I love Igglepiggle!

No judging please, but yes, you read right, I love Igglepiggle. My daughter is now almost 6 months old and, to be honest, still hasn’t got a clue what she’s watching on TV; which is great considering there are new episodes of Pretty Little Liars.

However, I’ve found a few new faves that I thought I’d probably hate, I am addicted to “In The Night Garden” and “Teletubbies”. Yes, I will happily sit there and watch Tinky Winky’s tummy light up and see some terrible 90’s clothed child run around talking about a watering can, TWICE. At the same time my daughter is sucking on her finger staring at the cat instead.

I’ll go as far as to say I seek out “In The Night Garden”, thank GOD for iPlayer and their full box set. I adore Makka Pakka and Tombliboo Oo, even more.

No I don’t understand it either, but don’t worry too much (because I’m sure you are) I absolutely detest “Swashbuckle” and “Charlie and Lola”. That terrible Aladdin rip off is top of my blacklist too.


3 Things you may not know about “In The Night Garden”

1. Their toys are on special at Tesco at the moment.

Well, the Makka Pakka ones are,  don’t start me on the blatant discrimination of the sacred stone collector!

2. It cost over £15 million to make.

Sounds like a lot for a few outfits really doesn’t it! It’s hardly “The Big Bang Theory” is it!

3. It’s never coming back.

Nope, BBC have confirmed there will be no more new episodes. I had a little cry about this.

What kids’ programmes do you secretly like? Surely there must be a couple in the closet there?

The next stop for me is the “In The Night Garden” tour, I’m not particularly fussed if my daughter comes along, I’d quite enjoy the me-time!

    I’m going to be shamefully honest here and reveal that i’m quite partial to Twirlywoos and Mr Tumble. My son is 5 months and much the same as your baby, (except he stares at the dog), but I find myself quite entranced by the colours and shapes as I eat my toast of a morning.

    I will say though, we don’t have the sound on the TV while the programmes are on in our house. We listen to Planet Rock instead, (I also have a 14 year old computer nerd so i’m determined this one will inherit my love of good music!). Perhaps i’d be less likely to sit and watch if I could actually hear it ?

      Hehe, I know what you mean. I do enjoy the stories on the Teletubbies and ITNG. I’m not such a fan of Mr Tumble I do actually find his voice annoying! Although he did teach me the Makaton for parachute (which was endlessly useful)!

    Mmmh lemme confess , me and my 4 years Daughter can watch Barnie and Sesame Street like for 2 hours or more and twice a day . i loooove it and i think somehow because i sing their songs all day she got used to it and now we are both into it !

    As we live in the Middle East we don’t have a lot of English TV shows but thanks to Youtube.

    Haha every parent secretly loves ITNG!!! I’m taking the twins to the Live Tour this summer and I am SYP excited! I could go on and on about the other CBeebies shows I love but I keep meaning to blog about that particularly sad aspect of my life lol
