A couple of years ago the copyright owners of the character Tin Tin decided to grant only certain shops the right to distribute their merchandise. La Marelle was fortunate enough to be one of those stores, and is one of only six with the rights in Switzerland. That is why this place is absolutely jam-packed with Tin Tin! Every conceivable item that has room for a Tin Tin logo is present in this shop and is a must for anyone who is a collector. However, the Belgian wonderboy is not the only cartoon character available; the Asterix chess set is also there to provide some amusement, as are the toys dating back to the 1950's. It is interesting to see how much children's toys have changed over the decades. Yes, they are a lot noisier now.
