MEET A NEW FRIEND
Elias - den lille redningsskøyta is a Norwegian book character that captured our hearts the moment we met him. Since we live in the same region as Elias and his friends, the visuals and stories echo our surroundings (boats, snow capped mountains and cheeky sea gulls), which of course add to its appeal. As a result we've accumulated quite the collection of toys, plates, puzzles, lunchbox etc.
Elias was 3D-animated into a 39-episode TV series in 2005-2007. Two films have also been released (watch trailer 1 or trailer 2), along with soundtracks that became instant favourites with our son. If you're looking for a Norway-related gift for a child, anything with Elias is what you are looking for. Merchandise is available in most DVD and toy stores in Norway and Sweden.
