That is what you get when you buy a Kellner Steckfiguren plug-in figure from 2 Foot 9, a home based company in New Zealand. The original designs date back to the late 1920's. Kellner plug-in figures are handmade in Germany from locally grown solid wood and hand painted using harmless, water based paints. The patented connectors, the “Jummis”, are made from food grade rubber. Instructions have deliberately been left out - these toys are designed to encourage creativity and put the child in charge.
