Lessee, in the Teletubbies you've got a "good cause" (ie: PBS) telling parents it's okay to leave their kid's early childhood development to a virtual, non-interactive world which distorts how they'll interact with reality. In Microsoft you've got a big company pushing mediocre products on ignorant consumers. It's only natural that the Teletubbies and Microsofties team up. Shudder:

Once the radio transmitter is hooked up to a video recorder, the toys can interact with the TV or videos that appear up to a range of 15 feet away from the transmitter.
