Our Electric Fence Max
Our little electric fence man has adorned our online shop for several years. He's changed over time – he's got more facial expressions or had a change of clothes until arriving in his current form. Here you can see examples of our little electric fence man over time from when he first appeared until his current guise.
As our little man became ever more present on our homepage, at the end of 2014 we decided that this symbol of our shop needed some personality. At the beginning of 2015 we initiated a survey on our Twitter and Facebook accounts. Week after week for half a year you voted and won many products from our shop. The survey was very popular (over 2,500 people voted) which pleased us greatly, and we would like to thank everyone again for taking part.
The survey revealed some close decisions and a few very clear preferences, which you can read about here.
