Editorial Reviews

Slurpy slurp! The Teletubbies' favorite friend is the Noo-noo! This friendly vacuum cleaner is very good at tidying up after Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po when they make a mess, but sometimes he just can't help being naughty! It's a messy day to play and giggle with the Teletubbies and the Noo-noo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clearing Up the Mystery February 24, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My 15 month old is Teletubbies obsessed, and we were heartbroken when the contract with PBS ran out and it was taken off the air. I wish I had known - I could have saved alot of money by just not clearing my DVR! In any case, we are now collecting the DVD's and have several. I limit how often I let her watch as she is absolutely entranced, but they are all great for "emergencies" (one of us is ill, an important phone call, she is tired and cranky but it's not bedtime, etc.)
This is probably my daughter's favorite. She "cracks up" every time when Noo-noo races around loudly. An added benefit is that it helped her overcome her Vacuum Cleaner anxiety (which makes my life way easier!). When I vacuum I tell her it's time to "feed the Noo-noo"!
To understand what makes Teletubbies educational, one has to see the world, for a moment, from a very young child's perspective. She has limited receptive language, limited experiences, limited concepts, short attention span, she is low man on the totem pole in a world controlled by grown ups. She is a "Stranger in a Strange Land". The world of Teletubbies makes sense to her. She can understand (and likely even speak!) the language. She can grasp the simple plots and actions. The bright colors captivate her. She can pay attention long enough to take in the short "bites" of story. Teletubbies are her kind of people - children. But they are in a world FOR and OF children!
What she is learning about is LIFE! Life in a simple, clear way that she can get her mind around. This is way more important than naming shapes or colors (though Teletubbies has those also) or the alphabet. Learning builds on a foundation. Teletubbies would not be educational for a school age child.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Noo-Noo Tidies Up September 17, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What is there to say about a vacuum cleaner (aspiradora) that not only tidies up the Teletubbies' house, but also herds, plays with, and chases the Teletubbies with NASCAR sound effects? Preschool kids love this, and although I don't have kids, I bought this for the children of a friend, and watched it to make sure it was appropriate. Adults will find the show extraordinarily boring, of course, but the kids adore it. They seem to particularly enjoy the Noo-Noo sound effects, and imitate him frequently, much to the chagrin of the parents.

The show purports to be educational somehow, which is where the three star rating comes into play. It is very captivating and entertaining for kids, but is not really terribly educational, although a guest spot demonstrates how adding water to dirt makes mud to play in (a lesson I am not sure most parents really need glorified).

The DVD has a couple of extras, including a highly entertaining overview of Noo-Noo operations titled "The Noo-Noo's Silliest Moments." This is easily the most entertaining part of the DVD.

I attempted to watch the DVD in French as well, which is allegedly an option, but although I got the English subtitles to work, I could never get the French option to work.

This DVD will keep your children entertained, but side effects include Noo-Noo imitation at mealtimes, so don't say I didn't warn you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not work with USA dvd players November 3, 2010
By LBL
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my one year old. It is not compatible for the United States DVD player. I even tried to view it from my computer, but it is unreadable in the `USA zone'. It will cost me more in shipping to return to the UK, so I am stuck with a DVD that doesn't work.
Useless dvd... don't buy from PBShop if you live in the USA!
