In The Night Garden…


In The Night Garden is a new programme on CBeebies. The start of the song starts with the flashing stars. Igglepiggle takes down the sail of the boat and put the light on. The sail is his special blanket that he carries around the Night Garden. At the end if the song the big star goes up into the springtime blossom.

Makka Pakka has to go under a bridge to get to the Night Garden because people have to use the bridge to cross his path otherwise they would have to go round.

Upsy Daisy’s bed is in the middle of the daisies. On Upsy Daisy’s game on the CBeebies website her bed runs off and she has to chase it. Then it goes back to its place and she comes and finds it.

The Tombliboos are called Om, Ee and Oo [Mummy writes – we think these names are right.]. When you click on the Tombliboos on their game page their shorts fall down and that makes us laugh – it’s so funny.

It is so funny when Igglepiggle and Upsy Daisy fall over on the TV. Upsy Daisy fell over when the flower was so pretty she couldn’t believe her eyes.

The Pontipines are so small you can’t see if they are there at all. Even when there are ten you can’t see if they are there. 1 Pontipine, 2 Pontipines, 3 Pontipines, 4 Pontipines, 5 Pontipines, 6 Pontipines, 7 Pontipines, 8 Pontipines, 9 Pontipines 10 Pontipines. When the Pontipine children are missing they go into and onto strange places. Once they fell asleep on Upsy Daisy’s bed and another time they got onto the Tombliboos’ roof because they were making so much noise that they couldn’t hear anyone except the Pontipine children on the roof.

The Haahoos are so big that when you are so little like the Pontipines we have just talked about you can’t see how big they are.

The Ninky Nonk is so fast we can’t catch it. The round one is the Tombliboos’, the tall one is Upsy Daisy’s, the little one is the Pontipines’ and the back one was Igglepiggle’s when he was on his own.

The Pinky Ponk can fly. When you are a bird in the Night Garden and you can fly you might be able to catch it as it is so slow. The large people go in the bottom and the Pontipines go up the top.

    Pippy, an excellent blog! I’ve just read your bit on the Night Garden and it has answered a lot of questions my son Ben has been asking. The only one we have left is – do you know what the Pontpines’ next door neighbours are called? They were on last night and they are blue. Please help….

    It’s the new favourite in our house. Dinner just can’t be out of the way quick enough. We enjoy copying the dances most of all.

    Update (from daddy),

    The Tombliboos are actually called “Un”, “Oo”, and “Ee”…

    … as in the vowel sounds from “One”, “Two” and “Three”.

    I haven’t worked out the colouring as to which is which, though 😦

    If you want half an hours peace and quiet its a must have. I recorded several episodes back to back.

    Just discovered Midnight Garden, my youngest loves the Tombliboos and Upsadaisy.
    Where can I buy Tombliboo dolls ?

  7. markharrison Says:

    I don’t know about Tombliboos. are listing the following as “available for pre-order”:

    – Ninky Nonk
    – Makka Pakka bath toy
    – dancing Iggle Piggle dancing plush
    – Iggle Piggle blanket

    Due for release on the 28th July (10 days time), so I’m guessing they’ll be in the shops come August.
