Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po live in a magical world where nothing seems real, but when a magic wind blows, a windmill shows them glimpses of 'real life'.
Here comes Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po! The colourful, chubby, futuristic foursome get up to lots of adventures in this early collection of Teletubbies
stories, with plenty of the wonderfully intriguing sounds--from the giggles of the Sun Baby, to the slurping sounds of Noo-Noo, to the "tuning" noise of the loudspeakers--that are the trademark of this BBC show, expertly created to capture the attention of babies and pre-school toddlers. Here Come the Teletubbies
is the perfect first video to introduce youngsters to the show, with lots of short stories containing some Teletubby favourites--the tubby toast machine goes berserk and throws toast everywhere
, the magic rain cloud appears and makes puddles to splash in, a surreal, computer-generated animal parade marches across the valley, Po makes a trail of tubby custard all over Tubby land and then falls over all the time. There are, of course, two short films of real-life children, from the TV-tummy of the Tubbies, that make this such fun for older toddlers too. --Alison Jardine
