SESAME STREET: ONCE UPON A MONSTER (G)
Xbox 360, $59.95 ★★★★ This exclusive Kinect title has players interacting with Cookie Monster, Elmo, Grover and other characters from the classic TV series in a variety of mini-games. Thanks to its hands-free nature, the game is approachable, and in typical Sesame Street fashion its gameplay reinforces important skills such as empathy and friendship. It’s a little on the short side, but there’s plenty of replay value here. Parents looking to engage their kids with a fun game should look no further. Out now.
