We thought we'd be smart and get our daughter 'hooked' on only TV shows that we don't find annoying. Unfortunate, we didn't realize that Pocoyo merchandise is nearly impossible to come by these days so I bit the bullet and decided to try to make Pocoyo for her:

I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, although this is actually about the 3rd body and 4th head before I got his top right or his head (somewhat) proportional to his body. I'm not very experienced in crochet at all (3rd project), so it was certainly a learning experience.

Here's what I mean about not getting things proportional (that's the same body, different head):

I also couldn't figure out why my camera wasn't focusing until I found someone's little tiny fingerprints all over the lens.

Daughter enjoying Pocoyo:

She loves the camera a bit too much to get any good shots because she'll drop whatever she's doing if she sees the camera and tries to either put more fingerprints on the lens or see the picture of herself. Like this:

For those who don't know this wonderful little show, this is Pocoyo and his friends:

Great job! I love Pocoyo too!  Your daughter is adorable, and you made an awesome gift for her.  Grin

I had no idea who this little guy was, but he was adorable, so I looked him up on Google.  It looks just like him!  And what a great job you did, especially for it being only your 3rd project!  

And you shaped it all on your own!  Jeeeeez.  I can shape in knitting but I've been doing it for 7 years... haven't attempted much shaping in crochet.  I can follow a pattern just fine, but doing it myself scares me.  Tongue  You are brave.  Cheesy

Turned out really good! 

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone!

I had no idea who this little guy was, but he was adorable, so I looked him up on Google. 
I forget that not everyone knows (and loves) Pocoyo. Our daughter could say all their names before she even said Mama so we've been living and breathing Pocoyo for a while. (And just in case anyone's worried, episodes are less than 10 minutes a piece and she doesn't often see more than one or two a day)

I'll edit the first post to add a picture for those who don't know.

I can follow a pattern just fine, but doing it myself scares me.  Tongue  You are brave.  Cheesy
I have the opposite problem - patterns scare me!

only your third project?!  so good! Cheesy
Thanks, but for the number of times I frogged and redid it, I think it counts as projects 3-7. For once my pigheaded stuburn nature paid off.

I love to crochet but am not so savvy on the computer.  Is there a pattern for your Pocoyo doll?

Sorry, I don't. I just winged it and made it up as I went. Took a few attempts.

I have seen some patterns available for purchase on Etsy though:
