A Visit to Sesame Street: Letters is an edutainment title for young children. It tries to familiarize them with the alphabet. The game is similar to Sesame Street: Numbers except for the content.

There are various (inter)activities and games to be played with well known Sesame Street characters such as Bert and Ernie. Additionally the game comes with over an hour of footage from the show, including songs about letters. Jim Henson himself voices Ernie who also gives hints throughout the entire game.

The main area is Sesame street itself. Various doors lead to various locations. Oscar accompanies the player. In the Windows version of the game Oscar is replaced with the Telly Monster. Included locations are Big Bird's nest, Snuffy's cave and Bert and Ernie's apartment.

In each room the player can find a radio that allows him to play various songs and video clips from the show. Radio messages are read by Jerry Nelson, Marty Robinson and Jim Henson as Kermit the Frog. [source:mobygames]
