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.

stylishly useful!

5 of 5 stars 2018-06-14, , Kay Bojesen Denmark - Wooden Hippo, natural oak

Bought this to go with his slightly bigger blackboard style big brother who is in charge of guarding the chalk on this house. Put him in the kitchen, on your desk or on the table in your hall to look after his little pencil, which is carefully held in his moving jaws. Never be rooting around again for something to scribble that note or phone number with, your faithful friend will keep guarding it wherever you left him. As with all the Kay Bojesen family of animals he is beautifully crafted and comes carefully encased in his paper "straw" in his own little box. Super Father's day gift or for that difficult to buy for man in your life!

The new released black wooden Hippopotamus by Denmark. I have owned a natural wooden Hippopotamus with oak. So I don’t want to miss to get the black one.
