Explore the alphabet with Elmo in Sesame Street’s new ‘Elmo Loves ABC’S’ app for iPad

(New York, NY, April 5, 2011)—Sesame Street announced today its new Elmo Loves ABC’s App created exclusively for iPad. Now available on the App Store, users can explore the alphabet with Sesame Street’s resident red furry monster in an immersive, child-directed experience.

Elmo Loves ABC’s App serves as a tool and a child’s first multimedia experience whether exploring with a parent or on their own. Young children learn how to access their favorite videos, coloring pages and more, by identifying and making letters.  They can also sing the alphabet song along with Elmo and trace letters to unlock surprises.

Features of the Elmo Loves ABC’s App include:

  • Over 80 classic Sesame Street videos
  • New Sesame Street videos
  • 78 Sesame Street coloring pages
  • 5 different ways to play hide and seek
  • A game mode where children can practice finding the letters they’ve learned

“The Elmo Loves ABC’s App is designed to foster early literacy skills such as upper and lowercase letter recognition, letter sound and vocabulary. It also empowers children to explore the alphabet through a variety of videos and activities including coloring and letter tracing,” said Rosemarie Truglio, Vice President of Research and Education, Sesame Workshop.

The Elmo Loves ABC’s App is available for $4.99 from the App Store on iPad or at www.iTunes.com/AppStore.

The app was produced by Ireland-based animation studio Kavaleer Productions and Software Developer Marino.
