Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po are set to be the next PlayStation stars. The BBC has developed a Teletubbies console game aimed at children as young as two. Priced at £24.99, Play with the Teletubbies is the first PlayStation game designed specifically for toddlers. The move by the BBC, which itself admitted the game had no educational value, has sparked worries from psychologists and education experts. "Children tend to get addicted to computer games," warned Dr Mark Griffiths, head of psychology at Trent University. "I have come across two cases of three-year-olds playing on computer games for over 14 hours a day, which is totally wrong," he told the Daily Mail. Auntie Beeb hit back by saying the game would be more educational than other more conventional forms of kids' entertainment. "People may be concerned, but this is better than plonking a child in front of a video. At least with this they have interaction with the characters on screen," said Dave Lee, director of BBC Multimedia. Presumably the concept of kicking a football around with other children is now outdated. Other PlayStation games up the BBC's sleeve for pre-school kids include Noddy and Bob the Builder. ® Related Stories Sony sells 980,000 PlayStation 2 consoles in two days Sony slaps patent suit on PlayStation emulator developer Technology takes second place to Teletubbies
