Ostheimer Hippopotamus Mouth Open
Height: 4,5 cm

A visit to the zoo is a highlight for every child. It is wonderful to watch all the strange animals from such close distance and to learn about their life and origin. New parts of the world open up and make life even more fascinating. The wild animals become part of the imaginative world of our children - and that is, part of their play.

For more than 7 decades, the German toymakers from Ostheimer Wooden Toys have brought an adorable and lovely image of the world into countless children’s rooms. While our children engage in free imaginative playing they are able to take important steps in their development, they experience the beauty of childhood and gain talents that will strengthen them.

Every Ostheimer Wooden Toy is hand-crafted in Germany. From the draft to the finished product all toys pass through many hands while they are designed, sawed out, sanded, rubbed-off, painted with non-toxic stain and oiled. This way each of their adorable wooden figures become a unique original made for children’s hands and telling its own story.

Ostheimer Wooden Toys are without doubt the finest wooden toy figures available in the world. This Ostheimer figure is also recommended by »spiel gut«. The "Spiel Gut" seal is one of the most prestigious certifications for children's toys in Germany.

Recommended for children from 3 years.

Beautifully Made

This hippo is just beautifully made. My children use him almost everyday and he has been the star of many magical worlds they have created using their growing collection of Ostheimers alongside their grapat loose play items. Here is is pictured giving our unicorn a lift across the ocean 🤣😍

beautiful piece!

Got this hippo for my 7 and 3 year old and they love it. It's so life-like and funny with its big gaping mouth. Good size and beautiful finish!


This hippo was much bigger than expected! It's a great size for starting an Ostheimer collection for a younger child. Absolutely beautifully made.

Our favourite!
