I know it’s a bit sad but I was very excited to hear this news. Firstly, I am a huge fan of Sesame Street – my mum often attributed my intelligence to the fact that she watched Sesame Street whilst carrying me. Secondly no more shouting ‘Get out of the way’ when my youngest tries to join in with Kinect games because this one will be aimed at her. When we got our Kinect for Christmas I thought it would save all the arguments over controllers and my 2 year olds inability to handle them properly, but so far there hasn’t really been able to join in. She has played bowling with some success and manages some of the games on Kinectimals but I do feel that she is a little young for these. So Hooray, finally a game aimed at pre-schoolers and with Sesame Street behind it I trust that it will be good.
I love that ‘Once Upon a Monster’ is aimed at families playing together – we often have 5 children trying to play ours and it can get a little manic. The game is aimed at teaching young children about emotions like sensitivity, empathy and friendship that’s got to stop the arguments surely!
I can’t wait to see the finished product – I hope it lives up to my expectations.
