For those of you who are not familiar with Madurodam, it is a very popular tourist attraction located in Scheveningen, the Hague. It opened only a couple of months after Efteling in 1952, and is home to miniature versions of famous Dutch buildings and locations. Of course, such a project would not be complete without a representation of Efteling, and since 2002, Langnek and Holle Bolle Gijs have been represented at Madurodam, with Langnek standing at 30cm tall.
He had been waiting a good while to get back in shape, and now he is back to how he should be. We recently shared a photo of him on his new rock, with a fresh coat of paint, looking fabulous! Eftelist has, however, posted a couple of videos of him on the move, with his new eyes moving about like they used to 🙂
We’re not sure if it’s just us, but did is neck always go half way down and then back up?
Either way, he looks a whole lot better.
According to Eftelist.nl, Mr. Longneck is currently under a tarpaulin, so hopefully his static eyes are getting fixed at long last! While we’re on the subject of Mr. Longneck, we wanted to share this video of him at Mini Efteling. We love Mini Efteling, and they did a great job at recreating Longneck (including his moving eyes!)
