Teaches Kids to Trust Adults that may be a risk

While Blippi is educational is some regards, it is teaching children that adults who talk and act like a child are safe and trustworthy. In real life, if a grown man walked up to your kid and acted like this they may say, "This guy is like Blippi", let me go with him. Not okay. Please talk to your children about normal adult behavior and if you are allowing them to watch this show, ensure the know he is not a real guy and the show if for fun and learning. In all shows I actively explain to my children what is real and what is fake. Blippi is fake. He is not real. Teach your kids that, so they do not hop in a car with a childish acting man trying to abduct them.

Probably the worst kid's program out there.

The contents are hardly educational, Blippi acts like an idiot on camera without any consideration that kids imitate him in the things he does. His movements are unnatural for an adult imitating a child. Promotes unhealthy habits, for example. Throw items around, make a mess, and don't bother cleaning up. Indirectly promoting violence by smashing things up. His mannerism is not an accurate depiction of a normal child's behavior. Not the kind of stuff you want to show your kids if you want them to grow up to be upstanding citizens.
