Kay Bojesen's numerous figures are very popular with children and adults and this version is no exception. The hippo was originally designed in 1955 to keep the pencil on the desk under control. This updated version serves a similar purpose. The hippo is made of beech wood and is painted with black blackboard paint, so you can take small notes on it or use it as a notepad on the desk. The hippo is about 2 cm taller and wider than the model currently in the range, offering more space for drawing and writing. The white chalk is supplied in a cardboard box. A Kay Bojesen classic that will accompany its owner for a lifetime.
