A small story from the section "What is not so everything is":
Felix is a Zirndorf Playmobil figures, derived from the Frankish Playmobil headquarters Zirndorf and is by birth an incessant, cheerful type.
For sworn fans of Playmobil figures ("Klickys") the little man Zirndorf is already large cult - as the main character in a collaborative writing fun project to Klickywelt.de that one of the main Internet forums for Playmobil fans in Germany.

But the Lord Beck, who knew what happened to the children in mind. " With what is happening in the minds of adults, but also Mr. Beck has probably not expected.
