We like to watch shows with our 1 year old before bedtime, and remembering Teletubbies fondly from my student days (ahem!) I picked this DVD up to watch together. Unfortunately, the content of the DVD doesn't appear to be split up in to episodes in the traditional format, but is one long playing feature. I feel this is a bit of a mistake, as the content doesn't lend itself to 10-15 minute chunks of viewing, book-ended by title and end-credit songs (which I feel helps add a bit of structure for the little ones). So instead we find we have to watch the content for 10 minutes or so before stopping the playback manually, which can feel a bit of a jarring end to some relaxing TV viewing. It's a shame because the actual content is as fun and bonkers as I remember it to be from my hungover viewing as a student in the 90s.
Grand daughter for some unknown reason likes the teletubbies and has the plush toys which she keeps in her cot. I cant fathom what the hell they are on about, and quite frankly would rather watch the test card, but this amazingly keeps a crotchety, bad tempered little madam amused for ages and she loves it.
My 2-year old daughter was bored by this DVD though she continues to be delighted in other Teletubbies DVDs. Not much really happens and everything seems to take too long. Also we had some problems with the DVD itself which didn't work properly in a couple of the scenes.
