Geocache Description:

This little story starts with an unhappy little boy. Your mission is to help him find his family and bring them home. You find him alone at the given coordinates in "Bollhustäppan" - the garden between "Bollhuset"/"The Finnish Church" and Trädgårdsgatan (close to Köpmangatan) in the beautiful Old Towm.

Step 1: Find him, console him!
Your first action is to console him. Please give the poor little Iron Boy some gift. People from all over the world come to pay him a visit and they leave him coins, toys, clothes etc in exchange for luck. He, perhaps the smallest statue in the world, just a palm high, sits quiet in his garden. Many people also rub his head for luck or wisdom. That's the reason of his shiny head! To complete the first step, please take and publish a photo of the Iron Boy with your gift.

Step 2: Find his Family!
The Iron family in despair is situated 340 meters from the Iron boy, in an angle of 221,7 degrees. Just like the Iron Boy, this is a rather unique statue, because it is movable! Please do some tranfers. Photos are ok, but not a condition for permission logging the box. Now the Iron Family is reunited - but unfortunately still far from home.

Step 3: Bring them home (figuratively speaking)
They live in a Market, a Square (in Swedish: "Torg") in the section of the city where you are, "Gamla stan" - you do not have to change district. The Market has got its name from the Familys name - the metal (in Swedish "Järn"). To get the place in the Square, where they live, please read the signs at the statue in step 2 (The Family) and translate the letters below:


You find their home in the square/market at:
E4A7 "C""O"B1E2B2E6
G3,C4 E8 A10D1

Please do not remove the stamp from the box! It belongs to The Iron Family!
