So Lego has never done a Sesame Street set that I know of but this press release may be the foreshadowing of something quite big on the horizon. They mention LEGO and Sesame Street have announced “two separate initiatives” could one be some sets? K’nex had put out one or two but they weren’t all that. It would definitely be cool to see “the street” done in LEGO.
Billund, Denmark—(April 13, 2016)—Sesame Workshop and the LEGO Foundation announced today at the 2016 LEGO® Idea Conference a new partnership to advance their shared commitment to help children become creative, lifelong learners. The partnership includes two separate initiatives focused on unlocking the power of play to create transformative, hands-on learning experiences.
“It is essential for all children to grow up in environments that nurture their natural curiosity to learn through engaging and meaningful interactions with caring adults. Early experiences that are motivating, engaging, and meaningful support the development of teamwork, creativity and other skills that are predictive of lifelong learning“ said Mirjam Schöning, Vice President of Programmes and Partnerships at the LEGO Foundation. “We are excited to join forces with Sesame Workshop to provide early quality play experiences to children around the world.”
