In our reading nook - Teletubbies



 My 17month old absolutely loves books, in fact he keeps going into his brothers room each morning and taking his. We have a few baby books but nothing has kept his attention as much as the new colourful Teletubbies ones, they simply fascinate him.

I have to admit I have a real soft spot for the Teletubbies as it was one of the overseas shows that was available to watch in South Africa. I was already quite old by the time it hit the screens but even so I would on occasion watch it because having British shows in South Africa was a novelty and they are so unique it still managed to capture my imagination with my favourite always beings Po - I even got the Po soft toy when we came to visit family in the UK.




We do limit screen time in our household but welcome gentle and education shows and with years of research being put behind the show to make sure it focuses on nurturing love, respect and humour as well as being engaging but not over stimulating and is a show we are comfortable with both boys watching. If you don't know already the new series landed back on CBeebies in November and has been a hit with toddlers since.

These fun books mirror that, with simple, creative and colourful stories and has provided some nice quiet time with my youngest who is happy to sit and explore the books as well as the little pocket library which is fantastic for popping into your bag when your on the go.




Great news is that I have a little reading bundle up for grabs so you can also have some peaceful quiet time with your little ones discovering the world of the teletubbies for yourself. The giveaway includes two big books - Favourite Things and The Magic Watering Can and also the Pocket Library which consists of 5 mini books. The Giveaway runs until the 30th July 2016.

  3. I loved The Last Noo Noo by Jill Murphy. A little kid is made to give up his soothers or 'noo noo's' so he plants his last one in the garden and it grows into a Noo Noo tree!
