Everything old is new again… or so they say. As a kid I never understood that statement. As an adult living in the 21st century, I am really coming to believe this statement.
My children have watched hours upon hours of my favorite childhood cartoons thanks to the magic of DVDs (okay the persistence of the publishers, but still). We have recently added another classic series to my kids DVD lineup… Babar The Classic Series Season 1. While there is a new set of Babar inspired cartoons on Disney Junior (Babar the Adventures of Badou), they just aren’t the same as the ones I grew up watching on Saturday mornings.
When the DVD came in my eldest immediately asked to watch… and then asked to watch it again and again. Trust me, that is a good sign 🙂
The Babar series is based on the 1930’s era books by French author Jean de Brunhoff. Babar has a hard start in life (his mother is killed by hunters) but he rises above to become King of the elephants, marry Celeste, and start a family. The entire Babar series is subtly full of life’s lessons. It was a favorite of mine growing up and I am excited to share it with not only my children but also with yours. Please be aware that the first episode deals with sensitive matter.
The Season 1 DVD set consists of 2 DVDs encompassing 13 great episodes with a total run time of about 293 minutes and retails for $19.95:
- Babar’s First Step
