Nine easy craft ideas
We’ve transformed Bunnings Warehouse Glenfield into a real life ‘Hammerbarn’ store, where some lucky fans can book to meet Bluey and Bingo – for real life!
A note on Gnomes:
We knew a husband for $19 was a great deal but demand for new husbands has exceeded our wildest expectations!
If you miss out this time, we are working closely with our husband supplier to get more produced and in-store later this year.
There are still heaps of ways you can get involved with the Hammerbarn fun in all stores this month.
Thank you to everyone who has already joined in on the fun and we can’t wait to see you in store again soon. Select your local store below to see what’s on!
What is Hammerbarn?
Bluey is a much-loved Australian kids’ television show. The episode in which the Heeler family visit their local hardware store, ‘Hammerbarn’, was inspired by a classic Aussie weekend tradition; a family outing to Bunnings Warehouse.
With free Bluey-themed Kids D.I.Y. Workshops running every weekend, and a range of exclusive merchandise available to buy in store, we hope you’ll enjoy experiencing Hammerbarn “For Real Life!” at Bunnings Warehouse.
Where can I visit a flagship store with Hammerbarn branding?
To celebrate our collaboration with Bluey, we have transformed seven Bunnings sites into Hammerbarn across Australia and New Zealand. You can head to any of the following stores to get a glimpse of Hammerbarn, For Real Life.

How can I shop the Bluey Hammerbarn range?
Hammerbarn range includes garden gnomes, craft kits, pet toys and limited-edition Hammerbarn branded merchandise, arriving throughout February. Products are available in stores nationally* for a limited time only and while stock lasts
*Note pet toys are not available in WA due to trading restrictions.
Will there be more Bluey Gnomes for sale?
Our Bluey product range has been extremely popular with customers, especially the gnomes, and far exceeded our expectations.
If you have missed out this time, we are working closely with our husband supplier to get more produced and in-store later this year. Limited quantities of the Hammerbarn bucket hats, bag tags and tote bags are still arriving in some stores.
There are also heaps of other ways to get involved in the Hammerbarn fun this month including free Bluey-themed kids D.I.Y. workshops, scavenger hunts, face painting, colouring walls and so much more.
Why are there purchase limits on the Bluey and Hammerbarn merchandise range?
We appreciate that there may be significant demand for the Bluey merchandise range, so we want to ensure that access to these products is as fair as possible to our customers.
Purchase limits will apply to the character garden gnomes, with a limit of two per customer per transaction. There are no other purchase limits on any other products in the Bluey Hammerbarn range.
Why can't I book in for a Bluey and Bingo meet and greet at my local store?
Bluey and Bingo unfortunately can’t be everywhere at once! They are so excited to be able to come to our official Hammerbarn stores for character meet and greets. If you can’t make it, you can still get involved in Bluey-themed fun at your local store.
I forgot to book in for the Bluey and Bingo meet and greet can I just turn up on the day?
Meet and greets with Bluey and Bingo will be by booking only.
A Bluey photo wall will be available at Hammerbarn locations for those who miss out on a meet and greet booking but would still like to take a fun family photo.
Please note bookings for workshops and meet and greets are essential and can be made online here:
