This cuddly soft toy hippo makes a great birthday gift, built to last from my soft lambswool fabric and handmade in London with love.
Each of our impressive and unique British Hippos are designed and handmade by Vicky. The hippos make a wonderful gift for a new baby, Christening, Christmas or birthday gift. They have instant impact and will continue to be loved and cherished for years to come by adults and children alike. Suitable for ages 0-100. Hippos are also stuffed using pure wool which makes them environmentally friendly and super squidgy to hug !
cdbdi toys are made from 99% wool and 1% cotton ( stitching and label ) Wool is naturally flame retardant, easy to clean, breathable and non-allergenic. Wool is perfect for asthma and allergy sufferers. It is also sustainable and biodegradable making them environmentally friendly.
These gorgeous handmade soft toy hippos come in dark purple with a lilac tummy and pink nostrils! They are about 33 cms high and are super squidgy.
If you like you can have a name hand embroidered onto the hippo's tummy, this is £5 extra. Please choose Yes and add the name you would like in the personalisation box if you would like this option.
To make your hippo even more special, a personalised scroll can be printed and sent with the toy (£5 extra) Please see the image showing how the scroll will be personalised and enter your name and the name of the recipient in the scroll box, if you have selected the scroll option.
Hippo's are wrapped in tissue paper and ribbon, bubble wrap and sent free UK tracked post in a tough postal bag.
The lambswool wool for the hippos comes from Hinchliffe Yarns, Denby Dale, Yorkshire. It is machine knitted by Mandy in Gloucestershire and Vicky then washes the wool to create a cuddly, quality fabric that is built to last.
Sponge clean or dry clean. These hippos are tested to the highest standards, suitable from birth and CE marked. If over time the wool becomes a bit 'bobbly' shave gently with a safety razor, don't shave over the stitching!
