This hippo would make a great birthday gift for a friend who believes (like me!) that you're never too old to love stuffed animals, or a sweet baby shower gift to complete a nursery.
Created from my own pattern, this hippo is sewn from high-quality 100% cotton fabric. The main body is pink, and inner ears and underbelly are a contrasting yellow. It is stuffed firmly with soft, smooth polyester fiberfill to eliminate lumps and bumps and keep its shape. It's also machine-sewn with poly-cotton thread for strength and finished by hand. The stacked button eyes are sewn on with sturdy cotton quilting thread to ensure this hippo maintains perfect vision!
This listing is for the hippo in the top four photos only.
SOFTIE SAFETY: I consider my softies to be soft sculptures, not toys. While I take pride in my craftsmanship and believe my work will withstand normal wear and tear, my softies are not intended for children under 12. I am happy to swap out button eyes for felt ones if you prefer.
CARE: Yes, it's washable! Softie fabric has been washed prior to use. If your softie needs a cleaning, please wash gently and air dry.
ALLERGIES: I craft in a small apartment that is smoke-free but cat-friendly--I *am* Kitty Kitty Crafts, after all! I do my best to keep my cat from "helping" me too much, but if you're extremely sensitive to pet dander, please keep this in mind. All of my work is washable, and I'm happy to give your purchase a quick launder before shipping if you'd like--please just let me know!
