A Hoptimist made out of wood – just as the designer Gustav Ehrenreich initially wanted it. This is the reason why Lotte Steffensen re-designed the Woody Kvak.
Ehrenreich, the one that created the Hoptimists in the 1960ies, was a trained carpenter. It was his greatest desire to manufacture the Hoptimists out of wood, but this wasn’t really possible with the time’s technology. Time however, worked for the development: in order to make Ehrenreich’s dream come true, there are the happy Kvak out of wood today.
It is about a piece of real handcraft, a high quality product that has completely been constructed by hand. The oak wood comes from sustainably renewable European forests. The natural material offers its unmistakable appearance to every single Hoptimist. One special detail: The eyes are made out of inland Wengé wood and they offer vivacity to the figure.
Besides Woody Kvak, there is also the smaller edition Baby Woody Kvak available.
