Know about this?
It is much smaller than you think, and tucked away on a fairly anonymous street corner.
Unique Suggestions: The souvenir shop next door though shows it remains popular, and some of the gifts are quite funny (not necessarily in the way they were intended). In particular there is a huge selection of packs of playing cards, each one having the Mannekin wearing a different costume. For diehard kitsch fans only :-)
Fun Alternatives: No point in suggesting an alternative, you know you're going to go and see it anyway.

I was walking around not even looking for Manneken Pis, and who did I run into? Manneken Pis! This was the lamest thing I ever saw....he wasn't even dressed up!
Unique Suggestions: Even if you are subjected the Manneken Pis's lameness, take a picture for good mesure.
This is a very small fountain of a boy relieving himself. It is a short walk from Grand Place. For some reason, this gets a lot of attention from visitors. There is even an entire wardrobe for the statue. All over town, you can buy replicas of the fountain in various sizes. Some of them even have a pump so that you can shoot water through it. Fortunately, it costs nothing to see it. However, if you do miss this site in Brussels, you are not missing too much.
Unique Suggestions: Be advised that it is very small and is in a type of enclosure. If you blink, you might miss it.

Maybe it is a must see, but the little Manneken-Pis is quite stupid. The only cool thing is that he gets dressed up in different outfits every so often.
OK, so its small
OK, so its small and twee, but its free and you don't have to hang around too long.
Unique Suggestions: Go early to avoid the crowds.
Maneken Pis:Well he's cute,...
Well he's cute, but Brussels is filled with people wandering around looking for him. He isn't worth the quest!
This statue is so popular and small too!
Everywhere you go in Brussels you will see this little boy´s figure. It is so small when you actually get to see the statue but I guess is something you have to see when you go to Brussels.
