The story with as little text and as many imaginative impressions that it might be enjoyed by children from the age of 2.

The simple plot is inspired by motives from a picture book by German illustrator Fred Rodrian, and tells a story of a Fleecy Cloud Lamb who fell from the sky. A little girl takes him in and wants to help him up to the sky. They walk along to various funfair attractions hoping to help the Lamb back to his fleece cloud friends. Unfortunately, the circus cannon shot and the puppet pyramid failed, and funfair balloons didn´t help either. However, everything turns for the better after all, the Lamb is back in the sky, and it´s time for children to see and feel the performing puppets, try out miscellaneous musical instruments and enjoy interactive playroom activities, such as playing the Wheel of Fortune or setting up wooden-block puppets.
