Seriously, what is with Cailou??

My kids LOVE this stupid whiny bald 4yo brat. WHY??? I don't get it!! They have PBS on all morning long mostly just background noise. They play for a bit then watch a few minutes of Clifford, Dinosaur Train (DS usually watches all of this), maybe some Elmo, but the second Cailou comes on, they turn into zombies! The house could fall in on them and they would still sit there zoned out to this stupid show! Don't get me wrong, I totally take advantage of it and get my shower then, but man alive, I can't stand the kid! If he were real he'd have a lot of timeouts in my house!

I've actually had to ban it from our house-my 3 yr old has started repeating some of the things he does/says-he is NOT a good example for kids

I can't stand Caillou. His voice is so annoying! And I agree, his whiny attitude is not the best example for preschoolers. Our kids LOVE Caillou and I've had to redirect them to other things. I don't get it, either.

Okay. Caillou is on while my ds is napping, so he doesn't usually watch it. He woke up pretty late today, so he took his nap after it was over. I wasn't paying close attention to the show, but Toby was definitely "zombied." What's so bad about it? I mean besides the fact that it's irritating.

Ugh HATE this show! Thankfully I've been able to avoid it for my kids. They like Super Why and Sid the Science Kid. Phew! Dodged the bullet there.

But then again, there is Dora and Diego.....ugh.

It is the voice that kills me. Why Elmo doesn't bother is a wonder.

Re: Seriously, what is with Cailou??

My daughter just recently started getting into Caillou. My friend that's watching my DD for me while I work has a little boy (the same age as my DD) who LOVES Caillou, so my daughter's watched it with him.

He's kind of annoying, but I don't hate it... I just do something else while she watches it.

DD's favorite is still Curious George. And I like that show, too.

Not my favorite show either. We are big Curious George fans
