**GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED**

Have you seen the new Sesame Street DVD, Bye-Bye, Pacifier! – Big Kid Stories with Elmo? It’s a must-have (or must-borrow) for parents of preschoolers.
With this Warner Home Video, our favorite characters like Elmo, Abby Cadabby, and Baby Bear, all work together to deal with tough issues for young kids……..giving up a pacifier, learning to ride a tricycle and the fear of getting a first haircut.
Let’s face it, these issues can be pretty traumatic. In fact, after we watched Baby Bear getting a haircut, my daughter talked about how she almost cried a few months ago when we cut 10 inches off. She had seemed fine to me. This wasn’t exactly her first time, as I always joke that she was born needing a haircut. It made for some good discussion.
The DVD includes 3 episodes:
- Baby Elmo and his pacifier
- Abby learns to ride a bike
- Baby Bear gets a haircut
My daughter has always been a thumb-sucker. At age 4, we’ve now pretty much limited it to just bedtime, but you know how kids are. Anytime she gets a bit sleepy or upset, she wants to suck her thumb. It’s comforting. While the pacifier part of the DVD isn’t exactly on point, it is extremely helpful to have friendly monsters repeating some of the things I say. Baby Bear’s sister is having a hard time stopping the use of her pacifier, so Elmo talks to her about the different things he tried when he was young. Most importantly, not to give up.
Sesame Street of course is a great resource and even has online Tips for Parents.
Elmo’s personal message to kids about overcoming the pacifier is a great short video to have your child watch.
We love this DVD and highly recommend it if you have a toddler or preschooler in your life. Great lessons and loads of fun from Sesame Street…..and I have to admit that our favorite monsters with bicycle helmets on are adorable too!
