Joining the Australian Boy and the Koala Bear from Down Under are the Kangaroo Mother with her Joey and the Platypus.
The latest additions to the It's a Small World Series have been the animals which are very nicely fleshing out the countries. We've seen Africa fleshed out with the Hippo ("Jungle Blossom") released in November, 2007 and the Zebra ("Jungle Percussion") scheduled for release this month.
With this latest release, we're now seeing Australia being fleshed out. The Australian Boy and Koala Bear in Tree Accessory ("G'day Mate!") were released in July, 2006 and will now be joined by the Kangaroo with Joey ("Motherly Marsupial") and the Platypus ("Outback Oddity") in September, 2008.
Will be interesting to see if the next release(s) from this series will be either new countries added or more countries fleshed out as we've seen with Africa and Australia.
