Get ready to dance, explore and laugh with the newest iteration of the world-renowned preschool brand Teletubbies is back and now you can watch it on Family Jr. Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po arrive in Canadian homes this year to entertain little ones. I am glad to see Teletubbies return, as the initial series I used to watch with my nephews probably more than a decade ago. That time Teletubbies were extremely popular that kids wanted only Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po toys and Teletubbies themes birthday parties. With the wide selection of programming on TV for pre-schoolers I often not very familiar with characters and their names, but with Teletubbies Teddy was even surprised that I know the names of the characters and their behavior.
