I can still remember the smiles and giggles that would radiate from my niece and nephew when watching the Teletubbies back in the 90s. It was the go-to show when babysitting. Now I get to see those sweet smiles again with my children. September 2017 I got my hands on a newly released DVD, Teletubbies: Follow the Leader. It includes six all new episodes plus a super cute special feature of Tinky Winky.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to watch the series I can break it down for you. Teletubbies are these lovable, vibrantly colored little fellows named; Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po. Funny names? Yes. But just wait till your little ones can say there names, its just too cute! Okay, so they like to explore, laugh, play, sing and dance. But also use creative learning experiences that are fun for kids. The DVD also encourages early social skills, including taking turns, physical activity and coordination. The core of the show has remained the same after 20 years except for the addition of some new high-tech gadgets for the new generation of littles. Items such as Touch-Screen Tummies and a Tubby Phone smart phone are all new to the series.
The series to me seems geared toward preschool aged children, which would be my eldest sons demographic but I was pleasantly surprised it held the attention of my twins who are just under a year old. I have my hands full 24/7 so being able to put something on that I know is amusing, wholesome entertainment while I make dinner or change out laundry is a life saver.
By the third episode my son was singing along, directing our attention to the characters while repeating names. And every time they would hug on the show my son would hug either myself or the twins. Which of course melted this mommy’s heart. Whether your a Parent, Grandparent, Daycare Provider, anyone with kids running around, Teletubbies: Follow the Leader DVD is certainly something to have on hand for your little ones. You can find it online at www.teletubbies.com along with kids games and coloring pages. You can also catch episodes on Nick Jr.
