  • Cini is a happy dumpling shaped Buddi and is the cheerful, enthusiastic leader of the group. Like Iso’s horn or Vihi’s light, Cini also has a special skill. He is able make his thought images appear out of the top of his head via a Thought Bubble. This allows Cini to generate a lot of the primary ideas for the group during their adventures.
  • Vihi is the youngest, most sensitive, emotional and compassionate Buddi. Vihi moves around on six dainty legs, making her a highly creative dancer and an excellent swimmer. From the top of her head, Vihi shines a bright light that not only amplifies her emotions but can also be used as a handy torch. Vihi can be shy and timid, and sometimes a little fearful.
  • Puna is the most protective, responsible and cautious Buddi. Being the tallest, Puna can often spot problems ahead from his bird’s eye view. Nothing makes Puna happier than being close to Kelta, who rides on top of his shoulders, and together this endearing sibling duo often find solutions to the challenges that face the Buddis.
  • Kelta rides high on his big brother Puna’s shoulders and is a curious young Buddi with a hand that’s always reaching out for a new adventure. Kelta often tests his independence but, after a while, truly misses his big brother, and will throw his arm around loyal Puna when they are re-united.
  • Iso is the oldest, largest and speediest Buddi, as she moves around on 4 small wheels. Iso has a tendency to act cheeky and show off. Iso’s emotional reactions and ability to communicate are often expressed through the horn that stands proudly on her side.
