How My Little Lion Man Loved The Caillou Talking Doll {review}

Disclosure: I received a Caillou Talking Doll for the purpose of this review. All opinions are shared are my own.

Each of my three children have had different obsessions when it came to their favorite television characters. When my oldest daughter (now age 12) was a toddler, she loved Elmo and Dragon Tales.  When my eight year old was a toddler, she loved Dora the Explorer.

Now, I am reliving all those beloved preschool shows again with my three year old son, who loves all things Sprout. As much as he loves Thomas the Tank Engine, he can also make room in heart for Caillou and oddly enough, my girls never connected to Caillou like my Little Lion Man does. Like a kindred preschool spirits, Liam relates to all of Calliou’s experiences and adventures.

When an opportunity to preview the Caillou Talking Doll presented itself, I knew my little preschooler would love to cuddle his very own Caillou and go on real life adventures with him.  The moment the doll arrived on our doorstep, Liam wanted to play with Calliou.

As the box directly, we squeezed Caillou to hear him speak and learn some new French words. Since we try to incorporate Spanish into our daily routine, we found it exciting to learn some new easy French words such as “bonjour” (hello) and “merci” (thank you),  however, Calliou speaks in English mostly to share his favorite colors and friends’ names.

More than interactive French lessons, Liam found a new playmate with his new Caillou Talking Doll. Later that afternoon, Calliou went of adventure with Liam to the dentist.

The Caillou Talking Doll came adorned with a removable hat and backpack. Liam loved that Calliou carried a backpack just like the one he uses for school. He even found a small book for Calliou that fit perfectly inside his little backpack. How My Little Lion Man Loved The Caillou Talking Doll {review}

 Calliou’s light-weight, plush body offers comfort for little preschoolers while his soft molded hands and face bring to life the loveable character that has charmed children all over the world for over 15 years on televsion.

    Liam is so cute, and so, is the doll. None of my kids enjoyed Caillou, maybe because every time I heard his voice I changed the channel. The doll doesn’t talk, right? ;)
