We have all read the Pippi Langstumpe books - a visit to Junibacken takes you right back to your childhood. We love to take our grand daughter along and join in her delight at the offerings.

This is a great (although a bit expensive) attraction for small children and Astrid Lindgren fans. Train ride is magical. Not much else for adults though, wouldn’t recommend without kids.

Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland
extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of
nature and an abundance of museums, while being
located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city
center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take
endless walks through a beautiful park landscape
without having to leave the city, but also offers an
incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as

I don't think that it's necessary for your 3yo to know the characters. Maybe it will add more to the experience if you read her a story or show her an episode of Pipi's adventures. You can visit Pipi's house in Junibacken... More

With a young kid you might stay longer than 2 hours, especially if they make friends with other kids and want to play: there are plenty of things to do for them there. They might not want to leave! :-)
