I don’t know about you, but some of the shows my kids watch make me want to go nuts. The overexcited yelling, flashing neon colors, and high-octane nonstop noise gets really, really old. I can’t imagine the kids like it all that much, either. Who wants to be berated by a TV show?!
That’s why I really love Caillou. The show itself is really great — teaches lessons, sharing, and how to be a friend — but without all of the flashy seizure inducing theatrics. It’s chill and engaging without being over the top. Even better? It’s on PBS, so it’s commercial free. I don’t have to hear the “I want that!” chorus at each commercial break. Hallelujah.
Caillou has a focus on using his imagination to enhance the world around him. So it’s only fitting that the Caillou line of toys do just that — encourage your child to use his or her imagination! None of the Caillou toys run on batteries, which makes me incredibly happy as a mom. A) No batteries to buy, B) My kids are led to be creative with the toys and to make up storylines, scenarios, and situations that use their imagination!
The Caillou Doll (ARV $$34.99) quickly became my 4 year old’s favorite. She loved to bring Caillou with her wherever she went. She shared her food, put him down for naps, and snuggled on the couch with him.
The Caillou Fireman Playset (ARV $19.99)was an instant hit with my 2 year old son! It’s a great portable toy that he can easily take with him from room to room. I love that it folds up and straightens up nicely.
My youngest, Maisy, loves the Caillou Learning Train (ARV $34.99)! With its squeaky steam cloud and it’s movable shapes, she has tons of tactile manipulatives to keep her engaged and having fun! The big kids love that you can wind it up and let it take off, too!
Caillou the conductor and his mom come out of the train, too, so she can hold them and have a ball with or without the Learning Train!
