The Fixies follows the misadventures of Tom-Thomas and his secret friendship with Simka and Nolik, the children of the Fixie family that lives in his apartment. There’s just no end to the troubles Tom-Thomas and his Fixie friends get themselves into with all the gadgets and appliances around them! Luckily for Tom-Thomas, his Fixie friends have the smarts, the skills, and the tools to figure out a problem and solve it.
The Fixies not only tells stories about solving the problems we face in a world inundated with technology, but stories about the feelings that motivate children – feelings of worry, excitement, jealousy, surprise, fear, competition, and friendship.
We’ve all heard about gremlins. Sure, it’s a great story, but unfortunately machines don’t need any help breaking down – they do that just fine on their own! The real mystery is when machines start to conk out and then suddenly start working again! Like the light bulb that flickers... then comes on full! Or the car engine that refuses to turn over... then just revs to life! Or the broken doorbell that suddenly starts ringing again. Do you know why that happens? FIXIES!
