Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Teletubbies Let's Go! is a spinoff of the newest Teletubbies reboot that premiered in 2016. In this iteration, the Teletubbies look and behave like very young toddlers, barely speaking and giggling often. It's clear that they're always kind to each other and the narrator says, "The Teletubbies love each other very much." They all have English accents and one of the four is a person of color, as is one of the baby faces that appears giggling between some scenes.
Is It Any Good?
With a gentle narrator and only a very meandering storyline, this is TV programming perfectly suited to toddlers. To say Teletubbies Let's Go! is simplistic is an understatement -- one entire episode is just the four friends tickling each other with a feather. There's very little dialogue or action, but that's the point. It's recommended that young toddlers partake in only a very limited amount of screen time so these short, plot-free episodes are right up their alley. There's also very little talking, mostly just a lot of giggling and some verbal parroting, so viewers aren't taxed with having to follow dialogue. The episodes do, however, contain occasional upbeat songs for kids to bop along with while watching. Though the show may appear a bit chaotic and pointless to adults, it's one of a select few that are truly age appropriate for children as young as two.
