The thing about Bluey is that, while the series is clearly designed for pre-schoolers, adults can love it, too. The cult show – which centres on the life of a hyperactive six-year-old puppy – joins a select few cartoons (Toy Story, Looney Tunes, etc) that satisfy both audiences, as well renowned for its humour and insights into the modern family as it is for its vibrant, dazzling animation.
Fans of Bluey, young and old, will be delighted by this new rental in Brisbane. Airbnb has teamed up with BBC Studios – the show’s creators – to create a fun, bright replica of Bluey’s family home. Dubbed the Heeler Home, the property features an impressive degree of attention to detail, including the show’s yellow façade, pinkish roof, red letterbox and bone-topped chimney.
Inside, the house is faithfully decorated in playful pastels and Bluey-themed knick-knacks. The playroom contains replicas of iconic Bluey toys like the Chattermax and magic xylophone. If your kid (or you, for that matter) is a huge fan, it’s pretty much heaven. Here are a few more snaps.
Traditional residential Queenslander architecture inspired the animated Heeler Home, so it makes sense that the home has been built in Brisbane. It took more than two years for Airbnb to build the rental, but despite all that effort, it’ll actually only be available on the platform for one weekend.
One family of four will be able to snap up the rental for two nights from February 18 to 20. Due to Australia’s current travel rules, it will likely only be available to Australians, and will cost AU$20 (£10.50. $14) in total for both nights. The booking will be dished out on a first-come, first-served basis, so when reservations open at 9pm GMT on February 14 (or 7am Queensland time), you’ll have to be quick.
