La Grande Famille was launched in 1998. The range grows in size each year, with new characters being added. Sylvain the rabbit, Julius the dog, Jeanne the duck and Nini the mouse are the core brothers and sisters. They are joined by Perlette the frog, Albert the sheep, and more recently Simon the racoon and Leon the hedgehog. The brothers and sisters, tinys and parents band together to form a big happy family. They delight animal loving children all over the world.
