ABOUT HAPPY

Our Story

Happy_about_company

Hi there, we are HAPPY!

Happy is a family company based in Belgium. The story started in 1986 when Dirk, a crazy inventor from Zoersel, created the Happy Cube©® puzzle. And so, the HAPPY company was born more than 30 years ago. Today, it remains our aim to challenge people into HAPPY-ness with our brain training 3D cubes. We welcome you to explore and experience their endless possibilities. Test your flexibility on handling changes, develop your spatial insight and last but not least… be persistent and make yourself HAPPY!

Happy History

Around 1990, the Happy Cube puzzles started to have different trade names, from Coco-Crash in Spain, the Wirrel Warrel Puzzles in the Netherlands and Happy Cube in Germany, Denmark and UK. We also expanded the product line to Little Genius for children and to Profi Cube & Marble Cube for the  more advanced puzzler. These designs were also set specific, so they can be combined together to make 4 cm cubes.

In 2017 we decided to rebrand our 3D puzzles to “Happy Cube” and put them in brand new packaging.

 

Happy revolution 2

Beside our well-known Happy Cube collection, we also have some more budget-friendly cubes. The six-edged Planet Cubes – also named Snafooz , and a the very small Micro Cube of 1x1cm.

For the youngest puzzle wizards, there is an easy pre-school puzzle: the Smart Cube. This cube set can be combined with the Happy Cube XL set… as they are both 5cm cubes.

It is a conscious choice to use ‘ethylene vinyl acetate’ or EVA foam material as basic material for the Happy Cube puzzles. Even more…. it is the backbone of this puzzle concept. The flexible, soft and lightly stretching structure enables the ‘cling on’ when the puzzle pieces are combined into a cube. The foam carries the constructions as a solid puzzle.

  • "EVA is one of the least harmful synthetic materials. With optimal combustion, only CO2 and H2O are released, so thermal recycling can be done. The calorific value of EVA is similar to that of oil. So you can say that EVA is a rather environmentally friendly plastic."

The EVA foam Happy Cubes are long-lasting toys. Luckily, the EVA is also washable at 30°C. So you can refresh the puzzles and keep your toys and children clean. But please, do not tumble dry!
