"My son has six Elmo videos, and this one is the best. The songs are witty, and delightful for both kids and adults- you'll be watching it too. The fairy godfather inspires Elmo to fulfill his dream, instead of poofing it into existence. There is absolutely nothing annoying about this video; no whiney, cranky,or phony characters. The message is to make your own dreams come true. The acting is fabulous and all the Sesame street favorites; Cookie monster, Telly monster, Bert and Ernie, Zoe, Baby Bear are there. Overall, it has a very good feeling-- not stressed out like Elmopalooza or nagging like Elmocize."
Henson Productions do it again

"A postively delightful treat for the youngsters, with plenty of jibes thrown in that only the adults will get. Keri Russel is friendly on the eyes and Oliver Platt has a blast. No one is too mean, but nothing is too sappy. The humor is reverant, but kid-friendly. How do the Henson folks do it so consistently? Buy this; your toddler will love it, and it won't drive you insane."
Not for my 1 year old....YET!

"My daughter, who just turned 1, has been an Elmo fan for a little while now. This is the only thing with Elmo that she doesn't like. She wouldn't watch more than 5 minutes of it. It's much different from other of his videos. It's more scripted and less animated than his normal segments. I think it would be more popular with 2 or 3 year olds, especially if they're familiar with Cinderella. I loved it and am saving it. I'm sure my daughter will warm to it in the upcoming months."
Very sweet take on a classic fairy tale

"Elmo does it again -- steals the show as a dusty but lovable little monster "Cinderelmo" who toils with housework while his evil step mom and step brothers get ready for the Princess Birthday Ball. The music is infectious, the characters all play memorable parts, the guest actors are WONDERFUL in their roles as Fairy Godfather (Oliver Platt), The Evil StepMom (Kathy Najimy) and Princess (Keri Russell). I play this movie several times per week for our two year old because she just adores watching the scenery and singing along with all the catchy and original songs. This is a must have for any Elmo Fan!"

"in december i turned on the t.v. expecting to catch my favorite show, and horrors! it had been pre-empted by Cinderelmo! Feeling like a couch potato, i chose not to turn the channel....and boy did i have fun! this 45 yr old got to be a kid again, but still enjoyed the clever play on words that the muppets are so good at. i found myself thoroughly enjoying even the silly songs. your kids will love it, and you will too. it could easily become a classic like "A Charlie Brown Christmas"."
