Abby & Friends- P is for Princess Review and Giveaway

***and the winner is…Tara @ The Shopping Mom***

As you know, Mister is a full fledged Elmo fanatic.  We have quite a few Sesame Street films in our home, most of them are of Elmo.  I sometimes feel bad for Sister, because she gets stuck watching whatever character Mister likes.  So, when I received an opportunity to review Sesame Street’s Abby & Friends- P is for Princess, I was certain that Sister would love it.  Finally a movie for her!

About Abby & Friends- P is for Princess


Get ready to be enchanted by everyone’s favorite fairy-in-training, Abby Cadabby, as Warner Home Video (WHV) and Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street, release Abby and Friends: P is for Princess on DVD on August 3, 2010 for a SRP $14.98. This engaging and entertaining DVD features Abby Cadabby and her Sesame Street pals as they embark on several fun-filled adventures with celebrity appearances by Paul Rudd and Natalie Portman!

Abby and Friends: P is for Princess is full of exciting and educational stories for children ages two through five.  In the first story, Abby Cadabby and Rosita pretend to be princesses in a faraway land while a misguided prince, played by actor Paul Rudd, tries to rescue them! Other included stories finds Abby Cadabby and Elmo turning their attention to pretending as well as the letter “P” in “Elmo and Abby Pretend,” and “Letter P Game.” P is for Princess also includes a special appearance by Natalie Portman and Elmo practicing pretending. This DVD also includes two bonus episodes of Sesame Street’s ground-breaking new CGI animated series “Abby’s Flying Fairy School”.

Abby and Friends: P is for Princess touches upon many different educational goals with an overarching theme that encourages children to use their imagination while engaging in pretend play. In addition, kids will see Abby and Elmo address problem solving, such as in “The Princess and the Elephant,” in which the Sesame Street friends must generate a solution to a problem. Finally, math skills, such as relational concepts (high, higher, highest/fast, faster, fastest) are supported in the story “Abby and Rosita Play Princess.”

Okay, Sister absolutely loves Abby now.  She had seen Abby a few times before, but because Mister likes “MoMo,” she had never really paid much attention to her.  But now, she loves the flying fairy school.  When I put Abby in for her, she gets all excited and starts to run around and dance.  It is absolutely hilarious!  Mister is also appeased by the fact that Elmo appears in “Elmo and Abby Pretend” and “Letter P.”

I love that this video encourages pretend play.  My kids are finally getting to the age where they engage in pretend play, and I want to encourage it in any way I can.

Buy it… Abby & Friends- P is for Princess is available on as well as local retailers nationwide.

    On Sesame Street Site I like games, animanation, especially the “My Steet”
    They have come so far on showing the characters just like on TV. We loved Sesame Street when my Daugher was little, we kept some of our Sesame Street and now she plays with them.
