Gadgets

These are a few of the gadgets the Dutch supermarkets gave away for the footbal championship. In 20 years time I hope to show this picture again to our kids (or maybe our grandchildren) and have a good laugh about their collection fever.
Enkele WK gadgets die je de afgelopen weken bij de supermarkten kreeg. Ik denk dat we hierover, over 20 jaar bij de volgende Oranje WK finale, nog wel eens hard kunnen lachen.

my comment concern the only part of it that is not drawn : the 3 furr creatures! i loved it so much!
is it those ones with a nylon string to wrap around fingers and it give the sensation the creature is alive and run around the fingers?

Thanks pascal, they are called beesies (petites animaux) and are 15cm long and you can wind them around the finger, there is some wire inside it. I saw what you refer to in Spain somewhere, and it looks the about same. The supermarket "albert heijn" produced 31 million of these beesies, for the Dutch market alone. Kids went crazy about them.
If you send me your adress, I will send one to you.
