The Arts Centre Gold Coast presents FLUFF: A Story of Lost Toys
The Gingham family is very concerned for all of the lost and discarded toys in the world.
They travel all around to retrieve them and bring them to their colourful home of odd shaped boxes where they welcome them to the family. Each toy is introduced one-by-one and, after seeing a slide show of how they came to be lost, is given a vocal sound, a movement, a piece of music, a nightlight and a nice comfy bed.
Fluff: A Story of Lost Toys is a simple, joyful and humorous tale told with a twist.
It has been acclaimed for its originality, warmth, clever use of comedy and extraordinary combination of song, movement, sampling, projection and audience participation.
Fluff: A Story of Lost Toys has been loved by children 3-12 years from Brisbane to Broadway in New York.
