Lately Russian children can buy for themselves such a strange toy in the shops. It is a figure of a pig with a “passport”-like id, describing it (see on photo).
People investigated the manufacturer and it came out that the toys come from China and mainly for European markets, so they are not supposed to appear in Russia. The manufacturer makes different toys of animals and “populate” with them different countries. He has chosen Russia for pigs, but asked distributors not to sell the toys directly in Russia but preferred Western countries.
And the toy originates from China. Now people who have seen this ask if it was done on purpose or it’s just a pure coincidence.
