Life with toddlers –unpredictable, challenging, tiring, and yes, it can also be hair cringing for the terrible two’s or threes moment. One thing, however, is that it is also heart-warming, very fulfilling, and FUN! That’s the thing about us adults, some of us have been so engrossed keeping up with the day-to-day life that we forgot what it’s like to relax, unwind, laugh, or to let go and bust out a laugh or two. Having our kids taught me that, and more. I have also realized that I care a lot about the things that keep him occupied and entertained.
Sure, like any other parent, I want our kids to learn their ABC’s, Numbers, correct pronunciation, but it is a big PLUS if he can also learn some moral values too! On that same note, this is what makes Bluey one of our go-to animated shows to watch. The series revolves around a blue dog that turns every day into exciting adventures with a strong focus on the imaginative play while teaching life lessons.
Our son Josiah King is very much into Bluey. Their family of four is a version of ours. Where he gets to be Bluey, and the younger sibling is his baby brother. So when Moose Toys brought the cute characters from the show to life, you bet we were thrilled! The line is built around a traditional pre-school range of figures, playsets, and even vehicles so the whole family can recreate their favorite Bluey moments or imagine their own. Here’s a closer look!
Bluey Figures and Playsets
Bluey & Friends Mini Plush
From this collection, he immediately fell in love with the mini plush toys and even brought them to bed with him. He sleeps with Bluey and “Baby” Bingo. Instead of reading him books as of late, he prefers that we play pretend and talks like the characters before he falls asleep.
For the figures and playsets, he enjoys bringing them out to our backyard to let the family explore outdoors. I honestly find it cute and very endearing as he goes off and squeals “honk, honk, beep, beep!”.
Somehow he loves pointing the side view mirrors upward. Whatever it is, it plays a role in his imaginary adventure with Bluey and the family.

For us, as parents, Bluey is definitely on top of our must-watch kids show that we highly recommend. The show is engaging, educational, and, most of all, FUN! It inspires the whole family to play together and tap into the creative side of play –imagination.

Personally, my favorite part of this series is how they highlight the character’s developing imagination, along with physical, mental, and emotional resilience. All of which are very important for a child’s overall development.
