The Big Moving Adventure

Spring 2014 Mobile Apps
Ages: 3 - 5 yrs.
Developer: Sesame Workshop
Platform: iPad

Moving to a new house isn't always fun. And it can be scary and confusing for preschoolers (or any of us for that matter). Sesame Street's The Big Moving Adventure was created to smooth the bumps— from learning of a family's move, to saying goodbye to friends and familiar surroundings, to making new friends. Originally created for Sesame Street's Military Family Initiative, the lessons are applicable to any family with an impending move.

The app lets children customize a muppet friend and help him/her move to a new home. Activities include helping decide which toys and books to pack away, and which few special things should be close by at all times. Players will practice saying goodbye—and then hello to new friends.
