Here’s something for the fashionista moms and for the kiddies. Harpar’s Bazaar celebrated the 40th Anniversary of American children’s pop-culture icon, Sesame Street, with some of the best designers in the biz.

For the 4th of July holiday, President Obama gave a birthday shout out to Sesame Street and it’s contributions:

So what are Sesame Streets big plans to bring in their 40th birthday?

* The 40th anniversary will be Nov. 10, 2009.

* This season, Sesame will use CGI animation for the first time, in Abby segments called “Flying Fairy School.”

* The next two seasons will introduce a science curriculum focused on nature.

* Someone asked what the hardest letter to feature is. You guessed it: X. They’ve had numerous discussions about how to move beyond x-rays and xylophones.

* In Sesame’s tradition of pop-culture parodies for the parents, next season they’ll do Mad Men.
