Pocoyo Playset: Let's Move features the popular title character and a cast of his familiar friends who take a charming approach to learning English and Spanish words that describe different kinds of movement. Get Moving is an electronic board game that teaches vocabulary by asking short questions and presenting brief platform-style activities (e.g., climb a ladder, go through a tunnel, etc.). The games can be played alone or with others and are available in a variety of levels. In Pocoyo Says, children practice and hone attention and careful listening skills as they are only to act out instructions preceded by "Pocoyo Says." The Word Machine presents short English/Spanish videos that introduce children to a range of action words (e.g., swinging, crawling, etc.). And, in the Story Maker mode, children place a variety of character and object stickers on several settings to create their own stories. A well-designed, well-paced, and well-rounded vocabulary game.
