Sesame Street

I think it's a shame that my kids don't get to grow up with Sesame Street like I did. There is the Egyptian version, that's 20 mins long, but it's not as good as the original English, hour long show. Safiyah loves watching Sesame Street clips on Youtube. Here are a couple of her favorites.


  1. As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dearest sister,

    Haha.. you know, I thought the same about my nephews! And there is so many new shows out there (not better.. in my opinion), that they wouldn't even be interested in Sesame Street :(

    And whatever happen to Fraggle Rock?! :D .. is there an Egyptian version of that?

    Wa'alaykum as-salaam
    Love Farhana

  2. I still love sesame street and I have a daughter of my own. :-)

  3. I dont know a specific reason, But I am not a great fan of sesame street. When I was younger, I watched it just because it was on!

    But again that is just me :D

  4. Btw, masha Allah you have a very nice blog! I am very honored to have you reading my blog :D

  5. Sketched Soul, yea I know what you mean..I just loved the hour long show each day with our fuzzy friends. No fraggle rock here though.

    JessyZ, I do too!

    GJoe, thanks I like your blog too!

  6. Assalamualaikum,

    We're singing the same tune here. :) Grew up with Sesame Street. Cookie Monster, Oscar, Elmo, Ernie, Bart and the list drags on. Too bad it's not shown here anymore. All we have is the big purple Dinosaur.


  7. Ha, Hajar, yea that Barney gets around. Thankfully Safiyah doesn't like him anymore, it drives me crazy!
