Hansa 4037 Brown Hippo Hand Puppet Realistic Plush Toy

This appealing Hansa Hippo Hand Puppet wants to teach you about Africa and his love of water. Ideal for interactive play, hand puppets can be story tellers, adventurous friends, confidantes or an educational tool and more. It’s now up to the guiding puppeteer, that means you, to work your magic.

Hippo is a L21.7. cm x W20 cm x H23.7 cm non-jointed, full-bodied plush toy hand puppet. He looks fun yet mischievous with a delightfully tactile touch. All he needs is to be activated. A pocket in his rear allows for a hand to reach in all the way up to his head and front legs to mobilize movement and animate. The hippo himself has a genuine, realistic form and is sewn from a mix of luxurious plush. Primarily dark brown, with a velvety-touch caramel for his finger-twirling inner ears, plus cream for his shaped feet. He has an open-mouthed expression (is he laughing or giggling?), in pale pink with a darker hued, rose pink tongue with fabric detailed nostrils, eye surrounds for his two-tone brown safety eyes and fluffy tail tip. Hand shading has been used to define and shape his distinctive head and torso. You could have great entertainment with this one!

Sponge clean and air dry.

World of bears was fantastic. I had to email to change my delivery postcode, but the Head Bear emailed me back immediately to say everything was fine. Felt really personal and great, will definitely use again for all my bear needs!
