Caillou Bathtime with You Activity Set ~ Review & Giveaway

Posted by Jenna | Thursday, May 09, 2013



*The product for this review/giveaway was provided by DHX Media. However, all opinions are my own and were not influenced in any way. 

My kids don't watch a lot of television, but when they do they have their favorite television shows they ask to watch. Caillou is one of their favorites! Sometimes I think Caillou is a little bit whiney, but it does seem like a wholesome, adventurous show for preschoolers, helping them learn how to manage everyday things like tying shoes, composting, how to be healthy, and more!


What I like about Caillou is that there's a lot of discovery and learning going on. His world is much like that of my kids, and it's fun for them to see him discover new challenges and learn and grow through them. I appreciate that this program is focused on healthy living such as exercise, nutrition, and safety. As Caillou overcomes life’s obstacles and makes healthy choices, children watching are inspired to do the same.

All-new episodes of Caillou are now airing on PBS and Sprout.We DVR them once in a while, but were recently sent a DVD screener of Caillou as well. When the DVD arrived, the kids were excited to watch it, as it had been a while since they had seen a Caillou episode. With Spring here, it was fun for them to learn about composting, gardening, planting and more. In fact, they enjoyed it so much that they asked to watch it again.

We were also sent a Caillou Bathtime with You toy.
Like most children, my kids love to take baths...especially when they have lots of toys to play with. I always think it's fun to see how they play with toys in the water and all the learning that goes on in the process (ie. what floats and what doesn't). Now, my little ones enjoy bath time even more with this fun activity set.

The Caillou Bathtime with You toy came in a box, and when I pulled it out I noticed there were several pieces. Thankfully, it was super simple to put together - my five year old and three year old even helped.
Once we had everything assembled, we were ready to go play. Not only is this is a terrific toy for the bathtub, but it's also a great toy for water/sensory play as well. Since I knew I'd be taking pictures for my blog, I decided it would be fun to let the kids play with it in our sensory tub that we use for water play. They absolutely loved it!
There is a small Caillou figurine which they enjoy sending down the slippery slide and floating around in his swim ring. Kaden especially enjoys the the large Caillou hat which can be used to scoop up water and pour it in his head!
  


One thing I really like about this toyis that it has attached suction cups. This is great for drying, as we can simply hang it on the bathtub wall and it will be dry the next time we want to use it. What a great feature!
Overall the kids have all really liked this toy. Suggested for ages 12 months-4 years, this is a toy that will last us a long time, getting a lot of use! I would definitely recommend it to families with young children.

    Love that it comes apart and you can use the hat as a water scoop. I read the reviews by others and they seemed to love it.

    I love that this is a water toy opposed to not being able to be in the water. My granddaughter loves her baths and loves Caillou.
