How tall is Iggle Piggle in the night garden?
Iggle piggle measures over 55cm tall!

He always carries his red blanket and tends to fall flat on his back when surprised. He is the main character of the show.

From Magic Roundabout to the Teletubbies, hacks have lazily implied that children's TV is reminiscent of drug experiences. Night Garden is different, it's not on drugs, it is a drug, and one whose soporific qualities are uniquely mystifying.
What Colour is Iggle Piggle's blanket?
He's curious and adventurous, but also vulnerable and modest. Despite his energy he is often in need of reassurance and comfort, which he gets from his best friend Upsy Daisy and his red blanket.
The BBC has agreed to replace a toy doll of Upsy Daisy, a brown-skinned character in the hugely popular children's television show In the Night Garden, after parents complained it had been manufactured to appear white.

Suitable from ages 18 months +.
So In the Night Garden makes a metaphorical explanation for sleep, which is one of the only things in a child's life it can't be accompanied on. That's why you have the image of Iggle Piggle alone on a boat at the start, floating on a dark swelling ocean that's a metaphor for sleep."
Andrew Davenport has stated in an interview from the Guardian that the key inspiration for the series was his own dream world as a child. This started coming into place in 2004, when Davenport created sketches for the characters of Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy and Makka Pakka.
Makka Pakka is a character from the British TV show In The Night Garden.
In the Night Garden has been shot in a real woodland setting in the UK. It makes use of innovations in live character costume technology and CG animation, weaving these together within a stunning natural setting to create a compelling and fully immersive experience for young children.
The creator of In The Night Garden has confirmed that there will be no new series of the BBC's hit children's programme. Andrew Davenport revealed that the corporation has opted against commissioning a new run of the show, which has become a worldwide hit.

Why do children love In the Night Garden?
As well as learning through repetition, children also find it relaxing and comforting. Each episode of In the Night Garden follows a recognisable and predictable structure, ending with the tittifers (colourful exotic birds) singing.
Each of the five colourful carriages on the In The Night Garden Ninky Nonk Musical Activity Train offers endless fun with music, lights, shapes and sounds. At an amazing 78cm in length, this mesmerising pull-along train offers hours of discovery, learning and play with a huge range of exciting and engaging activities.
Makka Pakka lives in a little cave at the edge of the garden and likes nothing more than collecting and washing little stones - he'll often wash the faces of the other characters too. He travels around the garden pushing his Og-Pog vehicle, which carries his soap and sponge, his uff-uff dryer and his special trumpet.
A fellow musician said: "You can imagine the reaction when we found out Nick was the man in the Igglepiggle suit - we fell about laughing. "He's always been part of a cool underground set of musicians so the whole Iggle thing is a bit weird to be honest. That said, good luck to the lad."
There are three Tombliboos - Unn who is red and green, Ooo who is brown and pink and Eee who is pink and yellow. They live together in an extraordinary bush, where they enjoy stacking and sorting their special blocks, banging their drums and making tunes on their piano.
