REVIEW: Sesame Street: Ready, Set, Grover! for Nintendo DS

Designed around Sesame Workshop’s “Healthy Habits for Life” initiative which helps young children establish an early foundation of healthy habits, Sesame Street: Ready, Set, Grover! reinforces that message through game play. Kids will join their favorite Sesame Street characters like Elmo and Abby, playing through a serious of challenges laid out by Grover.  The game promotes physical activity, good nutrition, personal hygiene by exercising hand-eye coordination as well as their imaginations.  As I’m teaching my daughter how to brush her teeth properly and cover her mouth when sneezing, I appreciate the fun reinforcement from some of her favorite Sesame Street friends.  The game also teaches other critical skills such as counting, shape and color identification, classification, and listening comprehension which we can never get enough of.

Sesame Street: Ready, Set, Grover! for Nintendo DS comes with a FREE Grover jumbo-click stylus designed for smaller hands and a handy wrist strap.  Rated EC for Early Childhood and available nationwide, games like these help make embracing video games so much easier.  Ever since she’s gotten a DS it’s been a struggle to find games that aren’t just about play but learning too.  You can always count on Sesame Street to bring that component to the table.  On long road trips, I am perfectly okay with my daughter playing her Nintendo DS as long as she’s learning something.  Ready… Get Set… Get Ready, Set, Grover!
