The tiny Tindims are like the Borrowers-on-Sea, who turn our everyday rubbish into treasure. A world of characters and adventures to inspire conservation and inventive ways to recycle.



There were three Tindims called Captain Spoons, Broom and Pinch. Captain Spoons and Broom fell off with Bottle Mountain and were stranded on an island. The Long Leg family helped them to get back by fixing their cable car that got transformed into a boat. My favourite part was when they made friends with the Long Leg family.
