In “The Royal Family Picnic,” Ben comes to the rescue once again when he accompanies Holly and her family during their picnic feast. The day is disrupted when the fairies are left hungry and sad after Nanny Plum accidentally gets rid of all the magical fairy food. Luckily, Ben’s mom packed him with enough Elf food to last a lifetime, and he offers to share his tasty treats. Though they are a bit skeptical at first, they learn that Elf food is just as tasty as their magical food.
If one thing is for sure, Nanny Plum and the Wise Old Elf will never agree on anything— especially the use of magic—making for lots of silly bickering and hilariously chaotic events. When the gang journeys to outer space in “Picnic On The Moon,” things go awry when Nanny Plum accidentally makes a magical jelly that overflows and floods the planet, and adding insult to injury, their engine soon after runs out of fuel. Lucky for them, aliens love jelly and clear the mess in no time, and The Wise Old Elf comes up with a clever plan that fixes their rocket and gets them home.
As kids watch Ben and Holly’s antics unfold during the first season, they will laugh along and learn important lessons about teamwork and what makes each individual so special.
