At this point it's hard to believe that just five years ago, I'd never heard of CAILLOU. It was that one day when we were still living in an apartment with newborn Addie when we happened to come across the show on Sprout - her little baby eyes immediately drawn to the little guy. Like the "Charlie Brown" of a new generation, CAILLOU would soon be revealed to be a very divisive little guy, one as equally loved as he is loathed (a very trendy bandwagon to hop), but a fantastic, and educational show based on the series of books by Chouette Publishing. When our family moved and established what would become known as Rock Father HQ, CAILLOU became an even more regular thing, watched daily on PBS KIDS (and Sprout), and then again experienced through the books, toys and puzzles. Now, in celebration of the character's 25th Anniversary, PBS Distribution and DHX Media have released a special-edition of CAILLOU'S FAMILY FAVORITES, a DVD of classic episodes paired with a double-length soft-cover companion book housed in an attractive, flip-cover box (perfect for the upcoming Holiday gift season) with a foil-embossed logo.
