Get the bright red Bumble from the Hoptimist collection from Denmark for your car or work desk

There might be little chance of feeling beat or overworked in Copenhagen. After all, it is the capital of one of the happiest nations of the world—Denmark. But if you were to feel drained at some point of time, a shot of Hoptimist cheer is all you need. A round, happy face and a springy neck bobbing in front of you can be hard to resist. Since a smile is almost imperative, I thought a bright red Bumble would be perfect to counter traffic woes in Delhi. Lodged on the dashboard of my car, he is now used to a swish of the hand as soon as I hit a jam. Only if a mid-sized Hoptimist didn’t cost as much as €24.95, I would have got the whole family of the girl Bimble, the boy Bumble and the frog Kvak, conceived by cabinet-maker Hans Gustav Ehrenreich in 1968.
