Pocoyo: Meet Pocoyo! DVD Review

Title: Pocoyo: Meet Pocoyo

I often wonder about the programming I allow my children to watch. Though I try to select mainly educational programs, sometimes I do let them watch cartoons simply for the entertainment value. Pocoyo, a pre-school animation series that launched on Nick Jr. solves that dilemma by providing award winning learning episodes that are also entertaining and fun. Pocoyo (Spanish for “Little Me”) is a three year old boy who enjoys “making music, blowing bubbles, solving puzzles” and my children’s personal favorite watching an egg hatch. Pocoyo’s adventures are charming and the animation is superb. There is a fascinating study that demonstrates that children who laugh a lot are learning at the same time. You can read the entire article at their website. Pocoyo was the proud recipient of the “Parent’s Choice Gold Medal” award.

I thought initially that “Meet Pocoyo” might be too “young” for my 4 and 5 year old children. While it definitely appealed most to my three year old…all of my children sat giggling and answering questions during the watching of this DVD. In fact, my five year asked if this could be their evening selection for the following night too.

To purchase Pocoyo “Meet Pocoyo”  on Amazon for the introductory price of only $6.99. What an excellent stocking stuffer or birthday gift for your favorite pre-schooler.

This fall look for Pocoyo merchandise to be released at a Toys R Us near you!
