Mirko is a four-year-old boy who lives with his parents and his grandmother Oma, for whom he feels great affection. Mirko likes to plant fruits and vegetables, play soccer with friends, cook, play with animals, among other things. Oma gives him a pillow that she tells him will keep her more present in his life, and that will also take him to a world full of discoveries! This pillow and his plush dinosaur Dindi will accompany Mirko to live a lot of adventures and learn ways to deal with feelings typical of childhood.
The show will take into account research on emotional intelligence in child development. According to author, psychologist and science journalist Daniel Goleman: "Emotional intelligence is a way of interacting with the world that takes into account feelings and encompasses skills such as impulse control, self-awareness, motivation, enthusiasm, perseverance, empathy and mental agility. They configure character traits such as self-discipline, compassion or altruism, which are essential for good and creative social adaptation."
The series is inspired on the children's book Kisse, written by argetine author Marley and published by Planeta Junior.
