Wow. We will NEVER forget this incredible evening when Grover came to our hotel room to read Kyle & Kenzie a storybook and tuck them into bed during our vacation at Beaches Resort in Turks & Caicos. The kids both adored the experience but little Kyle, age 3 about to turn 4 the very next day, was incredibly thrilled and delighted beyond belief by this extra special experience.
See the look on Kyle’s face? Priceless!
These Sesame Character “Night Night” tuck in packages are beyond worth the incidental extra expense. The kids did exercises with Grover to stretch and relax before crawling into bed with him for their story. Here they are stretching with Grover.
Next up was snuggling with Grover, while they read one of their very favorite stories – The Monster at the End of this Book. If you haven’t read this book to your kids – you must.
As a child this was a favorite story of mine so I bought it for the kids a few years ago and they instantly fell in love with it. They also prepped for Grover’s visit by reading the interactive iPad story of The Monster at the End of this Book. We didn’t know which story we’d read, but it worked out extra great that we read this story that is so beloved by our family.
Here’s me loving Grover. I think after this adorable experience with his funny friendly engaging night with my kids he’ll forever be my favorite Sesame Street Character. Truly, we will never forget this night. We all said it was the highlight of our vacation in the Caribbean.
Other characters available for the Character Tuck in at Beaches Resorts include Abby Cadabby, Elmo, Zoe, and Cookie Monster. After talking to everyone it sounds like Grover and Cookie are some of the most fun for night time tuck in - however our Butler said they area all really excellent. Some families love the experience so much they arrange for it to happen 2 times during their trip. I can see why you’d like to do this 2 times as it truly is an unforgettable experience.
How much does it cost to do a Character Tuck in?
$85 per child and $30 for each additional child. This also includes a free stuffed plush gift for each child. My kids were gifted adorable plush puppets – Kenzie got Zoe and Kyle got Grover. They have been carrying them around now for the last week and loved this souvenir.
Grover will be in our hearts forever! As will our magical week at Beaches in Turks & Caicos now that we are back to the routine of normal life at home with work & school.
Disclosure: We paid our own travel, airfare, and resort expenses on this all inclusive vacation as it was a personal trip for our family. Beaches Resort offered us this free Character Tuck In for the kids so we could experience this amazing opportunity with our kids to facilitate this review. As always all thoughts and opinions are our own – and you can certainly tell from our photos that we really loved it and definitely recommend it to others.
