Mainzelmaennchen on tour in Scotland

When you are a frequent visitor, you may remember our Scotland trip in spring this year. When you are not – just visit the link 🙂 .

On our roadtrip we were accompanied by a small fellow called “Fritzchen”. He’s as small as 5 cm, which makes it easy to carry him around the world in a pocket. And he is part of the Mainzelmaennchen family, which is well known in Germany. Their profession is officially “commercial separator”. This basically means that they entertain people who are watching TV before a commercial, and after a commercial.

This is the typical Mainzelmaenchen introduction:

And this is how it looks like when a Mainzelmaennchen travels to Scotland:

Enjoy the second advent!

  1. Ich hatte als kleines Kind einen Plastikbecher mit den Mainzelmännchen, den ich sehr geliebt habe. Ãœberhaupt waren “Männchen” abends immer das absolute Highlight. Was für eine coole Idee! Mein Favorit ist eindeutig das Fjordbild, auf dem das Männchen seinen Rücken zeigt!

    • Danke! Das Bild mag ich auch sehr gerne – da passt die Perspektive irgendwie. Und zu den Mainzelmännchen selber muss man sonst glaube ich auch gar nicht sehr viel mehr sagen, oder? 🙂
