My daughter absolutely LOVES Caillou! So naturally she fell in love with both of the Caillou toys we received. We have watched this show a couple times on TV and Leah really fell in love. I think she likes how simple the tv show is but it also has a good message in each episode.
As a Mom I really like that Caillou is only about 15-20 minutes long, enough to hold her attention yet it’s not too long so she is just sitting in front of the TV forever.
Leah first saw the Caillou Learning Train and had to have it. I decided she could as soon as she went poo poo in the potty, bribery why yes! She received her toy later that day and couldn’t wait to open it and play with it! I love how the 2 characters that came with the train (Caillou and his sister Rosie) are removable from the train and can be played with separately if you want.
“Caillou and his little sister Rosie love exploring and learning about the world around them. Now little ones can explore right along with them using the Caillou Learning Train. They’ll delight in watching Caillou move up and down as the train rolls when they wind the green key. Squeeze the steam to hear it squeak. Move the colorful bead shapes along the bar. Move the bell on the detachable train car to hear it ring, and more!”
We also received the really cute Caillou – Plush – 13 Inch Caillou Doll. My daughter loves to play with her babies and she couldn’t wait to have fun with her new baby Caillou. She always has to sit right with him on her lap as they watch the show together, it is the cutest thing. Sometimes I find her talking to him and telling him about her day or ask him if he is ok if she accidentally drops him.
I love how she really is starting to understand interactive play with her toys and really starting to use her imagination.
The Caillou website has some really fun things for toddlers and little kids, like the Printable pages, activities and songs. Your kids will fall in love with Caillou too if they haven’t already!
