The first book in the Noddy series, Noddy Goes to Toyland, reveals the origins of the character of Noddy, and it introduces us to Toyland, as well as many of the other characters that appear in the rest of the books in the Noddy series. In Noddy Goes to Toyland, we find out that Noddy was carved by a toy maker, but he ran away when the toy maker decided to carve a lion, thus scaring Noddy. Alone and with nowhere to go, Noddy is wandering around when he encounters Big Ears. Taking pity on Noddy, and realising that Noddy is a toy, Big Ears takes him to the town of Toyland. There, the townspeople of Toyland have to decide whether to let Noddy stay in town, as he is, in fact, a toy, or whether he has to leave because he is an ornament.

In the book Noddy and his Car, the third book in the noddy series of books, we meet many of Noddy’s friends in Toyland, as he is able to his use car to operate Toyland’s only taxi service. Running the taxi service means that Noddy can make money to afford the things he needs, and also so he can enjoy himself in Toyland, buying nice things. Mr Milko the milkman suggests the taxi service to Noddy, and it is the main plot of Noddy and his Car. On his travels, he transports a pink cat to the station, Mr Tubby’s brother, Mr Teddy, as well as other. There are mishaps galore, and Noddy relies on Big Ear’s wisdom to help him through a tough time as he tries to get his new business off the ground.

Noddy also owns a house called House-for-One.

The turning point in the first book in the serialized Noddy, entitled Noddy Goes to Toyland, is the time Old Man Carver decides to create a wooden lion. Incidentally, Noddy likes people but hates lions. Coupled with his boredom at the woodcarver’s home, Noddy opts to run away and start life from scratch elsewhere.
