Synopsis

Little Zdenka is having her fifth birthday. Her mother made her a cake with five candles. She then delights in examining her new toy. A small kitchen with tiny kitchenware, a small table and chairs. Zdenka's girlfriends come to visit. At first they admire the gift, but then they start to make fun of it. According to them, something is missing in Zdenka's little kitchen. The name begins with an E and ends with an S. When the girls leave, Zdenka's mother notices that Zdenka is sad. The little girl tells her she actually doesn't know what the girlfriends were talking about. But the mother knows. So, when Zdenka opens the little cupboard, she finds a miniature box of Express scouring powder. Now she knows that there is nothing missing in her little kitchen.
