The Tiddlytubbies were first introduced in 2015 in the episode "Babies."

According to the Teletubbies' website, they are "eight smaller Teletubbies" that live with the Teletubbies in their own special part of the Home Dome.

The Tiddlytubbies' names are Daa Daa (green), Mi-Mi (sky blue), Ping (pink), Baa (deep blue), RuRu (orange), Duggle Dee (red), Nin (purple), and Umby Pumby (yellow).

There is no other information available about the relationship between the four Teletubbies and the eight smaller Tiddlytubbies.

UPDATE

When asked about the relation between the Teletubbies and the Tiddlytubbies, a spokesperson for the Teletubbies told BuzzFeed News that the Tiddlytubbies are "adorable, smaller versions of the Teletubbies," introduced to "bring a younger perspective to the show and reinforce the sense of nurture and caring." They added that the Teletubbies play "an elder sibling role to the Tiddlytubbies and help look after them under the guidance of the Voice Trumpets."
