The pre-school learning and entertainment app, Hopster has secured an agreement with Sesame Workshop to include a suite of Sesame Street content on the platform across North America and the UK.

The collection will include short form Sesame Street segments called Global Grover, Count TV and Best Friends.

Hopster takes pride in featuring shows that are not only fun but have educational value. With its focus on research-based early learning, Sesame Street will bring new assets to the platform to support the mission of helping kids learn through their favourite TV shows.

Global Grover shows kids the diversity of the world around them, teaching them about different languages, cultures and religions. Count TV teaches simple mathematical concepts and counting and Best of Friends offers lessons presented by Elmo and Abby Cadabby about dealing with emotions.

Leila Ingram, head of learning at Hopster, said: “Hopster’s core mission of helping children learn while they play is, in many ways, like so much pre-school entertainment content, inspired by the incredibly high standards set by Sesame Street for nearly 50 years.

“We are honoured and excited to collaborate with Sesame Street and to be able to offer its cherished content to our Hopster users.”

Lili Lampasona, senior director of media business development at Sesame Workshop, added: “Sesame Workshop is committed to delivering quality educational experiences wherever kids and families learn and play.

“As families’ media habits continue to grow and change, we are thrilled to partner with Hopster, an innovative and child-centred provider of educational pre-school entertainment.”

Hopster is offering a limited number of Sesame Street episodes to users free of charge. Additional episodes can be accessed via a free seven-day trial of Hopster’s subscription.

Hopster subscribers can access newly-added Sesame Street segments as well as hundreds of further kids’ TV episodes, music, nursery rhymes and learning games.
