Do you know this song? “I want a hippopotamus for Christmas, Only a hippopotamus will do, Don’t want a doll, No dinky tinker toy, I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy”

Well, it’s not Christmas anymore, but one can wish for a hippo all year long! I was looking for ideas for baby showers and small gifts easy to make, so I made this hippo and wrote a pattern that I have made available on my ETSY Shop

As usual I used acrylic yarn, and a small hook to make the stitches really tight. He is only 6 inch and fits in the palm of my hand. I think he turned out really cute! All he needs now is a puddle of water to splash in it.

I really enjoy making small animals, I have a lion, an elephant, a monkey and now a cute hippo with big dorky eyes. My next project is a giraffe, soon enough I will be able to open a zoo!

I Just found out that my amigurumi hippo was featured in a shopping & style magazine called Lucky. The topic is untitled “20 Quick and Classic Etsy Gifts Perfect For Any Occasion”.

Lucky is a shopping guide that offers shopping tips, fashion advice, and articles detailing current trends. I am very flattered that they picked an item from my ETSY shop. This is a good day, and I had to share it!
