Default Chomping Hippo Toy! Pics and Vid!

After the success with the waddling duck:

I decided to give the hippo a try from the same book. I think I like him more than the duck!

Here are some final pics:






Here's a video of him chomping away:

Like the duck he's made entirely of poplar expect for his oak eyes and tusks. The body and head are a glue up of two pieces of 3/4" wood which makes for some cool book matched grain. He's finished with a few coats on mineral oil to keep him kid safe. I need to make one for myself! These toys are very fun! Next is the leaping frog from the same book.

Here are a few pics of how he went together:

Neat Toy Nick good job

But I don't see the string to pull it around .....but then, it would be a great push toy for the drag race with the duck
