Oh to be a Hoptimist!








On my recent trip back home I found the country invaded by these guys! Also a common sight in  the sixties, they have somewhat made a revival! The cute and very optimistic guys and girls are called Hoptimist, they were designed by the Danish furniture designer Hans Gustav Ehrenreich. What is the use of them I hear you say?  Hoptimist are at their happiest on your desk or table, gently bobbing around with every movement in the vicinity.  I have brought a few back to the UK as they do make me....
