It was inevitable that at some point my children would come across the Teletubbies. I did think we had avoided it when Emmy showed no interest in it at all however when we cancelled our Sky package recently and that coincided with our internet issues we were then left with Freeview therefore watched CBeebies again and Harry was instantly glued when it came on.
By the end of episode one he knew all the character’s names and was retelling them to his Sister and Dad and it was rather cute. When he asked to watch it again the following day we knew he had another new favourite show.
The new series bounced back onto our screens on the CBeebies channel last November and has been wooing it younger audience all over again after all these years – my Nephew, Harry’s eldest cousin was Teletubbies obsessed when he was a similar age, he is now 19 years old!
Aimed at a young audience the Teletubbies engages this young audience through simple language, bright colours and fun scenes. Children will be able to repeat the words and actions of these characters, copy their dances and join in with the songs, and of course give each other and you a ‘Big Hug’.
The Telebubbies Pocket Library consists of 6 mini story board books and is priced at just £3.99.
Each of these books has a mini story about each of the shows characters:
- Tinky Winky
- The Noo-noo
- The Custard Machine
Each is a mini board book with 4 pages of writing and colourful pictures to illustrate. On the back of each is a picture which when placed together form a larger picture made up of the 6 books.
Teletubbies: Magic Watering Can is also a board book only a medium sized book priced at £4.99
This tells the story of Po’s watering can, a magic watering can because everything she waters with it then grows.
With vivid bright colours and one page of writing per double page this is a lovely book for children and while Harry can’t yet read it is easy for him to follow the storyline and for Emmy to read to him at bedtimes.
Teletubbies: Favourite Things, another board book priced at £4.99
This story talks about all of the Teletubbies favourite items such as Tinky Winky’s handbag, Dipsy’s Hat and Po’s scooter but sadly Laa-Laa has lost her favourite thing. Her friends then help her to find them. Not wanting to give the storyline away but let’s say it has a happy ending!
Harry isn’t able to read these stories himself as he is only 3 however he happily repeats all of the repetitive words and guess what will come next.
Emmy although not a fan of the show has really enjoyed reading these to her brother and interactiving together with him – singing the Teletubbies songs together and of course giving each other those much important ‘Big Hugs’
Of course anything which gets Harry sitting down for longer than 5 minutes at a time is a huge winner for me!
