Top Customer Reviews
It features two "Teletubbies Everywhere" segments. The first one features a Tubby Custard machine, some messes, and a TV segment that takes place in the United States (which features two kids painting with their hands). In the second segment, Dipsy and Laa-Laa draw an oval with their feet, Tinky-Winky uses an umbrella underneath a raining cloud, and there's a TV segment that takes place in South Africa (which is about some kids washing their clothes).
In Teletubbyland (the main location of the series), Tinky Winky makes Tubby Toast for everyone, but the Noo-Noo eventually tidies them up. This causes one of the other Teletubbies to restart the Tubby Toaster. After that, everyone eats the tubby toast. Next, Laa-Laa plays with her ball, but then it bounces everywhere in Teletubbyland. When it goes inside the TubbyTronic Superdome, the Noo-Noo catches it and retrieves it. Next, the Teletubbies are eating their Tubby Toast again, but the Noo-Noo is being really noisy by racing around the house (you ought to see it; it's spectacular because it reminds my son of stock car racing, monster trucks, racing big rigs and baja trucks). Afterwards a TV segment about two kids making a mudhole plays. Next the Teletubbies wash themselves and the Noo-Noo, watch some kids "spray painting" a picture and the Teletubbies finally make Tubby Custard (with a mishap of course).
If your child loves the Teletubbies, he or she will love this DVD. I would highly recommend buying it!
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.Read more ›
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.
Useless dvd... don't buy from PBShop if you live in the USA!

I expected more Noo-noo-centric episodes. But since my 2 year old does not seem to mind as long as Noo-noo just appears in the episode, I'd say that the DVD is not a waste of... Read morePublished on July 28, 2008 by i heart books
