The stores will be decked out with Hammerbarn signs and theming, letting families experience the joy of Bluey’s imagination. Bunnings will also be offering free Bluey-themed DIY kids workshops every weekend, along with exclusive Bluey products and limited edition Hammerbarn merchandise that fans won’t want to miss.

For an added dose of Bluey fun, stores will host scavenger hunts and coloring activities all month long. Special meet and greet events with the characters Bluey and Bingo themselves will also happen on certain days at flagship stores.

In the classic Bluey episode “Hammerbarn,” the Heeler family heads out on a weekend trip to their local hardware store.

They set out to pick up a pizza oven but their shopping spree takes an imaginative turn when Bluey and Bingo start tossing all kinds of other stuff into the cart too. The kids end up building miniature houses out of the random hardware store items, topping them with garden gnome ‘husbands.’
