The Best of Caillou: Caillou's Outdoor Adventures, DVD Review

Caillou learns what it takes to be an athlete, make a garden, build a scarecrow, and even celebrate Valentine’s Day! THE BEST OF CAILLOU – CAILLOU’S OUTDOOR ADVENTURES DVD includes 12 fun-filled outdoor adventures, interactive games, coloring pages and a special message to parents. Over 4 million households tune in to watch “Caillou” each month 

 When finding DVDs for our girls, I'm all about educational movies that can also keep them entertained! We have a bunch of Disney movies, but with a 2 and 4 yr old, sometimes Disney is too mature for them. They're still at the age where they only sit for a limited amount of time and then have to get up, stretch their legs, burn some energy, and then go back to the movie. Since Caillou's Outdoor Adventures has 12 episodes on the DVD, we're able to pop it in and watch one or two at a time. I love that movies like this with multiple episdoes also have the PLAY ALL feature because our 2yr old tends to sit longer which means she doesn't need to mess with the DVD player to continue to watch after our 4yr old leaves the room. Our girls have their own play room and the TV is always on Nick Jr, but since we're slowly building a movie collection, this DVD has become a favorite for our 4yr old to pop in and turn on. They can sit, be entertained and engaged, but at the same time play and take a break with it still running in the background so they're still watching or listening even if its not eyes glued to the TV screen. 

This DVD also features games so if the girls get bored watching the shows one day, we can switch it to games, its something new and fun they're doing, and enjoying themselves!

Over all, I recommend this adorable movie and other PBS movies! My girls recently discovered Dinosaur Train as well on PBS so we have a new channel to watch and my girls can still get good cartoons that help them learn instead of teaching bad habits like some others can.

This DVD is approximately 100 minutes long

Full Screen with Dolby Digital English Stereo and English SDH Subtitles
