Congrats Pippi

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 77 languages.

Do you want to throw a Pippi party?

Celebrating Pippi? Here are some suggestions!

  • Crafts, games and quiz: available here on our website
  • The publisher Oxford University Press offer Pippi party packs
  • Ask the children to come dressed up as Pippi or her friends!
  • Face-painting with freckles
  • Cut-out cardboard figure, with a hole for the head: image available here
  • Images for decoration available here
  • Reading aloud from the books
  • Serve cream gateau or pancakes, just like Pippi!
  • Jubilee exhibition: The Astrid Lindgren Company has produced a print on demand exhibition, designed to suit many different contexts and settings. It is, for example, perfectly possible to use it as a starting point for a larger celebration that includes additional events and activities, but it also speaks for itself and as such is well suited to be used on its own. The exhibition has been created in two different versions, a large one and a small one. The sole charge involved in the exhibition is the cost of printing, which we have estimated to be approximately €3800. Please contact for further information.
