Hi..does anyone know where I can purchase Sesame Street on VHS or DVD? I'm sure I can order them on line from PBS, but was wondering if any local retailers carry them.

What can I do next?

EBAY, EBAY, EBAY!!!!!!! I bought tons of them on VHS and DVD for a fraction of the price. People will sell 6 to 10, or even 15 in a lot. And if you buy a couple lots from the same seller, you get a break on shipping!

I loooked on babiesrus.com, which links to amazon and found a pretty large selection of sesame street dvds for a relatively low price. My guess is babies r us probably carry them in the store as well. I have bought einstein and dora episodes from there as well. Good luck.

I bought my girls The Best of Elmo DVD at Target. They love watching it over and over again. I believe I saw a few other Sesame Street titles there as well.

Are you looking for the episodes or some of the specials? We have purchased a bunch of DVDs from Barnes and Noble (Christmas Eve, Put down the Duckie, 25th Anniversary special). Also, don't know if you have cable, but they are available on Comcast On Demand. We watch those a lot. As far as purchasing episodes, though, I'm not sure!

Target has several Sesame Street/Elmo videos & you can order pretty much anything from amazon.com as well, they have a better selection.
Good luck!

Wal-Mart is the cheapest and has some. Target has a couple. Toys R US has the best selection but they cost more. Try eBay...that's where I get most of mine. My autistic son LOVES them, so I'm always on the hunt. Good luck!

My son who is now 2, loved Elmo when he was 1. I found tapes at Walmart and resale shops and garage sales.

Most large discount retailers (e.g. Walmart, Target, Best Buy)carry Sesame Street on VHS and/or DVD. But I've purchased a few on Amazon.com that I couldn't locate elsewhere and in some cases even got a better deal going the Amazon.com way. Good luck.

Hi,

Toys r us and Babies r us carries Sesame Street tapes. You can also check online at Amazon. You can find gently used tapes for a lot less than the stores.
