Little kids adore Teletubbies don't they? Have you ever watched how fascinated and mesmerised young kids become when watching this popular early-learning children's series? I have always found it amusing to observe my own kids over the years as they interacted with this show. To this day, even the older ones sit open-mouthed and absorbed if they find themselves watching Teletubbies on TV!
Given that fact, I had a bit of a giggle compiling these pictures of my youngest discovering her new Teletubbies toy for this post.
My daughter was just so delighted when I gave her this new piece of Teletubbies fun to play with!
These images of her excitement remind me of the first time I ever saw Teletubbies merchandise at a store back in 2001.
I was pushing my firstborn daughter along the street (a toddler too at the time), when we spotted Po the red Teletubby, beaming at us from a children's store window. Well, we were in there in seconds and Po was purchased on the spot, ours to keep forever.
That memorable moment was our first-ever brush with the Teletubbies. What made it so memorable was that same excitement and cuteness I see displayed in these images. Kids come alive in the sweetest of ways over this show and Cuddly Po is still about our home 16 years later, having since done the rounds six times over.
To say our little Celeste is a Teletubbies fan is an understatement. She easily shows as much crazed enthusiasm as her siblings did when they too, were very little. Actually, our Teletubbies collection is quite a large one to this day and remains popular with us all regardless of age. (There was a lot of general distress when our talking Makka Pakka went missing for a year in our garage. He's been found again and is all safe and sound now.)
Not surprisingly, we were very excited to learn that Teletubbies have launched their first new toy range in almost two decades. For new little fans of the show, this is a very exciting thing indeed. (Just check out that smile!) For those of us that have been around the block a few times as parents, it's a wonderful memory-inducing event too.
Prior to now, most parents of young Teletubbies fanatics had to bid like mad on Ebay to find a coveted pre-loved toy for their little enthusiast. (Ahem...yes I have personally done this many times over the years.) Now, we can enjoy a whole new range of fun Teletubbies-themed playthings without that stress.
Just as you would expect from this popular, educational television series for very young kids, the toys in the range are crafted with exciting and interactive experiences that support the idea of learning through play. There are lots of colours, sounds and fiddly-bits for kids to discover.
We were sent the Teletubbies Pull-Along Custard Ride to try. (RRP $79.99.) This fun toy allows kids to re-create scenes from their favourite TV show. It's an adorable and inherently happy plaything in every sense.
Pull-along the Teletubbies train and see it light-up while it plays the theme music from the TV series. At the push of a button, kids can hear the engaging sounds used in the show. The cutest part of all is watching the Teletubbies themselves. As your child tows the train, the Teletubbies spin about in their little seats. There is so much detail. The Teletubbies can also be arranged in any order for towing on all kinds of imaginative adventures.
There are several great items available in the new range including talking plush Teletubbies and a Superdome play set. The Teletubbies range is priced from $10.99 and can be found at leading toy retailers around Australia. We're in love!
