It's cute to be shy! You are not likely to miss this 8-meter high statue by artist Tommi Toija. Check out the Bad Bad Boy lunch specials from adjacent Little Big Cafe or Subway restaurants.

I have been to Helsinki only once but I'm pretty sure this is the most light hearted thing in whole Scandinavia. Apparently it's been touring around the city urinating everywhere because they keep moving and placing it in different areas. But hope they don't remove it for good because it maybe too lighthearted for their serious nature.

I'm not sure though that if it encourages you to do the same or raising awareness about public display of affection but whatever the artist's intention was, it brings a smile to your face.

A very ugly statue that I don’t like very much. Used to be situated at the Market Square, but fortunately they moved it farther away to the West Harbor.

It' was a sudden and amusing surprise when the statue suddenly appeared as we took a coach to the ferry terminal.

In some ways it is a shame that it is not located in a more central location.

I enjoy toilet humour, so this was right up my alley.

It was not difficult to find for us, as it was right next to where our Oceania cruise ship docked.

It was great for some silly photos.

Note that it is right next to the building that has houses the "Helsinki Computer and Game Console Museum." So that's two fun, free things to do, side-by-side.

Funny and nice sculpture as it's little different. He deserves a better location as he is little hidden and out of the city centre. Anyway it was worth visiting him.

We loved the statue! Hard not to love it! Here you find a 8.5 meters tall boy with an embarrassed expression and a blush. Bad Bad Boy was first erected in 2014 in Helsinki’s East Harbour. It is made by artist Tommi Toija. In 2016 the statue was moved to the city’s West Harbour.

It makes for some giggles, nice photo moments. At the right angles it might look like the statue is watering some flowers in the area.

I seem to be drawn to peeing statues when I visit Europe! I must say...this was certainly the tallest one I've come across! If you're looking for the quirky...I would say...visit him!

It wasn't so special but I appriciate the art. Wasn't worth the 25 minute travel time, fun to take some pictures and see kids run through the "pee".

Bad Bad Boy has been moved and is not located in the area near the water. It was only by chance we found him. Although there is no ‘wee’ it is still very amusing and we thoroughly enjoyed taking pics :)

What is the fascination with little boys and their toys going to the toilet in Europe? This one is quite funny and worth a photo snap for your instagram. Love the face!
