Caillou will forever hold "legendary" status among these parts as the first character that our oldest daughter truly fell in love with. Though new episodes of his self-titled series haven't been produced in a number of years, the folks at DHX Media and PBS Distribution continue to package special compilations that go with seasons and themes, and for spring 2017 comes Playtime with Caillou. This new collection features seven episodes of the series on one DVD (pre-order now). Details below...

Caillou has been a fixture in our household every since Addie and I first came upon an episode of the show on either Sprout or PBS Kids about six years ago. A divisive figure among my readership, yes, but a beloved character for The Rock Daughters™, and one whose educational value I firmly stand behind, not just on television, but from the source material: books. We have several of Chouette Publishing's Caillou books here at Rock Father HQ, and now there's an assortment available on YouTube in all-new Read-Along videos direct from the publisher. It's a fun way to bring some of those stories with wherever you may roam, and an assortment of those videos can be viewed now in the player below...

PBS KIDS VIPAt 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.
