The series deals with a wide range of issues, and each episode has a unique approach to the specific issue. Alfie can build a new world in his own living room or make a birthday surprise for his dad. He can be an inventor, a king with magical powers, or a caring friend in a difficult situation in school. He can babysit or learn about real war, he can explore the wonders of the universe or have a quarrel with his dad. The stories about Alfie show both difficult and complex situations that children can learn from in an entertaining way.
