Moonbug Entertainment and Amazon Kids+ are collaborating again on more content for kids starring “Blippi.” The two companies are creating a new, long-form episodic series called “Blippi’s Treehouse,” to premiere exclusively on the Amazon Kids+ streaming service at a future date.
“In just under a year, we have delivered on our promise to families around the world: bringing ‘Blippi’ to more platforms, with new storylines and even more great content,” says Andy Yeatman, managing director, Americas, Moonbug. “‘Blippi’s’ contagious curiosity inspires kids everywhere to get excited about learning new things and we are thrilled by Amazon’s dedication to educational kids programming.”
“Blippi” started as an online, live action, educational children’s show for kids ages 2-5 years old. In the few years since the show was first created, “Blippi” has more than one billion views on YouTube just last month and more than 30 million dedicated followers. While “Blippi” content is available in eight languages and on a range of streaming platforms, “Blippi’s Treehouse” is the first new original series set outside the original YouTube show.
In addition, fans of “Blippi” in the U.S. can see him in a live theatre tour starting on July 5, bringing the magic of the show to children around the country. The music from both the on-screen show and the live one are now available for streaming on music platforms. Since the start of the year, music from these shows has been streamed more than 120 million times.
“We can’t wait for ‘Blippi’ fans to get to know ‘Blippi’s Treehouse’ and experience the ‘Blippi’ they love like never before,” says Veronica Pickett, head, Amazon Kids+ original series. “No one brings entertainment and education together for kids quite like Amazon Kids+ and our friend ‘Blippi.’ We know the millions of Amazon Kids+ subscribers will love these new ‘Blippi’ adventures.”
