Teletubbies Shuffle 'n' Giggle Ping - Review



Can you believe that it's been 20 years since the Teletubbies first hit our screens? I was 9 years old when they aired the very first episode and I remember watching it with my younger siblings, we were all transfixed. It wasn't long after when Teletubbies fever hit the UK and pretty much everyone I knew was after a Teletubbies toy for Christmas and it'd sold out everywhere! Although I think my Mum managed to get hold of a Po for my baby sister, lucky Sadie!

Teletubbies fill me to the brim with nostalgia and it delights me that they are still around today so that my own children get to enjoy them too. Not only are Teletubbies still here 20 years later, but back in 2015 we were introduced to the Tiddletubbies, baby Teletubbies and boy are they cute! When I was offered the chance to review a toy from the new Tiddletubbies range I was extremely excited, as you've probably guessed!


We weren't sure which toy was going to arrive as it was out of two different options, then selected at random so this added to the excitement when the toy was being delivered. On opening the box we discovered a Shuffle 'n' Giggle Ping which is from Character and retails at £24.99. My first impression was that this could be the cutest toy I've ever seen and I wanted to hide her and keep her for myself! As soon as I got it out the box Ava started reaching for her, probably because of how bright and colourful she is.



The Shuffle 'n' Giggle Ping is suitable from 18 months and is such a clever, interactive toy and would entertain a whole array of different age ranges. Ping is made from soft plush material which make her irresistible to kiss and cuddle (or latch on to if your child is anything like Ava!) She has big brown eyes, a sweet little smile and the signature Teletubbies antennae.

Simply press Ping's back and she shuffles and crawls a long floor. When I did this for the first time both Noah and Ava's eyes lit up, they couldn't help but smile and they both wanted to grab hold of her. Ping also babbles and giggles which never fails to make Ava smile, she's so enamoured by her.



All in all I think this is a fantastic toy, one which can grow with your child and I think it costs a very reasonable price too. Noah and Ava have played with Ping ever since she arrived and that says it all really, we know how fast children and babies lose interest in their toys! In particular, I think Ava will grow to love this toy even more as she gets older, especially once she starts crawling herself, which won't be long now! I know she'll be crawling after Ping in no time!

Are you a fan of the Teletubbies? 
Do you have a little one that would like this toy too?

  1. Teletubbies were popular when I was an adult. We appreciated that many children loved them. I can recall dressing up as a Teletubbie, along with one of my colleagues for an Event at work. The children were thrilled to see some of the characters they loved. It was a nice Event, as such a different kind of day at work. Good to see families have a nice Day Out at the Event.

    Ping looks nice, like the colour. Seems fun that she crawls and babbles, good for little ones. We do have some young babies within the family now. So might consider this toy as a gift sometime.
