Little Known Fact #5

Katja has just reminded me of one of my favorite characters from childhood: The Little Mole. Created by Czech artist Zdenek Miler, The Little Mole was the hero of many a tale, both in book and cartoon form. When I was about 3, one of my favorite books was "How Come Little Mole Has Trousers?" or, as I knew it, "Kuinka Myyrä sai housut." Katja posted this YouTube clip of The Little Mole and the Snowman.

I loved Myyrä, my siblings loved Myyrä and it is good to notice, that my niece and nephew love him too. Ada has a little Myyrä-doll, which I get to play with, when I'm visiting the twins :)
I think we can easily convince Aino into a Myyrä-enthusiast too.

BTW, I'm making cookies with Marabou's Minttukrokantti-chocolate, I'll tell you later, if they are ok.

The Little Mole and his blue trousers is a great story. We have them at home as we loved it when we were kids and now our children love it, too. There are many stories around the Little Mole and they are available in DVD, too:))

Good to know! I didn't find them on DVD when I did a search - the only book version of the "Trousers" in English I found was one being sold from the Shakespeare & sons bookshop in the Czech Republic. I'm ordering it, for sure.

This one is the Little Mole in the city on YouTube.
Today I experienced that YouTube was down. I hope they're doing better now.
