They may look like psychedelic couch potatoes, but the Teletubbies are nothing if not energetic. This 80-minute offering should inspire young humans to abandon the sofa for some stretching, light calisthenics, and strenuous renditions of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes." The first part concentrates on legitimate exercise (i.e., stand up, sit down, side stretches), with one Tubby demonstrating the activity, the speaker announcing "ready, set, go," and then all four Tubbies completing the exercise (often followed by a group hug). This gives young viewers plenty of opportunity to follow along. At the end the Tubbies do some free-form dancing while wearing funny hats. The second part concentrates on the aforementioned body-parts song, with ample footage of real children participating--as well as British bobbies, firefighters, rugby players, and a dance class. Even the Tubbies' vacuum cleaner joins the classic childhood ritual--as well as a vacuum cleaner can. Ages 1 to 6. --Kimberly Heinrichs

5.0 out of 5 stars Great interactive video Nov. 19 2001
Format:VHS Tape
My son, 21 months, loves this video and I love to watch my son while he is watching it. The teletubbies do various 'exercises' throughout the video- things such as: jump, side-to-side, crawl, skip, head-shoulder-knees and toes, and others. When each segment begins my son will begin jumping around, or crawling or doing the other actions. He has learned the song and actions to 'Head-shoulders-knees and toes'. My son also learned to say "Ready-set-go" from this video. It is really cute to say 'Ready' to him and he finishes with 'set-go'.
I know as an adult the Teletubbies can be very annoying. But I try and remind myself that the Teletubbies were created for very small children not adults. I'm supposed to be annoyed by them- if I wasn't something would be wrong with my mental capacity.
Overall, I would give any Teletubby video 5 stars if it was successful in keeping my son occupied for 15 minutes while I take a shower. So far any Teletubby show my son has watched- whether it was video or on PBS has succeeded.

Go Exercise with the Teletubbies is an absolute hit with my 14 month old. She saw it for the first time at 12 months and insists on seeing her "Ya Ya" tape ( La La is the yellow Teletubbie) everyday when she arrives home from daycare. As young as she is, she stays interested in the tape for 30 -45 minutes which allows me to start dinner and relax after work. She dances as she watches and has learned to touch her head, shoulders, knees, and toes like the real kids in the video. While I personally find tapes such as Barney and Sesame Street more entertaining and a lot less repetitive, by far both her Teletubbies tapes are her favorites. She especially likes the facial expressions of the baby sunshine and shrieks with delight when the sun is on the screen. Her grandmother believes that when my daughter walks around swinging her arms, she is imitating the Teletubbies. My daughter is very advanced in language and motorskills and I truly attribute a large part of her early success to her love and interest in the Teletubbies. I strongly encourage parents to introduce this video to their infants as well as Teletubbies books. I am amazed at how excited my daughter gets everytime she watches the video.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exercising Is Playful And Fun! Sept. 14 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This is a great video! It is perfect for getting the kids up and moving around. It has bright colors, simple steps and appropriate sequencing. Cute and cheerful, it shows that exercising can be playful and fun, and can be done anywhere. Kids exuberantly copied the movements, clapping and laughing. They watched it over and over. "It was fun fun." "We like to run and jump." "We did the exercises with them." "We learned to stand on one foot." "Ready-steady-go!" Best for ages 0 to 2.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Slow Moving Sept. 18 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is VERY slow paced, especially at the beginning. It starts out with exercises, repeating each exercise. Then it moves on to the song HEAD SHOULDERS KNEES AND TOES sung in different ways. Then it moves on to kids and Teletubbies copying each other.
All in all, it is not a bad video, but it's not as charming as the tv program. My eight month old seems to enjoy it though, especially the parts with the Teletubbies. It is too long for him to sit through, so I usually have it on while he plays.

4.0 out of 5 stars GO exercise with the Teletubbies April 6 2001
By Wendy
Format:VHS Tape
Finally a video that gets my son to drop his juice and get up and MOVE! From the minute this video begins he is jumping and dancing with the teletubbies. Each teletubby does there own movements (up & down, side to side etc.) and my son follows along. The music can be a bit annoying at times (especially since we HAVE to watch this video over and over and over). But all in all you end up liking these little creatures.

4.0 out of 5 stars Teletubbies are a hit! June 25 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I purchased this video with the hope that my boys (just over 1 and over 2) would do more than sit like potatoes in front of the tube. They do seem to enjoy the video very much and it does offer many opportunities for little ones to get up and move! The little video snippets that are the shows hallmark are good-particuarly the "Head, shoulders, knees, and toes" one. I own 4 tubby videos and this is our favorite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Video Aug. 23 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Our son loves the Teletubies and his favorite verb is "jump", so this video was an instant hit. From this video he has learned to stand on one leg, skip, and most of all copy someone else. This is no easy task for someone who is autistic. I would recommend this one for working on large motor skills.
