Friendly fictional dogs are a mainstay of the world of kids’ entertainment, which comes as no surprise given the role of real dogs in our lives. My favorite was always Snoopy, but perhaps you were a Blue’s Clues fan growing up, just like your little one! Blue’s Clues may have undergone a revamp since then, but Blue is still the same bouncy, lovable pup she always was.

Fans of Blue’s Clues and You! range from toddler to preschool age, so the kinds of toys you might choose for your Blue enthusiast will differ according to age. Either way, toys for young children must be both safe and durable. That means no sharp edges, small pieces toddlers might choke on or toxic materials. And in terms of durability, you want to know that the toy you’re considering can withstand the rough play of a preschooler before you buy it!

The best toys for toddlers and young children inspire imaginative play or involve sensory or cognitive stimulation. Interactive toys are great as they engage kids for longer and keep their minds active as they play. On the other hand, simple toys like plushies and figures provide a canvas for all kinds of imaginative games. 

All the toys below fit the bill and will indeed have your little Blue fan jumping for joy!

Frequently Asked Questions About Blue’s Clues

🙋What age group is Blues Clues aimed at?

Blue’s Clues is aimed at toddlers through to preschoolers. What makes this show so attractive for young children is that it treats them as active participants and makes them an integral part of every episode. Josh asks kids questions directly, giving them time to answer and the show engages their minds by asking them to find clues to help solve the mystery. 

This is a significant improvement from most shows that kids simply watch passively! The commitment to interactivity is evident in the animation and live action, allowing kids to imagine themselves helping Josh and Blue in the show.

🙋Is Blues Clues most popular with girls or boys?

Both girls and boys equally love Blues Clues. While some kids’ shows are more geared to boys or girls, Blue’s Clues and You! is aimed at all children. Although Blue is a girl, she isn’t designed with all the trappings kids associate with girliness. 

Many people first assume she is a boy because she is Blue! In this way, the show challenges stereotypes about boys and girls. From its interactivity and silly humor to its fun games, upbeat songs and friendly characters, this show is one that all young children can enjoy.

So… What Blue’s Clues Toy Should I Get?

The best Blue’s Clues for your little one depends on the toy you’re looking for. The Crayola Blues Clues Color Wonder Activity Pad or the LeapFrog Handy Dandy Notebook are fantastic choices if you want a toy to keep kids occupied while traveling. 

If your kiddo requires a bedtime companion, one of the plushies could be perfect. And if you want something to get their imaginations flowing and their brain cogs turning, one of the playsets is ideal. 

If you’ve found a Blue’s Clues toy you love that wasn’t included in this list, give me a shout!
