Celebrate the 12 days of Christmas with Caillou and his family. Caillou receives a special advent calendar from his parents to count down the days until Christmas, and each night Caillou and his parents open a flap to discover a new picture of a holiday celebration somewhere in the world. As the family talks about different Christmas traditions, Caillou learns that a young boy in Germany started the tradition of the Christmas tree, that English school children made the first Christmas cards, and that Christmas stockings (and shoes) figure prominently in holiday celebrations in France and Hungary. He also learns about Hanukkah and the lighting of the Menorah from his friend Leo. As Caillou and his family enjoy their own holiday traditions, they discover the universal importance of giving and sharing. Music, including eight original songs, abounds in this 73-minute program. Unlike more typical Caillou episodes, there are no animated segments focusing on the interactions between Teddy, Rexi, and Gilbert in this presentation nor does Caillou find much to whine about in this festive season. DVD extras include an interview with Caillou, a holiday sing-along, and six challenges. (Ages 2 to 6) --Tami Horiuchi

This DVD came with bonus extras (games, etc) but I am only reviewing the movie as that is what I have watched; 12 times since we opened it 2 days ago to be exact. My son loves Caillou. So it was natural that he would enjoy this movie. As a matter of fact, he loves it and has become quite the remote control/TV/DVD hog since having this movie. The other reviewer is correct as the movie is all animation without the puppet segments. But you know what I prefer it that way. My son always mistook Rexy and the other puppets as interruptions and they never held his attention for too long. The movie has very beautiful songs and truly gets in the spirit of Christmas, giving, love, family, friendship, etc. I do not want to spoil the movie for others but it is kid friendly packed with morals. Now I am a sociologist so I may be just a bit biased but I absolutely loooove how the creators added how other cultures in the world celebrate Christmas not just the U.S. (Puerto Rico, Germany, Austria, Mexico etc.) They also gave a bit of historical background (How the Christmas tree came about, etc) This is a nice touch for anyone who shares a different background or just would like their children to know how other little children celebrate Christmas! This is the best Caillou ever. Feliz Navidad!

Looking at "Caillou's Holiday Movie," it's obvious that the staff of the show was going for someting a little different. Stories in the show itself are only an average of five minutes long, but this is a full ninety-minute presentation.
The writers and animators seem to have been successful and the result is a great story with beautiful musical interludes that kids will enjoy watching. There's a lot to be learned about holiday traditions from around the world, much of it coming from a twelve days of Christmas calendar that Caillou receives as present from Daddy. Although there are no puppet segments, most of the best characters are present in the story, including some favorite guest characters that are nice references to past stories. Fans of Rosie will also enjoy the movie and the special way in which she surprises everyone in Caillou's family.
If buying the DVD, note that while the story is good, the special features really aren't much to cheer about. The Caillou interview bonus doesn't actually relate to the movie, but is actually more of a cute filler segment in which Sarah attempts an interview with Caillou for her school, but can't get straight answers out of Caillou and then experiences technical difficulties. The "singalongs" are simply cut from the movie, they don't even have lyrics at the bottom of the screen or close-captioning to follow along. Finally, the promotion of "six Caillou challenges" is somewhat miselading. There are a two games including, each with three levels, for a total of six "challenges."

I admit, I'm not a big fan of Caillou as an adult. I think the illustrations are simplistic and flat, and Caillou is usually a whiny brat. So, it was with a little trepidation that I bought this holiday DVD last year. I have to say, though, that it's a fine holiday movie and much more engaging than the show. Caillou doesn't whine, but appears curious and thoughful.

My son doesn't use the Bonus material, but really enjoys Caillou's first feature-length holiday movie.

Five stars for the film, but two for this DVD release at best. If you have the original DVD release of this film or can get it, then there is nothing worth bothering with here. No closed-captions or subtitles, no French or Spanish language tracks like the original disc, and while this DVD has the Caillou interview and two sing-alongs that were originally included, it's missing the six games found on the original. For something billed as being released celebrate Caillou's 25th anniversary, this is a really poor showing.

I bought this video for my children, ages 5 and 2, and it has quickly become a holiday favourite in our house. If your children already enjoy Caillou on PBS, they will love this movie. It is just long enough to tell a more detailed story than the tv show can, and still retain a preschooler's attention span. Four year old Caillou is anxious for Christmas to arrive, and in order to help him understand the concept of time and to help him count the days remaining, his parents give him a special calendar. Children count down the days with Caillou as each night before bed he opens another calendar window, and his parents tell stories and sing songs describing holiday traditions around the world, and explain the origins of familiar traditions too. (These are quite loosely interpreted, however they are perfectly geared toward a young child's level of comprehension, and are entertaining as well). Each day leading up to Christmas, Caillou shares fun seasonal activities with his family and friends, such as watching the Santa parade, participating in a school play, skating and sledding, and learning a little about Hannukah traditions too. The movie discusses positive values, such as the importance of giving and sharing (without being "preachy") as Caillou donates toys to less fortunate children, prepares cookies for Grandma's friends at the seniors' residence, and makes cards for his loved ones. The story is sweet and entertaining, and full of catchy and charming songs. My kids love it, and watched it often during the month of December, but it is one parents won't mind having on repeatedly (well, not too much lol). My son is in French Immersion kindergarten, and I plan to buy the French version of this movie next. I would highly recommend it to any parent with young children.
