Tubbies are so entertaining for parents & kids

"The Tubbies DVDs are a bit different from the episodes that air on TV. The TV shows are always a half-hour and they follow a predictable pattern. The DVDs have the familiar beginning and ending, but in between they show several clips from various episodes and they don't follow the same pattern. While it's not possible to buy your favorite Tubbies episodes on DVD (as far as I know), the DVDs will have clips from some of your favorite episodes.
I've seen a lot of the episodes and a few of the DVDs, and most of them over and over and over again. It's always fun to watch them with my daughter because she really enjoys them."

"I'm not certain what is taking so long to get all the Teletubbies episodes released on DVD, but this is a welcome edition. I have more fun watching it than my two boys, ages five months and twenty-seven months, do. Most adults I know find it annoying, but I appreciate the bizarre, trippy attributes. The baby in the sun is fantastic, as are Po's little ditties and the naughty Noo-Noo. Aside from adults like myself, this is probably best for children zero to eighteen months. My two year old prefers a little more action, such as dinosaurs and other animals, to the waving and chasing the Teletubbies offer. Their cooing, simple songs and very bright colors should appeal to infants (at least in theory), though video clips showing children from other parts of the globe are better suited for older children. PBS has done a good job with the DVD as well, including about an hour of program content along with a few extras and even a printed glossary of Teletubbies terminology. A good buy."
Not the typical Teletubbies

"My daughter loves Teletubbies -- but this video is more like a Teletubbies music video than one of their typical shows. The characters dance in front of colored screens, pop on and off, and are very rarely in their little house or getting videos from kids. My daughter likes the structure of the typical show format -- with the baby in the sun, the characters interacting at home, etc. She lost interest immediately."
