Toby, a boy from the local town, and Flora, a free-spirited, wild child of the forest, form an unusual friendship built on their love of nature.
Together with friends from the forest and around the world, Toby and Flora jump into nature’s joys and mysteries every day, showing us that when we take care of our world and each other, they take care of us.
Spirited, independent and free, Flora is Mother Nature’s
daughter and a wild child of the forest.
Flora can always be found in the forest where she lives among her friends – the animals and birds who live there too. Perfectly free of material trappings, she has no other home to speak of – but she can always find comfort in her environment. She is endlessly fascinated by Toby’s real-world insights and ideas – even if she does interpret them in her own wild way.
While Flora is the star of the show, Toby is our hero, a regular kid who lives in an ordinary house in town. Always seeking to share any exciting new discovery, Toby is a good-natured, big-hearted kid with an irresistible laugh.
Toby’s dream is to make a home in the treetops to study the whole natural world and one day, see everything that planet Earth has to offer. But for now, he’s discovering there is a whole world of things to wonder at right in his own back yard. Every day, he just has to commune with nature for a moment and he can slip off into Flora’s world...a world of endless discovery.
Every episode starts in the real world with Toby – often just in his own garden. After a natural encounter in the real world, Toby finds Flora. Whether he's staring at dewdrops shining on a cobweb or the silver flash of a fish in the stream, when he loses himself in nature… that’s when Flora appears - and voila, he is in her world!
Flora might already be in the middle of something – following a line of ants, making a home for a hedgehog or just holding a handful of worms (yum!) At other times, Toby shows up with something new – an object, an item of clothing or even a book (a bird spotting guide, a tale of swashbuckling adventure, a bedtime story…). The two friends always have very different takes on what to do with their latest discoveries - learning and laughing along the way.
Creator JO ROSE'S remarkable and sumptuous designs are at the heart of the show. Writer DAVEY MOORE (The Tiny Chef, Bubble Guppies, Thomas & Friends, Rastamouse, Tree Fu Tom, Paddington, Puffin Rock, Octonauts etc.) brings his signature humour, sensitivity and understanding of a kids universe; and environmental icon CHRIS PACKHAM will inspire (and fact check!) our magical natural world.
