The Kolobok

Kolobok is the main character of an East Slavic national fairy tale with the same name, represented as a small yellow spherical being.

The fairy tale is prevalent in Slavic regions in a number of variations. A similar fairy tale with a pancake rolling off has also been recorded in German and Nordic regions. The plot is similar to The Gingerbread Man in English tradition.
