I find this expression interesting. I used to think this is all about a magic trick you show to little kids and it had to be amazing when the one they thought was gone suddenly comes back. I didn't know it can also have a totally different and morbid meaning. There are things which are lost in a magical way and for some reason it just finds itself trappen in some realm we can never see again. It's sad I know. Where did all those toy soldiers really go?
