PARENTS looking for a way to entertain their kids over Easter might consider taking them to a world-famous UK attractions where they can meet Bluey.
The curious Australian Blue Heeler pup will be exploring Kew Gardens for a couple of weeks this spring – and kids are able to join him for a variety of different games and activities.
Kew has promised families some “interactive activities inspired by the show” that are “guaranteed to deliver laughter, discovery and lots of fun”.
The games have been inspired by favourite episodes of the show, making it the perfect day out for Bluey fans.
Kids can also learn about the plants and wildlife found both at Kew and in Bluey’s native Australia during their visit.
Even more excitingly, there’s the chance to meet Bluey at the Gardens at certain times on each of the days the event will be taking place.
The Kew website says: “Combining a celebration of nature and the joy of play with the adventures of a beloved TV character, this is the must-do family activity for the holidays.”
Bluey will also be found at Kew’s other garden, Wakehurst, in Sussex during the same period of time.
The even will be held from March 29 until April 14 and will be included in the price of admission at the London attraction.
Paul Denton from Kew said: “Bluey at Kew is a highlight of this year’s springtime family offer and we’re delighted to bring the hit sensation to life.
“Visitors can look forward to a unique experience set within Kew’s spring landscape and some of the most picturesque parts of the Gardens.
“Bluey promises to be an exciting adventure that will leave families with cherished memories for a very long time.”
Katie Hibbs, from BBC Studios Kids & Family, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to see Bluey at Kew Gardens and Wakehurst this year.
“Combining nature, fun and play with some of the most memorable moments from Bluey’s adventures on the show, Bluey at Kew is guaranteed to be the perfect day out over the Easter period.”
Tickets to Kew start from £9 for youngsters and students, while peak-season family tickets are available from £26.
