Hippos with Santa hats were a thing I didn’t know I needed (even with I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas) until I got a custom request for one! 🙂
It took me a few tries to get the hat to come out just right, but now that I look at the festive little guy, I really want to make some more. And maybe add some Christmas lights looped around his neck and trailing off…

Fat Hippos #001-003
To be honest, hippopotami were not the first animal that sprang to mind when I started sculpting the Fat Animal Magnets for Christmas, but apparently they should have!
Somehow I had forgotten about the earworm I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas, but thankfully my cousins hadn’t and it resulted in an impromptu singalong in their kitchen. I also have one pending request for a hippo in a Santa hat that I still need to sculpt…
I’m looking forward to make a bunch more of these, they are a lot more fun than I had expected and ideas for fantasy variations are creeping out of the workbench. *pats magnets fondly*
