SANTA CLAUS AND MRS. CLAUS
Kay Bojesen created Santa Claus in the 1940s. With his round cheeks and white beard, he stood all over Kay Bojesen’s shop in Copenhagen and his home in Bellavista, where he ushered in the festive season. Customers who dropped into the shop, especially their children, were often given a Santa Claus as a gift to take home. Santa Claus seldom stands by himself. He and Mrs. Claus make a cute Christmas couple, exuding happiness and Yuletide cheer.

There are many subspecies of Kay Bojesen’s wooden animals, ranging from the hefty elephant to the miniature monkey, but they all have one thing in common. Whatever their size, they all have great character and ooze world-class Danish design. They have also inherited Bojesen’s famous sense of humour. That is particular true at Christmas, when the monkey and the other animals boldly borrow Santa Claus’s pixie hat and spread Christmas cheer throughout the home.
The small pixie hat fits the small monkey, small bear and mini elephant. The mini pixie hat fits the mini monkey and the turtle doves.

Boje the Skier was named after Kay Bojesen’s son Otto, whose nickname was Boje, while the female skier Datti was named after the designer’s daughter-in-law Ruth, whose friends and family called her Datti . Both skiers have Kay Bojesen’s cheerful, humorous expression and are always up for a spot of skiing in the Norwegian Fells.
