Before my daughter was old enough, I saw a puberty education video from Norway or Finland National Health Services ? It was an educational cartoon, I think for schools , with funny/goofy/70's science'ish graphics (mostly black background) of a boy and a girl separately in a lab and test tubes and the voice over of a "scientist" going over the stages with a dry delivery of the whole process of the changes to expect - maybe it was 25 minutes . I admired the mix of information and humor; would like to find it as it seemed a solid basis for starting a conversation .

Uh, I'm, uh, gonna go out on a limb here and suggest maybe you find something else to introduce puberty to your daughter? Because holy shit that was horrifying.

Gonna go bleach my eyeballs now

I think that of all the nationalities which are likely to make videos suitable for "a solid basis for starting a conversation" - those from Norway are probably for those at the absolute least squeamish end of the scale. Here is another example (extremely NSFW).

Yeah it is strange for another reason .

It seems these videos are from the same source - but the first one seems clipped/fast in a way that makes it scary and the second is kind of what I remembered/liked but not so sparse and artistic - it was something in between.

But yeah moving on . . .

When you said it was of Norwegian origin it made me think immediately of this terrific informational video that my sister/b-i-l shared with their daughter.

If the other animated one is a little too freaky, try this one instead?
