This set contains Noggin playing Hnefetafl with Nogbad the Bad along with Thor Nogson, 5 trolls and, of course, a plate of honey sandwiches! From the book of the same name, these are unpainted castings in white metal.
Noggin the Nog
The stories were based around the central character of Noggin, the rather simple but good-natured son of Knut, King of the Nogs, and his queen Grunhilda. When King Knut dies, Noggin must find a queen to rule beside him or else forfeit the crown to his uncle, Nogbad the Bad. Noggin meets and marries Nooka of the Nooks (an Eskimo princess), and becomes the new king. Noggin and Nooka have a son, Knut, who comes to the fore in later storylines. Other regular characters include:
- Thor Nogson – Noggin’s closest friend and Captain of the Royal Guard. Nogson portrays himself as “fierce”, but is actually anything but fierce. Nevertheless, he is unfailingly loyal, and never hesitates to defend the honour of his king.
- Olaf the Lofty – An eccentric and occasionally arrogant, but well-meaning, inventor. Olaf’s inventions rarely work out exactly as he intends them to, although his most notable success is the Flying Machine.
- Graculus – A big green bird who arrives as Nooka’s messenger in the first episode. Later by chance they return to the place of his birth and meet his family, who unlike him are incapable of human speech.
- Grolliffe – A friendly ice dragon who Noggin befriends, and who helps Noggin and his friends in a later episode.
Although the individual stories vary, any trouble encountered by the heroes is usually caused by Nogbad the Bad, who never gives up trying to claim Noggin’s throne for himself. Nogbad always loses in the end, though not always through the intervention of Noggin himself.
