She’s the household name in almost every home. And if you haven’t heard of her… where have you been!?
For those of you watching Bluey day in and day out, you may recognise each character. But, do you know how the family is connected or how each friend fits into the picture? It’s almost as if we need a list of all the Bluey characters to guide us.
Most interestingly, we hear of Bandit and Chilli heading off for work, but we don’t ever see what they actually DO for work…..well, here’s the goss!! Behold, the definitive list of all the Bluey characters you’ll encounter.
THE FAMILY TREE
Nana – Don’t you just love Nana!
She’s adorable and sweet, never says no to a challenge and loves her grandchildren like… well, like a Nana ought too!
She and Granddad have retired to the Gold Coast, and what a beautiful place to be. She and Granddad are parents to Bandit.
Granddad – He’s that guy in the background right?
The one that hilariously never got asked to try the floss, yet was there anyways giving it a go. He’s the cuddly Granddad, living it up in sunny Queensland.
Oh and his name is Bob!
Bandit – This heart-throb of a dad has ‘dad of the year’ written all over him!
No matter how he’s feeling he always musters up the energy to invent amazing imaginative games with his family.
What you may not have realised is he is an archaeologist by trade (cue jokes about a dog and a bone)!! He’s also totally besotted by his beautiful wife.
Chilli – The super cool mum of Bluey and Bingo.
She’s fun, sporty, witty and has a heart of gold.
She can find an important lesson to be learned in all situations and makes everyday a good day.
Fun fact: Notice how Chill has to head off to work sometimes? Well that’s because she started back at her pre-kids job, working in Airport Security. Sniffer dog perhaps? I’ll leave that up to you.
Bluey – The 6-year-old, playful and chatty Blue Healer. Bluey is imaginative in her games and loves role playing.
No matter who is involved, you can be sure to see her telling everybody what they should be doing!
She’s the sort of big sister that needs to be reminded of her little sister’s capabilities. Remember her listening ears?
Bingo – This 4-year-old little sister is a Red Healer – just like mum!
She’s the quieter sister, ready to play, but timid at the same time. Sometimes she forgets to be brave and share her feelings.
Bingo adores her sister, Bluey and loves the games they play. But sometimes she gets lost in a world of her own… oh look a butterfly!
Uncle Stripe – This little brother of Bandit is a gentle soul who seems to always go with the flow.
He has 2 busy and, at times, crazy kids and doesn’t pass up the opportunity to challenge his big bro.
He’s also always wishing he could be watching the cricket.
Aunt Trixie – A hockey playing Aunty with personality plus. She’s Uncle Stripe’s Wife, and mother to Muffin and Socks.
She’s totally relatable with the love she has for her 2 little ones, but equally for her love of getting the heck out of there for some much needed mum time!
Muffin – Bluey and Bingo’s cousin who always tells it likes it is.
Did you know her favourite capsicum colour is Red? Yep, there’s some useful information you probably didn’t need.
She makes us all sigh when she’s bouncing off the walls from lack of sleep – yep we know them days!
Socks – The littlest member of the family, who is adorably learning to speak.
She’s the 1-year-old baby sister of Muffin, who seems to easily keep up with her bigger cousins.
And I know, I know you’re all wondering what her favourite colour capsicum is….GREEN!
Jack – A lively little man whose best friends with Rusty.
Rusty – Bluey’s friend from the bush. And he rides a motorbike, which makes him extra cool… and also probably a parent’s worst nightmare!
Lucky – The Heelers’ next door neighbour.
Pat – Lucky’s dad. Pat is the best next door neighbour, who goes along with the crazy games of the Heelers – whether he knows it or not!
Mackenzie – With the oh-so-cool New Zealand accent.
Indy – The most trustworthy friend, with a big imagination. She’s also so relatable with her list of no-go foods!
Honey – The friend with the big green glasses, who’s mindful of others and oh-so-thoughtful.
Coco – Pretty in pink! She reminds us all of our daughters. So enthusiastic but impatient!
Snickers – This little friend is a machine, atom, star loving pup.
Chloe – Bluey’s best friend. A kind, gentle and smart little lady.
Judo – A neighbour. With a sharp looking headband, if I do say so myself.
Jean Luc – Bluey’s future husband (not really, but I sure hope we get to see her reconnect with her camping buddy).
The Terriers – They’re a force to be reckoned with. They would fight your battles until the end! Well the end of the school day that is.
Missy – The little girl in pigtails, who steps up and shows her bravery….when she’s ready to, of course.
Buddy – Ahhhh Buddy, the patience of a caterpillar just waiting to fly.
Winston – A very obedient breed, as he likes to point out. An old soul.
Calypso – An Aussie Shepherd and Bluey’s Prep teacher (preschool). She’s the teacher of everyone’s dreams: loving, patient and let’s the kids’ minds go where their imagination takes them – with plenty of encouragement of course!
So there you have it, Bluey, the loveable Blue Healer has an equally lovable extended family and friends, which has me thinking, who do you relate to most?
