Play & Teach Big Bird is a 1999 Sesame Street educational toy made by Fisher-Price. The interactive Big Bird toy is programmed with 19 games that teach letter, number, shape and color recognition. He also sings songs and tells jokes. His blue backpack contains a set of "smart blocks" that Big Bird can recognize when they're placed in his hand.
The toy was originally planned to be released in 1998 by Tyco and was going to include a Microsoft Windows-compatible CD-ROM for on-computer play, but this was scrapped for currently unknown reasons.
