CHARACTER STORIES


Quipsterland is a magical place full of extraordinary characters. Every single Quipster is special in his or her own way. Some are bonkers, some are weird, others have peculiar talents..
Discover this wonderful place and count them all!

 

Quarterback
What an American Football hero! You'd think Quarterback's a real go-getter, winning in life but off field he's not so spectacular. He loves the simple life: tending to his garden, carving wood sculptures in his garage and collecting stamps. His childhood friends Beard and Burty ask him to always join in on their antics but Quarterback prefers to stay at home and prep for his next big game.
Trucker Joe
Remember our Redneck? Yeah, Joe settled down and started a family! Out of the love for his wife and kids, he ditched the rifle but someone is to provide for the family right!? Which is why he started a career as a trucker! Nowadays he's busy transporting fresh produce and lives a very mediocre life on his farm in Quipsterland's suburbs. But a little secret: He still makes his own whisky... his brand "XXX" is highly coveted among connoisseurs!
Maliboo
Maliboo has a bit of a soft spot for skimpy bathing suits and oversized sunnies. Unfortunately for Maliboo, she was rejected for a role in the iconic TV series Baywatch. Disappointed by her failure, she sat on the beach and pondered, when suddenly she spotted a black speck in the ocean. It was a drowning Quipster! In a heartbeat, she jumped into the rolling sets of waves and rescued him. Maliboo discovered her new found talent and from that day on, she became the top lifeguard in all of Quipsterland!
Fin
Possibly the coolest dude in Quipsterland! Fin was a waiter on a cruise ship when one day during one of his shifts - it was a rough day out at sea - he fell overboard! Thank god for Fin, his surfing talent saved his life: he surfed ashore onto Quipsterland's beach on his tray! He became fond of Quipsterland's laidback lifestyle so he decided to stick around and open his own surf school. We wouldn't say that Fin's an exceptionally gifted surfer yet he was a marketing and story telling genius: He made up a story that he was the world's one and only Quipster to have surfed ashore on a shark! To prove his crazy story, he went as far as cutting out shark bite marks on his surfboard… Hang loose!
Nerd
First things first: the reason why Nerd is one of our most beloved Quipsters is that he started it all: He was one of the first Quipsters around. A true classic that is featured in all our collections. That alone makes him a legend! The Sheldon Cooper of Quipsterland was born with an IQ somewhere beyond 150. Like many other nerds, he's not known to be a fashionista, and he's not exactly a womanizer either, so he very much relies on his good friend's help: our Beard knows how to get all the girls and desperately tries to teach Nerd - without success though.
Beard
From Berlin to Bondi Beach, this Quipster is by far the coolest hipster in town, Beard! Always being in a competition with his cousin Burty, our Beard tries to win the hearts of all girls on the beaches of Quipsterland. Our Beard is one of the most confident Quipsters, he regularly hosts surf and drink competitions where he desperately tries to teach some other Quipsters like Nerd or Lifeguard to be a cool dude.
Fluffy
Don't you agree that our Fluffy looks a little like an ostrich?! We can explain why... When he was a toddler he went camping with his dad, got completely lost and ended up at an ostrich farm. He sat between dozens of ostrich eggs until they hatched. They later accepted him to their pack, and after a while he began to look more like an ostrich than a Quipster - not even the farmer could tell them apart! But underneath all the fuzz, he is still a Quipster at heart. But guess what he does when he feels threatened... yes, he buries his head in the sand!
Princess
With weekly attendances to Shopaholics Anonymous, Quipster's Princess has a serious shopping addiction to anything sparkly, shiny and all things pretty! She loves big entrances, maybe that's why she's always late and keeps everyone waiting - Quipsterland's uber-diva! But hey, she's obsessed with fashion and is notoriously overdressed, even if she's only running errands, she looks like she's on the red carpet of the Oscar's. Also available in Grey. Pair it up with our matching Princess Sweatshirt!
Hula
Pssst.. we tell you a secret: our Hula is the twin sister of Princess. If you look closely, you can immediately spot similarities to her sister. But... unfortunately they don't only share their good traits, which means she is a shopping addict too and she's always late. Due to some credit card debts and a minor tax problem, she decided to move to Hawaii, changed her name, and founded a Hula dancing school on O'ahu.
Mozart
He was the Justin Bieber of his time. Sold out concerts, strange wigs and powder parties, groupies sleeping in front of his famous house in Salzburg's Getreidegasse were part of his lifestyle. But like many other famous rockstars, he left too soon! That's why Quipster's Mozart has come to take back his glory and fame!
