The television series "Parpar Nehmad" (Lovely Butterfly) is based on the child's immediate environment.

Each episode consists of several items dealing with one main theme, such as: the seasons, flora, fauna, Israeli holidays, the environment and the community.

The series was designed for young children, in their early years of development, in order to promote creative imagination, positive relationships, as well as language development.

Israel Educational Television began producing the series in 1982. The actors represent the world of adults in the series. The puppets represent the world of children.

The five puppets in the series are:

The series includes original songs and music, original and classical stories from the best of Hebrew, foreign and folklore literature. The series has won several international prizes.

The first program was aired in January 1982. Production and broadcasting continue to this day.

The three stamps depict the puppets (in animal form) which represent the young children, the target audience of the series. The pictures were taken from various filmed programs:

On the right: Pingi the penguin with Batz the tortoise, in the center - Shabi the snail with Nooly the chick and on the left - Ouza the goose.

The puppets were designed and built by the artist Judith Grinspan.

All the pictures on the tabs were taken from the animated opening of the series, drawn by graphic artist Tuvia Kurtz and produced by Shoshana Zahor.
