Sesameworkshop.org is the official website of Sesame Workshop. The site initially launched in 1997 as CTW.org, and included educational materials, for both parents and children. The original Children's Television Workshop site included downloadable games plus number and alphabet coloring pages for the children. Parents could consult references covering "everything from how to comb their baby's hair to how to play with their 4-year-old."[2]

In 2000, the site changed from CTW.org to sesameworkshop.org to reflect the new name of the organization.

In 2006, a Sesame Street press kit said that the website received over 1 million visitors daily. [3]

Beginning in the last quarter of 2006, the website featured its own store where products can be purchased directly from the organization. [4]

In 2008, the workshop launched sesamestreet.org as a home for show information and more of its child- and parent-oriented content. The Sesame Workshop site now focuses on highlighting Sesame's corperate information, history, and humanitarian work.
