PostSubject: Toy Major : Three Hippos   Thu Feb 24, 2011 11:33 am

I bought on eBay these three Hippos, I was only interested in one the others I don't really like.
So first the one I was after, it has on it's belly "TM Hippopotamus 1994 made in China", I thought it was quite realistic and it's unusual to see a hippo with it's mouth shut.

and with the rest of them

The one with it's mouth open is "Funrise" and the little one just has "A Hippo made in China" on it's belly

Thanks Kristie and Larry flower flower
Kristie I can thoroughly recommend the Papo hippo, it's an amazing model cheers she's quite a bit bigger than the Schleich hippo I think.

I had that first Hippo a few years ago but very stupidly sold it Rolling Eyes
Mine had a yellow/green rub on one side and was my favourite. I'll have to keep an eye out for another one. Thanks for reminding me, Harriet :)

If anyone is after the hippo there's one here on eBay

The same seller is selling the retired Schleich Bison too.
