“All types of hair gets tangled and tatty and sometimes it’s really hard to brush, but there was something different about Tatty Ava, Something magical!”

The character of Tatty Ava, was created by author Layla Gibiliru in an attempt to encourage her daughter, Ava, to brush her hair. It worked really well and Tatty Ava began going on all sorts of adventures, which led Layla to release Tatty Ava for all children to enjoy.

The story of Tatty Ava supports child development in the following areas:
