  • Kay Bojesen's world-famous wooden figures are classic gifts for children and adults alike. Each character is hand-crafted in Denmark by expert craftsmen and furniture makers, and have movable parts. When you give or receive a Kay Bojesen you can take pride in its Scandinavian authenticity.
    Kay Bojesen designed these two happy skiers towards the end of the 1940s. The happy girl skier with the red cheeks and big smile is called Datti, which was the pet-name of Kay Bojesen's daughter-in-law Ruth (married to Otto). The name of the male skier, Boje, was the pet-name of Bojesen's son Otto. The original wooden figures are very rare, as they were only produced in small series. With their cheerful expressions, this pair of skiers always make people smile, and they are all set to conquer Danish living rooms and homes again in this relaunch. Both skiers are made of painted beech in the same way as the Royal Guardsman.
    Kay BojesenKay Bojesen graduated as a silversmith in 1910 after completing his apprenticeship at Georg Jensen. He embraced the movement towards functionalism in Danish crafts by co-founding "Den Permanente" — a showcase retail shop featuring the best in Danish design. In the 1930s he explored his passion for wood. Creating animals that matched his belief that a product should be "round and soft and feel good in your hand." The lines in a design should "smile." He felt his animals should never be an exact replica of nature. With all of these beliefs in mind, Kay Bojesen has created treasured and beloved characters that appeal to the child within us all. Their easy expressions have brought joy to many the world over. Explore and experience the warmth of Kay Bojesen!
