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

Thursday, April 5, 2012

Join Caillou as he embarks on another series of marvelous adventures that will lead him to new and exciting discoveries in THE BEST OF CAILLOU – CAILLOU’S OUTDOOR ADVENTURES. In these new-to-DVD episodes, 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.

There are four episodes on this DVD:
  • Caillou the Sports Star – He imagines he’s an Olympic athlete and tries to win ribbons for the games Grandma created.
  • Caillou Outdoors – They make a scarecrow to keep the birds away from the garden.
  • Springtime for Caillou – A Vaentine’s Day story
  • Caillou Can Do It! – He and Grandma water the flowers, fill the birdbath, and make homemade fruit juice.  
Specifications: Full Screen with Dolby Digital English Stereo and English SDH Subtitles
Rating: Not Rated
Runtime: Approximately 100 minutes
SRP: $12.99 U.S.

Our Thoughts: During the episodes the kids will learn about gardening, Valentine's Day, nature, sports and a lot more. One thing that I really have loved about the Caillou series is that they not only teach our kids about everyday life, but it also shows them how to use their imagination to have an adventure whenever you need some fun in life.

The episodes on this DVD were not new to us, as they have all aired on television before. With that said we liked being able to watch them anytime that we wanted. We also enjoyed the activities that came along with the DVD. The PC game is one of those activities. Its a game where your kid(s) become paleontologists (Ross Geller on Friends!) and discover Dinosaur fossils. You sweep away the dust and place them in the correct box. He thought it was much cooler then putting his plastic blocks into the proper cylinder holes. This game is great teaching tool for your kids to become more familiar with a computer mouse as well! The coloring pages that you could print were also a nice touch.

In-conclusion, even if you are like us and have seen all the episodes this DVD still has a lot of value to offer. Don't you agree? We sure think so and are giving "The Best of Caillou: Caillou's Outdoor Adventures" DVD 2 thumbs-up!

I love Caillou! My cousin finds him bratty and won't let her kids watch it... but I don't see it.

We don't have cable or satellite but I am familiar with the books and toys. It is nice that the DVD comes with some extras!

Caillou was the fav with my daughter and my son---although they are older now everyonce in a while they'll watch one story-- there really are some great adventures--Once we did a Caillou Day and had the same adventures he had. FUN
