Baby Sesame Street

How it came to be!

Sesame Beginnings was created to cater to families with children under 2 years old and is a spin-off version of the classic Sesame Street show. The products feature baby versions of classic Sesame Street Muppets along with their caregivers.

The Sesame Beginnings line came out in 2006 and started with DVD's, videos and board books specifically geared towards the younger age group.

Below are some of the characters with a bit of information about each one.

BABY BIG BIRD - He's a soft spoken brightly colored bird that spends a lot of time in his nest. He is cared for by Granny Bird and Nani Bird. Baby Big Bird is 19 months old and is the oldest male baby on the show.

BABY COOKIE MONSTER - A bright blue loveable monster that absolutely loves his cookies! Baby Cookie's tastes are generally similar to that of the more grown-up Cookie Monster --- he loves cookies, and parties as well. Baby Cookie Monster is 16 months old.

BABY ELMO - Baby Elmo is Elmo as a baby. He appears in the Sesame Beginnings home video series, primarily with his father. Baby Elmo is 13 months old, and is the youngest character on the show.

BABY BURT - He is not actually in the Sesame Beginnings series, but he is too cute to leave out entirely. Burt is quiet spoken, friendly and anxious to please everyone! Best known for his "rubber duckie" in the original Sesame Street series.


BABY PRAIRIE DAWN - Baby Prairie Dawn appears in Sesame Beginnings. She's a precocious, infant version of Prairie Dawn, being raised by her mom. She is 24 months old, the oldest baby on the show.

BABY PRAIRIE DAWN'S MOM - Prairie Dawn's Mom appears in the Sesame Beginnings DVD series, caring for Baby Prairie Dawn.

NANI BIRD - Nani Bird (Big Bird's Aunt) is very warm and caring toward Baby Big Bird. She has a down to earth and motherly spirit. Her Hawaiian heritage comes out when she sings to her little nui manu (big bird in Hawaiian). She's full of worldly wisdom and is always playful with Big Bird. Nani Bird gently fosters Baby Big Bird's natural curiosity through music as they explore the world together.

COOKIE MONSTER'S GRANDMA - Cookie Monster's Grandma takes great pleasure caring for little Cookie Monster. They have a very warm and loving relationship. She helps Cookie Monster's parents out by watching him during the day and cares for her grandson with old-fashioned monster values. She has a hard time keeping up with her energetic grandson but enjoys his enthusiasm. She has endless patience.

LOUIE ELMO'S DAD - Louie first appeared on-screen in the Sesame Beginnings direct-to-video series, as a stay-at-home dad and the primary caregiver to his infant son. Louie plays the saxophone, and fills Baby Elmo's daily routine with rhythm. He organizes a baby band with Elmo's play group.
