Big Bird knows something special that he wants to share with your child: Words are all around you! And he’s made a wonderful Word-o-Scope to help you look for them in the real world – right on your mobile phone!

The educational team at Sesame Street created Big Bird’s Words especially for little learners, to help build and expand their vocabulary. It’s all about getting kids excited about learning to recognize and read written text, as they use Big Bird’s scope to look for a special group of high-interest, themed words.

Big Bird’s word-o-scope recognizes all kinds of printed words IN THE REAL-WORLD ENVIRONMENT, using your phone’s own camera and exciting new augmented-reality tech.

Use it in your home with foods in your pantry or fridge, recipes in cookbooks, and the free emailable word labels provided.

Or take it on the road! The scope works with all kinds of labels on foods at your grocery store.

When kids focus on a word, they can hear Big Bird recognize and read MORE THAN 500 FOOD WORDS. Plus, the scope knows when your child has found thousands of other printed words, too. When kids spot a word that’s not the one they’ve picked, Big Bird offers cheerful encouragement to keep kids on the hunt and focused on the goal. Plus, silly sound effects and Big Bird’s quirky word-trivia make the learning fun!

Big Bird’s Words helps children scan for words in the real world anywhere your family happens to be…at home or on-the-go!
