1980s Soviet metal pin of Murzilka (Мурзилка), a popular Soviet Russian illustrated magazine for 6–12 year olds. It has been published since May 1924. In the first edition, Murzilka was a small white dog and was the hero of the stories of the children's writer A. A. Fedorov-Davydov. In 1937 the illustrator Aminadav Kanevsky created the new design of Murzilka – now a yellow furry character in a red beret with a scarf and a camera over his shoulder.
In 2011 the magazine was listed by the Guinness World Records as the longest running children's magazine in the world. The magazine is still running today.
