Sesame Street is one of the most iconic TV shows of all time. The show, which debuted in 1969, first aired on PBS, and in 2008 moved to the Big 3 networks, including ABC, CBS and NBC. The Sesame Street characters, which include Big Bird, Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Oscar the Grouch, are beloved by children around the world.

The Sesame Street toys line consists of dolls, playsets, and vehicles. The dolls, which include Big Bird and Elmo, are large and feature soft, plush bodies. The playsets have a variety of features, including rides for Big Bird, a slide for Elmo, and a pool for Cookie Monster. The vehicles, which include a fire truck, police car, and school bus, are colorful, durable, and safe for children.

Our testing team puts each toy through its paces, evaluating factors such as durability, safety, play features, and value. These toys are some of our favorites, whether you're a Sesame Street fan or just looking for toys that your children will love. Here are our picks for top 10 Sesame Street toys:

Well, we figured it was about time we got our first Elmo plush toy -- the kids had been asking for one for years, and we finally caved in. The 10-inch Elmo plush toy from Sesame Street is super soft and cuddly, and it's even a little more huggable than our favorite plush Elmo toy from 16 years ago. It's a few ounces heavier, though, and it's not quite as cute as the newer Elmo toys from Fisher-Price (which cost about twice as much). The face is a little darker than on Elmo's current Fisher-Price toy, and the eyes are so big and expressive that we can't help thinking they're a tiny bit creepy. But it's a good buy for Elmo fans (or for anyone looking for a cuddly plush toy), and it's one of the best Elmo toys we've ever tested.

The Sesame Street Bath Squirters don't squirt as forcefully as the Munchkin Monkey Bath Toys, but they're still fun for kids to play with. The figures feature our favorite Sesame Street characters like Cookie Monster and Ernie, and kids will enjoy squeezing them underwater to fill them, then squeezing again to squirt water. The bath toys are sized right for little hands, and the soft, squishy material makes them easy to hold and squeeze. The squirters also feature suction cups on the bottom, which makes them easy to clean. The suction cups work well on hard bathroom surfaces like tile and ceramic, but they aren't as secure on softer surfaces like wood. And while the suction cups are removable, they can be a little hard to attach to surfaces, so young children might need some help. The suction cups are also a little small, so they won't be able to attach to most sinks. The suction cups are removable, so bath toys can be removed and cleaned if needed.

Sesame Street Peekaboo Cookie Monster Talking 13-Inch Plush Toy for Toddlers, Kids 18 Months & Up, Blue

Sesame Street Peekaboo Cookie Monster 13-Inch Talking Plush Toy for Toddlers

by Hasbro

FUN SOUNDS, PHRASES AND LAUGHS: Me love cookie! This Sesame Street Cookie Monster plush talking toy features signature sounds and silly phrases that kids will love!

The Peekaboo Cookie Monster plush toy from Sesame Street is adorable, and it comes with three colorful, unlockable songs. Kids will love squeezing Cookie Monster's tummy, which makes his arms go up in a gesture of surprise, then he'll make an adorable sound when he turns around and sees who squeezed him. The toy has fun, built-in animations, but we found that three was just the right number for the animations. The toy also dispenses three cookies (included), which are edible and non-toxic. The toy is cute, affordable, and well-made, but it's best suited for kids ages 18 months and up. Older kids may pull on Cookie Monster's head and get him to pop up higher, which can make the toy harder for younger kids to reach.

Sesame Street Love to Hug Elmo Talking, Singing, Hugging 14

Sesame Street Love to Hug Elmo Talking

by Hasbro

Speaks English and Spanish: hugs please! abrazos Por Favor! love to hug Elmo comes with English and Spanish mode.

This cuddly Elmo plush toy talks, sings, and hugs. It's perfect for kids ages 18 months and up, and it's a fun way for kids to hug and show their affection. The toy responds to hugs, and kids can even sing, dance, and laugh along with Elmo. But it's mainly the big hug that really makes Elmo stand out. Squeeze Elmo's tummy, and he'll raise his arms and call for a hug. Give Elmo a hug, and he'll respond with either a fun song, phrase, or kiss. The toy's big hug is our favorite feature, because kids really love to give Elmo hugs. The toy is well-made, and it's machine washable so kids don't have to hand wash Elmo. The plush toy is 14 inches tall, and it's made of soft materials. The toy is colorful and gender-neutral, so it's suitable for both boys and girls.

