#Review Caillou's Furry Friends DVD

My son, Aidan loved watching Caillou when he was younger.  Now my daughter, Ashley is enjoying him too. She loves Caillou so much that that was her Christmas gift last year.  

Caillou is a 4 year old boy with a vivid imagination.  He loves his little sister Rosie. Both enjoy going on adventure, playing with their friends and spending time with their family. 

I like that each episode of Caillou teaches him about sharing, being a friend, and finding a common bond to relate to. Caillou has so many positive things that I like. I like to hear my daughter sing the opening song which I know by heart. I sometimes catch myself singing it when the kids are not around.

CAILLOU’S FURRY FRIENDS” will be available on DVD on January 6, 2015. The DVD run time is approximately 58 minutes and its SRP is $12.99. The DVD contains special features including coloring pages and activities.

He and Sarah talk about their feelings, and they decide it’d be fun for all of them to play together.

Caillou inadvertently brings a cricket in the house and decides it’ll be fun to keep it as a pet. When the cricket gets loose and Caillou goes on a wild-cricket hunt, he’s suddenly able to see things from the cricket’s perspective...and decides to put the cricket back outside where it belongs.

Caillou’s Cross-Hop
Caillou doesn’t want to hold hands and obey safety rules...until he discovers a bunch of tiny frogs that need help crossing the street. Realizing it’s hard work helping others to cross the road safely, he has a new appreciation for Mommy and Daddy’s rules.

Kitty Conundrum
Caillou finds a tiny kitten while desperately searching for his beloved Rexy. He wants to keep the kitten, even though Mommy and Daddy say ‘no’ – they have Gilbert! When Samantha comes to the door to claim her lost kitten, “Whiskers,” Caillou fetches the kitty...and finds Rexy!  He remembers it isn’t fun losing something you care about, and happily returns the kitty to its rightful owner.

Lost and Found
When things begin to go missing around the house – like Mommy’s keys – Mommy blames Gilbert. Caillou is sure Gilbert didn’t take them...and he sets out to prove it!  Together, Caillou, Mommy and Rosie backtrack through the house and eventually discover Caillou’s theory was right – Gilbert didn’t take the keys – Mommy left them in the door handle!

Play with Me!
Caillou has no one to play with!  Mommy, Daddy, and Rosie are all busy, and Caillou is bored and frustrated...until he meets a ladybug who inadvertently shows Caillou that his family members aren’t the only ones who are busy – so are the birds and squirrels and ants. Caillou comes to realize that everyone is busy sometimes – even animals and insects – and he decides to get busy too...drawing his new friends.

Caillou Roars
After watching a nature show about lions, Caillou decides he wants to be a lion! He roars and paws his way around the house, causing Mommy and Daddy to remind him that there’s a time and place for everything. Caillou realizes the downside of being a lion when his ‘roars’ scare a baby in the park. He decides there really is a time and place for everything – and sometimes, he just needs to be a boy.
