Soon, two children, Tommy and Annika, venture into the house only to meet up with Pippi. The three soon become friends and get into various adventures together, including cleaning the floor with scrubbing shoes, dodging the “splunks”, going down a river in barrels, and helping Pippi with the problem of having to go to a children’s home.
