Meet Pocoyo DVD Review & Giveaway

About The DVD:
"Pocoyo: Meet Pocoyo features a number of adventures about the title character, a four year old boy, and his best friends, a duck and an elephant. These stories offer simple lessons on the importance of friendship.


Pocoyo began airing this summer on Nick Jr. and broadcasts daily – once in the fixed 4:25pm timeslot 7 days per week, plus two other times each day. Additionally, the series airs on Univision’s Saturday morning children’s block, Planeta U at 8:30am, PBS and Discovery Familia.


Pocoyo is visually very different to any other pre-school program. The innovative use of CGI animation allows Pocoyo to become a very real child-- he moves, talks, plays and learns like a toddler, and he can sulk and throw tantrums like only a toddler can! The ‘parent’ figure is voiced by writer/actor Stephen Fry who guides Pocoyo with gentle humor as he explores the world around him.


Pocoyo has a strong educational content, but never sacrifices its entertainment value or sense of fun. The characters, storylines, sounds and visual appeal of Pocoyo have been carefully researched to ensure that it’s perfectly tailored to encourage child development.


The philosophy behind Pocoyo is ‘Learning through Laughter™’. A research study undertaken in the UK by Dr. David Lewis has shown that laughter not only increases the enjoyment and engagement of the child but is proven to increase learning by 67%.


According to Dr. David Lewis there are three likely explanations behind the connection between learning and laughter:


“First it {laughter} encourages a more relaxed and more positive attitude towards learning. Second, it reduces anxiety about failing or making mistakes, which prevents many youngsters from even attempting an answer. Finally, it enhances creativity and a readiness to make connections between different aspects of the topic. In short, laughter helps the brain work better.”


The research study conducted in 2005 included an additional omnibus survey of 200 parents about their children’s laughter, including asking them questions about what makes their children laugh and when. The results were:


Ø Six out of ten (61%) supported the research findings by confirming that their child always learned far more quickly and easily when laughter was on the timetable.
Ø More than nine out of ten (96%) parents said that ‘pulling a funny face’ always made their under-fives laugh.
Ø 77% said that bodily noises make their under-five-year-olds laugh.
Ø However, clowns are out of favour, with less than half (44%) of parents saying that they make their under-five-year-olds laugh.


Pocoyo has already won the hearts of many fan--and many awards too. On Sunday September 5th, 2010, Pocoyo won the Kineo Diamante al Cinema Award at the prestigious Venice Film Festival in Italy, for the most successful film or TV series of the year. In addition, Pocoyo has won three Pucinella Prizes at the Italian Cartoons on the Bay Festival. In the U.K., the television series won a BAFTA Award (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) for Best Animated Preschool Series; and in France, won Best TV Series at the Annecy Cartoon Festival. In the U.S., Pocoyo is the winner of a Parent’s Choice Gold Medal.


In Meet Pocoyo!, a September 7, 2010 DVD release from NCircle Entertainment, preschoolers will learn through laughter as Pocoyo and friends explore the world around them. In seven hilarious stories, Pocoyo enjoys making music, blowing bubbles, solving puzzles and even watching an egg hatch. Filled with sights and sounds perfectly tailored to encourage child development, Meet Pocoyo! was created to engage, entertain and educate preschool age children. The DVD runs 47 minutes and features both English and Spanish language tracks. Meet Pocoyo! is available at www.ncircleentertainment.com or www.amazon.com. SRP $6.99 (introductory rate)."


My Review:
Meet Pocoyo is about a boy with a big personality featuring his fun friends Elly, Pato, Loula, and Sleepy Bird. This is a fun DVD filled with music, puzzles, sights, and sounds. It encourages a child's development. It id tons of fun. My daughter loves it. She dance to the music and point to the TV when these fun characters are on. This is perfect for toddlers. You child can now discover new adventures with Pocoyo. How awesome is that. My daughter wanted to watch this DVD again.

Check out Pocoyo website for more information. It offers many fun features.

Overall we loved this DVD. It was fun for our kids who danced and had fun with the DVD. I would recommend it to my friends and family.
