ABC KIDS megahit Bluey returns with new episodes from today.

The Ludo Studio animation is the most watched show ever on iview.

Series 1 Ep 27- 52
After taking Australia by storm last October, Bluey returns to ABC KIDS for more fun and games, with 26 brand new, highly anticipated episodes screening daily at 8am from April 1. With over 21 million views and counting, Bluey is the ABC’s breakout success of 2018 and is the most watched show on ABC iview.

Bluey is a loveable, inexhaustible little six year-old Blue Heeler dog, who lives with her Mum, Dad and her four year old sister, Bingo. Like every kid her age, what Bluey likes best is to play games. She takes the everyday events of family life like going to the shops or visiting the zoo and transforms them into unique gameplay, turning everyday moments into idiosyncratic adventures.

Bluey and Bingo both love to role-play. Whether they are pirates, mountaineers, grannies or pretend neighbours, they love to try on different characters just for fun. And it’s never long before Mum or Dad are dragged in to take part. Bandit and Chilli both work and, tired as they may be, they are also dedicated parents who appreciate the value of time spent playing with the kids, even if it means searching the house for fairies or pretending to be a zoo animal.

Unstructured, self-directed play allows Bluey to use her creativity while developing her imagination, as well as her mental, physical and emotional resilience. It allows her to create and explore her world autonomously, conquering her fears while practicing adult roles, sometimes with her sister or with other children. and always with her parents to guide her.

Gameplay is how Bluey integrates the adult world into her own; it helps Bluey and her sister learn important lessons and deal with the emotional ups and downs of growing up while having fun.