Wizard
Abracadabra! Meet Quipster's favourite magic man: Wizard. Although kicked out of Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry for disciplinary reasons, he's still Harry Potter's bestie! But this is only one side of the story.. remember Quidditch? Well, our Wizard claims that the game was a product of his genius imagination. After sharing his idea with Hogwarts authorities, he was suddenly kicked out of school and the game was released without him. Our Wizard is absolutely convinced that all this is a plot against him to cut his share of the profit. Since then, he jingles from court to court and runs several law suits against Hogwarts. No one will ever know the truth, but we wish him luck to get the admiration he deserves!
Punk
Got married at the age of 20, became a father of three, our Punk is stuck in a booooring 9 to 5 job at a cardboard factory. He desperately needs a way to let off some steam with some very unusual hobbies: he likes to mingle with the crowds at anti-government protests to rebel and rock his socks off on the weekends... until he has to return to his super orderly desk every Monday. Who can relate, huh?!
Lady Liberty
Bored to tears from standing in the same spot for over 100 years, our Lady Liberty didn't feel at liberty at all. So, one day she decided to pack her stuff and discover the world. Soon she developed a real passion for fashion and started an internship at Vogue magazine. Her biggest dream in life is to become the next Anna Wintour! From time to time she also works as a fashion consultant for Quipster, helping us to get the most out of our products!
Pirate
Arrrr!! Quipster's friendliest yet poorest one-eyed, bearded Pirate who's never found a dime! He started as a bird breeder and has developed a true love for parrots. Soon he and his parrots became close friends and started hanging out together. But his friends and family thought that his hobby was a little weird, so he needed to find a way to justify his strange friendships: He grew a beard, stopped showering and decided to become an one-eyed pirate.
Mario
Ciao Bella! Meet Quipster's Michelin star rated chef, Mario! Or has he got us all fooled?! With his Italian flare, this trickster has moved his way up the rankings using his charisma and not his talents!
Bunny
Doesn't he look so cute? But don't let yourself be fooled by his looks. Our Bunny was a Navy SEAL back in the 70's. After his retirement he fell into a deep depression and found his way back into life by trying out several jobs. He was a bouncer at a famous 80's club, stuntman double for Bugs Bunny, he was a model for chocolate easter bunnies, and he even worked as a can opener at a restaurant (look at these teeth!).. until he found his true purpose in life: He became THE official Easter Bunny of Quipsterland and found happiness again.
Santa Claus
It hasn't been easy for Quipsterland's very own Santa Claus. He has missed out on Christmas more than once, his presents sometimes arrive and sometimes they don't. Maybe that's because of his weak sense of direction. We could also assume that maybe because he is also not the best driver... DUIs, parking tickets and withdrawals of license are pretty common for our Santa Claus. But anyway.. sure thing he is the most charming Santa of them all, right? Get our matching Rudolf T-shirt!
Rudolf
A true Santa Claus lover! As a kid he started collecting all kinds of stuff related to the famous white bearded guy. Unfortunately, he never managed to get close to his idol. But time was on his side! Santa's loyal reindeers Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blixem and Rudolph had become old and eventually had to retire. So, Santa was forced to hold an audition for young, fresh reindeers. This was the perfect occasion for our Rudolf (his real name is Herbert) to jump in a reindeer costume and fake his way into Santa's reindeer crew. Quipster's Rudolf with his nose so bright is the star of the show this Christmas! Pair it up with our matching Santa Claus T-shirt!
Ghost
Jealous of Casper's fame, Quipster's Ghost longs to be adored! He is not the most successful ghost on the planet: people just aren't scared of him, even though he tries really hard. One more reason for his lack of success is that he is the one who's notoriously scared of pretty much everything out there. He needs to visit motivational classes and even goes to therapy.
Burty
Beard's cousin Burty, is by far the coolest Quipster in town! The competition runs thick and high between these two as they both strive to win the hearts of all the lucky ladies in Quipsterland. Burty used to work as a successful broker back in the 80's, he was Wallstreet's bright star, but lots of parties, women, and dubious substances led him to a serious breakdown. That's when he decided he needs a major lifestyle change.. so he replaced suit and tie with a hot thong, changed location from bustling New York to the beaches of the world, and he let go of everything BUT parties and women. Burty exudes confidence as he exhibits his brown-sunburnt skin and golden chain stacks.
Bikini
She gave up her day job as a tax consultant to become a famous Instagram Fitness model. She radiates self-confidence and knows how attractive she is. A regular sunbather at Quipster Beach, she holds the Guinness Book of world records title for the most selfies shot in one minute. Meet Bikini! Also available as a tank top. Pair it up with our Burty T-shirt!
Love
What’s there to say about Love that hasn’t already been said? Love exists for as long as Quipsters have, and it's something that unifies them. You see, there's something very special about Quipsters; they're all so different yet they belong together. Everyone is welcome and accepted in this inclusive community that is Quipsterland. It's our Quipster couple that so beautifully symbolizes just that! Maybe we should take note and follow their example, wouldn’t you agree?
