For years, toys Peter – better known as Peter Hirnschall – has been running his shop at Währinger Straße 131 and keeping kids young and old happy. Now the Christmas work comes again, and then Peter’s toy is going to retire. The search for a successor continues.
Vienna/Wring. When the leaves burn under the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve, and little children’s eyes suddenly get too big, the Christ Child is often responsible for it: playing Peter. Peter Hirnschall runs his own toy store at Währinger Straße 131. To this day, in addition to real wooden toys, you can still get all kinds of colorful, exciting and sparkling toys.
Between Barbie dolls and remote-controlled cars, Brain Noise is piling up on its shelves. for the last time. Because after that Christmas business and selling out in January, it’s finally gone. Because the voice of the brain goes into the retirement it deserves. “It’s such a liberating feeling when you finally get your pension notice,” the lovable trader jokes, not entirely in a disingenuous way. “But if I were another 15 years younger, I’d go back to self-employment any time,” says Hirnshall, looking back with satisfaction.
About detours for children’s joys
Brain Voice came to the play store via diversions. He’s been an optometrist for half his career, and I’ve also come across brain ultrasounds in field service in the chemical industry. But he wanted to be self-employed. During the banking crisis of 2008 and 2009, Hernshall – who was on maternity leave at the time – pondered which branch it should be. The decision fell on playing. “Because we always love to play, it also keeps you mentally young,” says Hirnschall aka Spiele Peter. His children, who were very young at the time, naturally brought back childhood memories.
So he first opened a shop in Liesing, followed by a home in Klosterneuburg and finally in 2015 the location on Währinger Straße. After more than seven years, the colorful shop door was finally closed. At least for the brain itself.
Find the heir
However, Peter doesn’t want to sit back and relax yet. He was still looking for a successor to his Währing position. Of course, it would be better if it became a toy store again, and you don’t need a lot of previous experience for that: “In principle, anyone who wants to start their own business and doesn’t know what they want to do it, I can enter here. I knew it myself. Not exactly at that time,” jokes the toy retailer.
“This assignment is also not a problem for career changers. Even if I retire, I’m willing to join the army here in an advisory capacity,” Hirnshall asserts.
