FLUFF – A Story of Lost Toys is a simple, joyful and humorous tale told with a twist.
The Gingham family are very concerned for all the lost and discarded hand-made toys in the world and travel the world to find them. They bring them to their colourful home of odd shaped boxes and welcome them to the family. Each toy is introduced one-by-one, and after seeing a short film of how they came to be lost, they are given a vocal sound, a movement, a piece of music, a night-light……and a nice comfy bed.
It has been acclaimed for its originality, warmth, clever use of comedy and extraordinary combination of song, movement, new technology and audience participation.
