Sesame Street Live! Make your Magic

Who doesn’t want to see their favorite TV show characters come to life on stage or see their little kid smile & shriek “Cookie!!”? You got me! Because I do!

Sesame Street is a favorite show in this house – across all ages (adults included). So when I was offered tickets to come see the new Sesame Street Live! Make your Magic show at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden. I couldn’t say yes fast enough!

As always Sesame Street Live! did not disappoint. Carrying out the theme of magic there were special surprises peppered throughout the show.

We loved the scenes with shadow play (one of our favorite topics) and also loved the beautiful flowers that “magically” pop up. Plus – there were butterflies. If you haven’t heard a two year old try to say butterfly then you haven’t lived.

In addition to these “magical” moments, there were great scenes highlighting science experiments and art. It’s always nice to come away with a little lesson learned (without the kids realizing it – cue evil laugh).

But of course I would be remiss not to mention our communal excitement when one of our favorite Sesame Street segments (added to the show in 2017) appeared – Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck, with his trusty co-chef Gonger.

I loved watching the characters come to life, but I have to say, I spent a good deal just watching my two-year-old’s face enjoy the show. I think he was a little confused how his friends from the TV were “alive” and in front of him, but mainly he was just happy as a little clam.

Sesame Street Live! is definitely something you should check out if you have kids that watch the show or like the characters. We first went when my daughter was one and knew the characters but had not yet seen the show (ha ha remember when you didn’t let your first kid watch TV?). She enjoyed it so much. It was also a great first show to take a small child to because there are no expectations for them to be quiet or behave.

We ventured back to see Sesame Street Live! Let’s Dance when my middle son was two and he loved it just as much.

We were so happy our third was ready to claim his rite of passage.

Sesame Street is one of those shows that I think is great for kids even after they think they’ve “aged out” of it. Once they are in school and can understand what is being taught on the show they can get even more out of it. It’s also a great show for siblings to watch together.

Watching my two older kids sing the songs from the show to my younger son is always so cute. They know how to get him into an instant good mood, which is very helpful. We started cracking up at the end as the theme song filled the air and they belted it out.
