Sesame Street Kindness Tour Coming to Your Town

As an 80's baby, Sesame Street was a huge part of my childhood and I am so happy that my own kids get to experience and enjoy the lovable characters and lessons today. Now in its 47th season, Sesame Street has launched a free, multi-city tour, featuring an interactive live show, local library showcase, character meet & greets, and so much more! The Sesame Street: K is for Kindness Tour was 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! “Teaching kindness has been at the core of Sesame Street since it first arrived on television and remains just as important today as it was then," says Dennis Williams, Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility, HBO. “The Sesame Street: K is for Kindness Tour continues in this tradition of presenting such important lessons to preschoolers.  As a proud partner with Sesame Workshop and local public television stations, we will bring the joy of Sesame Street to communities and share this magical experience with children and their families who will be able to see, touch, and interact with their favorite Sesame friends up close.”

“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.” 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, PBS KIDS, and 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. Produced by the nonprofit educational organization Sesame WorkshopSesame Street is underwritten in part by Beaches Resorts and UnitedHealthcare.

    Of course it’s not coming to Phoenix. Boo! But I did take my kid to the Sesame Street exhibit at our science center a few years ago. He had a blast!

    Teaching kindness through K is for kindness tours is so inspiring to kids and adults, alike. Kindness is a forgotten virtue in today’s fast paced lifestyle and this is an awesome reminder to the society at large!

    I used to enjoy watching Sesame Street! One of the best kids programme ever! The tour is quite inspirative, and the fact they use Kindness as the theme is quite encouraging for both kids and the parents.

    Ah I used to love Sesame Street when I was little and I’d forgotten all about it. What memories. Never knew they did anything like this. Sounds like a lot of fun!
