Congrats Pippi

Lifting horses and breaking rules since 1945

Congratulations Pippi!

‘Time for a celebration!’ shouted Pippi, when she was back on her feet again. ‘We’ll celebrate until Villa Villekulla’s roof flies off!’

In 2020, it was 75 years since the first book about Pippi Longstocking was published. The books have since been published all over the world, in 78 languages.

Pippi of Today

Pippi of Today

Pippi of Today is an initiative from The Astrid Lindgren Company in partnership with Save the Children supporting girls that are on the move. Pippi Longstocking was created by Astrid Lindgren, 75 years ago. The Second World War was ending, and millions of girls were on the move. Today many more girls are forced to leave their homes. They need to gather all their strength, courage and hope to tackle challenges and find their way to a brighter future. Support girls on the move - the Pippis of today!

Oh yes, time flies and before you know it you’re old, said Pippi. Come autumn I’ll be ten, and I suppose I’ll be past my prime then.
