Hoptimist Hopping collectable fun toys and a Danish Design classic

In 1968, Danish cabinetmaker Hans Gustav Ehrenreich (1917-1984) started the production of Hoptimists. Ehrenreich began with the famous Birdies, but by 1969 Kvak and the classic Bimble and Bumble figures had been born as well.

The cute figures and the happiness-inducing design quickly spread throughout Denmark and far beyond. Ehrenreich has received many honours worldwide and today the Hoptimists are regarded as part of the extensive Danish Design family, from Kay Bojensen’s monkey to the PH lamp.


In 2009, the famous figures were relaunched by the company Hoptimist. It was the belief in the infectious joy of the Hoptimists that prompted the company to dust off the classic figures and show them to the world again. 


Hoptimist has developed the famous figures in new materials and given them new expressions whilst keeping true to the original design and spirit of Ehrenreich. Timeless and joyful quality toys. Made in Denmark – Hoptimist.com
