Meet the playset that reimagines a fan-favorite show — as a certain young Blue Heeler would say — for real life.
Bluey is one of the most popular preschool TV shows right now, loved by kids and parents alike. (There’s even going to be a Bluey float in this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!) And thanks to the Bluey Ultimate Lights & Sounds Playhouse, kids can bring the everyday antics of the Heeler family into their playrooms.
The playset from Moose Toys has plenty of great features for kids ages 3 and up. It is more than 1 foot tall and, when it is opened up, is 2.5 feet wide. There are seven rooms in the house, including a bathroom, a dining room, two bedrooms, a sitting room, a kitchen, and a dance room for the Bluey and Bingo figures.
The Heeler siblings come with the set as 2-inch-scale figures, but Mum and Dad are sold separately. Kids can also dance with Bluey and Bingo by placing their feet onto square pegs on the dance floor, then pushing the green lever to make them spin.
This set already has plenty of potential for imaginative play, but it also comes with 15 accessories to bring the house together, including furniture and toys for Bluey to play with. While the backgrounds of each room are permanent, kids aren’t restrained in how they set up the house.
There is also a sheet of stickers that kids can use to decorate the house and furniture. For example, there are cushion stickers to put on the dining room chairs and an umbrella stand sticker to put next to the front door. Kids technically can put the stickers on the set themselves, but an adult may want to take over sticker duties so they look nice and neat.
But there are still more fun features to explore in this house. Kids can also press the octopus button in the dance room to play music and trigger lights in the same room. There are more than 50 sounds and phrases that kids will hear, including dance music, the Bluey theme song, and conversations between Bluey and Bingo! Good news: Parents don’t need to worry about the noise because the music isn’t too loud. Plus, when kids are done playing with the noises and lights, the house goes to sleep to conserve its batteries.
There is some light assembly required with the Bluey Ultimate Lights & Sounds Playhouse, but it doesn’t take more than a few minutes to complete. There are bushes that need to be attached to each wall of the house that help it stand upright. Parents will also need a Phillips-head screwdriver and two AAA batteries to get the music and lights working.
Between decorating the house, playing with the music, and recreating scenes from the show (or inventing their own!), this playset has days worth of fun for little Bluey fans.
