The Improbabilities Told By Topsy and Tim

The Improbabilities Told By Topsy and Tim

The Improbabilities Told By Topsy and TimWe love Topsy and Tim in our household.

I say “We love Topsy and Tim”, I mean, our little one loves Topsy and Tim. If we ever have left CBeebies on in the background at home, the opening moments of the Topsy and Tim theme tune is enough to get her running to the TV.

Have I ever mentioned her “friends”, Topsy and Tim?

During a recent Topsy and Tim marathon on BBC iPlayer, it occurred to me that there seemed to be a number of…. ¬†improbabilities in the world of Topsy and Tim that just wouldn’t happen in this world.

Here are a number of examples I found.

  1. Kids can break Mummy’s vase.. and she’s THAT OK WITH IT!!
  2. Somehow, when you have 4 preschoolers kicking off, Mummy has found the time to put a well timed pizza in.
  3. Selling / moving house is JUST THAT EASY – AND QUICK!
  4. Having nursery school at home is a GREAT IDEA!! (Seriously, they have room for that? Mummy had time for that?)
  5. That a Mummy and Daddy can put up an outside playhouse the night before a twins 5th birthday, look fresh and awake the next morning, AND still smile at each other.
  6. Loads of cakes (which probably cost a fortune) get chucked on the floor… Mummy is NOT SCREAMING MAD!!!
  7. Christmas Eve evening is just that fun and relaxing! (No last minute wrapping from Mummy and Daddy?)
  8. You’ve moved house, you’re trying to unpack, you’re living out of boxes, a new friend is invited to play, and Mummy is smiling about all of this?
  9. When you’re building a new drive, you really want two 4 year olds around you.
  10. Its possible to build a marble run, so big, and amazing – THAT NO marbles will fly off – and break Mummys vase…

Are there any more that you would add?

*These might be invisible friends… and therefore probably dont count.

  • Over the past year of spending more time with childrens’ TV than usual, have come to the conclusion that you just have to give up on making sense of any of it. At least T&T are humans. Look at the Octonauts – some of them are walking vegetables (or something like that)!
    And then I have to remember I was perfectly fine with watching walking, talking shoes, and cats that had an owner you never saw, so I can’t really say much about what is on now.
    But If I did, I’d have a lot to say. There is so much non-reality in so many of the shows……but then again, it is for kids – even I’d rather not have to think about reality at the moment: why inflict that on the kids too?
