"Children periodically fall into a cultus for cartoon characters. In France the word is "personages" which captures a bit of the flavour of the endearment certain characters invoke. "Madeline" is such a character.
If your daughter has fallen in love with Madeline, eventually you will consider buying the DVDs for rainy days. The complete "Collector's" set presents a bargain, for the weaker offerings in the cartoon series are cleverly paired with a stronger must-have cartoon (each disc contains two shorts). In other words, if you try to beat the box price you will miss "Madeline at the Ballet" (excellent) while trying to skip "Madeline in New York" (tedious).
My wife and I pre-screen everything our children see, and this is harmless.
I strongly encourage coupling the DVDs with reading to children aloud the original Madeline stories as an excellent introduction to light verse."
