Summer is here and for us, that means it’s road trip season. From packing up the car and heading to grandma’s to flying across the country, as a mom of a kiddo who gets bored rather quickly, I’m always on the lookout for hot summer DVD’s, toys, accessories and more that will keep my little guy not only entertained but also learning on the road. Knowing like I do that when learning is fun, it much easier to engage my child and having been a fan of Teletubbies since I was a mom the first time, I’ve been finding new and exciting ways to make road trips fun for kids with help from some beloved friends!
It’s not new news that both my boys have a love for the Teletubbies. Starting with my oldest when he was little and continuing with my youngest now, I’ve been seeing the Teletubbies make learning fun for almost as long as they have been around. Needless to say, I’ve seen them change and evolve and introduce amazing new lines of DVD’s and toys. Now, this summer as Teletubbues celebrate their “20 Years of Big Hugs” to celebrate their 20th anniversary, I’m finding that there are more products than ever to keep road trips jumping, jiving and totally awesome! Check out all these easy ways to make road trips fun for kids with help from Teletubbies!
Stock up on Teletubbies DVD’s
Seriously, for me nothing is better for road trips than DVD’s. It keeps my kiddo entertained and makes the trip go by so much quicker! When it comes time to choose DVD’s to take on any of our trips, Teletubbies are always at the top of our list! Right now, my littlest is totally in love with the Big Hugs DVD! Featuring six all new episodes and the adorable BIG HUGS song that is perfect for enjoying together, this 74 minute DVD is now available at all major retailers!
From the minute we put it in our DVD player, my little guy is enraptured and taken on an adventures with his favorite Teletubbies friends. I love that they make learning fun and that it’s just an easy and portable way to take our favorite characters on the go and ensure that even on long road trips, we can make the time pass quickly!
Don’t Forget Their Favorite Friends
While the Teletubbies DVD’s are the perfect entertainment for road trips, we do limit screen time even when we’re on the road and having a few lovable friends on hand is sure to help! This year, we’re taking along our talking Teletubbies friends of Po and Dipsy.
]These adorable eight inch plush talking toys are a perfect companion for road trips because in addition to being sweet and cuddly, they talk when their stomach’s are squeezed, making them an interactive option that never gets old.
As an added bonus, they are the perfect size to cuddle up to when my little guy is lulled to sleep by the hours on the road! Total mom win, right?
Remember that Coloring Sheets Make Time Pass Quickly
Since we recently embarked on a seven hour road trip across the state, this mama pulled out all her Teletubbies tricks and took along coloring sheets. Having a variety of fun Teletubbies activities ensured that we were able to keep entertained on the go. By simply having different Teletubbies options to offer my kiddo, I can ensure that boredom never sets in and that instead, no matter how long the road trip is, the fun never ends!
By ensuring that I’ve got a variety of Teletubbies option on hand for long road trips, I’m encouraging social, emotional and physical development with the Teletubbies just as I do when we are at home. With endless DVD, toy and accessory options, the fun is sure to last just as long as the road trip and be ready to start again when it’s time for the trip home. I’ve found that by having a variety of Teletubbies items when we’re traveling, the whines of boredom and questions of what should I do disappear and are instead replace by sounds of happiness as my little guy’s favorite friends join us for the adventure!
Then, once we arrive home, we can pick up right where we left off with the newly reimagined Teletubbies that are now airing on Nick Jr. weekdays at 9:47 am.
