I was given the opportunity to get a firsthand look at the Caillou Talking Doll and let my kids play with it because they are the ones that really are my helpers in reviewing this. Once the packaging material that covered up the Caillou Talking Doll was opened and Caillou was unveiled, I couldn’t hear the last of, “Mom, when can we open the Calliou Doll?” I seriously heard it about 20 times before I actually opened it. Of course my kids were arguing over who got it first. So all in all, Caillou was pretty popular at my house from the get go. My kids did know who Caillou was previously as we watch Caillou on PBS Kids.
As a parent that is pretty careful about what my kids are watching I like Caillou. I think the lessons on the show are very good ones and especially very relatable for my almost 5 year old. Back to the doll…the Caillou Talking Doll wears a removable hat and backpack. His outfit also comes off minus the socks and shoes. When you push his belly he talks to you in different phrases. Some are fun facts about Caillou and some are learning opportunities such as the four seasons and two French words. Of course those are my favorite aspects. Overall I really like Caillou the talking doll.
The Caillou Talking Doll was released on April 1, 2014 and retails for $34.99. Caillou has consistently ranked as one of the top 10 television series for preschoolers nationwide since its premiere in 2000. Caillou has won multiple awards, including two Parent’s Choice Awards, in consecutive years.
You can find Caillou apparel, books, home video and other merchandise online and in mass and specialty retail stores nationwide. I found the Caillou Talking Doll online at the PBS Kids Store where you can see all the phrases Caillou says when you push his tummy to make him talk. I also know it’s available in Toys R Us stores too!
