Hoptimist Billionaire Bimble Money Box in red, designed by Hans Gustav Ehrenreich, Denmark circa 1969

The Hoptimist ‘Billionaire Bimble’ moneybox is a classic of Danish Modern design.  The range of brightly coloured spring bodied toy figures were created by Hans Gustav Ehrenreich in 1969, and definitely embody a feeling of Space Age optimism and Pop Art fun into their quirky design.
