Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa Laa, Po – four names that are etched in British kids TV history. They absolutely dominated kids TV during the late 90’s thanks to their original format and incredibly unique style and language. It’s time to say “Eh Oh” once more as they are back and have their own cool new magazine on the shelves.
We were lucky to be sent a copy of the magazine which retails for £2.99. The magazine is packed with stories, colouring, writing and the favourite part of any kids magazine – stickers! This edition also comes with a free Laa Laa bedtime set toy and a bed so you can tuck her in and say goodnight to her. We love watching the Teletubbies so the girls were familiar with the characters as was I as I remember it from the first time round!
There are a good range of different activities in the magazine to keep my girls amused. There are stories, dot to dot, colouring in, sticker activities and number counting activities. The girls have started nursery and they are already becoming more aware of letters and numbers so we have found these really useful to help them practise.
My only slight gripe is that the pages inside are a little thin and we did find that over zealous three years olds flicking through did rip them a little as they aren’t very thick.
We filmed a little vlog of the girls getting to grips with their new magazine. P1 really enjoyed making up her own stories to the pictures as lately they are really embracing imaginative play (watch for the part where she tells her sister off for breaking her train of thought!!)
As a whole, it’s a great little magazine that is affordable as a nice treat. It is definitely a must have for any Teletubbies fan. It’s bright, colourful and packed with fun stuff. My girls are easily swayed by a free toy and stickers so for us, it was an absolute winner and it’s a bargain price of £2.99.
