User Reviews

artistic and beautiful; perfect for children
7 July 2005 | by mademoiselle_endSee all my reviews

This show is a little gem and I do recommend that parents try to find this DVD. It's a nice break from the stupidity that I keep on seeing on TV aimed at kids. Jazz music, soft voices, happy colours, it's a little piece of heaven. If i had children, I would make them watch this. It is a brilliant way to help educate and entertain toddlers. They have a way of helping kids cope with frustration which is the case with a lot of them. Moreso, the songs are catchy and easy to remember.

What really surprised me was the use of off-screen children that talk to Poko and he seems to hear them. This allows for a fun interaction. The viewer kid would feel that he or she is part of the bunch of kids talking to Poko.

Of course, I also recommend that the adults step out of the room while the infants watch this, as it can get a bit too cute and cuddly and can turn some parents violent, or so one would imagine (the Teletubbies syndrome). (This is for children under five, I would imagine.)
