Pocoyo is a children’s show about a sweet little boy and his fun animal friends, Elly the elephant, Pato, Loula and Sleepy Bird. The show has short but cute and memorable skits that I guarantee that not only kids but adults too will fall in love with.
My children ages 3 and 1 years old where introduced to Pocoyo in his fun little world on the DVD ” Pocoyo- Fun and Dance a few weeks ago. It’s been a definite hit in our home. This DVD with a running time of about 50 minutes has a total of 7 stories: The Big Sneeze, Drum Roll Please, Umbrella Umbrella, A Mystery Most Puzzling, Double Bubble, Sleepy Bird’s Surprise, and Swept Away.
Each story is around 7-8 minutes long and teaches children important character building lesson such as the importance of sharing, friendship, and much more. I like that the stories are short, simple and straight to the point. The voice over narrative by Stephen Fry is great. As Pocoyo and his friends are interacting, the narrative voice over asks questions and explains how the characters feel, what they may want, and what they are doing. This is key and keeps children engaged as to what exactly may be happening.
I would highly recommend exploring the world of Pocoyo with your child. This show is short, sweet, and makes learning fun. It’s laid back feel is a desirable factor for parents that want something that’s not annoying or overly loud as we know that some shows geared toward children can often be.
