I guess even with all the positive response the Sesame Street video has gotten, there are those who think it's still not quite up to the mark yet, and isn't sending the "right" message. Well Q and I think it's doing just fine! I love that (even tho it's one muppet) there are many different types of hair featured. I think it makes the video more universal and more kids (and adults!) can relate to it.
Here's what our little caucasion curly girl thinks of the video ...
And here's what she thought at the end :)
and after I had turned the camera off (isn't the the way it goes) she even started dancing like the muppet and singing to herself again!
So, people can make all the controversy out of it that they want to, but the message was clear enough that even a 2 year old white kid loves it! Her specific type of hair might not be featured, but there is still some variety and it celebrates the beauty and versatility of CURLS! Which, in my opinion, we can't get enough of. Well done, Sesame Street!
