“Tubbies” is a regular word we hear in our house; it is often screamed out with sheer excitement as George virtually face plants the TV screen every single morning. When I saw the opportunity to review the new Teletubbies Playdate pack – how could I say no?
Recently, I have felt really guilty recently about not spending enough time with George. MyBump2Baby has been incredibly busy (not that I am complaining) I never seem to get anytime off and when I do, I am often answering calls, replying to emails or setting up meetings for the days I am working. Those of you who regularly read my blog know that I find it really difficult to balance home life, being a mum and running my own business. When I saw the chance to review the Tubbies playdate pack and I saw it as the perfect opportunity for myself and George to spend some quality time together – just the two of us.
What does the Tubby Pack entail?
The Tubby playdate pack has been released to celebrate the brand new series of the Teletubbies coming to CBeebies on 4th June. The Tubby playdate pack is a completely FREE downloadable pack. The pack is absolutely brilliant and includes crafts, games, activities and recipes.
Although, I decided it would be nice for George and I to spend some quality time together, I couldn’t help but notice the cute little invitations within the pack. The tubby playdate pack even took in to consideration the WhatsApp option where you can download a special invitation to send out via WhatsApp. WhatsApp is my lifeline to the outside world so I was impressed by this feature and would definitely use this option for our next playdate.
George and I decided that we would like to get the crafts ready for our playdate and decorate the house the night before so that we could concentrate on games, songs and stuffing our faces with food the next day.
We spent a good 40 minutes colouring in the bunting
Once we had finished the bunting, we stuck it to the front window in the porch to show off the fact we are going to be having our own tubby playdate. George and I went outside to check it looked ok and he was very excited that his colouring was on display to the whole of our street.
The next craft was the tubby antennas, George, of course wanted to be La-La and I wanted to be Po, but sadly I was told that I had to be Tinky Winky. I tried to convince George I would be a good Po but his mind was firmly made up. I cut out the antennas and stuck a lollypop stick and some cardboard to the back to ensure they would stay upright.
The day of the Tubby Play Date
George woke up and the first thing he shouted was “TUBBIES” he remembered it was our playdate which I thought was really cute. We had our breakfast, did a few jobs and then put Teletubbies on in the back ground, I put my phone on “do not disturb” and started we started our playdate.
There were some great recipe ideas in the pack and I decided to create our favourite healthy tubby inspired pizza wraps for lunch as George really enjoys helping me make them.

We then made a face by adding a little cheese, spinach and mushrooms and stuck them in the oven for around 8 minutes.
There were plenty of different ideas for games in the pack, we firstly played “find La-La”, George covered his eyes, I hid La-La and then he went on a mission to find her. He really enjoyed that game.
We also played pin the SPLAT which involves a blindfold and sticking a sticker on your favourite Tubby. George wouldn’t wear the blindfold but enjoyed sticking the stickers on.
Then we finished off our Tubby playdate with some songs, bubbles and music in the garden.
I absolutely loved our Tubby playdate pack, we will definately be having another one!
