It is always interesting and amusing to treat an automat with the second degree.

Is it possible to forget that this handling character of the puppets is an automat? Certainly not and it is not the finality.

But why not let itself take with the play one moment?

One finds in this character distributor of leaflet an automat with advertising vocation.
