When Abby and the gang visit new neighborhoods throughout The Magical Wand Chase, they discover new foods, music, and languages. Best of all, they make new friends who help them in their quest to find the missing wand. The Magical Wand Chase is deeply connected to Sesame Street’s mutual respect and understanding the curriculum, using the tapestry of the city to show kids that kindness is universal and new friends can be found anywhere.
This adorable DVD will take kids on an adventurous ride in a hot air balloon. Originally Nina was supposed to read a chapter from her book about globetrotting in a hot air balloon, but she forgot her book at home. So Abby, being helpful, offered to use her magic wand to materialize hot air balloons so they could explore Sesame Street. But, she dropped her wand and a bird caught it. Now the adventure turns into an urgency to get the wand back and a memorable experience. But along the way, kids will be exposed to people, foods and lifestyles around the Sesame Street neighborhood. Great DVD for preschoolers.
