2016 was the 100th anniversary of May Gibb's Gumnut Babies and 2018 was the 100th anniversary of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. May Gibb's childhood years in Western Australia are widely credited as giving her inspiration to later create her famous stories and characters.

May Gibb’s classic characters and artworks are re-worked in original tale that ingrates English and Science outcomes. Students are immersed in the story and natural environment through role-play, sensory activities and craft.
