Their names? Jip and Janneke. Two main characters from a children's book, written by Annie M. G. Schmidt. My mother read the books to me when I was a toddler. I read the books to our own three children as they do for their children. The story's are good, even after all those years. The first one appeared in 1953 and I'm convinced that everyone in the Netherlands knows Jip en Janneke. Everyone. Fiep Westendorp illustrated the books and she's as important as the author.
Of course nowadays there's a lot of merchandise. But I never saw them on a wall!
And then there was this... on the same wall!
