Pigeons and Cookies and Trash

Those aren’t really my favorite things but they happen to be the favorite things of Bert, Cookie Monster and Oscar. And I know this because those guys just sang a really cute song about it during the press conference at Universal Studios Singapore yesterday.

Here, I even managed to catch it on video for you guys.

You know what this means right?

Uh huh. Sesame Street has landed in USS.

Starting next Monday, the characters from Sesame Street will be performing live shows like these along the streets of New York in USS. On top of that, there will also be character breakfasts as well as meet and greets so you can get up close with your favorite character.

During the preview breakfast yesterday, we got to meet Oscar, Cookie, Bert and Ernie.

This looks like a picture of calm but it took several tries to get it because the first time we attempted to take a group photo, Kirsten went ballistic when Oscar reached out to hug her. In between shrieks, she was all “I DON’T LIKE THE GREEN ONE, HE’S VERY DIRTY…” And we were like “Um yeah, that’s kind of the appeal. He is living in a trash can, sweetheart.”

On that note, I have to say that the costumes are done really well. I mean, Oscar (who’s my favorite, btw) even has a real trash can attached to his legs so he can park and hide in it whenever he’s tired. That’s just brilliant.

And a couple more shots of the breakfast. Yes, cake does count as breakfast.

In other news, there will also be a Sesame Street ride that will be unveiled towards the end of the year, so stay tuned for that.

      Oh yes they do! At least mine do. Elmo is by far their favorite, followed by big bird and cookie monster. They’ll be bringing in 8 characters, don’t think the count is one of them though, which is a pity cos I LOVE the count too! His counting is so annoyingly cute.

      Hahah chocolate cake for breakfast? Total yums!!

    Breakfast looks like a child’s paradise. Kirsten’s reaction to Oscar was exactly what I was thinking my Spohia’s reaction to Cookie Monster would be seeing as she’s terrified of Cookie Monster, or at least the plush toy version we have at home, which is a shame because I loved sesame street!

      There were the other usual stuff for breakfast like eggs ben and sausages and hash browns but my kids were only interested in the cookies and cakes.

      Maybe she’ll like Elmo, he’s the least terrifying one.. :)

    This is great news! And perhaps the only reason why I might finally go to USS because my kids only watch Sesame Street. Will there be more characters? Where’s Grover and Snuff and Big Bird and Elmo? I think my girl may bring her Elmo soft toy buddies for an autograph! :)

    • Reply Daphne May 25, 2012 at 11:56 am

      On top of the 4 characters we met, there will also be Elmo, Big Bird, Grover and Abby Cadabby! No Snuff though, hopefully they’ll gradually increase the number of characters soon.

    Wow! would consider holidaying in Singapore (halfway around the world from us) just to be able to take the kids to see this… We watch Sesame Street on youtube all the time. I love that they still manage to pull all the big-name celebrities into the show to talk to Elmo and Ernie etc. (I even saw a clip featuring Michelle Obama!)

    I have been hesitant to bring Sophie to the USS. Perhaps, I’ll relent with the Sesame Street gang around :) They are my childhood favorite characters too.
