Caillou Doll and Boat Set Review

My boys LOVE watching Caillou, so I knew they would be excited when this Team Mom review opportunity came up!  Tiny Man has been picking up dolls whenever we go play (and there are dolls available), so I was curious to see what he would think of the Caillou doll when it arrived.

That picture pretty much demonstrates how he spent the next few days!  Caillou slept with him, sat near him when he ate, and he screamed when I wouldn't let Caillou in the bathtub (I wasn't 100% positive how he would do in there!).  He also liked taking Caillou's clothes off, much to the dismay of his big brother.  They both really took to the doll and I was a bit concerned I would have to go out and find another one to appease both boys!  I was surprised by that, but being that it's a boy doll, I think it's pretty understandable!

My photos of the Caillou bath vehicle didn't turn out so well, apologies for the stock photo, but this also continues to be a favorite, both in and out of the tub.  Talker Man thinks it's hilarious because the pieces pop together and you can interchange the pieces.  He likes to stick Caillou's head onto Rexy and vice versa, then laugh hysterically at the creation.

I love that both toys have the wide age range and can hold the attention of both boys.  Tiny Man can't pop the pieces on and off of the boat toy yet, but Talker Man has absolutely no problem.  They love being able to interact with a favorite television character and I think they've both found comfort in the doll during this stressful home upheaval and changes.

Buy It!

You can purchase the toys above from Toys R Us.  The 14.5 inch Caillou doll can be purchased for about $30 and the Caillou bath vehicle set for about $17!
