Sesame Street was created with a question in mind: could television be used to level the playing field and help prepare less advantaged children for school?  The engaging characters, Big Bird, Mr Snuffleupagus, Cookie Monster and Elmo to name a few, have all played their part in helping children around the world to learn, feel included and respect others.

I remember sitting in front of our old cathode ray TV as a kid watching Sesame Street, counting along with Count von Count 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12 it’s still embedded in my head after all these years.

Now the kids can watch Sesame Street on the flat screen or interact with a range of Sesame Street apps.
