I wasn't gonna put these figures on my web site. Ever!!! But I had a
change of heart. I'm putting these toys up only because I see so many
unauthorized Teletubbies items out there. So this children's television
show must have captured somebody's imagination if the bootleggers are
making tons and tons of Teletubbies things. Now you gotta understand,
there are some lines of toys that I don't like. So occasionally I will
see a bootleg toy of a toy line I am not too fond of. I may or may not
pick up the toys. Sometimes I do just because it happens to be a bootleg
that I can add to my collection.
the card the figures come on measures about 9" X 7.5". The figures themselves
measure about three inches tall. These figures have no real articulation.
And yes, they are as hideous as the real Teletubbies are.
Now the above figures came out right before Christmas of 1998. Just in time to capitalize on the Teletubies phenomenom. This second set of figures came out in March of 1999. When I first saw them, I thought that only the color scheme of the figures had been changed. I was wrong. Check out the pic and compare it to the first set of Telebabies.
Now I didn't
notice it until I brought these toys home. But it sure looks like the
bootleggers have a sense of humor. The Telebabies are acting out the
song YMCA by the Village People. Heck! The letters Y, M, C, and A are
on top of the heads of these figures. I think this is freaking funny!!!
In my opinion, this set of Telebabies is the better of the two different
sets I have.
