Good Luck Troll: From toy to design object

Thomas Dam created the first Good Luck Troll in 1957 from his home in the small town of Gjøl by the Limfjord. The first figurine was supposed to be a self-portrait, which he carved as a gift for his daughter. However, Thomas thought the figurine looked more like a troll - and that's how the Good Luck Troll came to be.

The charming Good Luck Trolls have been much loved in homes around the world ever since. And from starting out as toy dolls, they have now become design objects sought-after by many collectors.

The Good Luck Trolls have gradually grown into one big family, with each member having its own unique character. However, all the trolls share one and the same mission: With their open arms and wide smiles, they want to spread joy and hugs to all around them.
