The US Hispanic network The Hispanic Information and Telecommunications Network (HITN) and the Spanish producer Zinkia have won an award for the mobile platform Pocoyo Playset: Let’s Move.

The mobile platform was crowned best educational pre-school app during the recent Kidscreen Summit in Miami.

Based on the animated series Pocoyo, the app was launched last year and has been recommended for preschoolers by the US Department of Education.

Through a number of videos, games and activities, the app helps children to understand the human body and it how it works.

“In this way, children are able to improve their mobility skills, learn more vocabulary, listen and follow instructions, while they are having fun with Pocoyo,” Zinkia said.

As a standalone platform, the app is only available for iOS devices, but it is also integrated with the Pocoyo Playset app for Android mobile screens.
