Safeguarders of high spirits
The Danes have once again been named the world’s happiest people. And it doesn’t come much more Danish than the Queen’s handsome guards.
With his tall bearskin and polished boots, the guard is a proud symbol of Denmark – and thus also of Danish happiness. So it goes without saying that there is guard in the family of happy Hoptimists. This little fellow is a safeguarder of high spirits, ensuring that a broad smile is brought to the lips of everyone who sets eyes on him. As thanks for his efforts, you can give him a little pat on the head. He could do with a good jump. Again and again and again.
One, two or an entire regiment? The guard costs €24.95 and is a straight-backed 12 centimetres tall.
