A castle of excitement

My cousin always wanted to live in a castle like a true princess! Needless to say that each time that she built her own—with a few carefully placed cardboard boxes—her cousins tore her castle down, only to rebuild it as their own! For us, it was simply a game.

A short time ago, I had lunch with my two cousins and we ended up talking about our childhood adventures, and in particular, our cousin’s disappointment at having her Continue reading

Halloween!

Halloween has spread outside the borders of the US and now is becoming a tradition in many other countries, which intends to scare people in a funny way. So this year, for the second time in a row, we have decided to recreate this moment at www.pocoyoworld.com with costumes of vampires and witches in many colors, talking pumpkins, funny spiders and friendly ghosts to give other kids a terrible fright. According to experts, celebrations such as Halloween help kids humanize their fears and overcome any possible anxiety. Here at Zinkia, more than one of us still sleep with the lights on! :-)

Pocoyo World figurines

You can’t even imagine how cool the collectable Pocoyo figurines are that Panini have just launched in Spain! A set of around thirty figurines have been developed, based on the virtual game environment of Pocoyo World and it’s a fact that we are all crazy about them here in Zinkia :-)

We all remember perfectly the excitement of opening a pack of picture cards when we were children. Walking hand in hand with your father, asking the shopkeeper for them, and fondling them before opening them up. Ahhhhhhh, opening them! More than a mere ritual, it is an experience. It almost becomes a necessity. Opening a pack without knowing what awaits you inside is unbeatable.

And if in this case, you find one of the most carefully, well-made and attractive Pocoyo products that are just off the shelf, it´s the icing on the cake. We believe that they will be a hit with the kids, but adults alike will also be smitten. In each individual pack, we will meet Pocoyo, in several poses, surrounded by his friends and dressed in several ways. There are also several figurines of Elly and Pato, as well as Sleepy Bird and Loula. Other attractive figurines are the Avatars of Pocoyo World, dressed up in a range of costumes (such as firemen, indians etc) and suits.

Oh! As you should also know, every pack, besides having a figurine from Pocoyo World, also contains a collectable card that forms part of two games (of memory and skill) and a code that allows you to enjoy five complementary days as a Club Premium member of Pocoyo World as well as obtaining exclusive pets, vehicles and fancy dress for your character in this virtual game. It´s amazing! XDD
