Bespoke ‘Tubby Playtime’ classes created by child development expert
Dr. Lin Day set to reach 35,000 preschool children across the UK
Halifax, NS – 5 September 2018 – DHX Brands, the dedicated brand management and consumer products arm of DHX Media, is teaming up with Baby Sensory and Toddler Sense to create Teletubbies-themed classes for preschoolers. The initiative will be available across the U.K. and was developed by leading parenting expert and renowned author, Dr. Lin Day, in consultation with DHX Brands. The classes, which are expected to reach an estimated 35,000 preschoolers, will feature a Teletubbies lesson plan highlighting the developmental benefits of play. The activity sessions will take place for one week, from 24th-28th September 2018.
“We are thrilled to be collaborating on these Teletubbies-themed early learning classes, which have been customised by Dr. Day for Baby Sensory and Toddler Sense,” said Charlotte Hill, Brand Director, DHX Brands. “The Teletubbies are hugely popular among preschool children and Dr. Day brings with her a wealth of knowledge on early childhood development. We are confident these classes will provide a world of imagination and fun for babies and toddlers, helping them gain important skills while reinforcing the message to parents that playing with their child is vital for future learning.”
“I love the Teletubbies,” said Dr. Day. “They have all the essential principles that appeal to young children, from soft, velvety bodies to happy faces, interesting features, colours, and repetitive sounds. The Teletubbies inspire active, fun, imaginative play and they have huge learning benefits for babies and toddlers.”
The Teletubbies Baby Sensory and Toddler Sense Tubby Playtime sessions are sure to provide a rich learning experience for babies and toddlers. Fully immersing them in a world of colour, fun and creativity, the new lesson plan will take children on a unique and exciting learning adventure with the Teletubbies, exploring a host of fabulous musical instruments and gaining important abilities, such as listening skills, a sense of rhythm and also developing hand-eye coordination. With these fun-filled Teletubbies-themed classes, there’s no shortage of opportunities to learn about the many wonders of the world and the importance of playtime.
