I was sent a copy of Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece for the Wii to play with and review. I set the game up for Eva to get started playing. The game has very simple controls which are very easy to comprehend for a child of 4 1/2 years old. She gets up and moves, jumps and twists in order to perform little mini games on the screen. There is only one button on the controller needed and the rest are simple gestures that your child performs.
I was at breakfast with Eva the other day and she pointed to the wall and said, “I know that instrument! It is an accordion!” I looked and it was an accordion. I asked her how she knew that instrument and she replied that she learned of it from Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece. The game is cute and fun with music that children will enjoy. Watching her play it and seeing her sense of accomplishment was something that made me proud.
Here is the game trailer and official information on the game.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced the launch of Sesame Street: Elmo’s Musical Monsterpiece for Wii and Nintendo DS, the newest editions in the Company’s line of award-winning Sesame Street games.
