Unfortunately I don’t remember what’s all about tom thumb. Probably there you can find some explanation about what shax system is

It's 'Shox' system. It just looks like shax in the visual because of the script.

Don't know why they've used Tom Thumb is what I ment. Doesn't seem to relate to the product at all.

The story is about a little boy who is left in the woords by his parents. He drops little white pebbles to find his way back. His parents find him again and leave him for a second time. He now uses breadcrumbs to find his way back but these were eaten by birds. He stumbles on the house of a giant. He changes the crowns of the giants children with his and his brothers hats. The giant kills his own children and finds Little Thumb (how he is called here) The giant wants to revenge on Little Thumb, Little Thumb steals the shoes of the giant to flee from him. Because he has the 7 leage boots, the giant is unable to cath him, he is too fast for him. The giant returns home only to find Little Thumb has taken his treasures too.

That is the story of Little THumb, Kleinduimpje, Thumb Tom etc.
(yes it sounds alot like Hansel ans Grettle but this is his story. Look it up if you don't believe me.)

I know the version i posted has a really big feel of hansel and gretle but this is one of the versions that I know. There are somewhere about 16 diffrent versions of Tom Thumb, Thumbelina, etc. It is a widely known and culture adapted fairytale.

Hmm, I didn't even see Tom Thumb until it was pointed out. And I even looked at the shoes. I wonder if they ought to have made him a tad maore noticeable?
