December 14th of 1954: This was a very important day for ALL the children in the world. This day, the UN General Assembly suggested to all countries to create an annual event to defend children and protect the children welfare all around the world. Many of the countries recognized this day, and they established the date of November 20th.
This Children’s Day was a must in our society, where all over the world thousands of them are under terrible standard of living. Thanks to this international initiative, many schools and institutions make special campaigns and events to inform them of their rights. Pocoyo could not be less… and here you have our nice reminder:
Zinkia Entertainment’s Pocoyo partners with UNICEF to support Universal Children’s Day, November 20, 2011.
The United Nations’ Universal Children’s Day was established in 1954, and is celebrated on November 20 each year to promote international togetherness and awareness among children worldwide. UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, promotes and coordinates this special day, which also works towards improving children’s welfare.
This year, Zinkia’s flagship character Pocoyo is lending his support to raise global awareness for childrens’ rights!
Join us to help celebrate Universal Children’s Day and raise global awareness for children’s rights.

Today is February 29th. It’s a unique day that happens only every 4 years. For this reason, Pato is explaining to Pocoyo what Leap Year is: Pato: How many seconds are there in 1 minute?
Pocoyo: 60 seconds!
Pato: And how many minutes are there in 1 hour?
Pocoyo: 60 minutes!
Pato: Good… and how many days are there in 1 Year?
Pocoyo: 365 days!! (Pocoyo shouts this aloud, quite sure that he is right)
Pato: Not always!! Sometimes 1 Year takes 366 days instead of 365 days…
Pocoyo: Wowww! How is this possible?
Pato: Because 2012 is a Leap Year!
Pocoyo: A what year?! Pato: A Leap Year. It’s a year containing one additional day. It happens every 4 years.
Pocoyo: Ohh! So this year we can do many more things because we have one more day. Am I right Pato?
Pato: You’re right Pocoyo! And what do you want to do with this extra day…?
Pocoyo: Hmmm…I really don’t know….. Oh, I know, I know – let’s use it to just play and have fun all day long!!
POCOYO and his friends Elly, Loula, Pato, Sleepy Bird, Little Bird, Caterpillar and Fred certainly have been working harder today. They’ve posted 60 videos to the POCOYO YouTube channel (http://bit.ly/wzwwQJ) so that you can watch and play along with them whenever you want, providing your parents say it’s okay, of course. That means that if you missed the latest POCOYO episode on Nick Jr. either weekdays at 4p.m./1p.m. (eastern/pacific) or on weekends at 1p.m./10a.m. (eastern/pacific), or on Univision’s Planeta U on Saturday mornings at 8:30a.m., you can ask your parents to go online and visit POCOYO YouTube’s channel and still join POCOYO and his friends in their fun adventures. And you can spend today working harder to enjoy POCOYO!
But now that the holidays are over and the New Year has begun, it’s time to have some fun! How about visiting POCOYO’s website and playing some fun games? You can have your parents help you go to http://www.pocoyo.com/en/craft-projects and download all the fun games that you can play at home. There’s one game where you try to match the footprints to the character that created them. Sometimes things look like they are easy to do, but don’t be fooled. Then you can download fun drawings to color, or you can learn to write your letters with POCOYO or Elly. You can also make a friendship box or you can try and find your way through the race maze. There’s so many fun ways to spend time with POCOYO and his friends.
Today is National Bird Day. This is a day when you can celebrate every bird you can see, or maybe even one or two special birds. Pocoyo is planning a special party today for Sleepy Bird and Little Bird. He’s going to sing them a song and make up a special dance to show them how special they are.
Did you know that each type of bird has a special song or sound that it makes and also has special colored feathers or something else that makes it stand out from the other types of birds? You can celebrate National Bird Day by trying to identify as many wild birds as you can in your neighborhood. Then you can ask your parents to help you download the coloring page at http://www.nationalbirdday.com/popups/coloring_art.php. After you color the birds on this page, have your parents help you post it to the Pocoyo Facebook page as a way to say Happy National Bird Day to Sleepy Bird and Little Bird.
Pocoyo is so excited to start a brand new year — HAPPY 2012 EVERYONE! Did you try to stay up until midnight on Saturday, so you could be awake for the very first minute of the brand new year? Pocoyo, Elly, Pato, Loula tried to stay awake, but they didn’t make it. Sleepy Bird didn’t even try! And even though they all woke up when fireworks went off to celebrate the New Year, no one bothered to get out of bed.
One of the many wonderful things about a new year is the chance to make changes in your habits, the way you do things, so that you can improve yourself and your life. It’s kind of like when you do something naughty and then ask mom or dad for a fresh start.
For example, some people start the New Year by promising to eat healthier because maybe they ate too much candy over the holidays. Some people promise to play more and have more fun because they spent too much time working in the old year. These promises are called “resolutions.” Do you have anything that you want to do better in the new year? Pocoyo’s New Year’s resolution is to have more fun and adventures with his friends. And he hopes your New Year’s resolution is to join him every day!
