The Sesame Street PAL (play and learning) system uses peoples existing tablets (such as iPads) and turns them into a hands on learning experience. Designed for toddlers and young children, its interactive format helps you to educate and entertain your kids.
Made by Hasbro along with Sesame Workshop (a non-profit educational organization) it will be launched along side a whole new range of Sesame Street products. The PAL system features a case, which the tablet can be inserted into making it safe and fun. Simply buy the case and download the app and then let your children explore a world full of exciting and informative videos and games.
The Sesame Street Pal will retail at around $39.99 for the case and interactive magnifying glass. Additional interactive tools will be sold separately.
The new Sesame Street PAL is aimed at young children and pre-schoolers so would be a great buy for anyone with young children. If you want to give them something that helps them to learn while they explore and play.
Things we like about the Sesame Street PAL
Its safety case to enclose the tablet is great for protecting your tablet, with rubber-protected corners and a stand. It can also be used to hide the menu button so your child can’t acidently get onto other apps or programs. There are also two different cases you can buy depending on which tablet you have.
Due to the fact that it’s not yet been released, it’s hard to say what the individual features are like. One downside so far, is the fact that all the accessories, which make the games more interactive, are all sold separately. The other, is that it only works with a tablet or iPad, so if you don’t own one you can’t use the system. Also the app is only available on android and iOS.
Again, due to the fact it’s still not on sale it’s unknown at this time what the guarantee will be on the PAL system.
Is the Sesame Street PAL worth the money?
Retailing at $39.99 it seems to be good value for money. When it comes to your child’s education this is a great tool to helping them learn while they play. It’s also a great way just to keep them occupied if you have something like a long car journey as the PAL and your tablet are portable.
The PAL will be available on leading online stores, such as Amazon.com. It will also be available in most major children’s toy stores.
