It all started with a bird, then a girl, a boy and a frog. In 1968, Danish cabinetmaker Hans Gustav Ehrenreich (1917-1984) started the production of Hoptimists. Ehrenreich initially designed the famous Birdies, but by 1969 the girl Bimble, the boy Bumble and the frog Kvak were born.
Since then, more figures have been added to the family, and today Bimble, Bumble, Birdie and Kvak represent the classics that started it all. Back then, the colours were red, yellow, orange and green, but today the happiness-inducing designs come in a wealth of colours. Bimble is recognisable by her smiling eyes, while Bumble’s eyes are attentive and inquisitive.In 1968, Danish cabinetmaker Hans Gustav Ehrenreich (1917-1984) started the production of Hoptimists.

The Hoptimists in copper have a special ability to reflect the room they are in. The copper gives each Hoptimist an exclusive look that will brighten up your desk, windowsill or the room you put it in.
And that’s not all. The Hoptimist in copper reflects your reaction when you give it a little push. We like to say that it counts your smiles. See for yourself – most people raise a smile when the Hoptimist begins to hop.
