4.0 out of 5 stars Good for Toddlers February 11, 2005
Format:DVD
I agree with another reviewer that the scene where Babar's mother is killed is a little disturbing. However, it is still relatively mild compared to the more violent themes in the other Babar video ("Babar The Movie"). My 2-year old doesn't seem too bothered by it. Just watch it together with your child a few times to make sure they know that Babar is OK but don't make a big deal of it. The rest of the movie seems to be essentially from Babar books, strung together as a series of stories. The music is good--not fabulous but way more pleasant for adults than Barney or the Wiggles. All in all, I would recommend this for kids 2-4 years with no reservations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Music, Fabulous Video January 13, 2000
Format:DVD
The kids (6 and 2) love it, as do my wife and I. The film takes Babar from infancy to late middle age, with excitement and gorgeous animation in between. A master's choice for any family's collection of childrens' DVDs. The soundtrack ought to be released on its own--it's that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter loves this video April 1, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
My three and half year old daughter loves elephants and loves this video. It provides a nice story line and is very well produced. It's more interesting than other videos for this age group and not as over produced as the Disney movies. It's just right! She now wants to live in Elephant City.

5.0 out of 5 stars An ageless pachyderm and his tribe March 19, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Delightful, full of fun for all ages, my granddaughters, five and eight years old loved it.
As for me, it reminded me of my childhood, when we read the Babar books, written
by Jean de Brunhof to pay for his sanatorium when he suffered from TB. HIs son
took over after him and continued with great adventures of the vegetarian tribe,
who ate wonderful soup of bananas in chocolate!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Most Excellent Elephant ! November 2, 2001
By A. Why
Format:DVD
We are thrilled with the DVD version of Babar-King of the Elephants. My 20 month old was so happy to see one of his favorite book characters come to life. Every part of the production is done with such style. The animation is calm and pleasant, the music is toe-tapping and the voices are fun and lively. I find the DVD chapters well divided and useful if you need to skip over the sad parts - a great convenience to keep the movie seamless for toddlers.

The DVD makes for pleasant repeat watchings for parents. The story is well-paced and reworks the original books in an interesting way.

We hope HBO releases more Babar episodes from this director on DVD. A job well done!

2.0 out of 5 stars Maybe better for older kids... January 10, 2002
By J
Format:VHS Tape
My husband and 2 year old daughter watched this together and there were some parts that were definitely scary for her. The death of Babar's mom, a scary dream sequence and someone getting bit by a snake. She has not wanted to watch it again. She says it is scary and doesn't like it.
The books seem to be on a better level for her. She prefers milder videos like, "Maisy, "Kipper", "The Wiggles" and "The Hungry Caterpillar".

5.0 out of 5 stars Babar!!! November 6, 2006
Format:DVD
Babar was my favorite move when I was younger. Now I watch it and still enjoy it. As for the whole mother dying, well it teaches the small ones that life is short, and dont take things for granted. Also teaches them that death is apart of life, and bad things happen for a reason like with all the bad luck towards the end of the movie. The old woman getting bitten by the snake, the fire in Cornilious house, and the crocadile in the lake. When ever I finally have kids they will watch it and learn from it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad Choice.
I thought Babar - King of the Elephants was a weak DVD, not particularly 'fun,' unless strife is
considered a worthwhile way for children to spend their time. Read more

My advice: either rent this movie or check it out from the library, do not buy it, and I would recommend do not even watch it as there are so many other better movies! Read more

I'm a music teacher and used this to help prepare the kids for a Poulenc concert. The story follows the original quite closely and the music, though not the Poulenc, is very good. Read more
