Plump and proud like the real-life hippopotami of Virunga National Park, our plush hippos are a beautifully soft addition to any living room and a great gift for those with a soft spot for cushions, cuddly toys or semi-aquatic African mammals.
Our plush hippos are available in red, blue and brown, and are hand-crafted by the widows of fallen Rangers from locally sourced fabric. This may lead to some variations in pattern and material.
Invest In Comfort and Communities
As a social enterprise, all our plush animals are manufactured locally, with 100% of the profit going back to the Park and its surrounding communities, meaning everyone involved in their production benefits.
