Our 9 month old boy absolutely loves Pocoyo! After showing him an episode of this animated TV series on YouTube at around 4-5 months of age he now can’t get enough. We let him watch 1 or occasionally 2, seven minute episodes each day as a treat.
We had shown him Baby Einstein and similar “Baby” oriented videos but the animation in these always seemed too busy and couldn’t hold his interest.
Simplicity is what Pocoyo has and this helps hold his interest. There is no background in the animation, but has instead a few 3D characters on a white screen and simple catchy music.
Pocoyo is the main character, he is an inquisitive young boy who is taught right and wrong by the actions he takes in each episode and the consequences that result.
The other main characters are Elly the Elephant, Pato the Duck, Loula the dog and Sleepy Bird.
If you’ve got young children I’d definitely recommend checking out the Pocoyo YouTube Channel , if you’re anything like me you’ll probably enjoy some of the more subtle humour just as much as they enjoy the story.
