We don't usually cover the Sesame Street
titles featuring Elmo, because, frankly, not enough of you (our readers) seem to be interested (per traffic numbers whenever we've posted something in the past). And that's understandable, frankly: after all, it's not for the adult collector, or something that people usually to put on their "wishlist" and target for their purchasing plans. Mostly - as the studio is well aware! - Elmo DVDs tend to be a spur-of-the-moment purchase by adults (parents/caregivers, grandparents, aunts/uncles, teachers, babysitters, etc.) for the younger kids in their lives who enjoy the character. But we're mentioning this particular DVD release this time, because it's not the usual single-disc budget-priced title in the normal plastic case. Rather, it's seven of the best of those items, but gathered together in a special "schoolbus" packaging!
