pingu.jpgPingu happily entered our lives nearly two years ago. He is a plasticine penguin who lives at the South Pole and is the main character of a TV series for children. The show is produced in Switzerland using an animation technique called Claynimation (like Wallace&Gromit and Chicken Run).

The short episodes tell the adventures of Pingu and his family and friends. He likes to push boundaries and get in all sort of trouble; he is full of energy, life and love and will immediately win you over!

What I love is that the stories are simple, short and funny … easy to follow for children of any age. Moreover there is no language issue– Pingu and his family speak “penguinese” which is easy to understand (but very hard to speak)!
No matter what … Pingu always manages to cause a warm belly laugh in my older son!

How funny! My daughter was watching these DVD’s with Michela’s son when we were visiting them in Milan – and I thought she was learning Italian, but in fact she was learning Penguinese!!!

So cute! We will have to check it out. I need a break from “Finding Nemo” and “The Incredibles”. Clearly I have a Pixar-obsessed little boy!
Our DVD player broke a few weeks ago, so we downloaded some movies from iTunes. Did you know you can do that? It’s pretty cool…

yes, but you need an american credit card to do that. iTunes in Europe isn’t offering the service yet. I was really disappointed when I found that out! We were so excited about easy access to movies after we visited you guys
