Little Elias lives in a unique world of interesting animated characters. The little rescue boat starts his career in the charming coastal village of Cozy Cove. Among the many colorful characters he encounters are the rough and tough deep sea fishing boat Trawler, who only cares about making money.

This animated series is fantastic. My 2 year old absolutely loves it. It is like an aquatic version of Thomas the Tank Engine, except with talking and singing boats.

The characters are all very engaging, the plot lines interesting and the visual effects are just great. It is available in several languages, but unfortunately none of them are English. Although this doesn't diminish my young child's enthusiasm for Elias and his friends, it does make my life difficult when he asks me what they are saying! I strongly recommend the series, and hope its producers recognise its international appeal soon and make a version available in English!
