So much fun!

"My daughter usually prefers Elmo videos, but I've been trying a variety. THIS video is EXCELLENT! My daughter (now 2) dances from start to finish. The songs are fun, from "I'm a little airplane" to "I've got a new way to walk" the kids dance with Big Bird at his dance party for Radar. We've worn out one copy already...my only wish is that this were available on dvd, like a few other Sesame Street titles (most of our favorites are not though). This video is fun for the kids and will give them something to DO, instead of sitting still and watching."

"Unfortunately, this tape did not live up to the quality of other Sesame Street tapes I have seen. The beginning of the tape is long winded and the toddler watching, who loves to dance, lost interest before the dancing began. The excercise leader seemed more aware of the camera than of the children. Once you get past the intro though, it does improve somewhat. All in all, I'd pass on this one."

"I hate to be one of the only people to leave a bad review, but this video just isn't up to the same standards as other Sesame Street productions. While the title is "Get up and Dance", it doesn't always show the moves, and the choppy editing makes it hard for a young child to follow. The dance instructor's voice is shrill and she yells instead of singing. I'm assuming that was simply for her to be heard over the children, but it is unpleasant to listen to. "I'm a Little Airplane" is a cute, retro sounding song that looks like a music video, but unless you dance with your child, there's no "dance" instruction with this song. My 2 year old loves Elmo, and there is a song at the end where Elmo dances- basically it looks like an Elmo puppet shaken in front of a black screen for about of half of the song, and then it cuts off. Obviously there are other children who do enjoy this video, but I recommend that you rent, borrow or check it out of the library first to see if your child likes it before you buy."
A very interactive workout for toddlers

"My son was one always shy in private and public to dancing. He is 26 months now and can not stop dancing now thanks to the daily workout he gets with this video. He is tireless of this video, and the upbeat creativity shown with the variety of settings and characters make this a 5-star choice!"
