The Jonas Brothers have a song about wanting a hippopotamus for Christmas and my sister really likes them, so...

I made her a hippo for Christmas!!! And I gave it a festive little scarf. Idk about you but I think its adorable, haha.







Does the face look ok? I was going to add nostrils or teeth to it, but I wasn't sure exactly where, so I just left them off. I think it looks ok though.

1.  Your hippo is perfectly adorable.  Your sister will love it.  The scarf adds the perfect touch!

2.  Jonas brothers are cute and all, but that song was originally performed BEFORE my mother was born, and she's in her 50s.  I always giggle to myself when remakes get credit as originals (note: I'm not picking fun at you, I just thought I'd share).

What a cute hippo.  I think it looks great with just the eyes.  Makes him more mysterious. Smiley

Cool story about that song, the hoopla generated by it raised money to buy a baby hippo named Matilda for the Oklahoma City Zoo.  Cute hippo!

In that case, I'm glad they did.  What would Christmas be without that hippo!?
