This DVD is very educational and entertaining, except for the scenes with puppets. My 3-year-old did not like them cutting into Caillou episodes, and I personally thought that they didn't really teach anything either. My daughter was confused as to why Rexie (Caillou's toy dinosaur) and Gilbert (their cat) were suddenly talking and not animated! I did not find the puppet scenes interesting at all, rather more annoying. I had to skip over all of them through-out the entire DVD. I've noticed that those puppets are also not in EVERY Caillou DVD, so I found it a little odd that they were in this one. Other than the puppets, all of the episodes in this DVD are great!
My 2 year old daughter LOVES Calliou - BUT - there are TOO MANY FILLERS make up ALL of the PBS Kids DVDs.If a Calliou DVD says it is "110 minutes" - there are 55 minutes of FILLER - not Caillou episodes.Please- make LESS Caillou DVD's if necessary - and stop with the fillers - the kid - not just my daughter - don't like fillers! They don't understand "where Caillou went" and it is really annoying especially after paying for the DVD and shipping and handling [...]I actually ordered 2 DVD's FIRST - and then when I realized that they had all of the "extra's" I tried to find 3 more that did NOT have the "extra's" only to learn that it just isn't reality - Extra's or no Caillou.I'm done ordering PBS Kids now [...]
