Welcome to the mad, mod world of the Ginghams, a trio who travels to bring long-lost misfit toys into their home. Fluff was dropped under the couch, Squibbly was abandoned in the gutter and Disco Frog was caught in a ceiling fan. But don't fret, dear pet! With a comedic, quirky and colorful mix of sound, story, video and vacuum, toys get discovered and recovered by the plaid-patterned family. Ab Fab meets Pee Wee's Playhouse meets Grey Gardens for offbeat, off-the-wall, fantastically funny Fluff: A Story of Lost Toys. (More)

Two-time GRAMMY nominee Tommy Emmanuel is one of Australia's most respected musicians. With a professional career spanning five decades, Tommy has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. His unusual talent and life are common lore in Australia: born into a musical family, Tommy got his first guitar at age 4 and was taught by his mother. He quickly learned by ear, with no formal instruction, and has never read music. By age 6 he was working as a professional musician in the family band (variously named The Emmanuel Quartet, The Midget Surfaries and The Trailblazers). By the age of 10, young Tommy had already played his way across Australia. (More)
