―Blippi's catchphrase

Stevin John (born: May 27, 1988 (1988-05-27) [age 34]), better known by his alias Blippi, is an American children's entertainer, educator and musician on YouTube, Hulu, and Amazon Video. He has a childlike, energetic and curious persona, and is known for his signature blue and orange outfit and his educational videos.

Content

John's content ranges from teaching children about colors, shapes, and counting, to instructing them how to make snow angels, teaching about excavators and baking bread. Songs about the video's subject matter are sometimes used in his videos (e.g. The Train Song, The Excavator Song, e.t.c). He has two channels, Blippi Toys and Blippi - Educational Videos for Kids, both of which have millions of subscribers. He also owns the channel Blippi Español, which consists of both classic and new Blippi videos that have been dubbed entirely in Spanish as a way to spread Blippi and his content to a Spanish-speaking audience.

He is one of the most popular kids channels on the platform, along with Cocomelon, Vlad and Niki and Ryan's World.

History

Following four years in the United States Airforce, Stevin John created Blippi, launching his YouTube channel on January 27th, 2014. He came upon the idea for Blippi in 2012 after spending time with his then-2-year-old nephew, who was hooked on YouTube videos featuring excavators or tractors set to background music. John decided to make his own high-quality educational kids channel."

Less than one month later, on February 18th, 2014, he uploaded his first video, "Farm Tractors." The video, however, does not feature the main character Blippi. Instead, the video's runtime is devoted to tractors in use. Within five years, the video has received more than 446,000 views.

The following week, John released his first video to feature the character. The video, "Learn to Count MONSTER TRUCKS! Numbers 1-10," received several million views in the next following years.

In Summer of 2016, Amazon, Roku and other streaming services began carrying episodes of Blippi.

Four years later, Blippi published "Videos for Toddlers with Blippi | Learn Colors and Numbers for Children." The video received more than 119 million views and, as of December 2018, remains Blippi's most popular video .

Due to the success of the aforementioned videos, Blippi would eventually garner a large following with over billions of views on YouTube, and the production staff expanding. The Blippi team would begin producing videos in Spanish, establish Blippi Toys, and begin offering DVDs, CDs and digital downloads from the Blippi website and even collaborating with other kids channels.

Controversy

Older content

John started making videos in 2013 under the persona of Steezy Grossman, a boy who was born as poop after his parents had anal sex. Under his Steezy Grossman alias, John created videos such as "Turdboy" and "Underwear Man". In a 2013 video John performed the Harlem shake on a toilet and defecated on a naked friend, which was unearthed in 2019. John said, "at the time, I thought this sort of thing was funny, but really it was stupid and tasteless, and I regret having ever done it." He would later use DMCA takedown notices to remove the video.

Blippi World Tour Tickets

John made an announcement on his website that he'll be doing a tour in North America, and he's selling tickets for it. Of course, this went viral and people started buying tickets like crazy. The tickets were very expensive-families needed to pay 250$ for just four members.

After the surge of buying, the Blippi World Tour started. Kids from all over North America watched Blippi come to them. Until, they noticed that the Bilppi in Blippi World Tour was not the real Blippi, who was Stevin John. This word spread quickly, and mothers were complaining, since the astronomical price for the tickets did not match the quality of the World Tour.

A disclaimer was later added to the Blippi website saying that Blippi would be played by a dynamic stage performer.
