A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Each episode of Blippi's Adventures introduces a new educational topic for preschoolers -- animals, American Sign Language, pizza making, trains, slime, etc.
Learning is fun and exciting. It's important to be curious about the world around you.
Positive Role Models
Blippi displays curiosity and amazement about the world around him. He is always joyful, respectful, and inquisitive when others share their knowledge with him.
There is some inclusiveness in the guests Blippi encounters on his field trips, including racial and language diversity, but overall the show lacks diverse representation. Friendly interaction and curiosity are major themes of the show.
