The Bobbekins

Toy City.

It is easy to understand why the Bobbekins love Toy City.

It was discovered by Clive and Sue’s father, Bobby Bobbekin, who is a famous explorer. You see; Bobbekins are a magical race – a little like elves.

They travel from planet to planet, helping others.

One day Bobby Bobbekin found this amazing world and he named it ‘Toy City’. He had never seen anything like it, ever.

Right from the very first time he saw it, it was like a dream come true.

This city had something that the Bobbekins had been wishing for, for a long, long time; somewhere that they could call their home.

The City was also magically alive and therefore forever changing.
