I was in a store recently and noticed a stuffed animal that looked a lot like a hippo. I had to buy it immediately. This stuffed hippo was a total cutie.
This one is an adorable kitten stuffed with a hippo head. It’s not a perfect replica of the hippo, but it’s pretty darn close.
There’s absolutely no right or wrong way to get a stuffed hippo. You could buy one, or you could buy a complete hippo head. If you want a smaller hippo, you can make your own by wrapping a sheet of cardboard around and over the top of a hippo’s head to make a sort of tent, and then stuffing the head into the tent.
If you want a stuffed hippo you could buy a cheap wooden hippo head, or you could buy one of the expensive ones that are made out of solid wood, and you could paint the head a rainbow of colors and cut it out of a sheet of plastic. The cheaper ones can be found everywhere, and they are definitely worth the money.
The other option is to just go a more traditional hippo route and cut the hippo out of a block of solid wood. It’s not as cool, but it’s also probably safer, and it might be better for you. You may also want to make it clear that you are not going to be eating it.
I love hippos. They are adorable and they are a great way to represent animals in a new way. But as much as I love them, I also get a little bit uncomfortable with the idea of eating a stuffed hippo. Not that it’s wrong to eat a stuffed animal, but it almost seems like it would be a little bit weird.
I get that you don’t get to eat hippos… but I don’t get the point of eating them. It’s basically like doing the whole “veggies in the house” thing. You’re just going to be eating the same thing over and over. I don’t see what the point is, except maybe a little bit of social stigma.
Hippos are, in the words of the folks at hippo company, “animals who eat grass.” Like chickens, they have a tendency to eat anything that moves. The fact that Hippos are now legal to eat in the USA means that they are allowed to be eaten by humans. So we can no longer eat Hippos, but they are still legal to eat and so we can eat them. And we can eat them without a bunch of other weird social expectations.
Of course, Hippos aren’t the only ones with grass-eating habits. Every pet on this planet has grass-eating habits, and in fact, the grass that some of us eat is a product of a grass-eating animal’s habits. It’s a little like having a dog who is allergic to grass and therefore can’t eat it, but has to eat the dog-grass instead. So if we can eat grass, we can eat pet grass.
So if we can eat pet grass, and we can eat hippopotamus grass, we can eat grass.
