My kids love to play with bubbles. When they were really little, I would blow bubbles for what seemed like hours on end while they tried to pop them. The new Teletubbies: Bubbles DVD is full of singing, dancing and popping bubbles. Preschoolers are going to want to watch this one over and over again.
Teletubbies: Bubbles (DVD release date: June 20) contains six all-new episodes, including ‘Bubbles.’ The Teletubbies chase and pop bubbles, play with a magical music box and groove to the energetic Tubby Phone Dance.
We shared our Teletubbies DVDs with the cutest 20-month-old girl I know, my niece, MJ. She watches with big eyes and big smiles while the Teletubbies sing songs and dance. Update: Her mom tells me that MJ and her two older sisters are glued to the TV when the Teletubbies are on!
In case you have not seen the updated Teletubbies yet, the new series debuted on Nick Jr. in May 2016. Throughout 2017, the Teletubbies are celebrating “20 Years of Big Hugs.” The Teletubbies love to give hugs.

Teletubbies helps young children develop physical, cognitive and emotional skills. Each show promotes developmental skills including:
- Being Active

- Listening and Responding
- Coordination and more.
Watch as your child laughs, dances, listens and responds to the Teletubbies.
I love how the Teletubbies: Bubbles DVD encourages kids to sing, dance and splash along with Tinky Winky, Dispy, Laa-Laa and Po. See what happens when the Tubby Custard Machine makes lots and lots of Custard bubbles! You and your child can join the Teletubbies in the energetic Tubby Phone Dance, too.

The DVD runs for approximately 74 minutes and includes two all-new featurettes your child will enjoy. In the first, join the Teletubbies as they sing “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes;” in the second, kids get to know Laa-Laa, the yellow Teletubby who loves to sing and dance.
We may not have the Tubby Custard Machine at my house, but we do have a super fun Giant Bubble Wand and bubble snake blowers!
My kids love to make gigantic bubbles with the giant bubble wand. They also have contests to see who can make the longest bubble snakes with our DIY bubble snake bubble blower. See how we made a bubble snake blower out of a plastic bottle and one mismatched sock in the craft directions below.
How To Make a Bubble Snakes Bubble Blower
Time Needed: 5 minutes or less
- Empty plastic bottle (about 16 to 20 ounces size)
- Original Dawn Dish Soap Bubble Solution (see #3 direction below)
- Use a sharp knife to cut off the bottom of the plastic bottle.
- Slip the sock over the cut off end of the plastic bottle. The sock needs to fit tight around the bottle or it may fall off, so secure the sock with a rubber band if necessary.
- To Make the Dish Soap Bubble Solution: In a shallow bowl, stir 1 Tablespoon dish soap into 2 cups water.
To Make Bubble Snakes With Your Bubble Blower: Dip the sock-covered bottom of the bottle into the bubble solution. Blow air into the bottle (through the opening you used to drink out of) and watch the bubble snake grow!
