Let me introduce to you our beloved TELETUBBIES characters.
Tinky Winky is purple, the biggest Teletubby and almost always goes first!
He is gentle, soft and a dreamer. He can be a little indecisive but is also very thoughtful.His signature move is putting his arms out to the side (for “T”) and then upwards, with bent elbows, for “W”. Tinky Winky’s favorite thing is his red bag, which he carries over his elbow.
Most of all, he loves big hugs!
Dipsy is green, fun, loves dancing and bouncing on his bottom!
He is funky and groovy, always doing dance moves with his arms.
His signature move is an excited wiggle dance and he sometimes ends this by plonking himself onto his bottom.
Dipsy’s favorite thing is his black and white hat – he loves to strike a pose in it. Dipsy loves big hugs!
Po is red, cute and little! Her signature moves are a karate-style hand pose and a star jump.Her favorite thing is going super fast on the scooter!
When Po stands, she has her arms behind her back and sticks her tummy out. She is wide-eyed about all that is around her. Best of all, she loves big hugs!
Laa-Laa is yellow, a performer and she loves to sing and dance!
She is a bundle of good, fun energy.Her signature move is a light-footed twirl. Laa-Laa’s favorite thing is her orange ball – she loves bouncing, patting and boinging it. Laa-Laa loves big hugs!
