Kay Bojesen Hippo

The wooden hippo is part of a collection of wooden animals that were created by the designer Kay Bojesen between 1935 and 1957. It is the most angular animal design by Kay Bojesen and, thanks to its movable mouth, is the only one with a functional use as a pen holder.

Fantasy Figure and Design Object

Kay Bojesen himself used the adorable colossus as pencil holder. With this function, the hippo is the ultimate gadget for adults and children, on the desk at home or in the office. That is how the wooden hippo took its place on the unique threshold between fantasy figure and design object. Full of soul, humour, and craftsmanship, this clever little piece appeals to the inner child in all of us.

Collector's Item and Gift Idea

The wooden animals by Kay Bojesen are not only popular in children’s room, but they are also passed down from generation to generation as collector's items or quirky little accessories on shelves. Therefore, the wooden animals are the perfect gift for every occasion: baptisms, birthdays, confirmations, graduations, weddings, anniversaries.

The wooden hippo by Kay Bojesen is available in different types of wood.
