As you could see in "Lost and found..."
There was a x-mas present, "we are building a nuclear plant"
Sadly, Grandpa and his visit to the toy store, is only in germanhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlkVGCstm68 (after 2.22 min, you should watch the english version again.)
(I hope this little translation will help to understand it a bit.)from 1978
"Do you sell toys?"
"What kind of toy?"
"Something with ... pfffff."
The saleslady asks grandpa if his grandchild is a girl or a boy, grandpa is confused, ...
"How old is it ,... What is the name?"
"Hoppenstedt, we all are Hoppenstedt!"
"...and it is a girl?"
"Nee /No!" ("Nee" is a typical german slang, similar to your "naa".)
"It is boy!"
"Nee, nee, nee"
"What is it..."
"So exactly, - I can't say..."
"What does it wear?"
"pants, always blue pants!"
"Haven't you seen it without the pants?
"No, - what for?"
Grandpa looks to the fat lady next to him who is penetrating a stick in a piece of wood.
"What kind of store is this here?"
"Has it a Zipfelchen, (Zipfel= tip, point, end,...)
"ZIPFELCHEN??? - my grand child has everything it needs, healthy parents, a decent respectable home and Zucht und Ordnung
The saleslady shows grandpa a new game for both, boys and girls, the buiding kit for a nuclear plant.
She explains it: "it is really a thing for the whole family, and if you do a mistake, it makes puff, a small explosion, not a big one it is still a toy, and the houses, trees and animals fell down, great fun and a big hallo."
Ahm, the toys in the store, did you noticed?
And now you can have also a nuclear plant at home, - you need a knife or a scissor, paper, glue, and patience.http://www.areva-np.com/common/liblocal ... -lores.pdfhttp://www.areva-np.com/common/liblocal ... book_a.pdf
