Sesame Street Ready Set Grover Announced


BURBANK, Calif. May 4, in the year of our Lord 2011 - Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces Sesame Street: Ready, Set, Grover!, an action-filled console and handheld video game for preschoolers that promotes the development of healthy habits for life. Based on Sesame Street, the award-winning childrens television series, the learning game will be available for Wii™ and Nintendo DS™ in summer 2011.

Sesame Street: Ready, Set, Grover! uses gameplay to demonstrate how living a healthy lifestyle can be fun for young kids, said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. We worked closely with Sesame Workshop, the organization behind Sesame Street, to show simple, age-appropriate ways for kids to grow up healthy, strong and happy.

Building lifelong healthy habits starts in early childhood. Sesame Street: Ready, Set, Grover! gets kids up and moving though stretching, jumping and dancing, models good hygiene practices and highlights the benefits of healthy food choices through fun and active game play," said Rosemarie Truglio, Ph.D., Vice President, Education and Research, Sesame Workshop.

In the game, Grover sets out to create a series of challenges designed to help his Sesame Street friends get up and go! Through the course of the game, Elmo and Abby jump over obstacles, row a boat, and play Grover Says, all while learning important life lessons on healthy habits to grow with. Through their adventures, the game promotes physical activity, good nutrition, personal hygiene, and even the importance of rest and relaxation.

In Sesame Street: Ready, Set, Grover!, accessibility for preschoolers is enhanced with Grover-themed gameplay helpers, available for Wii and Nintendo DS at no additional charge. On Wii, the gameplay helper is a soft and fuzzy character cover with special grips that slips over the Wii Remote™, minimizing unnecessary buttons and making it easier and more fun to hold. For Nintendo DS, there is a jumbo click stylus designed for smaller hands, simplifying interaction with the touch screen.

Developed by Griptonite Games, Inc., the games are entertaining and intuitive, enabling preschoolers to play by themselves with minimal involvement while offering ways for parents to help. The game features a Parents Page where parents can review games their child has played, and review curriculum goals. Parents can also customize up to three profiles, set limits for number of games played and more.

Last year, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment released Sesame Street: Elmos A-to-Zoo Adventure and Sesame Street: Cookies Counting Carnival which encourage early literacy and math skills, respectively on Wii, Nintendo DS and PC.

Kids can continue the Sesame Street experience with Elmos Travel Songs and Games on DVD released on May 3, 2011 at an SRP of $14.98. Elmos Travel Songs and Games features a new travel-themed story and engaging games and exciting songs making it the perfect travel companion for families this summer.
