In the Night Garden

Every day at 12:30am ET


Igglepiggle is physical and energetic—a well-loved teddy who is always jumping and bouncing. He is curious and adventurous, but also vulnerable and modest. Despite his energy, he’s often in need of reassurance and comfort. In fact, any sort of surprise can prove to be too much for him, and he simply falls over (though he quickly sits back up and starts again)! His two main sources of support are Upsy Daisy, his very good friend, and his blanket, which rarely leaves his possession.

Upsy Daisy

Upsy Daisy is a happy and optimistic dolly. She’s confident and demonstrative, and loves nothing more than dancing throughout the garden, her tummy chime-tinkling as she goes. More often than not she’ll convince others to join in her a special dance, too! She and Igglepiggle are the best of friends. Her favourite thing is her skirt, which she inflates whenever she’s about to dance! She also has a special megaphone to ensure that all in the garden can hear her, as well as a bed with a mind of its own.

Makka Pakka

Makka Pakka is a pat-a-cake toy who lives in a little cave, at the end of a gully, at the edge of the garden. He likes nothing more than collecting and washing little stones. He also enjoys washing the faces of the other toys in the garden. To do so, he has a lovely big sponge and bar of purple soap, as well as a special face-dryer, all of which he wheels around on his Og-pog. Because he’s among the smallest in the garden he also has a trumpet with which he announces his arrival to the other toys.

The Tombliboos

The Tombliboos are tumbly, knockabout pepper-pot toys. Unn is red and green, Ooo is brown and pink, and Eee is pink and yellow. They live in an extraordinary bush in the garden that’s filled with endless levels, interconnected by staircases and slides. The Tombliboos totter about their bush and the garden as a group. Their trousers tend to fall down at unexpected times, so much so that they don’t bother to wear them inside at all, hanging them up on a little clothesline instead. When inside, they can be found playing their piano or banging their drums, or stacking and sorting their building blocks.
