Pocoyo – ¡Vámonos!

Category: Pocoyo

The question on everyone’s lips – ¿Quién encenderá la llama?

Before anyone panics, it’s not a question about burning llamas! Una llama in Spanish is a flame!

So – Who will light the (Olympic) flame? Could it be Beckham? Could it be our oldest surviving Olympian? Someone born on the day that the Olympics started in London in 1948? Sir Steve Redgrave as our ‘greatest Olympian’?

I don’t know! But who will light it in los Pocoyo Games 2012? You won’t have to wait until midnight to find out – watch and discover!


¡Empiezan ya!

As the Olympic Opening ceremony begins at 9pm BST, here’s Pocoyo opening his own games for those of you who are might be a bit young to stay up for all the fun, and for those of you who just love Pocoyo.

I think our TeamGB 4x100m relay team need to watch this for a novel way of getting the baton around!


Yo ? Pocoyo

Given my love of Pocoyo and the imminent festivities, I just had to share this clip with you.

El Mundo de Pocoyo


I have declared my affection for Pocoyó previously on this blog and have subscribed to the Youtube channel dedicated to this lovely little chap. His latest clip is above and announces Mundo Pocoyó.

As the blurb says –

Un mundo virtual donde los niños pueden compartir experiencias y aventuras con sus personajes favoritos: jugar con Pato en el parque de atracciones, visitar la boutique de Elly o pintar y colorear con Pocoyó.
Actividades didácticas y amenas que ayudan a conocer el mundo, juegos que estimulan la habilidad, capítulos y melodías siempre disponibles para disfrutarlos online, miles de posibilidades al alcance de todos con un claro objetivo: aprender riendo.


Welcome to Pocoyo World!

A huge virtual world where kids, parents and carers can share adventures with their favourite characters: play with Pato in the theme park, visit Ellys shop or paint and colour with Pocoyo.

Educational activities, games, puzzles, episodes, music and dancing, all available in a totally secure environment, with one simple objective: learning through laughter.


Available in English or Spanish, the site seems to function much like Club Penguin, with you having your own character – a Pocoyó like personaje- and, by earning tickets by completing games, you can buy pets, furniture etc. It’s a social place as you can interact with other members.

Fun place to visit – and good for playing with another language.

I’m a great fan of Pocoyo – just a shame that Stephen Fry doesn’t do the voiceover for the Spanish version. In the following video, Pocoyo encourages us to join in with La Hora del Planeta.

Tomorrow from 8.30-9.30pm is Earth Hour – when we are encouraged to switch off the lights and vote for the Earth.

A cute clip with a worthwhile message that little things – and little people! – can make a big difference.
