Not being a huge fan of the Teletubbies I obviously needed to leave the objective reviewing of this DVD to the target audience and see how my children enjoyed this. My Miss Eight is a surprising fan given that this is I imagine aimed at pre-schoolers. Miss six and Miss Four are definitely more the target market.
Not surprisingly they loved it. We had missed the Christmas season by not getting this until late January but that didn't seem to worry my girls at all. They loved the format of the show with each of the seven episodes focussing on a different Christmas activity or aspect of Christmas and really enjoyed some of the clips about decorating the Christmas tree and singing carols. The clarity and quality of the DVD is great and the pace kept the girls interest. The Teletubbies are real favourites of my girls and after watching this they all nominated themselves as a particular Teletubby and stayed in role for ages! So I suppose I should be giving this credit for inspiring some fantastic imaginative play.
I think that this is great to watch in the lead up to Christmas and especially if you have little Teletubby fans in the house. I would definitely recommend it for next Christmas based on my girls reaction to it. I rather suspect Miss Four will be interested in watching it closer to Christmas but am not sure it will be viewed to much before then as Teletubbies Number Fun really has won them over!
