Plush Hippo



Plush hippos wrapped in traditional African Kitenge cloth, hand-crafted with love by the widows of Virunga’s fallen Rangers.

SKU: 5430002143309 Category:


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.

  • Brown plush hippo made by the widow's workshop

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.
