Re: Seriously, what is with Cailou??

DD loved Super Why too, she started having imaginary friends that were from the show so Whyatt would come over to play and stuff. Got to be a problem though when DD would do something naughty and then blame Whyatt for it. Um, no, Whyatt didn't do that, YOU did.

My kids like this show but I've never actually watched it with them...I'll have to do that now.

I know right??? That show drives me bonkers. The kids love it, though

yep, my dd got her imaginary friend off of Word World, actually. "Duck" He's been her "friend" for almost a year now, and seriously goes everywhere my daughter goes. And of course, she ALSO blames him for everything naughty. What is it with kids and doing that??!?

Re: Seriously, what is with Cailou??

My DD loves Caillou, I dont get it either, she can be anywhere in the house and they show comes on and she comes running, She doesnt watch anything else on TV ever, she has no interest, but as soon as Caillou comes on its a different story! I dont get it at all. He drives me crazy!

Now the earlier episodes that we have seen on youtube when Cailou was 2 or 3 he was much brattier than he is now at age 4.
My son is obsessed with caillou!! i even went onto ebay to get him caillou and gilbert plush's, and some figures. he has to watch it every day - i have it on dvr. i hate that sprout plays the same ones over and over again though! aaak! get some new ones please!

my ds is the same way - he will come running and sit there and watch it but doesnt really sit still to watch much else unless hes eating.

i dont see any prob with the show. i think its cute and caillou does all sorts of fun boyish things. my ds seems to learn alot from it and its fun. he doesnt get any bad behaviors from the show. my older dh's used to watch caillou also, but they never were so obsessed. my ds1 was obsessed with blues clues when he was this age, so maybe some kids just get like that.

We banned Cailou too. DS was copying Cailou's annoying behaviors. There is no other show that holds his attention like that.
