I am sure you are very familiar with the Babar name…Who does not know and love this old time friend of kids of all ages? I would like to let you in on a little bit of history about Babar: First appearing in Histoire de Babar, Jean de Brunhoff’s 1931 storybook classic is based on a tale that his wife Cecile had invented for their children. Babar the Elephant has, for 80 years, captivated millions around the globe.
The story of the little elephant who leaves the jungle, visits a big city and returns to bring the benefits of civilization to his fellow elephants has been captured in a multitude of best-selling books (over 12 million sold worldwide, and more than 1000 titles in print) and several animated series, including “Classic Babar” which currently airs on NBC, Telemundo( Spanish channel) and Ion, as well as a new hit series, “Babar and the Adventures of Badou”, which airs daily on Disney Junior.
This June, Entertainment One invites families to discover the magical world of de Brunhoff’s elephant king with the debut DVD release of BABAR: THE CLASSIC SERIES: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON. Hailing from the acclaimed, award-winning HBO Family series, these wonderfully animated stories – 13 episodes ( 2 DVD's), in all are perfect for the whole family and never before been available together as a complete season.
We love Babar and I was very excited to have the chance to get this great recompilation of the great adventures of the elephant. We actually try to get my daughter to watch it in Spanish sometimes so she can practice a little bit and get a few words here and there and since the DVD has the language option ( English, Spanish and French), I let her watch the episodes in English some times and then in Spanish some other times.
Kids are very smart and memorize their favorite shows word for word, so by this means when she watches it in Spanish she learns the words in Spanish as well. One thing I love about the this series is that unlike a lot of the new kids shows, I do not need to worry about the language they use and I also like the fact that their stories have a moral, so the kids can have fun and learn something at the same time.
The Babar classic series is one of those DVD’s that any parent with small kids must have in their library…It is certainly a timeless show that has been enjoyed for generations and will keep being a favorite for generations to come. The DVD can be found at the Amazon store and has a retail price of 19.98 and it is on sale right now for 14.99.
