Terrific Tot Sites ~

If I haven't mentioned it before, let it forever be known that I am a sucker for cute graphics. Forget letting my kids use the computer ~ I might just get carried away with all the fun games while I am {ahem} looking for great sites for them.

I ran across a site called recently and Tell me that these are not the cutest little characters!

Pocoyo is a cartoon series {pocoyo roughly means 'little me' in Spanish} that features the main characters of Pocoyo, a little boy; Pato, his duck; Loula, his dog; Sleeping Bird, and Ellie, his elephant.

You can choose which language you would like to view the Pocoyo site in, including German, Spanish, English, Chinese, and so many more! Under the games tab there are only three games listed, but they managed to capture my attention for quite some time {sad, but true!}.

In the camera game, kids choose the object that the close-up picture represents.

Your child can control who dances to the music with the little radio. Each button controls a different character.

Pairs is a simple matching game.

Each character also has a little tab on the top navigation bar where you can learn more about them and do activities relating to that character. There are simple crafts, coloring sheets, printable activity sheets {including mazes & matching games}. offers three video clips of the show that you can watch in a movie theater setting {just click on the cinema tab near the bottom of the page}. There are also some cute ecards, wallpaper and screensavers you can download too...should your children {or you} grow attached to the cute little boy.

And as an added bonus, you can set a little play timer on the bottom right of the page to automatically go off after so many minutes. It doesn't shut the games down, but at least helps give a warning to kids that it's time to stop.

Hope you enjoy this Terrific Tot Site! To see more featured sites, click here!
