Sesame Street: Cookie's Counting Carnival

Sesame Street: Cookie's Counting Carnival
Nintendo WiiMath

This game makes math fun at the Counting Carnival! By playing this video game for the Nintendo Wii, children will learn about numbers and counting. The best part is that the game contains the instantly recognizable characters, Cookie Monster and Big Bird.

Cookie's Counting Carnival promotes math and geometry skills that include number identification, counting, shapes, and pattern recognition. All this learning is done through fun, mini-games.

The game has several different backdrops, including the Arcade, the Grandstand, the Petting Zoo, Concession Stand and of course, Rides.

This video game is made for preschoolers, and it is a fun way to get them counting. The game even includes a Cookie Monster cloth to cover the remote so younger players will more easily understand the game controller. I considered this to be a strong selling point for the game.
