These were my favorite toys when I was about three years old: my beloved Steiff-Teddybär and a guy called 'Lasse', which is a wooden soldier, who protected the Danish Queen. I'm not Danish, though, but in my childhood, we spent almost every holidays in Denmark. The teddybar is about fifty years old now, Lasse is quite new, because my mother once decided to throw away the original one, when I was a student and away from home. When I found out about that, I was very sad somehow, and my mother tried to find a new one, every year she went to Denmark. Finally she got one, and now both are sitting in my sleepingroom.
