The New Teletubbies Magazine Review

I’ve been coerced by grumpy toddlers in a shop to buy magazines before and I’ve usually been disappointed with them when we get them home. Hpwever the new Teletubbies Magazine had me impressed straight away as I knew Ava would love the Laa-Laa bedtime set that was included.

Teletubbies has been popular in our house for years with all 3 of the children enjoying it at some point. It’s currently Ava’s turn, although the boys at 5 and 9 will happily ‘watch it with her’. I much prefer the newer version that’s now on TV, the Tiddlytubbies are so cute.

I was right, the whole magazine was a hit with her. I didn’t know how she would react as she has never had a magazine before and at just 2 I thought she might be a bit young, but she straight away recognised it was the “Tubbies” which I missed on camera of course. She spent a while looking at it, kissing the pictures and then wanted the toy set from the front.

I made a little video of Ava exploring the Teletubbies Magazine.  

Ava spent ages playing with Laa-Laa, putting her in the bed and covering her up then saying “night night”. The set is great quality and not what I would expect from a magazine toy. I’ve only ever had upset boys before when the toy breaks after a few plays. I know this will last and I’m pretty sure Ava will continue to play with it judging by how much she already has.

Ava also enjoyed the colouring, stickers and the story. The little pictures of the characters meant it was engaging enough to keep her sitting to listen to it. She was a bit young for some of the other activities in there although she enjoyed looking at all the pages and trying to count and talk about the colours.

Finlay (5) has been off School recovering from a sickness bug and he did all the things in the magazine that Ava couldn’t like the the tracing of a line and the counting. He enjoyed putting a sticker on each completed page and made the spinner for us all to have a Tubby Dance (surprisingly I didn’t film that bit, sorry).

Overall I was impressed with the quality and content of the magazine and it’s made me re think my view on them. At £2.99 the Teletubbies magazine is definitely something I would buy for Ava. It would be ideal for those times when you need to keep them entertained like at a restaurant or so you can have a coffee in peace.  

Disclosure: We were sent the Teletubbies Magazine for the purpose of this review, however all thoughts and opinions are my own.

    This looks good! I am always looking for new magazines as mine love them and like you say they are great for restaurants or quiet time at home! I haven’t seen the new teletubbies though (I grew up with them and thought my children had been spared the joy), but may have a look! #picknmix

    This looks like a great magazine. Alice is at the age she loves a magazine and of course Holly wants one too. Until now I haven’t found one suitable for Holly, but this looks perfect for her X

    Aww lovely video (and photos!). Mia really likes magazines but I hate buying them as she either cant do much of the things inside or they a rubbish for the price they cost! I’m sure when I was little, the cost a quid! Anyway, Mia hasn’t seen teletubbies however she does know who they are and so I think she would be interested in this magazine 🙂

    We’re not quite at Teletubbies stage yet but I saw it on tv the other day and the new version seems so much better! Perfect way to keep them busy with this to go with it! #picknmix

    I’m the same with the reluctance to buy magazines and waste money. I think I will when Amelia is older but right now I may as well give her a fiver to shread haha #picknmix

    I saw this in the shops recently and with my little 21 month old loving teletubbies I was going to give it a whirl but was worried she wouldn’t be interested. Might have to have a go with her and see how she enjoys it! #picknmix

    She is so cute, her colouring had me laughing though – I hope your table survived it! 😉

    My daughter ALWAYS asks for a magazine when we go to the shop and she likes Telebubbies so I’ll keep an eye out for this one. #picknmix

    First of all, OMG your daughter is adorable. I loved the review video. She is so cute!!! Now I have to subscribe to your blog. That’s awesome you have review videos 🙂
    I hope they sell this book in Canada too. I am sure my 20 month old twins will love it as well. They are so into “play & learn” things. Thanks so much for sharing!

    We spend a fortune on magazines – my two love them, and Little B would definitely love the Teletubbies one! #picknmix

    I love kids magazines. A really fab way of occupying them for a long time without spending a lot of cash! Especially useful for long train journeys or trips to relatives, I’ve found x #picknmixfridays
