Babar- Long Live Happiness- Review and Giveaway

Babar: The Classic Series: The

Complete First Season


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 (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 and Ion, as well as a new hit series, “Babar & 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 in all perfect for the whole family and never before available together as a complete season – follow Babar, his family and friends undertaking many challenges and adventures, all while teaching the most valuable lesson of all: despite life’s challenges, great things are possible if one never gets discouraged.  As Babar says, “Long live happiness!”

My kids LOVE cartoons. They really enjoyed the chance to get to watch Babar the Complete First Season. They have the Christmas Babar and really loved that one also, so I knew they would like this one as well.
I love that it can keep my children entertained while I clean the house or get some work done WHILE teaching them some important life lessons. Challenged present themselves to Babar, but he never backs down, never gives up, and this teaches our children to persevere through anything.
Teaching your children to try their hardest is the best thing you can do for them. All while watching cartoons, who would have thought? This is an amazing collection to add to your classic cartoon selection.
I loved it and so will you!
