Hit pre-school series Pocoyo, distributed by ITV Worldwide and Zinkia, has added a Parents' Choice award to its trophy cabinet.

Pocoyo: Fun & Dance with Pocoyo was recognised in the DVD category at the Small Screen Parents' Choice Awards in the US.

The older non-profit guide in the US to children's media and toys, Parents' Choice is used by millions as a guide to products that are fun, safe and socially sound. The awards are selected by the Parents' Choice Foundation's panel of educators, scientists, performing artists, librarians, parents and children.

Among other awards Pocoyo now has are Best Pre-School Animation at the British Academy Children's Film and Television Awards, plus Best TV Production at The Annecy International Animation Festival.

Giles Ridge, head of brand and product development at ITV Worldwide, said: "This is a fantastic international honour for Pocoyo as we continue to roll the brand out across the world."
