Outrageous can be oh-so-fun, like this fat little delightful hippopotamus. Carved dark kisii stone, hand-painted in assorted splashy designs.

    My larger Kenya Hippo has a baby now. I just adore my hippos. I also bought several of the larger Hippos for gifts - and know I will buy more of the babies, too. Each little baby hippo I have seen is different - such great fun! My "Grand Niece" likes to play with the hippo I bought for my brother, so I am buying a small hippo for her (for Christmas --- as she sang a song for me "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" - so she shall get one).
