Pocoyo Let's Party DVD Review and Giveaway!


How many of you are exhausted at the end of a children's birthday party?  I know I am!  Whether your hosting or just visiting, it's still an exhausting adventure either way!  Ashton's birthday was today and we just had a simple family get together and as soon as we stepped foot in the house it hit me like a ton of bricks.  Luckily, when I checked the mail this afternoon I found this wonderful Pocoyo "Let's Party!" DVD and told Ashton we were going to have some quiet time.  He sat down in front of the T.V. and became glued to the adorable Pocoyo DVD and since we were just partying ourselves it just seemed fit to watch this DVD during our after party quiet time.
So who is Pocoyo?
According to the press release, "Recognized as a global hit property, Pocoyo airs in the U.S. on Nick Jr., P.B.S. and Univision. Pocoyo has generated more than 400 million hits on YouTube (www.youtube.com/pocoyo) and has amassed more than 27.5 million content downloads from the official Pocoyo website (www.pocoyo.com) since the CGI animated television series first debuted in the UK in 2005.  Currently licensed to air in more than 150 territories worldwide, Pocoyo has earned a host of international accolades including the prestigious BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) for Best Animated Preschool Series, three Pucinella Prizes at Italy's Cartoons on the Bay Festival and Best TV series at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival in France. 



About the DVD: Pocoyo is a curious little boy with a big personality.  He explores the world around him by creating great adventures with his friends Pato, Elly, Loula and Sleepy Bird. Join the party with Pocoyo and his friends as they celebrate a birthday party, a welcome home party, a tea party and other adorable adventures that encourage learning through laughter in "Let's Party." The 90 minute DVD includes the following Pocoyo episodes (and Spanish track):
Who's on the Phone?
Whale's Birthday
Pocoyo's Puppet Show
Party Pooper
Everybody's Present
Pocoyo's Present
The Great Race
Elly's Tea Party
Pato Underwater
Baby Bird Bother
A Present for Elly
Farewell Friends

My Review
So it's about 5pm and I'm exhausted, Ashton seems pretty tired himself and Josh is already in bed about 15 minutes after we get home (Thanks for all your help honey!) so before I go crazy I need to relax.  As I mentioned earlier, we received a wonderful Pocoyo DVD in the mail this morning so I put it on for Ashton and told him it was quiet time now.  I layed out some blankets and pillows on the living room floor, got comfy and put the movie in.  After the movie was over I asked Ashton what he thought.  I was pretty surprised to find that Ashton loved it!  I kind of expected him to say he was too old for it, but no!  He asked if he could watch it again before bed tonight!  Even though Ashton isn't preschool age anymore he still enjoyed Pocoyo and his fun adventures so I'm sure preschool aged children would love this DVD!  It's 90 minutes long which was perfect for me to lay on the couch next to him, watch the movie too and just relax.  Overall this was a throughly enjoyable DVD for Ashton and I to watch together.  I'm going to start a rating scale for each product I review, one out of five shopping bags, five being the best.  Ashton and I gave this DVD 4 and a half shopping bags!  It was full of fun and the perfect DVD to watch after an exciting day of partying!
Shopaholic Rating: 4 and a half shopping bags out of 5