Lifeguard
No one knows that our Lifeguard has a serious sweet tooth. Every morning before he starts his shift as a lifeguard at Quipsterbeach, he shoves some Donuts in his mouth. Unfortunately it's become a habit, that's why he has gained some serious fat rolls around the hips. But hey, at least he is creative! He started to wear his rubber duck to hide his muffin tops. Clever, huh?
Q-Man
Stuck in a tree and saved by a cat, Quipster's Q-Man is not the most heroic superhero you have ever met! He has always been a mystery. Nobody has ever seen him without his famous Q-mask. And we keep asking ourselves: who is this guy?? No one can question his big heart and his strong sense for justice. But please... keep this guy out of any crime scene! Since he started to "fight" the evil, the bad guys are having the times of their lifes. The government spends thousands of Q-dollars to get this man to be a better super hero. Unfortunately without success.. Get the matching Q-Man backpack!
Helga
She wears the Lederhosen in this marriage! She's tough, curvaceous and full of joy! This is Helga and she makes the world's best Schnitzel. Get the matching Hans T-shirt!
Hans
Married to Helga for 30 years, the lovable Hans embodies everything that connects us to our beloved home country, Austria. He's easy-going, a lover of life and knows the true meaning of happiness - Beer and Pretzels! An Austrian country boy to his core, he runs his own micro beer brewery in Quipsterland. Oh by the way, he is not only a beer aficionado, but also a passionate eater and has won several Weisswurst eating contests. Get the matching Helga T-shirt!
Lolly
Our Lolly is only 3 years old and already has the biggest sweet tooth! The reason behind that is his parents slacked off a bit when it came to discipline. Lolly was a very active baby and wouldn’t sleep through the night. The only way Lolly would get some shut-eye was if his parents gave him a lolly - a convenient, albeit a rather unhealthy solution. Since then, no matter the situation, Lolly needs a Lolly, for if he doesn't get one, all of Quispterland will hear his cries. It has gotten so out of hand that Lolly was put on a strict lolly detox. Let’s see if it helps. Here’s to hoping!
Eggshell
Ever wondered what came first...The Quipster or the egg!? We will leave that up to your imagination! To this day, Scientists haven't captured the birth of a Quipster in the wild on camera. But the appearance of our Quipster Eggshell leads to assumptions that each Quipster's life starts in an egg. So keep your eyes open, next time you're hiking and you see a weird looking egg it might be a Quipster egg. Please hand it to a scientist and help shed light on one of the biggest mysteries of mankind! Pair it up with the adults T-shirt!
Gangster
During the ’20s Quipsterland experienced its own kind of prohibition - forbidding the sale of soft drinks! Can you imagine? But this is exactly how our Gangster rose to fame - bootlegging soft drinks right from under shop counters. He gained such popularity that he was given the title, "The Soft Drink Baron“! The police were helpless because there was no way to indict him; he was that clever. It's speculated that he made millions! Nevertheless, gangster life started getting too stressful and bouts of anxiety made Gangster decide to leave it all behind and move back to his home in Sicily, where he bought an orange orchard in the hopes of settling down and living an easy life. In 2013, he was one of the few Quipsters launched in the first batch of T-Shirts. Almost instantly they were sold out! Such was his popularity even in retirement. What a legend! However, this popularity wasn’t much to his liking though, so he decided to step away from the limelight. We're still hoping that maybe, one day, he might just change his mind.
Promking
Prom king is notoriously afraid of women and has never even had a girlfriend! That didn't stop him though, instead, he decided to step up and find a lovely lady to ask as his prom date. Even the 3.824 rejections wouldn't get the better of him! He began taking dance lessons and he even went as far as attending couples therapy! Yeah, about that, it was just a precautionary measure in case he ever found himself in a critical situation where his relationship was at stake. Makes sense, right? That's not all though, he made sure to consistently dry clean his ties and look for the latest dating sites he could join. Our Prom king is perhaps the best example for all the singles out there, who haven’t found their partner yet. Never give up because the right one is just around the corner.
Redneck
As you’ve probably already heard, Redneck is one of our very first Quipsters! Although, today, he is known as Trucker Joe. He completely transformed himself for the better and mended his ways. He lives a relatively peaceful life on his ranch with his wife and kids. Find out more about Trucker Joe in his story!
Baby
Our Quipster Baby is in fact not a baby. He’s actually 37 years old and divorced! Crazy, right? Tax returns, rent, insurances, credit statements.. it all got to him, and that’s when he decided adulthood wasn’t serving him. He didn’t want any part of it. From that day on, he went by the name „Baby“ and acted as such. He didn't care about anything anymore and wouldn’t even leave his home. We're told he still doesn’t. What an odd decision, in our opinion. He must really miss his childhood.
