What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Pocoyo: Pocoyo Fiesta is a 60-minute DVD filled with the adventures of Pocoyo and his friends; these tales were not previously shown on the Pocoyo TV show. Each segment is short and sweet and contains fun, peppy songs that will appeal to music-loving preschoolers.

What's the story?

Along with his buddies Pato the duck, Elly the elephant, Loula the dog, and Sleepy Bird, 4-year-old Pocoyo uses his imagination to discover different things about the world in POCOYO: POCOYO FIESTA. Along with the help of the narrator (voiced by Stephen Fry), Pocoyo and his friends learn about ways to travel, throw a birthday party for Elly, compete in a car race, and more, all while dancing to upbeat -- and often silly -- tunes.

Is it any good?

Although Pocoyo Fiesta probably will be quite boring (and loud!) to adults, preschoolers no doubt will find the fun and silly songs infectious. There's not much of a plot to most of the segments (and this collection lacks some of the lessons the Pocoyo series usually teaches), but the music is peppy and will have kids bouncing in their seats. The narrator even encourages kids to get up and dance in many of the songs, one of which features a fun "Simon Says" format that will have viewers jumping around. And the DVD does a nice job of interacting with young viewers, asking them questions and encouraging them to learn and discover along with Pocoyo.

Parents no doubt will appreciate the simplicity and wholesomeness of the series, which manages to show friends playing nicely without being overly saccharine. Kids will love exploring their imaginations with Pocoyo and company or, at the very least, have fun having a dance party while following along.
