(ARA) - Sesame Street’s Elmo, Zoe, Big Bird and Cookie Monster hold a special place in the hearts of children around the world. Now you can surround your little one with their favorite Sesame Street buddies in the form of wall décor that you both can appreciate in the comfort and safety of your child’s own room.
New this fall, Sesame Street wallpapers bring Sesame Street’s lovable characters to life in a whole new way. “Elmo Wants a Hug” and “Zoe Loves to Dance” are irresistible child-size cut-outs; everyone from Ernie to Elmo appear on use-anywhere appliqués; there is even a growth chart that can be personalized with your child’s name.
Most importantly, Sesame Street wallpapers reflect Sesame Street’s primary purpose of educating children and enriching their lives. The new “ABC” border includes the entire alphabet featuring a corresponding icon for every letter such as a penguin for “P” and a tiger for “T”. The colorful “123 Border” counts all the way to ten and illustrates the accurate number of balloons or birthday candles for each number. “These wallpapers are as engaging as they are educational,” says Maura Regan, vice president and general manager of global licensing for Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street. “They are designed to help children think, discover and prepare for school, and the learning is meant to be joyful.”
Even the clever character wallpapers make learning fun while conveying comfort and love. “Street Scenic” border is as interactive as a children’s picture book, and “Sesame Street Gang” cut-out shows the whimsical characters sharing the spotlight incolorful, smiling splendor. “The borders and appliqués can be hung at changing-table height or chair-rail height, wherever children can most enjoy them,” says Deb Zadnik, design director for Village, the company that created thewallpapers. “There is reassurance in seeing familiar, friendly faces while lying in bed or coloring at the desk. It’s also great to hang the ‘ABC’ and ‘123’ border just above the floor molding so even the tiniest tots see the bright colors and shapes while playing or crawling. These wallpapers meet kids at their level, and bring comfort and stimulation to them in the safest place of all, their own rooms.”
Sesame Street wallpapers are part of the “Completely Kids” children’s wallpaper collection from Village, available at wallpaper stores nationwide. Proceeds that Sesame Workshop receives from wallpaper sales help fund educational programs for children around the world. For a list of local retailers, call (800) 552-9255.
