Moonbug and Amazon Expand Blippi’s Universe
Moonbug Entertainment Ltd. and Amazon Kids+ are collaborating again on more fun and entertaining content for kids starring the global sensation, Blippi. The two companies are creating a new, long-form episodic series called “Blippi’s Treehouse,” which will 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,” said Andy Yeatman, Managing Director of the Americas at 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.”
“We can’t wait for Blippi fans to get to know Blippi’s Treehouse and experience the Blippi they love like never before,” said Veronica Pickett, Head of 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.”
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 become one of the world’s most popular preschool entertainers, with over 3 billion minutes streamed on Amazon Prime Video, more than one billion views on YouTube just last month and over 30 million dedicated followers. While Blippi content is available in 8 different languages and on a range of streaming platforms, “Blippi’s Treehouse” is the first new original series set outside the original YouTube show.
Fans of Blippi in the US can see him in a live theatre tour starting on July 5th, bringing the magic of the show to children around the country. The music from both the on-screen show and the live show are now available for streaming on all the major music platforms. Since the start of the year, music from these shows has been streamed over 120 million times, a 90% increase since last year.
