Most parent’s of young children will remember the Teletubbies and the love that many kids had for this simple show. Now Teletubbies is experiencing a reboot with more up to date scenery and incorporating technology to bring it’s fun and joy back to new generations of toddlers and preschoolers. My kids used to love watching Teletubbies while they were growing up and I have no doubt that toddlers growing up today will have the same love for the new show as our kids did just a few short years ago.
