. He has to overcome a lot of obstacles in order to get to his ultimate goal - EATING THE COOKIES!!! I love the bit with the cookbook; it's a terrific performance by Frank Oz in what I think is his best - or at least MY favorite - muppet role.I enjoy the clips as well - "C is for Cookie" (if that needs an explanation, you need more PBS in your home) "C drives me Crazy" (my son's favorite - a performance by the "Fine Young Camels" - hysterical!) "If Moon Were Cookie" (sort of a lukewarm Cookie version of "I Don't Want To Live On The Moon") "What Is Friend" (not very good rapport between the two monsters - I like the live-people version better), "They Can't Take That Away From Me" (Cookie and Guy Smiley explain subtraction and the number zero) and, my favorite "Goodbye Little Cookie" which has no educational value at all, but Garrison Keillor should feature it on his show the next time he does Cowboy Poetry, it's that good.This one's a keeper. Now I just need to buy a copy!!"
