It's really cute, which is enough to include it into your itinerary ;) If you see the cartoon about it, you'll appreciated it even more ;)

I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this site, but as a stop along the way, it was a nice treat. Of course, it helps if you actually know what the cartoon was about. I imagine I would have been more excited if this was one of my favorite cartoon characters (George Jetson?).

Of all the things that the great city of Kiev has to offer, I would not waste my time on seeing this monument. It is very small and located in an unusual place. We passed by going to lunch and were glad we had not traveled that way just to see the monument.

One of many street sculptures often created in place from trees that have met their demise. This is one of the cutest - it's across the street from a monument to the guardians of Ukraine's borders that features a mounted Cossack. (the present border police HQ is also across the way)

Hedgehog is the eponymous character in a truly brilliant animation short from 1975 called 'The Hedgehog in the Fog' by Yuri Norstein. Hedgehog is about 200 meters from a main tourist attraction called Golden Gates which you will find on any tourist map, just walk down the street Zolotovoritska which is perpendicular from the Golden Gate monument, he is sitting in a little park there.
