Details

Like other Australian literary classics that the Baby Sets have featured, Ethel Pedley’s 1899 classic Dot and the Kangaroo painted a portrait of Australia as a place of great natural beauty, unique terrain and quirky, lovable animals. Dot and the Kangaroo has since become a much loved Australian children’s story. Both the book and the 1977 feature film provide an insight into the experience of early settlers intertwined with the fantasy of the Australian bush coming alive. Pedley’s original preface implored readers to sympathise with native animals, “whose extinction, through ruthless destruction, is being surely accomplished”.

The 2013 Baby Proof Sets will be presented in a jewellery style case with an indented impression of the characters within the story.
