We’ve found this great new show called Pocoyo.
It’s really cute and my daughter absolutely loves it!
Pocoyo is this little boy (about 3 or 4) who has some animal friends he plays with.
The animation of the show is very simple with just a white background and the objects/characters being animated. The simplicity adds to the greatness of the show.
Not only does my daughter love it, but my husband and I have gotten really into it – I mean it’s a preschool show, but I’m pretty sure we’d watch it even if my daughter wasn’t around.
It’s that good! And funny!
Oh and the name? Well it roughly means “little me” in Spanish. The story of how he was named is…also cute!
From the Pocoyo site:
…came from the two year old daughter of…the creator of Pocoyo. She used to say a prayer every night…[while] still learning to talk. One night instead of saying “como yo”Â (meaning “like me”) the words came out “poco yo”…So, Pocoyo was born, thanks to the funny way in which all children often mix up their words when first learning to talk!
Pocoyo can be found:
Let me know if you check it out and what you think. But, I think you’ll love it!
