Kia Grand Carnival on Sesame Street for Elmo’s World Tour

Kia Grand Carnivals and Elmo's 2012 World Tour
Two Kia Grand Carnivals are transporting Sesame Street Superstar Elmo and his celebrity friends throughout Australia during a national tour.

Sesame Street’s Elmo’s World Tour will see Elmo and his close friends Big Bird, Abby Cadabby, Grover, Zoe, Cookie Monster, the Count and Bert and Ernie perform 65 shows to children in 55 towns throughout Australia.

The all-singing, all-dancing live stage show uses the letters of the alphabet to voyage through imagination and sees the gang visit far off destinations like China, India, Zambia and France.

To help the crew travel the 10,000 plus kilometres over the three month season, Kia Motors Australia has provided two of Australia’s most popular people movers, the Grand Carnival

“First we helped Dora to go exploring, then we helped Ben 10 cart his time machine throughout Australia and this year we are excited to help Elmo and a group of his high profile friends take part in a world tour,” said Kia Motors Australia Chief Operating Officer, Tony Barlow.

“The shows are full of light, colour and sound and allow children to see their Sesame Street idols up close and personal. In such an electronic entertainment age, we are happy assist in bringing live theatre to young kids.”

Elmo’s Kia Carnivals come standard with a long list of features including driver and front passenger, front side and curtain airbags to help keep his passengers safe in the event of an accident. An MP3 compatible CD player with iPod connectivity and steering wheel mounted controls will allow the crew to remain alert and entertained during those long trips between towns.

The Grand Carnival dominates the people mover segment of the Australian new car market with more than one-in-three of new people movers sold in Australia wearing the Kia badge and has been voted People’s Choice Award as Australia’s most popular people move for the past four years.
