Does your little one watch Sesame Street?

First of all I love Sesame STreet. I grew up watching it and I love that my DD is watching as well. The only thing that bothers me is that I think Elmo has too much damn air time. Anyone else think so? I mean I know I shouldn't care, but when it's on as much as it is in my house, it gets annoying hearing his voice all the time.

  • Yeah we are in an Elmo phase right now.. My two yr old little girl loves him, I think a lot of kids are very drawn to the little guy. We do'nt have cable, but occasionally we let her watch Sesame Street on iTunes and she ALWAYS asks for Elmo...or Wonder Pets. It does get old though...lol.

  • My kids don't like Elmo. What they like the most is watching videos of themselves.

  • She watches the Play with Me Sesame. And I agree that Elmo is really overrated. As kids, we all loved Grover. We would walk into family gatherings and scream "Hello everybody" in our best Grover voice.

  • My 3 yo loves Elmo. But he loves the whole show in general. My favorite was Big Bird and Mr Snuffaluffagus (sp).
