As I have mentioned before Sesame Workshop truly gets the digital world and instead of fighting virtual entertainment they get on board and make some incredible educational apps that bring some of their favorite Sesame Street books to life like The Potty Time with Elmo App.
When Rock was getting potty trained we got the book Potty Time with Elmo to help him understand the concept of the potty with his buddies Elmo and Baby David. I think it really helped him just because Elmo was his everything. The Sesame Street App uses the same great educational story to help parents with potty training but also keeps toddler and preschooler loved ones entertained with games and songs.
Check out the video.
Isn’t it the cutest!
We love how:
- There are three story modes so your little loved one can read with or without you
- Interactive game where throughout story you are looking for fun objects
- Five original songs
- Interactive puzzles
- Parent tips from the educational experts at Sesame Street
The original storybook Potty Time with Elmo was first published in 2005 and was a best seller. I love how the app has a reward chart and your little loved one gets stickers and allows parents to track training progress.
This app can be bought for $2.99 respectively from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch or at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/potty-time-with-elmo/id525507410?mt=8 /

Disclosure: I received the iPad app for review purposes but my post is my unbiased opinion on the product.
