Nikita Mikhalkov introduced stars and their children with uncle Stepa — the famous literary character invented by his father, poet Sergei Mikhalkov. It happened at the opening of the exhibition “Uncle Stepa –
80” that GUM together with the Russian Fund of culture was timed to the anniversary of the publication of the first story of the beloved children’s hero of several generations in our country.

“Despite the fact that uncle Steve had turned 80, he is forever
will remain young, because he is constantly around kids. — smiled at Nikita Mikhalkov Uncle Stepa was, of course, my favorite character. All his adventures happen in my
eyes: he lived with me, existed in my life organically, was a member
family. I love and appreciate, because the prototype of Uncle Stepa himself was Sergei Mikhalkov.
Father was very tall. As a child, his dolgovato called smile
peers, he even dreamed of being below, so as not to stand out. Only when he
rose decided that this is nothing bad, and have invented such a character,
who became a hero thanks to his height”.

A good policeman is a giant cut out of cardboard, met the guests in the street. And the store itself turned into the street, along
you grew up in a home installation, tin roofs, beautiful arches and
flower pots in the open Windows, and which marched, the police in the form of guards for 20 years and was on duty the pioneers, which invited children to snack try yogurt, iced cheese and a casserole.

Kids also considered porcelain figures, figurines, toys featuring characters
favorite children’s books. And then went to the fountain. This area of the Gum was transformed into a cozy
the living room, where the actors along with the kids read aloud favorite passages
of “Uncle Stepa”. Literary hostess of the evening was Arina Sharapova. “Uncle Styopa is a phenomenon: of the past 80 years, and continue to love
to read. The exhibition, which is presented on the third line – absolutely
modern, paricna. In addition, Mr. Rogers was a master of all trades, and
this is fully consistent with the modern trend in parenting: how to
many skills at an early age..”

Alisa Grebenshchikova, after reading a few pages from the poem, said, “As the film can’t win theater, and gadgets
can beat Uncle Stepa! Now
of course, “simple” human entertainment compete for the attention of children. I
it seems that in my life Uncle Steve was always there, and now… as to the venue of this exhibition, a good exhibition always deserve the widest
audience, and the Gum every day is a huge number of visitors. In
first and foremost, people come here not for shopping, they go to the Palace, in a beautiful
a place to walk and relax, admire the fountain and the historic storefronts”

And Love Tolkalina, who came to the celebration with the godmother’s daughter, Alicia, added: “People need a hero who will release the pigeons during
fire and rescue lingerie old woman on the ice. Therefore, so far, this work brings together
all, without exception.The fact that Uncle Steve really comes to the rescue, I
checked on their own experience. I once witnessed the accident, which
were mother and daughter. The mother was taken to the hospital, and I needed to be entertained somehow
the girl, while we waited for her relatives. She was sitting in my car, in the blood –
and she was only 4 years old, and in order to distract her, I told her: “you Know that
a poem? “In the house 8/1…””. She says: “I Know!” And so, while it is not
arrived, we sat and choir read this poem. So Uncle Steve came to help.”

Dmitry Maryanov remembered my story about this book: “as soon As we cocoi Mail was invited to participate in the festival, Misrata got a book about Uncle Stepa – we have the edition with autograph
Nikita Mikhalkov. And very quickly learned their passages. When we
came with me, of course, brought back memories of childhood: the yogurt in
glasses, cookies, cones with soda… I am Sure that Uncle Stepan it is necessary to make our
own brand of superhero and shoot a film about him. Is Spider-Man, Batman,
only our Russian: he always comes to the rescue”.

But Sergei Filin with sons Sasha and Sergei,
prepared costumed musical number. “This room is about Uncle Stepa boys already played on the red square in
The day of the city, then I helped played a role of Uncle Stepan. Think made
with dignity,” smiled the dancer.

The most ambitious part of the festival was the international exhibition of children’s drawings “I am a pencil and paper took…” based on the works of Sergei Mikhalkov. Works for this exhibition were selected by an international jury, headed “dad Misha”, national
artist of Russia, children’s book Illustrator Victor Chizhikova. The project was highly appreciated
UNESCO, which organized an exhibition of works of winners of the contest in Paris in the summer
2013. And three years later works he returned to Russia in GUM on
Red square, where they will see hundreds of thousands of visitors.

“Sergey Mikhalkov has lived a long good life and was able to talk to
children. Uncle Steve is a true legend, and therefore Children’s shop in GUM we did
specifically for him: four years ago when Children’s shop in GUM was opened, it was Uncle Steve met
guests”, — said at the end of the festival Mikhail Kusnirovich.
