Cartoons for Toddlers

PocoyoDon’t get me wrong, I am fully aware that cartoons and TV do not substitute a mother’s love and attention, but Cartoons have helped me out of a tight scrape more than once!

Because of working in animation, my husband and I might be overly concerned about what our 2-year-old is watching. Movies like “A Bug’s Life” are cutely animated and have a great storyline but are actually quite scary, (and the “grasshopper nightmare” for children even as old as four has become a known phenomenon). So maybe I am being overly protective, but I have been really careful about what my daughter is allowed to watch.

It has also been really hard to find a cartoon that is suitable for a 2-year-old and also well animated and designed, call me an animation snob…

A cartoon that our 2-year-old particularly loves is called “Pocoyo”. It centres around a little boy called Pocoyo and his friends, Ellie the elephant and Pato the duck. The stories are very simple but really engaging and cute. So cute in fact that I actually like to sit and watch them too! The English version is narrated by Stephen Fry, who, I reckon, has one of the best voices on English TV.
