The owner of a replica Bluey house – complete with a canary yellow exterior and rainbow-colored games room – has been banned from promoting the likeness by the BBC, distributors of the famous Australian cartoon.
Emma Hoskin is the proud owner of ‘Bluey’s Heeler House’ in Paddington, Brisbane, which was transformed with the help of Airbnb for a lucky family to stay there for a weekend in February.
But after spending a month on promotional material – and several news outlets picked up the story – Ms Hoskin was told she could no longer connect her home to Bluey now that she wanted to sell it.

But after spending a month on promotional material – and several news outlets picking up the story – Ms Hoskin was told she could no longer connect her home to Bluey now that she wanted to sell it.
According to Mail MailSales agent Chris Gower received a call from the British Broadcasting Corporation last week asking him to remove a social media post that linked Ms Hoskin’s home to Bluey.
But Mr Gower is not sure that will make a difference now that a quick search of the house online already turns up hundreds of documents linking the two, thanks to the Airbnb competition.
Thousands of Australian families have walked past the home in recent weeks, with Ms Hoskin being trained to deploy security guards and traffic controllers to keep the peace.

The plan was still to tear down the yellow facade and restore it to its previous design before selling the hugely popular house, with neighbors hoping Ms Hoskin donated the furniture inside to flood victims.
But even after demolishing the ‘Bluey’ aspects of the property, the BBC is still asking Ms Hoskin to avoid bringing up her past life as the actual home of the blue-heeled puppies.
The popular children’s cartoon Bluey has been screened in over 60 countries.

Airbnb Australia and New Zealand manager Susan Wheedon said at the time the house was a perfect addition for families.
“Like many parents with young children, I have been captivated by the adventures of Bluey and her family, which bring so much joy and quintessential Australian humor to audiences around the world,” Ms Wheedon said.
“We are thrilled to add Bluey, Bingo, Chilli and Bandit to our growing community of Airbnb hosts.
“And while we have some amazing homes on Airbnb, there’s nothing quite like waking up in the Heeler home and living and breathing in the magical world of Bluey for a wonderful weekend.”
An Airbnb spokesperson said this week that all materials inside the home – including plants, accessories and toys – will be repatriated.
“Airbnb has also donated a number of items to Children’s Hospital Queensland for patients to enjoy,” they said.
