A Lot or a Little?

Positive Role Models
The show's main characters, Blippi and Meekah, are consistently excited, curious, and polite. Characters don't seem to explore a wide range of emotions beyond joy.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Blippi's Treehouse is a mix of live action and animation. It stars Stevin John as Blippi and J. Kaitlin Becker as his best friend Meekah and is set in a tree house that includes a Maker Space, a library, and a DJ booth. They take field trips to places in the real world and occasionally shifts to animated segments. This show targets preschoolers and focuses on building curiosity around science-related topics, with less focus on social and emotional learning skills.
Is It Any Good?
This high-energy show does a great job of exploring each topic in depth, and these deep dives will challenge and build kid viewers' knowledge. The diverse range of experts that visit the show also provide great exposure and positive role models for children. Blippi's high level of energy and constant optimism does sometimes present as over-the-top and unnatural; it would be nice to see a wider range of realistic emotions and personalities among the central cast.
