Caillou's Holiday Movie
My 2-year old daughter LOVES Caillou. It's nice to have the dvd's that are straight cartoon episodes with no iterruptions. I think Winter Wonders & Family Favorites have really cute episodes. Caillou dancing with his Grandma was really cute. But these are ALL just darling and all keep my 2-year old interested.
The only thing that I wish the DVD had was rolling credits after each episode, but for selfish reasons - the credits are how my children know the episode is over! :-)
PBS has really scored with this series and I would definitely recommend this to parents of toddlers/preschoolers.
The dvd contains mostly newer episdoes, but there are a few older ones on the dvd that my son is not familiar with. The voices are different and the animation and look of caillou is also different. He's very aware of it and usually wanders off during those episodes.
Overall, a good DVD.
Ironically you will find many people whining that Caillou is whiny. Apparently some think he is whiney in old episodes only and some say it is newer episodes. Some say he is whiney in Sprout episodes and some say PBS episodes. I wasn't aware that the channels played different episodes. Some will only let their kids watch "non whiney" episodes as if their leaving the work of modeling good behavior to television. If Caillou is acting up in an episode, you could use the opportunity to point out how his behavior is poor and what the consequences are if your own kids were to behave like that.
In some circumatances Caillou is whiney and some he is not, but that is parallel to at least most parents reality.
What's great about Caillou is that he is learning and experiencing things just like all young children. My children find him fascinating and I appreciate the simplicity and gentleness of the program. His parents model patience which most parents, like myself, could use more.
The best part about this particular DVD is there are no puppets, my girls do not like them at all. I consider this program safe to "babysit" my girls for a few minutes :)

my two year old loves this. my only concern is that caillou can be a brat sometimes, whiny, and doesnt listen when instructed by his mother in a couple of episodes. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Octavia Pierce
Good for bedtime, but it gets old quickly when you're watching the same thing over and over, I'd build a collection to choose from.Published 3 months ago by Noa
