Take Your Cricut to Sesame Street

2008-07-15 10:18:00

CHICAGO–(EMWNews)–The wildly popular furry monsters from Sesame Street will soon be

available to users of Provo Crafts

Cricut®

Personal Electronic Cutter, thanks to a new partnership with Sesame

Workshop, the non-profit educational organization behind the Sesame

Street show.

The Sesame Street cartridge features everyones

favorite characters from Sesame Street that children and adults of all

ages have come to know and love, including Big Bird, Elmo, Cookie

Monster, Bert and Ernie. The classic Sesame Street fonts are also

available on the cartridges, giving Cricut users more than 750 patterns

to choose from. The Cricut will cut

the designs on a variety of materials, from card stock to vellum to

vinyl, at the click of a button.

Sesame Street has been the gold standard for

nearly 40 years, and its characters are loved by both children and

adults alike, said Tonia Conger, Provo

Crafts director of marketing. We

developed the Sesame Street cartridge to give Cricut users the ability

to bring Elmo and his friends into their homes and to use their

imagination in recreating their favorite scenes.

The Sesame Street cartridge will be on display at the Craft & Hobby

Associations annual Summer Convention and

Trade Show in Rosemont, Ill. Also on display are several other new Provo

Craft products, including a Hello Kitty®

cartridge, the new Cricut

Jukebox device and the DesignStudio

software. Attendees are welcome to stop by and preview the products as

well as meet with walk-around Elmo, who will be making a special

appearance at the booth (#1009) during the show.

Provo Craft also welcomes everyone to stop by their booth and

participate in Make and Give,

a program in which guests create free coloring books featuring Sesame

Street characters to be donated to destitute children in Africa through

Tifie Humanitarian.

The Sesame Street cartridge will be available at arts & crafts retailers

nationwide in late October 2008, with a suggested retail price of $99.99.
