Where will my feet take me today?
As seen on ABC TV. Each 11 minute episode sees Franny off on a different adventure. She puts on the fisherman's boots and lands on a trawler in the middle of the Atlantic. She slips on a pair of hiking boots and is off on an African adventure.
Franny's adventures go well beyond the day-to-day world of school and home life. Franny's Feet lets children explore the bigger world and shows them that you are never too small or too young to be a big help.
My name is Franny and I'm five and a half years old. Every afternoon my Grandpa looks after me in his shoe repair shop. I always try the shoes on before I put them in the fix-it box. They take me on amazing adventures where I meet new friends and discover new places. Fantastic!
