Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has launched a Sesame Street-themed app that’s designed to help preschoolers develop healthy lifestyle habits.
Sesame Street: Ready, Set, Grover!, developed by Griptonite Games, will be available for Wii and Nintendo DS this summer.
Warner Bros. worked closely with Sesame Workshop, the organization behind Sesame Street, to develop age-appropriate exercises such as stretching, jumping and dancing. The games also model good hygiene practices and highlight the benefits of healthy food choices.
Accessibility for preschoolers is enhanced with Grover-themed gameplay helpers, available for Wii and Nintendo DS at no additional charge. On Wii, the gameplay helper is a plush character cover with special grips that slip over the Wii Remote. For Nintendo DS, there is a jumbo click stylus designed for smaller hands.
Last year, Warner Bros. Interactive released Sesame Street: Elmo’s A-to-Zoo Adventure and Sesame Street: Cookie’s Counting Carnival, which encourage early literacy and math skills, respectively on Wii, Nintendo DS and PC.
