This hungry hippo loves munching on… pencils?

This iconic oak wood hippopotamus was originally crafted by world-renowned Danish silversmith and designer, Kay Bojesen, who began creating a jungle full of gorgeous wooden animals in 1936. When this 4 inch hippo arrives on the scene, your little one’s desk will never be quite the same. Best of all, the only upkeep this hippo requires is wiping with a dry cloth from time to time. From their childhood bedroom to their future office, this heirloom stands the test of time as both a beloved childhood friend and a unique art piece.
