Hans Moldanstein was Fritz Moldanstein's son who created Petey. When creating Petey he was trying to continue his father's line of work by creating Steintoys. He was born on October 6, 1790 to Fritz Moldanstein. His mother was a prostitute whose name is unknown. He died at age 48 after Petey jumped out a 15th story window with him. Petey was pretending to be in a spaceship zapping zobgobblers at the time. Steintoys, suffering the same fate as Moldantoys, lost all of its stock the next day and was closed.
