Danish term or phrase: humørbomb
This is taken from ad copy describing a jacket.

Sentence:

Elementet med strukturelle effekter skabes i form af små ”humørbomber”, hvor designeren igen fornyer retstrikningens muligheder.

fun bobbles
Explanation:
This is a pun on the more common knitting term 'bomber' - the effect of incorporating little bumps on to the surface of a smooth piece of knitting. 'Humørbombe' means a jolly person, life and soul of the party etc. Here, I imagine the idea is to describe a humorous/fun effect. These links show what bobbles look like; hopefully, you've got a picture of the jacket to confirm that this is the same effect.
