(02/18/13) - Sunny Days have come to the Flint Cultural Center. 'Sesame Street Presents: The Body' is now on display the Sloan Museum.
"There's not too many things cooler than Sesame Street. How often can you stand on the doorsteps on Sesame Street?" said Cathy Gentry, Sloan Museum marketing director.
The traveling exhibit is much more than just pushing buttons and making characters talk - there's plenty to make kids get up and move.
"They can jump with Super Grover. They can take a test with Burt and Ernie about their insides, it talks about having fun and being active," Gentry said.
The importance of good nutrition is also stressed - Sesame Street style, of course.
"Baby Bear's Market, kids are encouraged to go through Telly's shopping list and scan items like salads, meat, cheese," Gentry said.
Then there's the music.
"There's the original theme song, there's the current theme song, and the songs we grow up with, and of course, 'La la la la, Elmo's World,'" Gentry said.
And speaking of Elmo's World - that's the showstopper, and visitors can step right into it.
"They can see Dorothy, they can help Elmo get ready for vacation. We have a lot of programs tied with it, too. We have Elmo's Dance Party in a couple of weeks. At the end of the day, parents are going to feel like they've spent great quality time with their little ones. It's a great family experience," Gentry said.
The Sloan Museum's Sesame Street exhibit and programs run through May.
