But one addition that has been made is that there are now baby Teletubbies called the Tiddlytubbies.
In light of this a new range of Tiddlytubbies toys have now been brought out and we were lucky enough to get to try one. I was really curious to find out all about what a Tiddlytubbie toy was like and excited at the concept that Lily was going to get something to play with that relates back to my childhood.
We were sent a Shuffle and Giggle Tiddlytubbie called Ping.
I think that Ping is adorable. It is quite soft for a mechanical toy and not very heavy either and the soft fabric it is covered in is perfect for your young children to be able to hold and cuddle up. The face is hard, but not to hard that it could hurt a child if they bashed themselves with it. Lily thought she was adorable too and gave her a big hug as soon as I got it out of the box. She knew it was a baby and said "aww baby". I do think that the big eyes really do help the baby appearance and make it look so cute!
When you switch the Tiddlytubbie over to play mode from demo mode you can make it crawl. You simply press its back and the Tiddlytubbie starts to crawl towards you or away from you giggling happily and making all sorts of baby noises as it does. It is really easy to press the button on its back and Lily managed to do this fine. Not much pressure needs to be placed down to start it moving. She really enjoyed putting the Tiddlytubbie away from her and encouraging it to crawl towards her saying "come on baby" as it did.
One thing I love about it is that the mechanical noise from the legs moving isn't apparent at all. I have had some toys in the past that have scared Lily because you can hear the robotics move in them. This isn't the case at all with this toy.
It is also perfect to keep children on the move. Great for children who are crawling or just starting to walk and so they can chase the Tiddlytubbie as it goes.
Lily has loved playing with this toy and has been keeping it with her quite a bit and taking it to bed with her at night time. She really loves taking care of it and it is definitely a new firm favourite toy of hers.
You can buy a Tiddlytubbie of your own from Character Online for the price of £24.99
