Violence & Scariness
A few challenges come with consequences, like getting a bucket of water dumped on the head. These are mostly for parents, who react with enthusiasm.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Blippi and Meekah's Game Show is a spin-off of the preschool show Blippi. In the series, Blippi and his best friend Meekah host a game show between two sets of families. The teams compete, one at a time, in age-appropriate challenges involving strength, skill, and teamwork. Performance is not directly evaluated, and points are only scored at the end. The hosts are always kind and encouraging, guiding the contests when they have trouble. Some challenges include consequences such as getting soaked with water, but these are mostly targeted at the parents. Diversity is present but limited to race/ethnicity, with the majority of families of contests representing traditional family structures. Winners receive a membership to an interactive children's museum.
