German souvenir

if there is something symbolic from German’s history or design through times that I would buy as souvenir, is the Ampelmännchen (Ampel = traffic light, Männchen = little man), which is the little man with a detail of wearing a hat standing and walking which turned red or green on the traffic lights. Apparently, i personally didn’t know, was the old “eastern” little man traffic light before the reunification. And it has its own shop now, they sell from pins to shirts and backpacks. Love it! First time I saw the shop was in Berlin (2014) but I had seen the products/souvenirs in shops at the airport. If you ever come…
