It’s important to play – and it’s fun

As you surely realise by now, Astrid Lindgren’s World is a world full of theatre, song and exciting encounters with the various characters. If there was one thing Astrid Lindgren cared about, it was the right of children to be children. And one of the best ways of being a child is to be able to play freely. Therefore, the important theme of ‘play’ runs like an invisible thread through everything that happens at Astrid Lindgren’s World.

The park also has areas without any characters, such as the ‘Don’t touch the ground’ trail, where children can use their imagination and be whoever and however they like.

Why not pay a visit to Simon Small’s home to find out what it’s like to be really really tiny? Don’t forget to say “killevippen” before you enter.

But needless to say, children can play anywhere they like in the park. When there are no performances on in the settings, children are free to use them as exciting playgrounds. Who hasn’t dreamt of climbing around Matt’s Fort or jumping aboard the Hoppetossa, Captain Efraim Longstocking’s boat, or going for a slide on Karlsson’s roof?
