A Walk Down Sesame Street. An immersive gallery at Soundstage 28 featuring many familiar Sesame Street scenes such as the famous 123 stoop, as well as Bert & Ernie’s apartment where guests can check out Bert’s bottle cap collection, sing with Ernie, and even meet the buzzing little Twiddlebugs! Fans can also get up close with Big Bird in “Getting to Know Big Bird” – a sing-along show with host, Alex.

Sesame Street Collectible Pins. With a minimum spend of S$60 at dining and retail outlets in Universal Studios Singapore, guests can spin the dial at the gashapon machines outside Hollywood China Arcade and take home an exclusive Sesame Street collectable pin. With a total of 10 colourful designs, fans can even approach any roving staff in the theme park for a one-to-one exchange.

Fans can partake in various community events and photo opportunities held across Singapore. These include a giant inflatable installation of everyone’s favourite red monster – Elmo – at ION Orchard, Raffles City Shopping Centre and Universal Studios Singapore, as well as collaborations with local street artists ANTZ, Yip Yew Chong and Tiffany Yao who will each deliver their creative interpretations of the Sesame Street anniversary celebration in a special mural at Bugis Junction from 4 to 24 March.

The celebration will also bring together 50 local and regional celebrities, influencers, as well as artistic talents from Pathlight School – the first autism-focused school in Singapore that offers mainstream academics and life readiness skills to students on the autism spectrum – in a first-of-its-kind exhibition inspired by Oscar the Grouch and his trash can. Each of these individuals will be decorating Oscar’s trash can with creative and meaningful designs to commemorate Sesame Street’s 50th anniversary. All 50 beautifully decorated cans will go on display at various locations within Resorts World Sentosa, including Universal Studios Singapore.
