Hippo Model, Looking for a home!

I've bought a sturdy box and some packing materials. The Hippo model is ready for a trip! If you would like the Hippo model to come and live with you and you are a paid up member, please leave a comment below. At the end of next week I'll pick a name out of the hat and choose a lucky winner!

Thanks in advance for your interest!

<—— Thanks for your interest everybody! ——————>

The winner is…. .. Trinity! Please get in touch so I can ship the Hippo out to you!

        We finished this model and had a show in Shanahan Middle School (8th Grade, i3STEM class), but it broke. Perhas because the last tooth of the small gear did not match up very well…there was a large gap…so may be I get this…

    Come here, Little Blue Hippo!

    Come here, Little Blue Hippo! My husband Paul would delight to have you next to the Rob Ives walking cat model featured at his office desk. Many, many people will pick you up there and marvel at how ingenius you are. Paul's been working too many hours to build you himself. Besides, having Rob's hands be the ones who put you together will have you regarded as being a near holy relic!

    You bought a box! Surely you have one to re-use with all the Amazon ones that arrive at Ives towers!

    Why not send the hippo to

    Why not send the hippo to Germany?

    Could save you your box and postage, as it can swim here:

    1) release into the Irish Sea

    2) drift South all along the Welsh Coast

    3) turn left into the English Channel

    4) enter the river Rhine in Holland

    5) some 700kms later turn left into the Black Forest.

    We have hot spas to make it feel like back home …
