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.’

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.

This material is intended to help celebrate her anniversary in a fun and meaningful way. The toolkit consists of several parts, centred around an exhibition. The exhibition consists of three parts – a story-based display (part 1) and an image-based display (part 2). In addition, there are options to add on a furnished part where children can read, play and do different kinds of activities (part 3). The toolkit also contains a list of children’s activities, as well as seminar suggestions. The toolkit includes something for both adults and children.

Welcome to celebrate Pippi Longstocking 75 years!
