  • Scary night garden!!

    My 3 yr old son Tom has been off school for a couple of days with an ear infection. (Kids start full time school at 3 in Wales!) He's a lot better now, I've dragged him up City Road in Cardiff (fab fabric and haby shops!) and now he's relaxing in front of the telly while I'm up here.

    Just a minute ago, he starts crying - REALLY crying! I thought he'd hurt himself, so I rush back down, ask him what's wrong and when he calms down, he points a finger at the telly.

    The naughty ninky nonk has run off with the tumbliboos trousers!

    He sat on my lap and had a cuddle, all the while sobbing! I told him that they would get them back, and luckily, makka pakka did! (It could have been the episode where the ninky nonk gets arrested and refuses to give them back!)

    Anyway, he's all smiles again now!

    I thought I'd warn all the parents on here that it's a scary episode!!

    And which planet do you and your son live on????

    Sorry, couldn't resist - only joking. I'm just out of touch with kids tv now my son is 17 but I am sooooo looking forward to being a grandma one day and getting back into it all.

      My 3 year old grandkids (one girl, one boy) used to be crazy about 'Night Garden' and Ickle Pickle and Upsy Daisy were their favorites.........Robert would cry when the programme was finishing and I swear they have some type of hypnotic hold over the kids!!

      Thankfully he has now moved on to Spiderman and Beatrice's heroine is Stephanie from 'Lazy Town.

                For anyone that hasnt got a clue, heres a little summary of the characters.

                Igglepiggle is physical and energetic – a well-loved teddy, always jumping and bouncing. He's curious and adventurous, but also vulnerable. He is often in need of reassurance and always carries his red blanket with him.

                Upsy Daisy is happy and optimistic. She loves to dance regardless of the occasion and has her own special bed that has a mind of its own – she is often seen chasing or being chased by her bed.

                The Tombliboos live inside a round bush, which has many different levels inside where they enjoy playing with their special blocks as well as their drums and piano.

                Makka Pakka lives in a little cave with his favourite stones. He has a soap and sponge to make sure all of the Garden stones and all of the faces of the other characters are clean and tidy. He travels around the Garden on his Og-Pog, which carries his sponge, his Uff-uff dryer and his special trumpet.

                The Pontipines are a family of ten that lives in a semi-detached house at the foot of a tree. Their next-door neighbours are the Wottingers.

                The Haahoos are six enormous great billowy forms that make their way through the Garden like puffy pillows, calling to each other as they meet up to go to sleep in a big pillowy pile.

                The Ninky Nonk is a train of many differently sized and shaped carriages and the Pinky Ponk is an airship, speckled with many fins and large landing lights and providing wonderful aerial views of all of the Garden's splendour.
                i have little brother and sister and they used to love watching it, but have grown out of it now.

                  I happened to watch it once, it scared the pants off me!

                  Whatever happened to Wacky Races, Scooby Doo, Tom and Jerry or The Flintstones? They were funny, not creepy
