What is the curious world
of Walking Walnut?
Walking Walnut lives on an island called Announ (pronounced: Unknown), located somewhere in the Great Ocean. There are some rumors that the coordinates are the following; 60.408243, 25.007425 - but who knows about that. Walking Walnut sleeps at palm tree apartment, made of a giant coconut. He shares his home with Hedgehog, Hedgehog's second cousin Sea Urchin, Hippo, and Oh-Bob (not Iger) the Sloth.
Walnut loves two things besides his friends; Mango smoothie and Curvy Peanut. The love of mango contains one big challenge for Walnut: the only mango tree on the Announ island stands in the East part of the island, called DARKWOOD. The Eastern part of the island is controlled by an evil King, the King of the yellow ants, who protects the mango tree.
The luxury is a “must” if you live on a private island; The friends have a swimming pool next to their apartment! But the swimming pool is allowed to use - or would be wise to use in the afternoon because electric eels live in the swimming pool, and they are sleeping in the afternoon. The electric eels produce electricity for Walnut’s house so he can watch TV and use a blender.

The first touch with Walking Walnut's stories happened in December 2013 when Walnut’s creator Kalle Kujala started to narrate entirely improvised bedtime stories to his firstborn daughter, Amanda, because Kalle couldn't read the same Walt Disney books, the same Cinderella bedtime stories evening after evening. So, together with his daughter, they started creating their own stories - and Walking Walnut was born. Today, three children later, Kalle still tells his children improvised and educational bedtime stories.
Since 2013 Kalle Kujala has narrated hundreds of stories of Walking Walnut which is the foundation
for today's vision and goal of Walking Walnut animation.
“Walking Walnut has been created from those stories of Walking Walnut. When I was like two years old, about seven years ago, my dad began to tell Walking Walnut stories in the evening - before I went to sleep. Then my little brother Noel came along to listen to those stories.”
– Amanda Kujala, 9y.
