    A girl with a pet rabbit and ferret, baby hippo at a zoo and man makes mandolin from matches.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'PEEPS THROUGH THE WINDOW OF THE WORLD'.

    Various locations of events.

    At an unidentified location we see a little girl with curly hair taking a rabbit and a ferret out of a top hat. The two animals feed from a saucer of milk together, then sit on a bed while the girl says her prayers. Shot of the girl in bed asleep with the rabbit and ferret.

    At the Bronx Zoo in New York, United States of America, we see a tiny baby hippo being fed with a bottle by its trainer. The mother hippopotamus is seen in the cage next door, yawning. The baby walks over to be as near as possible to his mother and nestles down in some straw - very sweet, but it's a shame they can't be together.

    In Czechoslovakia (?) we see a man called Stanlislas Wojekowski making a mandolin out of 39,756 matches - amazing! He then gives us a little tune on the instrument.
