Ask any parent and they’ll tell you that the best kids show on TV today is Bluey. The charming and smart animated series about an Australian Blue Heeler cattle dog has everything: Lessons, jokes, hidden grown-up messages, adorable accents, recurring characters, and lots and lots of episodes for both kids and adults to enjoy. (We even know a few kid-free adults who watch it. Seriously.)

Whether your kids are just getting into Bluey, or you’re just super stoked about the third season reportedly hitting Disney+ sometime this year, you’re going to want to check out the market of cute and fun Bluey merchandise. Here’s a guide to some of the best Bluey shirts, books, puzzles and toys you can buy right now.

It’s easy to see why the Ultimate Caravan Adventure set was one of this holiday season’s hottest toys. It’s cute, well-made and seems like a great value.

Bring the fun and imaginative play home with this kit that includes Bluey’s dad’s perpetually dirty SUV (parents get it), as well as the Heeler family RV, which flips open to reveal a bedroom, kitchen and dining room perfectly sized for the three Bluey figures included in the set.

The set also comes with 12 accessory pieces, including two surfboards, a campfire and a dining set. Hook the SUV up to the RV, and you’ll be cruising the living room floor in no time.

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that kids love stuffies. That’s why it makes perfect sense that the team behind Bluey has made quite a few Bluey plush toys, from a soft and cuddly toy Bluey to a run of Bluey’s cool cousins and friends.

For our money, the biggest bang for your buck will come from one of two sets. First, the Bluey and Bingo Mini Plush bundle, which finds the two sister siblings turned into 8-inch stuffies. It’s a great deal for under $20, especially considering that for a lot of kids, Bingo is just as essential as Bluey.

If you’re looking for something bigger and don’t mind choosing just one dog, then the 18-inch huggable Bluey is a great pick. The doll is the perfect size for kids to cradle as they go to sleep, and it’s squishy.

The Bluey merchandising team has really gone all out with the number of posable figure sets available, releasing everything from a four-pack of figures of the Heeler family to a surprisingly hard-to-find two-pack of Bingo and Bluey dressed up like “the Grannies.”

You can mix and match the sets how you’d like, though if you want, say, a Grannies set because you love the accessories but you already have the “fancy restaurant” set, then you’re going to end up with two Blueys and two Bingos.

You really can’t go wrong by starting with a mega-set of eight figures from Walmart, which comes with the Heeler clan and four of Bluey and Bingo’s besties: Chloe, Indy, Honey, and Socks.

A playhouse that looks just like the Heeler’s too-cute bungalow, the Pop ‘N’ Fun Play Tent is pretty much just what it sounds like. With a pop-through window and a roll up front door, the tent offers kids a little privacy and a bit of a spark for creative play.

This is a great item to have on hand in the event that your toddler requests a Bluey-themed birthday party.

An Amazon exclusive that makes stocking up your Bluey stash a breeze, the Mega Home Bundle is just that. Pick this up, and you’ll get the Bluey Family Home play set, which has doors that open and a large wall panel that can be converted into a patio.

You’ll also get a number of pieces of furniture, the entire Heeler family of figures and Bandit’s BBQ play set, complete with a picnic table, sausages and a salad.

Of course, if you don’t want all of this, you can always just opt to pick up the house or the figures separately, but where’s the fun in that?

If you’re looking to add yet another dimension to Bluey’s house, why not install a pool? Of course, the pool in this case will be the Bluey Pool Playset, as seen in the episode called “The Pool.”

The set includes a Bluey figure dressed in a swimsuit, four fun pool accessories like floaties and goggles, and a cool diving board. You can even fill the pool with water and let Bluey splash around for real, which is a fun perk.

If you love the storytelling of Bluey but don’t want your kids to burn through hours of TV every day, there’s a solution for that: Bluey books. There are a number of books inspired by episodes, including Grannies, Good Night Fruit Bat and My Dad Is Awesome, which would also make a great Father’s Day present for any Bandit-admiring papa.

If you can’t pick just one—and who could, really?—there’s always For Real Life, which is a story collection made up of four different books, including The Creek and The Beach.

If you want to add even more books to your stockpile—albeit books of a different nature—there’s a wealth of Bluey-themed sticker and coloring books on the market as well.

Walmart has three good ones on offer: the descriptively named Bluey Coloring Book and two sticker books, Bluey: Time To Play and Bluey And Friends.

All kids love playgrounds, but parents aren’t always able to take kids as much as they would like. Bring the magic of the playground home with a few different playground-themed Bluey play sets.

If you’re thinking small, pick up the Bluey Park Playset, which comes with a slide, a swing, and a cute little Bluey figure in a wagon.

If you’re looking to up your playground game and don’t mind spending just a few bucks more, there’s the Bluey Deluxe Park Themed Playset, which not only has the swing and slide, but also a picnic table, seesaw and four different figures: Bluey, Rusty, Indy and Bingo. You won’t get the wagon, but you will get a Potaroo figure, which is pretty great.

If you want to take the play even further, you could also expand your set—and, again, you’re going to get a second Bingo and Bluey here—and get the Bluey Vehicle 2-pack, which finds the siblings cruising around town on their scooters, helmets and all. It’s a super cute set, just like everything else Bluey has inspired.

Help your kids get excited about bedtime with soft deluxe Bluey pajama sets. There are a couple of different ones on the market, including a pink set, and, aptly, a blue set. Each snug-fit set comes with two shirts and two pairs of pants, so you can mix and match at will.

Ask any parent who’s struggled with potty training, and they’ll tell you: Getting your little one excited about their new underpants is a big part of the process.

If your kiddo is a Bluey fan, you’re in luck: They do make Bluey underpants for both boys and girls. Each set contains seven pairs of underwear emblazoned with fun, silly drawings of Bluey and Bingo. They come in bright colors, and Kohl’s shoppers seem to love them, with one buyer of the boys’ briefs noting in their rating that “our little guy loved them.”

There are quite a few licensed Bluey shirts on the market for kids, like this long-sleeve graphic tee, as well as some non-licensed options for grown-ups, mostly from Etsy.

These shirts celebrate everything from Hammerbarn to Stumpfest and their deep references will impress all the coolest parents at the playground.

We really love this Grannies shirt, though, which features poor Bingo sprawled across the ground dressed as Janet, exclaiming, “I slipped on ma beans!” You can pick up in a wide range of sizes and colors, so you can customize it to how you’d really like it.

If you want to add some Bluey to your family game night, look no further than these new and fun games, including a board game inspired by the “Shadowlands” episode of the show.

If you’re looking for something a little simpler, there’s always the Bluey 5-in-1 card game set, which features enough cards to play Bluey-fied versions of Cheese 'N’ Crackers (Snap), Bluey's Battle (War), Go Fruit Bat (Go Fish), Grannies (Old Maid) and Memory. The cards are larger than those in a normal deck, which means they’re a little easier on smaller hands, too.

If your kids are more into puzzles, you can’t go wrong with a two-pack of character puzzles. The two 36-piece puzzles are packed into canisters made to look like Bluey and Bingo, pointy ears and all. They’re great to take on the go to places like restaurants or Grandma’s house. Target customers say the pieces are sturdy and good quality.
