The Teletubbies slide down the slide and fall over happily. Then the Magic Windmill starts spinning and they run out and they watch some children play with balls of different shapes and sizes. In Teletubbyland, something happens to Dipsy's hat. It changes sizes, first it's too small and then too big. When he shows the other Teletubbies, they are very surprised. But then, Dipsy's hat changes back to it's normal size. Now it's just right.

Featuring: Patrick Carvey, Henry Crossman, Marshall Ingham, Freya Knibb, Matthew Paine, Amelia Paul, Olivia Phelps, Katie & Georgina Phillipps, Candisha & Kyishas Thompson and James Turner
