Doki (partially found educational PC games based off Latin American Discovery Kids mascot; 2009)
Doki is a series of PC games based on Discovery Kids's mascot of the same name released in Brazil on September 29, 2009. These involve three educational games available through CD-ROMs, retailing at a price of R$49,00 (roughly about $9,15 in USD). CD-ROMs for these games are currently out of stock, and only one of them has an ISO available on the internet.

- Doki Maternal[nb 1]: 2-4 years
- Doki Jardim (Doki Garden): 3-5 years
NOTE: Due to these games being lost, very little info is known about the activities from games in the series. As a result, this section only covers the activities from Doki Maternal, as that is the only one to have its activities known.
The activity consists of helping Doki avoid obstacles with a skateboard.
The activity consists of helping Doki assemble a nutritious dish or identify the food he wants to eat.
The activity is self-explanatory. It allows scheduling, meant for when the child must do something important.
The activity is about cleaning Doki's room by moving objects to different places in order to make it better organized.
These games have been lost for a long time, and didn't get much attention until circa late 2021, when a community post was posted by the Chilean YouTube channel LucianoTheWindowsFan helping people to find them.
On November 27, 2022, a Brazilian blog named Games&Cigarettes posted Doki Maternal to the Internet Archive, making said game found. The rest of the games remain lost however.
Interestingly, the games are protected by SecuROM, making them incompatible with Windows 10 and newer. As of June 2023, the games aren't yet cracked.
TecMundo praised the game for its interesting graphics as well as the fact that the repetitive activities and levels make the child fix better, but criticized it for its non-attractive price as well as its repetitive voices and unskippable dialogue.
