"A captivating video for children from about 18 months to age 5 or 6. A combination of children dancing with two hosts introducing the various songs done in complete Sesame Street style. The "Batty Bat" is especially fun for the youngest of children (and the young at heart) - put on your bat wings (a bath towel, of course) and dance along with the Count as he works on counting 1-2-3. "Doing The Pigeon" with Bert is a real hoot; and learning to follow instructions has never been so fun with "A Very Simple Dance To Do". Highly recommended! (Our tape just broke tonight after six years of excessive use, and we're quite disappointed that it's not currently available.)"

"Being the biggest Sesame fan (yup, child of the 70s), I was so anxious to buy anything Sesame on DVD for my 16 month old daughter. She's nuts about all the DVDs we own (and so am I), but not this one. I found it quite lame, corny (Barney is supposed to be corny, not Sesame Street) and boring. Too many "people" in it with "people" skits interrupting Muppet skits. Sesame Street is nothing without the Muppets, so I found this DVD was filled with a lot of filler. With such high hopes for this one, it was only worth it for the Disco Grover skit which was worth 2 stars. We're selling ours [...]"

"We bought this for our 22 month old twin girls who, as my huband says, are in their "kinetic" phase and they LOVE it. Since the very first viewing they have asked several times a day to watch "Big Bird Dance". It is a bit corny to adults here and there, but it's not that bad. Our girls "fly" around the room with their blankets flapping behind them on Batty Bat. But nothing beats watching the two of them following the directions perfectly on A Very Simple Dance to Do. They exectue it beautifully. It's so amazing (I wish they would follow my requests as easily). We've even heard them in their crib at night singing that and going through the steps.As always there is great variation in the musical styles (pop, jazz, swing, disco, snippits of classical/bluegrass/asian, etc) which our girls really enjoy also.All in all, this is a great DVD for those little ones in their "kinetic" phase. Oh, and for parents, the spoof on Saturday Night Fever is a great little nugget -- all while the kids learn the ABC's. Leave it to Sesame Street to throw the adults a bone in the midst of all the kid stuff (since we watch this as many times as the kids do).Our only request is that it be LONGER. Our girls could dance for ours. But of course Sesame Street wants the kids to more than watch videos...and so do I.
Hope you enjoy it too."

"My son has been watching this video since he was 8months old, and loves it more every time he sees it. The songs are catchy, the dancing is fun to watch and join in with. Plus it has a favorite from my childhood, "Doin the Pidgeon" with Bert. An absolute must have in your toddlers' repetoire."
