Charlie & Lola The Absolutely Completely Complete Seasons One and Two

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.

Okay, so I loved Charlie and Lola the first time we flipped on Disney for Baby Jane, but if it's possible, I have fallen further in love with this show since I bought the first two seasons in boxed set. Here's why:

***The children are thoughtful and kind to one another (no bratty sass);
***Charlie and Lola are loving brother and sister in an age where siblings are rivals;
***They work through their problems together;
***They use their imaginations, in fact, the show's foundation is based on using the imagination;
***The kids are adorable, realistic to their ages, and have wonderful senses of humor.

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.

I'm 29 and I watch this show with my 17 year old sister. It is absolutely wonderful. We laugh so much at the quaintness of the characters and their quirks. The stories are very well written and have a positive message that if taken in by all kids, would benefit them, their parents, siblings, and society. This is all done intelligently and without patronizing kids.

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.

Charming stories, funny and sweet, extremely rare to find kids' videos that provide such wholesome, whimsical delight. We are very picky, don't allow TV, but do let our 2 and 7 year old girls watch these (especially on long car trips!) and they love them. They rank right up there with "Andy Pandy" and "Harold and the Purple Crayon."

I had never heard of these books or videos before. i'm the father of a 6 year old girl and we're very protective of what we expose her to on tv. A lot of what we watch is PBS, etc. It was by pure chance that I happened to catch a part of one of these shows live on TV while I was channel surging. Granted, this is a kids show, but it captured MY (the adult) attention right away and I finished watching the show. In fact, I recorded it. Showed it to my daughter a couple days later and she wanted to know if there were any more. Instant hit. I showed it to my wife and she loved it too. This is a rare find people. A wholesome show about a brother and sister who actually get along. The brother shows more patience and kindness to his sister than probably any real brother would his real sister. But it's still really nice, when we're accustomed to watching shows about how DYSFUNCTIONAL families can be in the name of entertainment and comedy, to be able to watch a brother helping his sister, teaching her, taking care of her. And the innocent whimsy and imagination of the sister is really what drives the show. The show tackles topics that are super relevant to ANY kid... fear of failing, how to share, being scared to be away from your parents, losing a tooth, being a picky eater, being scared of things at night, being a good listener, etc. There are at least 3 more volumes that are out there (volumes 9-11) that are not part of this set, but there's no easier, nicer, or better way to get volumes 1-8 all at once. If you have never seen this show, try it right away, you won't be disappointed. And if you have seen the show and you're looking for an easy way to fill out your collection, this is it, look no further.Read more ›

All my grandchildren have loved Charlie and Lola. It's just perfect as a transitional step into story lines. Both Charlie and Lola are lovable, silly, believable characters, and watchers of all ages get addicted quickly to the stories. I love watching them over and over as much as the kids do!

These programs are so fantastic. They are non-violent. The children are very kind, say please and thank you. They do have conflicts and are worked out in very creative ways. The Christmas episode actually says, "Baby Jesus" and they sing the song "Away in a Manger". I really appreciated that since I do believe in Jesus and celebrate his birthday as Christmas day. It's refreshing to find the true meaning recognized in a childrens show, where American's are so afraid to mention Jesus on his birthday, he's been all but removed, it's ridiculous. I am very happy with these videos, and would recommend them to any parent looking for quality programming that you do not have to worry about what your child is watching.

was flipping through the channels one day and happened upon this show. Well I decided to leave it on for background noise but found myself drawn into this cute cartoon. I'm 28 and boy was I surprised that this show was amazing and completely funny and adorable. Being that this is intended for children I still couldn't help watching and very much enjoying it. Both kids and adults will love this series, I know I do!!!
