What is Greektoys
Greektoys is a 3d animation series for children created by Sofia Pavlaki (Producer) and Luis Santos (Director).
Three toys from Ancient Greece are the main characters of the series. Valios is a little horse-toy made of clay, Lilly is a rattle and Filon is a baby’s milk bottle in a pig shape. Our little friends live adventures and travel in other countries where they meet toys of other civilizations.
Greektoys aims to teach children in an amusing way the cultural heritage of Greece and other countries.
