The Little Round Bun, aka Kolobok (Колобок). The story of the The Little Round Bun is analogous to The Little Gingerbread Boy. In Russian, "kolo" means round and "bok" means "side". The sole purpose of Kolobok's existence is not to be eaten. After being created in the oven by the kindly old couple, Kolobok springs to life and rolls off the table and out the door. He meets several animals in the forest, including a bear, a wolf, a bunny and a fox, while always singing one simple refrain: "I got away from Grandmother, I got away from Grandfather, and I will certainly get away from you." After eluding all the animal's their clutches, in the end it is the sly fox who gets the better of Kolobok by praising his singing and pretending deafness.
Hand made and painted in Russia. 5½" down to ¾" of an inch. Nice 3-D detail including feet, ears and tail on the bear, the fox's head and the bun's feet. 1 only.
