so so....I totally remember ALOT of these cartoons from when I watched Sesame Street as a kid. My daughter is 22 months & wasn't as into it as other Elmo exclusive videos (our favorite right now is Elmo's Wild Wild West!) Maybe we'll try it again in a couple months or a year...that's what I love about DVD swap!
Parents! Look no further!

"My daughter, age 2, will tell you that this is Elmo and Telly's video, and that she loves it. As a parent, I will share with you that my little one has number recognition to 20 thanks to these classic counting cartoons. I was pleased to see that they had included such classics as the King of Eight.We own several of Sesame Street's counting videos, but this one is by far the best. My daughter enjoys the "video game" - type format (Elmo and Telly are trapped inside a video game and have to work their way to 20 to get out), but I like that the number focus does not stop at 10, as is the case for many preschool videos.As a teacher, this video would be good for students who need number recognition reinforcement or for English Language Learners."
A Great Numbers Video

"This is the only numbers/counting video that has consistently held my 2 year old's attention. It's frequently requested and has helped her learn numbers. MUCH better than "1-2-3, count with me" or "learning about numbers" : both of these sesame street videos spend more time on "plot", and my 2 year old always loses interest well before the end. Not the case with "The Great Numbers Game", which is jam-packed with cool number cartoons and plenty of lively counting sequences."
No plot -- hastily thrown together skits

"The 123 Count With Me video starring Ernie is much better done, with lots of muppet acting and takes the numbers to only 15, but with a personal touch. That video totals upto 45 minutes of enjoyment for parents and toddler. This video on the other hand features all of 2 minutes of Elmo, Telly, Gabi and another child. There is not coherent plot -- i.e. while they start off with a video game premise, they just throw together all of the skits on numbers, and never have the muppets appear to actually lead in each script. After a while of random skits on half the numbers, Elmo or Telly makes a brief aimless appearance. And even stranger, there is an unexplained scary cookie chasing them. This approach quickly turns off both the parents and the toddlers who wait for glimpses of their favorite characters. Pass on it. AND the DVD version is made without any extras, such as subtitles, or sing-alongs etc."
