The Teletubbies Celebrate 20 Years of Big Hugs

Do you remember the Teletubbies? They burst into the children’s scene in the 1990s, and became a huge sensation. It was a British TV show aimed at pre-schoolers that ran from 1997 to 2001. The unusual Teletubbies were comprised of 4 alien-like characters, each with their own unique colour and catchphrase.

I remember the show being a kooky show about these playful characters who lived in a whimsical land where the Voice Trumpets and the narrator would call the Teletubbies to go back to the Tubbytronic Superdome while the Sun Baby sets.

The Teletubbies, AKA Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po, are officially 20 years old! Yes, this year marks the 20th Anniversary of Teletubbies, one of the most iconic children’s brands of all time.

Join us in celebrating “20 Years of Big Hugs” with the Teletubbies!

What’s new? The re-imagined Teletubbies series is airing on Family Jr. every day at 8am EST. Then, stay tuned for an all-new second season coming to Family Jr. this July.

Now you can also bring the Teletubbies’ latest adventures home on DVD. A new line of DVDs from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is sure to keep your little ones entertained during this summer. Teletubbies’ Big Hugs and Twinkle Twinkle both feature six all-new episodes, plus fun bonus content, that kids and parents can enjoy together.

The new series is designed to help young children develop their physical, emotional, and cognitive skills – in a warm, loving, playful environment. It’s about exploring, and enjoying life through creative activities and relatable experiences.

To help kids act out their favourite scenes – there is also a line of adorable Teletubbies toys from Spin Master. The cuddly, plush toys with built-in audio clips, music and interactive features for kids to engage with are now available at all major retailers.

Norm of the North Now Available on Blu-Ray and DVD

A polar bear of many words, Norm’s greatest gripe is simple – there is no room for tourists in the Arctic. But when a maniacal developer threatens to build luxury condos in his own backyard, Norm does what all normal polar bears would do…he heads to New York City to stop it. With a cast of ragtag lemmings at his side, Norm takes on the big apple, big business and a big identity crisis to save the day.

This is NORM OF THE NORTH, a family comedy featuring the voices of Rob Schneider, Ken Jeong and Heather Graham. With actor/comedian Rob Schneider in the film, you know it’s going to be funny.

Released theatrically nation-wide earlier this year, NORM OF THE NORTH is NOW available on Blu-Ray and DVD in-stores and Amazon.ca on DVD BluRay combo pack.

To celebrate the release, Norm of the North is offering a free downloadable activity book!
