Now in development, the 30x7’ original series follows the adventures of the joyful elephant Dollyphant and its friends Heart, Himbo, Bono and Anka. These five buddies get involved in many hilarious and absurd adventures together, while learning something new at each episode. Aimed at a target audience between 2 and 5 years old, “Dollyphant” focuses on entertaining kids while also educating them about many themes like friendship, family, sharing, kindness, respect, equality, and saving the nature.
