This weekend we watched ‘Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey’. It’s a documentary about Kevin Clash, Elmo’s puppeteer. It follows his life from an early age, having a passion for making puppets to how he came to be the voice and character of the little red lovable muppet on Sesame Street that kids adore. ‘O’ loved Elmo when he was younger. His favourite colour was (still is) red, he listened to the Sesame Street tapes on his little walkman in his buggy, cuddled up to Elmo in bed wearing Elmo pj’s.
It’s a touching, feel good story that’s worth a watch whether you have kids or not.
