Though Henry, 4, and Oscar, 2, were somewhat excited to meet the Cookie Monster last week at Sydney’s Four Seasons Hotel, I could not contain myself! As a What’s on 4 ambassador for Sydney, we were lucky enough to be given the opportunity to meet the real Cookie Monster from Sesame Street, as part of the launch of the 46th season of Sesame Street, premiering on ABC Kids in April. As a kid growing up the in 80’s, I was totally hooked on Sesame Street so was thrilled to be sharing this experience with my own children.
Henry had several questions for Cookie, and while Oscar was too scared to have a chat, Henry spoke to Cookie for a good five minutes, asking all things about cookies, chocolate chips and the Furchestor Hotel.

A huge thank-you to What’s on 4 for this amazing experience! We won’t forget it and have something great to play at Henry’s 21st!
