Chutes and Ladders is a classic children's board game. Two Sesame Street versions of the game have been released by Hasbro, under the Milton Bradley label in 2004 and the Hasbro label in 2011.

2004

The game takes the premise of the classic Chutes and Ladders game and alters elements to fit the educational aims of Sesame Street. For example, when a player piece lands on a slide, the square illustrates that the step backward is a consequence to some event. So, if the top of the slide depicts Elmo keeping his helmet on the handlebars of his tricycle instead of wearing it on his head, the illustration at the bottom of the slide shows that he fell off and was hurt as a result. Likewise, advancement up a ladder is justified with some good deed such as sharing or helping others.

The game comes with four playable, plastic character pieces -- Elmo, Big Bird, Zoe and Cookie Monster -- making it playable for two to four players. The recommended starting age is 3+.

2011

The 2011 version takes a similar educational tack in the board design. In this version, the players' pieces are Elmo, Cookie Monster, Ernie and Abby Cadabby.
