Sesame Street has contributed some of the most lasting                                            BeFunky_download (1).png
and memorable children’s characters in modern history.
For over 40 years, the show has continued promoting
basic ideals and teaching kids fundamental skills
that serve them well into their adult years and
numerous related toys have spawned as a result.
The Cookie Monster Food Train, available in the
fall of 2013, is set to be one part of the latest
incarnation of those toys.

Let’s take a look at some of the features

The Cookie Monster Food Train is one part of the Sesame Street Roads and Rails collection. It is a train set that can operate as a stand-alone toy, or it can connect to the larger Elmo Junction. The set has children pushing Cookie Monster as he drives a food train across the rails and talks about his favorite foods. The attachable rail car can attach to the Elmo Junction train set, and it includes a removable crate of bananas so kids can feel like they’re really hauling something.

How Much?

While the set can be used separately, it is intended as an attachment to the main Elmo Junction set. As such, it has a suggested retail price of $16.99, considerably less than the parent set.
