“Our Sandman” with the evening greeting is the oldest favourite of children’s television. He is a dream bearer and globetrotter at the same time. From the North Pole to the Black Forest, from the Orient to the Baltic Sea, the more than 50,000 television broadcasts take the Sandman almost all over the world. During his travels, the sandman can rely on a spectacular fleet of over 300 vehicles.

Together with Sandmann figures, some of Sandmann’s well-known friends such as Pittiplatsch and Fuchs & Elster, as well as fairy-tale and winter scenes, the vehicles are at the centre of the exhibition. There will be a reunion with a fire truck, bus, rocket or tractor. In addition to the popular means of transport for air, water, space and ground, lesser known “vehicles” can be discovered for the first time. The exhibition presents more than 160 figures, vehicles and other original props from six decades of Sandmann production, from the early dolls of Sandmann inventor Gerhard Behrendt to more recent figures from the 1990s. The construction of a typical puppet trick figure is also illustrative. Big and small Sandmann fans can also get creative themselves: Which vehicle would you build for the Sandmann and where would the Sandmann go?
