There were lots of episodes to keep the children amused, mainly my 3 year old as my 6 year old felt he was ‘too old’ for some of them, although he did watch Topsy and Tim and enjoyed it! The DVD is a mix of colour and fun, songs to sing along to and interesting facts.
It was the first time my daughter had seen Teletubbies and she enjoyed it. I remember watching it with my first child many years ago. Eek makes me sound old!! Her favourite though is In the Night Garden.
The DVD was a hit with us and the children watched it in bits rather than the full thing all in one go as I found it held their attention better this way.
The collection features the following episodes:-
Teletubbies – Join Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po as they exploreHome Dome and the magical countryside of Teletubbyland through play. In New Toythe children in Tummy Tales play a game of pass the parcel and win a surprise toy, while the Dup Dup delivers toys for the Teletubbies to play with. Even Noo-Noo enjoys a new treat!
