The Piplings, as they are collectively known, are joined by real children to partake in yogo, which can only be described as a child version of yoga.  Each episode tenderly tackles a social or emotional issue, such as sharing, and it is only when the problem is resolved and the Piplings achieve true happiness that they float and cheer Buloo!

Waybuloo has been bought to the screens by Kent based RDF production company ‘The Foundation’, which has previously been responsible for Dani’s House, Scorpion Island and Big Barn Farm. Alas, due to the BBC’s strict nations quota, the programme itself was actually filmed in a giant warehouse in Scotland.

Waybuloo is shown on CBeebies at regular intervals.
