It's a statue

It's a statue, one which Astrid herself didn't want but whatever. We don't have much else in Vimmerby so a statue was necessary, indeed. A statue is always just a statue but I suppose your child could climb on it or something and you can take selfies with

Very good

The place is beautiful and with a little store where you can buy things (t-shirts, etc) not so cheap. We went in a little train which took us near the animais. The mooses are very social and cool, and get very close. The deers are not social and stay away. A good place to visit.
