These refreshed tales like ‘Cinderella’s other Fella’ and ‘The Elves and the Loo Maker’ and ‘Humpty Mumpty’ are read in by well-known TV personalities including Baz Ashmawy.

Tiny Toot from Denmark’s Toolbox Film 26 x 7 mins for 2-5 year olds

Tiny Toot is about 3 years old.  She lives with her cat Gato, her brother, and her mum and dad … and then there’s Pixie, her little magician elf who lives in a mouse hole in the wall.  Every morning Pixie invites Tiny Toot and Gato on a new adventure. They eagerly join him in his nut- chopper – and together they make friends with everyone they meet and learn new things about daily daytime life.

Each episode arouses the young viewers’ curiosity about the magical world that surrounds us – always in a reassuring gentle way.

The stories end with the three friends returning home safely, so the world can carry on exactly as it’s supposed to.

The series will be completed by the end of this year but has already been acquired by DR, YLE, SVT, NRK, RUV and RTE and Carlsen has already published books based upon the upcoming series.

Monster will also be highlighting newly completed series, Fia’s Fairies, from Ireland’s Little Moon, Storytime with Ms B Booksy from US-based Driver Studios, Zizi and Hannibal from South Africa’s Pixcomm, The Charlie Shepherd Show, from Brazil’s TV Pingium, Noodle and Bun from South Africa’s Polycat and Once upon my Story from Canada’s Maki Media.
