Tawa The Hippo by Jefita

Tawa is an ancient Egyptian hippo and world traveler extraordinaire. After spending a few millennia in a dark, boring hole in the ground, some people dug her up and took her to live in a museum where they took very good care of her. She enjoyed living in the museum for a while, and made lots of friends. Eventually she decided she needed to see all the interesting places her friends told her about and quietly slipped away from the museum one night, to the consternation and confusion of the curators. Now she travels the world looking for new friends and adventures. She is a very friendly and gentle hippo, unlike her fearsome counterparts. Made of Ecospun polyester felt and filled with soft polyfill, this little hippo is completely hand sewn. She is about 2" (5 cm) tall and 4" (10 cm) long or nicely pocket sized.
