Talking Teletubbies Dolls Plush
Tinky Winky Dipsy Laa-Laa Po

TV Belly Teletubbies


Talk when Bellies are Pressed


Talking Teletubbies Tinky Winky Dipsy Laa Laa Po


What a joy when talking Teletubbies

appeared on TV from 1997 - 2001.


The cute little alien beings, also referred to as mythical characters, with the funny antenna heads and cute little voices aimed at preschool kids became an instant sensation for children and parents alike. Their plump bright colored bodies and round cheery faces drew television viewer attention comparable to a bone enthralling a dog. Onlookers anticipated which television screen would turn on from which colorful belly body during each broadcast episode.


Talking Teletubbies Purple Green Yellow Red




Shown in the image on the left with the little alien dolls lined up from tallest to smallest are the happy little talking Teletubbies foursome.


Tinky Winky comes first in the lineup with a triangular shaped antenna atop his head.


Tinky Winky is a purple Teletubbie. As with his cohorts, he has large brown eyes, a pug nose, and a big smile. As is often the case with aliens, Tinky Winky nor the rest of the Teletubbies have eyebrows or eyelashes.

Dipsy and Laa Laa Talking Teletubbies


Lined up next to Tinky Winky comes the neon green Teletubbie called Dipsy.


A long prong-like antenna sits atop Dipsy's head almost like a spear with a blunt rather than a sharp tip.


Dipsy has a cute little dimple on each of his cheeks. He also has a darker complextion than Tinky Winky and Po. For this matter, as seen in the images, the same can be said about Laa-Laa.


Speaking of Laa-Laa, this bright yellow alien being has a prong shaped antenna similar to Dipsy's. Unlike Dipsy's upright transmitter, however, Laa-Laa's antenna is longer and it curls around and upward from its center. 

Po and Tinky Winky Talking Teletubbies


The last of the Teletubbies foursome is itty bitty Po who is a red being with a circular antenna atop its head. 


Why the antennas...?? One might ask...


The short answer is for reception to make the televisions in their bellies operate. These operations could be seen when watching Teletubbies in action (on television of course) when the program was airing. Although the program is currently off the air, parents can log on to the BBC website and play Teletubbie games with their little ones. 


Teletubbies talk, laugh, and sing when their bellies are squeezed. This action depresses talk boxes located inside their plush padding as shown on the left.


Talk box pockets close via velcro strips (as shown in images below).

Each Teletubbie says its name as well as phrases like eh-oh, big hug, again-again, and bye-bye.


Vintage year for these talking Teletubbies is 1998.

These Teletubbies are machine washable in cold water on a gentle cycle. Talk boxes must be removed before washing immersing the dolls in water. Manufacturer recomends tying inside a pillow case to preserve fabric stability. Washing instruction tags are intact on the Teletubbies' bodies.Teletubbies Tag of Authenticity
