Bluey hit out screens a little over a year ago and very quickly gained a massive following of true-blue Aussie kids who can't get enough of the adventurous family of Blue Heelers. It's only now that we're seeing Bluey toys arrive in stores, and given the popularity of these pups, they're predicted to be huge hits for Christmas.

What is Bluey about?
Bluey is an animated Australian series, set in the sunny town of Brisbane, that revolves around the daily goings-on of a very lovable family of Aussie dogs. The series stands out proudly amongst a sea of other children's entertainment for the simple fact that it is relatable, funny and heartfelt. In fact, a lot of Aussie adults are loving this as much as the kids are (I know I am!).
Bluey is the show's protagonist, and she's a six-year-old Blue Heeler who is massively inquisitive and loves a good adventure. Bingo is Bluey's younger sister, a Red Heeler, who is just four years old and follows her big sister pretty much everywhere.
Bandit is is Bluey's dad, an archaeologist; and Chilli is Bluey's mum, who works part-time in airport security and drops some one-liners that more than a few Aussie parents can relate to!
You can watch Bluey on ABC Kids all throughout the week.
