From her hideaway in a museum basement comes Ivy, a cleaning lady with a difference.
Her humble set of wheels may look like a cleaning cart, but just wait and see where – and when! – that time-travelling trolley is about to take you. Join our heroine of hygiene as she takes you on a whirlwind trip through history.
From a clash with Cleopatra to schmoozing with Shakespeare, and even a detour to the moon – our quirky queen of clean lets nothing distract her from her mission to save the dinosaurs from certain extinction.
With a cinematic score from Gareth Farr, IVY will warm the hearts and spark the imaginations of children of all ages.
