In addition to being fun, this bouncing brainiac with the mortarboard may just inspire you to learn and achieve more. The happy IQ Hoptimist is also a great congratulation gift for someone who has achieved good grades, graduated, or otherwise excelled academically or in the workplace. IQ is there to remind us that with hoptimism and happiness we can achieve success and create a brighter future.

Hoptimists go beyond optimism, transforming attitude to action— with a little help from you. They smile at you and wait for your response: maybe a smile, perhaps a slight tap to get the figure moving. They repay you by bouncing up and down, powered by surplus energy, thanks to the spring in the center of their bodies. Both adults and kids will be captured by their hoptmistic attitude!

Hoptimists were created by Danish designer Hans Gustav Ehrenreich in 1968, and they have been revived by his son Jørn Ehrenreich along with Lotte Steffensen. For ages 3+.
