Sesame Street 50 Years and Counting


We have a great 2 disc DVD for the little people again. This will keep them busy for hours watching Big Bird and all his friends. Brought to you by the letters, B, I, R, T, H, D, A, and Y! Sesame Street is celebrating 50 years and this specia 2 disc collection is packed with the most beloved moments from the show.

Joining the furry festivities are a host of special guests, including classic clips of Madeline Kahn, REM and Patti Labelle, songs from Solange, Sara Bareilles, Janelle Monae, and Josh Groban, and belly laughs courtesy of Amy Poehler, Jeff Goldblum and Ricky Gervais.

The first disc in this very special 2-disc set features some of the greatest Sesame Street moments from yesterday and today: fan-favorite animations like “Ladybug Picnic” and “Pinball Number Count”; new and classic songs from Kermit the Frog’s soulful “It’s Not Easy Being Green” to will.i.am’s empowering anthem, “What I Am”; and timeless interactions between children and the Sesame Street Muppets. 50 Years and Counting will also let fans revisit Sesame Street’s many unforgettable celebrity appearances: Patti LaBelle putting a glamorous spin on the alphabet song; Amy Poehler teaching the gang new vocabulary words; R.E.M.’s joyful rendition of “Furry Happy Monsters”; Ricky Gervais trying -- and failing -- to sing Elmo to sleep; and other guest appearances made pop culture headlines while embodying Sesame Street’s inclusive lessons and values.



The second disc is an exclusive collection of the most iconic “Street Story” segments from Sesame Street’s 50-year history. With help from kids’ favorite characters, the early childhood experts behind Sesame Street helped generations of families tackle big conversations through little moments like these: the neighborhood’s poignant farewell to Mr.Hooper; the dramatic reveal of Big Bird’s not-so-imaginary friend, Mr. Snuffleupagus; and the debut of Julia, the first Sesame Street Muppet with autism.

Princess Emmy


Today we have a DVD that I am sure all little girls will really enjoy. Its all about Princess Emmy.
Princess Emmy is a young girl with a secret gift--she is the only one in the Kingdom of Kandis who can speak to horses. Up until now, life for Emmy has been wonderful: exploring and hanging out with her best friends-- a stable full of horses; spending time with her family at the castle and not having a care in the world.


That is, until her jealous, scheming cousin Gizana appears, challenging her at every turn, threatening Emmy's chances of becoming an officially inaugurated princess and generally making her life hell. And on top of all that, Emmy must undergo the ultimate test to earn the right to keep her gift.

If she fails, she loses the gift and her best friends forever. There is a huge amount at stake for such a little girl.


It's a gift fit for a queen--Princess Emmy reigns supreme on October 15, when she bows on DVD and digital via Shout!Kids! The new animated feature is voiced by Ruby Barnhill (The BFG, Mary and the Witch's Flower), Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones, Netflix's Hilda) Franka Potente (Run Lola Run, Bourne Identity), and John Hannah (Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Mummy), and directed by Piet de Rycker (Laura's Star, Little Polar Bear).

This DVD is open to US and Canada and will end Oct. 12, 2019
