The elusive House Hippo has been one of the most desired creatures for Canadian kids since the early 1990's and now you can finally own one!
House Hippos are notoriously shy and nocturnal and are good at taking care of themselves. They love to munch on potato chips (because who doesn't?) and forage for crumbs and bits of dropped food. Keeping cozy is a top priority so they tend to build themselves little nests made up of lint, fuzzy scraps and odd socks. In the wild hippos are notoriously aggressive but House Hippos are docile around humans. When placed on a bedside table they make excellent defenders against anything that makes strange sounds at night.
You will need: a sheet of felt, matching colour embroidery floss, a pair of 6mm doll safety eyes, needle and pins. I describe it as Beginner+ and recommend it for ages 12 and up.
Finished House Hippos measure approx. 5" x 3" (13cm x 8cm).
