The Little Tikes Company, subsidiary of MGA Entertainment (MGA), introduced the Little Tikes Story Dream Machine earlier this year. The toy projector launched with a catalog of story collections for extended story time. Now, the brand has announced an expansion to this catalog via a collaboration with Sesame Workshop, the global nonprofit organization behind “Sesame Street,” welcoming the new “Sesame Street” Elmo and Friends Collection to shelves this month.

The Story Dream Machine is a portable projector for read-along children’s stories that doubles as a white noise machine and nightlight. First launched in August and quickly selling out, the Story Dream Machine is an early reading tool, toy and sleep solution for children. Now, the new story projector is back on shelves ahead of holiday shopping season with a growing catalog of stories from “Sesame Street.”

“Lying down for the night can be an especially challenging part of the day for some children, but at ‘Sesame Street,’ we know that our minds and bodies need rest, so we have energy to have fun and learning the next day,” says Gabriela Arenas, senior vice president, global product licensing, Sesame Workshop. “We’re pleased to team up with Little Tikes to spark curiosity, create wonder and inspire endless imagination as children get ready for bed.”

The new collection is sold separately and features three stories – “Elmo’s Furry Friend,” “Elmo’s Trip to the Farm” and “Elmo Visits the Dentist” – plus one Elmo character that activates calming lights when placed on top of the machine and set to night light mode.

“Parents all over social media are hailing the Little Tikes Story Dream Machine as the ultimate play and bedtime solution for kids ages 3-6 due to its calming, colored lights, lightweight portability and beloved educational stories,” says Isaac Larian, founder, chief executive officer, MGA Entertainment. “Now, the ‘Sesame Street’ Elmo and Friends Collection offers parents more stories to enjoy with characters they know and love. One of the hot new toys this holiday season, these story cartridges and Story Dream Machine projectors are already flying off the shelves so don’t wait to get yours.”

The Story Dream Machine and story collections are available at Amazon and Walmart.
