Now together for the first time in one 8-disc boxed set, the absolutely completely completest collection of Charlie and Lola ever assembled! Lola is four and she will not ever NEVER eat a tomato! Sometimes she is not sleepy and she will not go to bed, and how will she cope when she is really everso ill and may never smile again? It falls to big brother Charlie to win her around, and he uses every trick in the book - logic, humor, but mostly, the power of the imagination. Using 2D cel animation, paper cutout, fabric design, photomontage and archive footage, all the distinctive style and exuberance of Lauren Child's award-winning picture books come to life in this enchanting children's series. Glorious music and sound effects help to conjure up fantastical worlds that only children could invent, while realistic dialogue, voiced by children, ensures these magical adventures really resonate with kids.]]>

16-month old Baby Jane watches an episode before bedtime with a big grin and smiling eyes, and I feel good about what she's absorbing. Heck, it's even soothing to have on in the background while I'm doing dishes. We've watched through volume five, and so far picture and sound quality has been excellent. I'll be watching this show when I'm fifty, it brings such a good feeling of love and humor into our home.
Thank you Lauren Child. You must have a beautiful heart.
My other favorite shows are The Simpsons, Futurama, Arrested Development, and Lost. But this is the only one I can see trying to make my future kids watch.
The set includes eight DVDs, with some favorites like, I Will Not Ever Never Eat A Tomato, Snow Is My Favorite and My Best, and Look After Your Planet. The stories set a great tone for compassionate living and Charlie and Lola are wonderful role models for kids. They work out their problems amicably, they are respectful (without being corny), they are fun, smart and eco conscious.
They're also English so there are subtle British charms throughout, like having biscuits instead of cookies. Charlie is the big brother everyone wishes they had and Lola is a delightful, self possessed, confident little girl. Imagination reigns in the world of Charlie and Lola and it's a feast that you just don't find in other children's shows.
My son started watching Charlie and Lola when he was about one, and at five he still appreciates them. I love cuddling up on the couch and watching this show together, I can't tell you how many times I've seen each episode and somehow they are still fresh for me. I dread the day when he outgrows them because I know I never will. Great for summer days when kids need chill time, for airplane rides and waiting rooms. Highly recommended.
