I became addicted when my daughter became addicted three years ago...she was the controversial Tinky for her first Halloween.
"Teletubbies is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a tour and pop-up store targeting new age groups—tweens, teens and young adults.
Ragdoll Ltd., the creators of Teletubbies, a show for kids that features four characters with screen in their abdomens, is taking the British preschool sensation from the TV screen to New York for the group’s first U.S. appearance.
The costumed four kick off their tour March 26-29 with visits to city landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty, Grand Central Terminal and Times Square. At each stop, the group will stage a live photo shoot.
The company wants to mark its milestone by engaging with consumers beyond its preschool audience.
“We saw this benchmark as a great opportunity to expand our core audience,” says Lynn Godfrey, Ragdoll’s senior director of marketing. “We are reaching out to teens and tweens, that audience that grew up with us and loved us then. People will find Teletubbies are as relevant as when they first experienced them.” -- Telletubies Invade New York Via Tour, Pop-Up Store: Promo