Figaro
Figaro invented the perm, at least that's what we're told. It was such an innovation that every hair salon simply had to offer it! Thanks to his creation, he opened numerous hair salons throughout Quipsterland. He became so popular that everyone wants him as their guest of honor and no VIP list is complete without his name on it. Little do they know, however, that Figaro has another side to him; he's got big dreams to open multiple boutique hair salons for dogs all over Quipsterland.
Afro
In college, he was an adored basketball player. Despite his short stature of only 1.72m, he was the top scorer of his team! Unfortunately, as so many stories go, he suffered a debilitating injury and was told he could never play basketball again. For most, this would mean a major defeat; not for our Afro though. Instead of being defeated, he decided to steer his life in a slightly new direction that would still involve his love of the game; he would become a basketball coach! In no time he became the new tactical mastermind behind basketball prodigies such as Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan. Oddly enough though, he suffers from social anxiety which is why you never find him in pictures. He prefers to stay in the background and let his closest friends, the world's top NBA stars, take the lead. He's so revered that Michael Jordan always makes sure to send Afro a pair of his latest sneakers. No wonder Afro has such an impressive sneaker collection!
Pierre
Did you know, Pierre was actually born in France and his full name is Pierre Leclerc? A few years ago he moved to Quipsterland to promote wine culture because of his love for this ancient delight. Today, he owns his own vineyard in the mountains of Quipsterland. The mild climate makes for almost effortless cultivating of the finest grapes. Because of the success of his wine, he can live out all of his passions; playing golf on his very own golf course, opening a wine academy of the highest standards, and, of course, owning a couples wellness retreat. Recently, he’s even started dabbling in an innovative grape-based cosmetic line. There's no doubt Pierre knows how to live the good life. Savoir-Vivre!
Gini
What a dud, our Gini. Every person that's become his master decided on returning him immediately. The problem isn’t that Gini isn’t enthusiastic about his profession, he’s unfortunately just not very good at it! Every time he grants a wish, the exact opposite happens. By the time he realizes it, it's too late. A piece of advice; don't wish for what you want.
Sailor
It was his biggest dream to one day become captain of his very own ship and crew. Unfortunately, Sailor suffers from left-right confusion. This makes navigating a ship somewhat tedious, even for the crew. Nevertheless, what many people don’t know, despite this weakness, he navigated the ship of none other than Christopher Columbus himself! Columbus wasn’t very convinced of his skills and how he became his navigator, no one knows. Nevertheless, Sailor was able to persuade him that they landed in India! Though only by chance, our Sailor managed to achieve something; the discovery of America! But because Sailor never appears in any historical writings of this discovery, he hired a lawyer to rectify these omissions. Sadly, without any luck so far.
Professor
According to unconfirmed sources, Professor holds a Nobel Prize in quantum physics! Nowdays, he has committed his life to saving the planet; as a researcher, he has been busy finding alternatives to fossil fuel. Without much success: three exploded laboratories later his insurance premiums were raised, which put our Professor under some serious financial pressure. So to finance his further research, he now teaches at the University of Quipsterland. Due to safety reasons, Professor is to stay away from fire and any form of explosives!
Timmy
This inconspicuous quipster is quite the sly fellow. Don't let his cute haircut fool you! In reality he’s a tough businessman and real estate mogul. Not only is he regarded as a business legend in Quipsterland, but he is also a role model for many young Quipsters. This was not always the case though. As a young boy he was very shy and struggled most of his life. At one point however, he decided to break out of that mold. Now, he is the largest landowner in Quipsterland and played a key role in developing the Downtown Financial District. Other than his apparent weakness for sweets and expensive cars that he so publicly displays, he’s always ready to lend an open ear to those seeking help because he knows that life is not always easy. He even makes sure to organize a yearly punch cake competition where he donates the proceeds to charity. No wonder everyone loves him so much!
Xmas Tree
Psst! You want to know a little secret? Our Christmas tree is actually not a Christmas tree at all! He’s a Quipster just like every other. Well, not quite like every other… He has an obsession for presents and surprises and loves unpacking gifts so much that its turned into a rather bizarre hobby: every year, just before Christmas, he sneaks into a Christmas tree lot. There he sits and waits until some unsuspecting family buys him. Once purchased, the family places him in their living room. After lavishly decorating what they believe to be a beautiful Christmas tree, they place all their gifts underneath him. After the family is sound asleep he quietly grabs as many gifts as he can carry and sneaks off. The police of Quipsterland is helpless. In a last desperate measure they hired Q-Man to capture the shameless gift thief. Will Q-Man be successful in this endeavor? We doubt it..
