GoRVing Canada made a great ad showing free-range kids playing outdoors, making adventures, and getting dirty.

Born in Windhoek, Namibia, in 1990 to wildlife photographers and filmmakers, Tippi Degré grew up in Southern Africa for the first ten years of her life. She has published books about her experience living close to tribespeople, specifically the San Bushmen and the Himbas, and the animals. She was named after the actress Tippi Hedren. During her childhood in Namibia, Tippi befriended wild animals, including a 28-year old elephant Abu, a leopard nicknamed J&B, crocodiles, lion cubs, giraffes, a northern greater galago, a banded mongoose, an ostrich, meerkats, a baby zebra, a cheetah, a caracal, a snake, an African grey parrot, giant bullfrogs, and chameleons.
