Tommy is a cuddly toy dragon in the home of a family of pandas. He comes alive and uses his sea horse bubble gun to take the brother and sister panda cubs on magical adventures in fantastical lands where they meet extraordinary characters and discover ways to overcome their fears and learn positive values. At the heart of each episode there is an everyday situation, familiar to any young viewer. Problems are overcome in a playful way and messages are reinforced with a simple song or poem.
