Today, Josh, Blue and their crew are inviting kids across Australia to play Blue’s Clues & You! in a whole new way!
The brand new Blue’s Clues & You! Listen and Play Alexa skill from Nickelodeon, will have preschoolers jumping for joy as their favourite characters come to life at home and take them on fun-filled clue-led adventures.
Available now on Alexa-enabled devices, the skill encourages preschoolers to use their imaginations and practice listening and critical thinking, while helping Josh figure out Blue’s Clues.
With 10 different storylines, there’s a new adventure every time you play, featuring friends like Magenta, Tickety Tock, Shovel and Pail, and more.
Play Expert, Catherine Sewell, said: “Children engage with the world through play. Their sense of wonder, curiosity and experimentation drive the learning and development needed in order to thrive. By leading children through a series of clues, Blue’s Clues & You! taps into their natural curiosity and helps them develop problem solving skills.
“Blue’s Clues & You! delightfully takes children on a journey where they learn through play, song, drawing and imagination. When children play, their brain lights up with new connections and they develop important physical, cognitive, emotional and social skills. Play increases engagement, and engagement increases learning!”
Parents can enable the skill by saying, “Alexa, open Blue’s Clues,” and granting permission in the Alexa App.
A remake of the ground-breaking, curriculum-driven interactive series Blue’s Clues, Blue’s Clues & You! has a new generation of preschoolers searching for clues with beloved puppy Blue and new live-action host Josh (Josh Dela Cruz).
The series features new CG-animation for Blue and Magenta, brand-new elements and refreshed iconic items from the original series including The Thinking Chair, an updated Handy Dandy Notebook equipped with smartphone technology and the return of fan-favourite characters.
