Description from designer’s website:
Whizz … watch out! Here comes Young Elsie scooting along on her roller skates, skipping and yo-yoing - sometimes all at the same time! She never stops still. Young Alf calls her The Rainbow Tornado and we’re not surprised. You can tell that she also has lots of adventures with her friend Horace, The Red Nose Hobby Horse. He’s such a fun fellow with his harness and cosy scarf.
