Collection: Astrid Lindgren

DO YOU KNOW PIPPI LONGSTOCKING ?

If not, maybe it's about time you did.

She’s the strongest girl in the world. With her carrot-coloured pigtails, her striped mismatched socks, and her freckles, she’s instantly recognisable. She’s a financially independent child, a reckless but compassionate anarchist with an intolerance for bullies. She’s a feminist role model who has inspired everyone from Michelle Obama to Lady Gaga, Madonna, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Her name? Pippilotta Viktualia Rullgardina Krusmynta Efraimsdotter Långstrump. You probably know her better as Pippi Longstocking. And this year, on 21 May 2020, the most famous creation of Swedish author Astrid Lindgren will celebrate her 75th birthday. First published in 1945, the series is now among the most translated children’s books in the world, with more than 70 million copies sold in 77 languages.

Playfull Toyshop will celebrate her Birthday with 10% off ALL of Astrid Lindgren books, we stock. The offer is to the end of May or until stock lasts.

Pippi does everything that children are not meant to do. She tells outrageous lies, she refuses to accept the authority of adults, including policemen and teachers. But if she likes you, you have a loyal and trusted friend for life. She is eccentric as a matter of principle. She sleeps with her head under the covers and her feet on the pillows.

Astrid Lindgren has created a truly unique and loveable character, inspiring generations of children to want to be Pippi. More then anything Pippi makes reading a pleasure: no child will welcome the end of a book and \many will return to Pippi again and again.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND GRATTIS PÅ FÖDELSEDAGEN PIPPI!
