(Age: Preschool - 5) Highly recommended. If you have a pre-schooler in your house then you would have probably heard of Bluey (or had to do the dance), you may have been asked to play Keepy Uppy or even Mount Mum and Dad!! Or you may just be wondering what I am talking about . . .
Bluey is a 6 year old blue heeler from Queensland who is energetic, funny and inquisitive and with the help of her younger sister Bingo gets into hilarious and somewhat educational situations in every episode of the ABCkids show. The award winning series has now been turned into board books and also an activity book- both of which were met with squeals of delight by my 5 year old. We read Fruit Bat which is a glow in the dark book where Bluey doesn't want to go to sleep, and upon finding out that fruit bats don't sleep at night either decides to dream about them! We loved that the story was just as awesome as the TV show and the illustrations are just as bright and engaging.
We also received the Activity Book Time to play which was a huge hit with miss 5 and has been used every day in the last week! There are over 80 stickers to use and lots of the familiar games from the TV show are represented within the book which was another bonus in this Bluey fest!
The creator and illustrator have been very clever in producing these first titles, they are familiar and loved by so many families and may just be the next best thing to help tired parents get their children away from Bluey on the screen, as they can now read Bluey in bed!
We loved it, especially how true it was to the TV show! 5 stars from us!
