Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom is a ten minute animation series for pre-school children set in a tiny land of elves, fairies, small animals and insects. These characters are so small that to them flowers and blades of grass seem like mighty trees. Each episode combines situations that will be familiar to small children (including playing games, snowy days, holidays, birthdays, bathtime) with the magical elements that are part of everyday life for fairies and elves.
The stories revolve around the daily lives of Holly, a tiny five-year-old fairy princess and her best friend Ben, an elf of the same age. Because Holly is a young fairy she is still learning how to do magic properly and her spells often don't work out quite as planned. She also has quite a bit to learn about flying and mostly flutters close to the ground.
Ben is a young elf. Elves can't do magic and they don't have wings. But elves are very brave, can run fast and are very good at making things – especially toys. Ben is extremely proud of being elf.
