A Hoptimist is the epitome of smiles,
optimism and high spirits
Hans Gustav Ehrenreich created this happy Hoptimist movement in the late 1960s, and it has gone on to take its
place in Danish design history. Hans Gustav Ehrenreich’s wish was for Hoptimists to spread joy and put a smile on
everyone’s lips with their round shapes, enlivening colours and their charming bobbing.
Say hello to Bimble and Bumble, the very first Hoptimists from Hans Gustav Ehrenreich’s workshop. Today, the Hoptimist family consists of even more humorous characters who spread joy all year round.
The first Hoptimists
Ehrenreich created the first prototypes for Birdie, Bimble and Bumble in the late 1960s. In the spirit of that time, it was bright colours and harmonious, round shapes that characterised the first bouncy friends.
Bimble is the girl in a dress with smiling eyes, and Bumble is the ever-alert boy with wide-open eyes and a small stick-hat atop his head.
Experience the joy of giving
There is a happy Hoptimist for every occasion, no matter whether it is a student party, a birthday or something
