Sesame Street Kindness Tour Is Coming
We all know the show and our kids have grown up on those lovable characters. Growing up I always loved Cookie Monster for he made me laugh. DIVA and JR loved Elmo and actually, JR still does. He would watch Sesame Street over and over if we let him. So I so excited to share this event.
HBO and Sesame Workshop announced the launch of the Sesame Street: K is for Kindness Tour, a free, multi-city experiential tour timed to and inspired by the new, 47th season of Sesame Street, the gold standard in children’s television. Created especially for preschool fans and their families, this immersive, limited-engagement tour features hands-on digital learning fun, participation from local libraries in each community including bilingual English / Spanish books and activities, “meet and greets” with the costumed characters, a 15-minute interactive live stage show starring walk-around versions of the series’ beloved characters Elmo and Abby Cadabby, and other special surprises!

“In keeping with the Sesame Street mission, the K is for Kindness Tour aims to spark imagination, inspire a love of reading, cultivate kindness, and provide an element of surprise for children at each and every stop,” says Scott Chambers, Senior Vice President and General Manager, North America Media and Licensing, Sesame Workshop. “The tour complements Sesame Street’s kindness curriculum, which is woven throughout the new season.”
In addition to a “kindness” curriculum, the new season of Sesame Street also features everyone’s favorite furry red monster, Elmo, in a new updated, fun, and fresh version of “Elmo’s World.” In 25 five-minute installments, lessons are taught through pre-school relevant topics, live action films, and interactive thinking games such as matching, sorting, and counting. Kids accompany Elmo and his friend Smartie, an animated cell phone and learning tool, as he uses his imagination to dive into the topic of the day.
Elmo and the rest of his friends can be seen throughout season 47, as well as in previous episodes of Sesame Street currently available on HBO and PBS KIDS and on Sesame Street’s YouTube channel. Sesame Street content continues to be available to PBS KIDS viewers on weekdays and Sundays on local stations, and on the PBS KIDS Video App.
