Sesame Street Magazine is an American monthly magazine based on the long-running children's television series Sesame Street. The magazine features characters from the television series, and emphasizes Sesame Street's educational goals. The intended audience includes children under the age of five and their parents.[1]

The Sesame Workshop (formerly called the Children's Television Workshop) published Sesame Street Magazine from October 1970 until 2001. The Parenting Group then assumed publication, and until 2008 distributed it optionally to subscribers of Parenting. Since 2008 the Parenting Group has distributed Sesame Street Magazine electronically and without charge.

The Parents' Choice Foundation commended Sesame Street Magazine with the Parents' Choice Award on 18 occasions between 1970 and 2007.[1]
