Wackadoo! Bluey commemorative birth certificates available in Queensland

Mar 2, 2020

Queenslanders can now get their very own Bluey commemorative birth certificate featuring Australia’s favourite Queensland Heeler family.

A licensing deal between BBC Studios and the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages, Queensland, will see three commemorative certificates inspired by the popular animated series available from Monday 2 March 2020.

Each bespoke design was created by the team behind Bluey, Emmy® award winning and Brisbane- based production studio, Ludo Studio. Bluey Queensland encapsulates the quintessential Queensland neighbourhood with frangipani and jacaranda lined streets and Queensland houses. Bluey Brisbane showcases the view of the city’s skyline from the Heeler family’s verandah and Bluey Beach features the Heeler family on one of Queensland’s many pristine beaches.

Bluey is produced by the Emmy® award-winning Ludo Studio for ABC KIDS and is co-commissioned by ABC Children’s and BBC Studios. Both series received production support from the Australian Government through Screen Australia, and Queensland Government through Screen Queensland.
