Sesame Street Saturdays: New Facebook Pages and New iPhone Applications

It's a small Sesame Street News Update today! Yesterday was a fun day for Sesame Street, as they unveiled five new character profile pages on Facebook and released two new iPhone applications on iTunes.

There are five new Facebook pages for Murray, Telly, Zoe, Prairie Dawn, and The Amazing Mumford. Truly we are witnessing Mumford's most amazing magic trick--getting himself a Facebook fan page! Seeing such a relatively unknown fan-favorite character receive the Facebook treatment gives hope to seeing other not-as-popular characters as well. Here's hoping for Gladys the Cow!

The new iPhone applications released by Sesame Street yesterday were "Bert's Bag" and "Count TV." The two apps, just like the Sesame Street apps before them, were developed with IDEO Toy Lab and each are available for $2.99 on iTunes. I've played a little bit with both of them and they're both a lot of fun. It's always great to see Bert in any capacity and counting with his bag is great. In his app, the Count introduces classic Sesame Street clips to count along with. Look for a review of both of these apps sometime next week!
