Despite its calm appearance, it is best not to rub against a hippo. Even crocodiles are wary of this 3-ton mastodon with impressive canines. This semi-aquatic animal lives along the rivers of Africa and spends its days immersed in water to fight against the heat. It is only after dark that he reaches the mainland to eat fresh grass (up to 40 kg per day).
The hippopotamus is easily recognizable! It has a massive silhouette, small ears, short legs and a huge mouth with impressive teeth. The hippos live in groups of about fifteen individuals respecting a strict hierarchy.

For almost 25 years now, Papo has been helping younger and older children to develop and to discover the world around them. Childhood is a time of dreams and adventures, and this was what we had in mind when we decided to create, invent, innovate with a wide range of animals or characters. One constant factor which has not changed over the years is quality (the quality of the sculptures and of the materials used) which has always been our watchword and will remain so.
