The unicorn of the ocean is here!

What a pesky horn! The narwhal never knows where to put it when he wants to cuddle. But then he realises that the other animals have difficulties of their own. The octopus has so many arms he almost ends up in a knot. The sea urchin doesn’t want to prick anyone, and the seashells don’t have any arms to hug anyone with in the first place. But in spite of all the obstacles, each animal has its own, affectionate way of snuggling and cuddling. And so the little narwhal also comes up with a wonderful solution.

Watch out lama, sloth and flamingo! It’s simply impossible not to love the little Narwhal! | 18 months +