Sesame Street Neighborhood Friends Includes 5 Figures, 3-inches, Classic Collectibles Pack for Toddlers, Great Toy for Kids 18 Months and Up

Sesame Street Neighborhood Includes Friends 5 Figures

by Hasbro

GREAT GIFT FOR KIDS AGES 18 MONTHS AND UP: A great gift for birthdays and holidays, this fun 5- figure pack of Sesame Street characters is an adorable choice for kids ages 18 months and up

The Sesame Street Neighborhood Friends 5-pack of 3-inch figures is adorable, and it's a great addition to any playroom or collection. The figures' likenesses are faithful recreations of characters and stories from the TV show, and the packaging resembles that of the classic Sesame Street toys. The figures are small enough for little hands to hold, which is perfect for keeping kids engaged. Each figure comes with a removable hat, which is perfect for role-playing. The figures stand upright on their own, but they can also sit or stand with assistance. The 5-pack is the perfect size for kids 18 months and up, though older preschoolers might also enjoy it. The figures do require minimal assembly, so they're easy for young kids to put together on their own. The 5-pack retails for $20, which is reasonable for a set of five 3-inch figures.

Sesame Street Playskool Cookie Monster's On The Go Numbers

Sesame Street Playskool Cookie On Monster's The Go Numbers

by Hasbro

Includes fold up carry case and 20 play pieces (10 cookies and 10 numbers).

The Sesame Street Playskool Cookie Monster's On The Go Numbers is a cute, educational toy, and it's one of the more fun ones we've seen for preschoolers. The buttons are easy to use, and they seem to trigger the characters' responses, which helps them learn their numbers. The characters are cute and nicely detailed, and the play pieces are of good quality. The set is let down, however, by a lack of educational value. First, the balls are too small and too light to be realistic. And second, the "set" consists of only 20 play pieces, which aren't very educational. The set includes 10 cookies, 10 cookies plus two star-shaped pieces, and two cookie-and-number pieces. The only play piece that isn't a tooth is a green star, and while that's a cute and cheery addition, it's not as educational as the other pieces. Our testers also thought the 10 characters were too few, and that more variety would have helped. The set is a lot of fun, but, for younger children, it falls short of what's needed for educational value.

Playskool Sesame Street Singing ABC’s Elmo , Red

Playskool Sesame Street ABC’s Singing Elmo

by Hasbro

With cuddly plush characters and colorful musical toys that get children up and active

The Playskool Sesame Street Singing ABC’s Elmo is cute and cuddly, and it's fun for younger kids to play with, but it's a few notches below the best models we reviewed. The inclusion of Spanish phrases is a nice feature, but the other phrases come across as a bit forced, and it's harder to make Elmo say them than it is to make most other toys say them. (We also had trouble getting Elmo to say the letter R, and he sounds like a robot when he says it.) The letters themselves also sound a bit off, and you can't sing the ABC song with him (and you can't change the song). Still, the Elmo is well-made, and it's fun for younger kids to play with, and it's a good introduction to letters.

-Sesame-Street Neighborhood Friends Includes 5 Figures, 3-inches, Classic Collectibles Pack for Toddlers, Great Toy for Kids 18 Months and Up

Sesame Street -Sesame-Street Neighborhood Includes Friends 5 Figures

by Hasbro

GREAT GIFT FOR KIDS AGES 18 MONTHS AND UP: A great gift for birthdays and holidays, this fun 5- figure pack of Sesame Street characters is an adorable choice for kids ages 18 months and up

The 5-inch figures - Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby, Grover, and Elmo - are nicely sized for little hands. They're also soft, making them easy to hold, and they each have classic, friendly faces. They're also well-made, with no cheap-looking plastic or soft pieces. Each figure comes in a colorful, wall decal-like package that feels a bit like old-school Sesame Street packaging, with fun illustrations and bright colors. And best of all, the figures are very smooth and poseable, making them perfect for making up stories or playing games. The set includes enough figures, colors, and accessories for hours of fun, and for young kids, the included Sesame Street storybook - a 16 page book that features a picture of each figure, along with a short, simple story that introduces each character - will be a great way to help them learn the names of and become familiar with the characters.
