School is out for the summer, which means your kid’s are home and looking to be entertained. While outdoor activities and keeping your child busy outside of ‘screen time’ is extremely important, sometimes all your little ones want to do is plop themselves on the couch and take some time to relax from the school year.
Finding child appropriate television shows can be hard, which is why we are so excited that the beloved Teletubbies return for a second season filled with laughter, learning and fun on Family Jr. this summer. The new season brings exciting changes for the iconic foursome – Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po – who discover new areas of Teletubbyland, extend their friendship to the adorable Tiddlytubbies and ride on the brand new honk honk Tubby Car.
Teletubbies continues to reflect children’s real life experiences as the four iconic characters forge meaningful bonds with their tiny friends, the Tiddlytubbies. The lovable interaction between the Teletubbies and Tiddlytubbies reinforces the positive values of nurturing, caring and love. Season two also introduces viewers to a new area of Teletubbyland, the Hidey Hup, a beautiful hidden glade where Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po discover the Tubby Bouncy, Tubby Slidey and Tubby Spinny – equipment that inspires loads of physical Teletubby fun. Although the Hidey Hup is over the hills and far away, the Teletubbies have their brand new honk honk Tubby Car to get them there!
