Was out walking and turned a corner and here he was. Surprise about 8pm there was no tourists taking photos. Rub his nose or buttons for luck, don't believe but why not.

If you skip it, you will not miss a thing. Too many tourists around it, taking photos. Rub his nose, make a wish... if you believe in the stories. :)

This amusing little statue was opposite our hotel so we passed it every day without knowing its origin. Other reviews will tell you more. Had we have known we would have rubbed his nose!

We came around the corner and there he was. Other people here talk about the history and stuff, so go read those if you're curious. Fun little statue though when you randomly encounter it.

Difficult name for foreigners, means Happy Chimney Sweeper in English. Located near Old Town in Karjavarava Square and since 2010 it's been one of the most funniest statues in Tallinn. It should bring you luck, if you rub one it's buttons(it's already different colour!)
