The Barbapapas' Christmas

 
 
 


I'm a little late for Christmas but I hope you'll still enjoy this one!  The Barbapapa books were written in the 1970's.  I totally remember watching the 5-minute cartoons on tv as a child.  As you have probably figured out by looking at the illustrations, the Barbapapa family can change their shape.  When they do so, they say 'Clickety-click, Barba-trick!'  Aaaah, memories.  :)  Check out the official Barbapapa website here.
Here's a clip of the Barbapapa Christmas special.

  1. I got a Barbapapa bowl and spoon in Zara Home once, which was pretty cheap, unlike the toys, which I admired but didn't buy in a French toy shop. This book is lovely! We only have French versions (bought on camping holidays - I'm Irish) so I didn't know their names in English. Happy New Year!

  2. Oh, dear. You just introduced me to something I'm unfamiliar with. They look like so much fun, I may develop a new obsession...

  5. I used to watch Barbapapa on TV with son, he was 40 this year! I will have to send him a link to your post and see if he remembers it as well as I do.
    Happy New Year.

  6. I had the Barbapapa's New House book as kid (my parents still have our copy!) and I LOVED it. Have collected some of the others for my own kids but golly are they expensive! Wish someone would do a Barbapapa Treasury of some of the English-language editions.

  7. That us so cool! I found this book at a used book store 'special ' section and had to pay 17 dollars for it, waaaaaay more than I usually pay for my used books!
