Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Bluey Easter is a holiday-themed special episode of the beloved preschool show. Like in the rest of the series, lead character Bluey and her sister Bingo are great role models for imagination and problem-solving. There are some brief moments where characters argue with each other or show sadness, but it's quickly resolved. One of the stories in the episode features older characters who have a crush on each other, but it's presented subtly and will likely go over preschoolers' heads. The story focuses only on the Easter Bunny aspect of the holiday and does not touch on religion. Overall, this special is great to get preschoolers in the Easter spirit.

What's the Story?
Australian puppy Bluey and her sister Bingo are worried that the Easter Bunny will forget them again like it did last year. Their worst fears appear to be confirmed when they wake up to find empty Easter baskets, but they quickly realize that their baskets contain clues to help them find their bounty. The sisters follow the scavenger hunt around their house, even bravely going into Dad's stinky toilet to find a clue. Bluey and Bingo use their creativity and problem-solving skills to eventually find their Easter-y treasure.
Is It Any Good?
This Easter special has all of the same aspects of the regular series that kids (and their grown-ups) love. The sisters' whimsical imaginations are bottomless, and there's a great balance of silliness and thoughtfulness. Bluey and Bingo talk like real kids, and kid viewers will feel like they're having a playdate with their funniest friend. They are also very emotionally vulnerable, and so there are some authentically tender moments (like when they think the Easter Bunny forgot them because they're "small forgettable children"). Grown-ups will also appreciate the relatability of Mum and Dad: it becomes clear that they're to blame for the "Easter Bunny" forgetting Easter the previous year, and the "Escape" story centers around Mum and Dad trying to get away from the kids for some alone time. This special is another great Bluey show that kids and grown-ups alike will enjoy.
