Disclosure: I was sent a review copy from NCircle Entertainment in order to write up an honest review.  The views shared are mine and mine alone.

"Pocoyo airs daily on NickJr and on Univision and is perfect for preschool age children.  Pocoyo is a little boy who is figuring out the world around him with his friends.  The show is bright, colorful, easy to understand, engaging, and all ages are entertained by the clever humor and adorable animation.  In Pocoyo’s Circus, Pocoyo and his friends go on a new fun-filled circus adventure!  One day a group of curious aliens arrive in Pocoyo's world.  Pocoyo soon realizes that these new friends are not just any aliens; in fact, they are circus aliens! Their new friends treat Pocoyo and the gang to a free day at the circus, where Pocoyo and his friends must work together to help save the show! 

About the DVD:

Join Pocoyo and his friends on 8 fun filled adventures including Vamoosh on the Loosh, Pocoyo’s Circus, and Mystery Footprints.

My Thoughts:
I am noticing more and more hit television children's television shows are releasing direct to DVD movies, like this new release from NCircle Entertainment, Pocoyo's Circus.  So, if you are a parent or grandparent, you will want to keep up with these releases by visiting official websites and doing searching through online retailers to see if new films will be released this fall and winter.  Most of the DVD releases are reasonably priced, like this one, which can be purchased for around $12.99, making them great stocking stuffer ideas, or movies to surprise the family with for family movie nights.

I ended up showing the girls this new DVD release on yesterday, and told them they would have to wait until Saturday for us to watch it.  You should have seen the look on their faces, as they were hoping I would tell them we would be watching it sooner.  Don't tell them, but I was joking with them on the viewing date, as I knew that after I showed it to them, that they would not stop asking if they could watch it.  So, after lunch the other day, I told them they could watch their one movie a day, and they chose another NCircle Entertainment favorite, "  ".  As they sat on the couch waiting for the movie to start, I put in Pocoyo's Circus instead.  When they saw Pocoyo appear on the screen, they couldn't stop screaming with excitement.  And, for the next 80 minutes, their attention stayed on the television as they watched this new DVD which featured the following seven short stories:

  • Mystery Footprints
  • Pocoyo's Balloon
  • Who's Calling Me Now?
  • Vamoosh on the Loosh
  • New on the Planet
  • Mad Mix Machine
  • Remember When
 Out of the seven episodes, both of my girls agreed that "Pocoyo's Balloon" was their favorite.  If you haven't seen this hit animated series, here is a little background on the show -- "Set in a 3D space, with a plain white background and usually no backdrops, it is about Pocoyo, a 3-year-old boy, interacting with his friends Pato (a duck), Elly (an elephant) and Loula (a dog). Viewers are encouraged to recognise situations that Pocoyo is in, and things that are going on with or around him. The narrator usually speaks explicitly to the viewers and to the characters as well. Each character has its own distinctive dance and also a specific sound (usually from a musical instrument), and most episodes end with the characters dancing. Many episodes also involve parties."

I have included "Pocoyo's Balloon" below from YouTube for your viewing pleasure. Maybe it will become you and your child's favorite episode from this popular children's series, too. :-)

If you enjoyed this episode, then you will want to pick up the new DVD release from NCircle Entertainment, "Pocoyo's Circus," which contains this and six other fun filled Pocoyo episodes.


Available at Toys”R”Us, Kmart, Target, and as of 8/27/2013, with a suggested retail price of $12.99.
