Pin Pón Es un Muñeco

Ian, my son still asks me to sing this canción infantil for him when I put him to bed.

One of the most important traditions we have at home is singing before bed time. I guess singing sooths our son, for me, it is a perfect time to keep Latin culture alive.

I guess Pin Pón became one of his favorite songs because I started altering the words to replace them with his name, and make Pin Pón Ian by singing: “Ian es un muñeco muy guapo y de cartón se lava la carita con agua y con jabón…” intead of “Pin Pón es un muñeco…”

Tips when teaching this song:

  • Teach the complete song before you start replacing the words with your child’s name.
  • Repetition is key.
  • Use this song when taking a bath or shower. It is the perfect time to sing and wash your face. Also bring a comb or peine to practice and act the entire song. Kids love acting!


Pin Pón es un muñeco
muy guapo y de cartón
se lava la carita con agua y con jabón. Repeat

Pin Pón siempre se peina con peine de marfil
y aunque se hace tirones no llora ni se hace así. Repeat

Pin Pón dame la mano
con un fuerte apretón
yo quiero ser tu amigo Pin Pón, Pin Pón, Pin Pón.

Pin Pón dame la mano
con un fuerte apreton
que quiero ser tu amigo Pin Pón, Pin Pón, Pin Pón.

This last verse is not included in the video
Y cuando las estrellas comienzan a salir
Pin Pón se va a la cama
Pin Pón se va a dormir.
