Finding shows that are appropriate for preschoolers can be challenging. Finding ones that keep them interested can be a challenge too. We recently discovered Tickety Toc on Nick Jr. and it has quickly become a favorite.
Tickety Toc follows the everyday adventures of 6-year-old twins, Tommy and Tallulah, as they work to “chime the time” and keep everything running smoothly in Tickety Town. Traveling through the special Tickety Toc clock, where Tommy and Tallulah live, audiences enter a fantastical CGI world of eclectic characters and tag along on exciting escapades filled with slapstick surprises. Tommy and Tallulah’s strong “can do” spirit often produces an unanticipated outcome, but their individual approach to sticky situations and joint resourcefulness always shine through and save the day! Through the twins’ madcap adventures, Tickety Toc explores teamwork, social responsibility and problem solving – important concepts for preschoolers as they learn and grow.
Tickety Toc is a lot of fun, and recently they released a very cute DVD, Tickety Toc: Chime Time Adventures, which follows comedic heroes, twins Tommy and Tallulah, as they race to chime the time…but, as every hour passes and the clock springs to life, things don't always run so smoothly! The first-ever six episode collection brings viewers along as the twins and their adorable friends – Pufferty, McCoggins, Tooteroo, Madame Au Lait, Battersby, Chikidee and Hopparoo – embark on wild storybook shenanigans and hilarious hijinks throughout Tickety Town! In “Chime Time Adventures,” the Tick Tocketeers attempt daring circus acts, wow a crowd with amazing magic tricks, play a giant game of Tickety-Tag and delight in a marvelously messy photo day! The premiere title features episodes “Story Time,” “Painting Time,” “Show Time,” “Bath Time,” “Photo Time” and “Play Time.” In this very first Tickety Toc DVD, every second counts!
It has become one of the most viewed DVDs around here. For that reason, Tickety Toc: Chime Time Adventures gets a big thumbs up and earns a spot on our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide!
