Little Poss

Little Poss is Epilepsy Queensland’s mascot. He is a loveable brushtail possum who lives in Ningaloo, Australia. He developed epilepsy and fell out of his tree. He has many friends, Ruby Rosella, Kerry Koala, Eddie Emu, Wally Wombat, and Gertie Goanna.

We have two books that tell children about Little Poss’s journey with his epilepsy. ‘And Down Went Poss’ and ‘Poss’s School Days’ tell a delightful story, especially designed for children to understand their own epilepsy and to learn how to be a friend to someone with epilepsy. They can be purchased by contacting us.

Little Poss would love for all children with epilepsy, as well as their brothers and sisters, to join his very own Little Poss Club.  Among other things, Little Poss Club Members receive a welcome pack, birthday cards, bi-monthly newsletters, and invitations to Little Poss's birthday party every year!

Little Poss is a very friendly character who comes along to all the special events held by Epilepsy Queensland, including Purple Day!

Little Poss loves getting mail from his friends so please send Little Poss your letter and a drawing.

If you would like your child to become a member of the Little Poss Club, please contact the services team at Epilepsy Queensland on 07 3435 5000 or email the Little Poss membership form to
