- Schleich hippopotamus
The skin of a hippopotamus secretes a natural sunscreen that is red or orange coloured and helps them with the hot sun of the day. They live in groups of around thirty, spend most of the day in the water, despite not being able to swim, and although herbivores, are considered one of the most aggressive and dangerous animals in Africa.
Encourage love and respect for the animal kingdom with these exquisitely realistic figurines. The top plastic figurine manufacturer since the 1950's, each animal, fairy, and dinosaur is carefully designed and manufactured using the strictest safety regulations for plastic toys. Educators, parents, and children all contribute to the final creation of each figure for optimal imaginative play.
