As you may have seen, malls in SZ often change themes every few months, with different characters coming and going, and now is the time for Sesame Street. This mall is almost like a small community in itself, with a large outside area for people to roam around and enjoy. Dotted around you will see all the famous Sesame Street characters you know and love, such as Cookie Monster, Big Bird and Elmo. This are large and well detailed colourful statues that the local children are enamored with.
You can take pictures with the various statues, in fact its encouraged. Just be prepared to wait for your turn, especially on weekends when there are long lines.
