Who is Blippi?

Blippi is a channel on YouTube Stevin John started in 2014 to provide entertainment for children aged 2 to 7 years old.

The show has a childish character with a curious and energetic personality, very much like his audience.

Blippi wears an orange and blue beanie, an orange sling, a blue shirt, and an orange bow tie.

Since the show started, the channel has amassed over 14 million subscribers and 10 billion views.

Why did the Blippi actor change?

In 2021, fans noticed that Stevin wasn’t playing Blippi, instead another actor had taken on the role.

While you have to look REALLY carefully to tell the difference, the lovable character is currently being played by actor Clayton Grimm.

Clayton is all too familiar to fans, as he played Blippi as the YouTube show toured the world.

This has seen him nicknamed “Blippi from the live show”.

The reason why Stevin gave up the role was because he was having a child of his own with fiancee Alyssa Ingham.

He made the announcement on Instagram in October 2021, with a photo of him kissing his fiancee, who was holding a strip of ultrasound photos.

The father-to-be wrote next to the words: “Parenting time is coming in 2022.”
