Congrats Pippi!

‘Now let’s celebrate’, Pippi shouted, as she got back on her feet. ‘Let’s celebrate until we raise the roof of Villa Villekulla.’

This toolkit is intended to help celebrate Pippi’s anniversary in a fun and meaningful way. It consists of several parts, centered around an exhibition. The toolkit includes something for both adults and children.

  1. An exhibition that consists of three parts:
    •   a story-based display
    •   an image-based display
    •   options to add on a furnished part where children can read, play and do different kinds of activities.
  2. A list of children’s activities.
  3. Seminar suggestions.
  4. Two social media campaigns.

For 75 years Astrid Lindgren’s fictional character Pippi Longstocking has entertained, astonished, questioned and provoked audiences all over the world. Pippi is adored by children, and people of all ages consider her a role model and a symbol for independence and anti-authoritarianism to this day. Her liberal and free-spirited character has made an impact far beyond the world of children’s books. Pippi’s character can influence gender equality education in children’s care, pre-school and school. And she also features in projects such as Save the Children’s Pippi of Today in support of girls in situations of migration and/or displacement.

Welcome to celebrate Pippi Longstocking 75 years!
