It’s not just me that thinks this little traffic light man is cool! There are an enormous amount of Ampelmann products and stores in Berlin — of which I stocked up on The pedestrian crosswalk dude with his top hat distinguishes former east Berlin so you can always tell what part of the city you are in. I had a hard time capturing pictures of him without causing my own traffic in the crosswalk, so this is a picture I took of a postcard I bought (I told you they have tons of products!).
EDITOR’S NOTE: The ped head in this photo is reminiscent of perhaps the coolest ped heads in the world – in Taiwan. Watch this video and see for yourself!
