Surprising Emmy with her favorite things never gets old!
Em wears her emotions on her sleeve, I mean her face. You can instantly tell if she is happy, sad, tired and all the other emotions. It is fun to see, especially when she is this thrilled. After school a couple of days ago we told her to sit on the couch and we filled her arms with some really fun Teletubbies toys and a new DVD. These were all sent to us so that we could write this sponsored post, and we didn’t tell her they were coming. After everything was in place, we told her to open her eyes. I think the look on her face says it all!
Did you know that this year marks the 20th anniversary of Teletubbies? I remember when Maddie, our 16 year old started watching Teletubbies and how much she loved it. It has been so fun seeing Ashley and then Emmy enjoy them too! For today’s little ones, there is a new, reimagined Teletubbies series that airs on Nick Jr. weekdays at 8 am since it’s premiere last May. Now, they are gearing up for their second season coming to Nick Jr. later this year! If you can’t wait that long, and I know most kids can’t, you will be happy to hear that there is a new DVD, TELETUBBIES: BIG HUGS that has six all-new episodes! Featuring the Teletubbies Singing the All-New Song “Big Hugs” and Tons of All-New Bonus Content!
Here is more about the DVD:
The Teletubbies love to make new friends and they love big hugs! Join Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po as they splash in puddles, ride the Custard Train and watch Tummy Tales. Episodes include: Making Friends, Watering Can, Up and Down, Favorite Things, Babies, and Hiding. The bonus features include the famous “Big Hugs” Song, a meet the Characters with Po, and a meet Daniel Rigby part. We had fun watching the episodes together and loved how the new episodes appeal to today’s tech-savvy toddlers, through relatable storylines and new, high-tech features, like the Teletubbies’ Touch-Screen Tummies and a Tubby Phone smartphone.
Emmy really loved being able to snuggle up with her new cuddly, soft plush toys while she watched BIG HUGS.
After watching some episodes she decided to take her new toy friends out on an adventure outside. She also was planning some fun for the next time her two-year-old cousin was over, knowing that he would love to watch BIG HUGS and playing with the toys. Maddie was also really jealous that they didn’t have all of these toys when she was little, but she is happy that come Spring 2017, Teletubbies fans will be able to buy these at major retailers.
The Po above is from the collection, Teletubbies 11” Jumping Laa-Laa, and Jumping Po Plush. With it, Kids can giggle with Laa-Laa or Po (sold separately) as they jump up and down. This super cute soft toy has authentic Teletubbies styling and is very lively. Press the tummy screen to see the character jump up and down as they giggle, sing their special song and say fun phrases from the TV show. Recommended ages 18 months+ with an MSRP of $29.99.
Em thought this was “awesome” and that it made them “come to life”!
Next up was the Teletubbies Laugh & Giggle Plush Time for Teletubbies! You can collect these Laugh & Giggle plush Teletubbies for tons of laughter and fun.

The more they are tickled, the more they laugh! Perfect for ages 18 months+ with an MSRP of $19.99. I can’t even tell you how much Em loved this one. She was cracking up along with Laa-Laa for a good while. When she was littler I could totally see her playing with this for hours at a time!

These little cuties are for those 18 months+ with an MSRP of $7.99.
I wasn’t kidding that she LOVES them.
There was cuddling, smooching, and tons of playing going on with them. She even set them up with blankets on her bed to sleep when it was bedtime. She had planned to share these with her cousin, but changed her mind and decided that they needed to stay with her.
I love when we find toys that compliment programming they love to watch on TV so that it can come alive to them and encourage creative play!
