Super

addictive, learning experience

annoying, songs too catchy

The Tweenies were introduced to under 5's a few years ago, and became very popular. Its an educational programme, but its done in a fun way. So, what are the Tweenies? There's four Tweenie, Bella, Milo, Fizz and Jake. They are four large charatcers who represent children in a nursery. The padded...

Excellent when feeling suicidal.

It is still being shown

After writing my brutally honest opinion of The Tellytubbies it was suggested to me, by a certain Ciao member, that I should consider doing a piece on The Tweenies. As this is another group of weird creatures, undoubtedly created by a man who finds it hard not to have magic mushrooms for...

“Go forth spread the word”

fun, colourful, brilliant for kids

you might enjoy it too much.

The Tweenies is a fantastic programme by the BBC for children. Being a full time mum, its nice to be able to entertain my son so I can get on with the housework and the Tweenies really do the job. The Tweenies are 4 youngsters shown at their nursery which is run by two adult helpers and their two...

Great stimulation for children

My daughter watches it too much

One of things I looked forward to most about my daughter growing from a baby to a toddler was watching her dance about in front of the television and singing along with her favourite characters. Her first fascination was with Bear In The Big Blue House, that was until she discovered Milo, Bella...

Perhaps a bit too much moralizing sometimes? And s...

The Tweenies are Milo, Fizz, Jake and Bella, big fuzzy characters that play, talk and sing in parody of normal kids in a playgroup. Bella is the oldest and inevitably leads while Jake is the youngest and faces the frustrations of not always being able to do what the others do. Milo is a...

“Tweenies”

published 18/09/2000

I know this is a kid's show and therefore I probably shouldn't take it quite so seriously... but what's wrong with Jake???? We seem to live in a politically correct age where we have to have equal representation in everything, but do we have to make such an issue out of it even in kids programmes...

“RIP tellytubbies”

published 08/05/2001

peace for twenty minutes, well thought out

none (if you are a 2 year old)

Teletubbies are officially old hat, at least this is the case in our household. Poor old Tinky-Winky, La-la, Dipsy and Po have been given the boot in order to be replaced by Milo, Fizz, Jake and Bella. You would have to have lived on Mars not to notice this new pre-school phenomenon as the...

“Time for Tubbie Bye Bye”

published 08/05/2001

Entertaining and Educational

None that I am aware of

Brilliant, it’s about time something knocked the Teletubbies off their hill. It was bound to happen sooner or later, of course, but the Tweenies have come along in the nick of time to save my sanity. My son is 2 years old and was so into the Teletubbies at one stage I thought I would have...

Combines education with fun.

Lots of expensive Tweenies products.

Unless you have been holidaying on the moon for the past few years, even those without children would not have failed to have seen or heard something of the Tweenies since they first exploded onto BBC1, in their green rocket ship, in 1999. They first came to my attention during their advertising...

On every hour and repeated often

Not too many people can fail to have noticed a splendid television program that is being produced just for the younger kids. Made for the BBC and shown mainly on BBC Choice the Tweenies is tailor made for children between the ages of 2 to 6. Why would I a grown man be writing about such a show...
