Now Available on DVD -- Babar Adventure Pack, 3 DVD Set -- Review and #Giveaway

Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this DVD from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  the views shared are mine and mine alone.



Discover the wonder of Babar, the Elephant King, in this adventure-packed 3-disc collection. Based on the beloved children's books by Jean and Laurent de Brunhoff, this set offers three times the fun as Babar and his jungle pals have adventures galore and non-stop fun, all while learning important lessons of cooperation, teamwork, honesty and patience! Included are the following DVDs: 
  • BABAR: THE MOVIE - It's high comedy and non-stop fun with Babr and his jungle friends in this spectacular feature-length animated motion picture adventure. Also included is a bonus episode from the classic Babar series.
  • BEST FRIENDS FOREVER - This DVD features four classic Babar episodes from the popular HBO series: "Between Friends", "Friendly Agreement", "An Elephant's Best Friend", and "City Ways".
  • SCHOOL DAYS - Episodes include "School Days', "Peer Pressure", Every Basket Has a Silver Lining" and "Kings of the Castle"


My Thoughts:

If you follow my blog, then you know that not only am I am fan of of Babar from childhood to now, but now my girls love Babar, too!  Can you believe that Babar has been around for over 80 years?  

"First appearing in Histoire de Babar, Jean de Brunhoff’s 1931 storybook classic 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 (tens of million sold worldwide, and more than 1000 titles in print), motion pictures and animated series, including “Classic Babar,” which currently airs on Qubo, as well as a new hit series, “Babar and the Adventures of Badou,” which airs on Disney Junior."

Just the other day, the folks at Entertainment One released another Babar DVD -- this time the "Babar Adventure Pack" which consists of the following 3 DVDs:

  • Babar: The Movie
  • Babar: Best Friends Forever
  • Babar: School Days
Having been working with Entertainment One for quite some time, I have had the opportunity to review each of these movies in the past, and have shared reviews on my site with you.  If you missed my posts, here they are again --

Even though I reviewed the 3 DVDs that make up this new DVD set, I was excited to receive this box set, as I knew it would be a great addition to our car DVD collection, or to leave at Nana and Papa's house.  Right now, whenever we go for long car rides or visit and stay with Nana and Papa, I have the girls bring along a few DVDs to watch.  Babar is usually one of the DVDs, as are the girls' Babar plush toys that they put in their backpacks or carry with them. :-)

When we received the 3-DVD set the other day, the girls were so excited.  You would have thought that they had never seen these movies before!  I have lost count on how many times we have watched them.  I can tell you that on a few occasions the girls have asked to watch this on our Friday night movie night, and have fallen asleep midway through, leaving my husband and I to finish watching the movies, as they are so enjoyable.  If you are a true fan of Babar, then you know why Babar is considered a classic!  


Were you a fan of Babar growing up?  Or, does your child watch the new Babar on television? Either way, this is one DVD set worth picking and up and watching as a family.  And, at under $15.00, you can't go wrong for the price.  This would also make for a great end of school gift, or gift to give one of your child's friends for their birthday!
