New Cookie Monster's Challenge App

Help kids practice self-control, focus, memory and more with the new Cookie Monster’s Challenge App from PBS KIDS and Sesame Street:

PBS KIDS and Sesame Workshop today announced the launch of Cookie Monster’s Challenge for iPad, a new SESAME STREET app and the first app that the two children’s media organizations have created together. Designed for children ages 3-5, the app builds on SESAME STREET’s 45th anniversary season’s curricular focus: self-regulation and executive function skills that teachers identify as critical for school readiness. Cookie Monster’s Challenge offers a series of games designed to engage children and challenge them to practice self-control, focus, memory, following directions and problem-solving. The app launches just in time for the debut of SESAME STREET’s 45th season, which premieres September 15 at 7 a.m. on Rhode Island PBS.

Features of the Cookie Monster’s Challenge App include:

  • Ten Mini-games – Games present exciting challenges designed to give children the opportunity to practice self-control, focus and memory.
  • Nine Levels – With each level, the mini games become more challenging, keeping children engaged and motivated.
  • One Crazy Cookie Making Contraption – As children complete levels, they earn pieces of a giant and hilarious cookie-making machine that they can use to decorate the cookies they've earned and deliver them to their hungry friend, Cookie Monster.
  • Profiles – Children and parents can create up to three separate profiles so that everyone in the family can progress through the game at their own pace.
