What puzzles me, is why in the world nobody ever seems to have made a PYGMY HIPPOPOTAMUS? Why always making the River Hippo? That is really weird. Especially with companies who claim being specialized in animal replicas...

I also agree, it would be 'cuter' to children and cheaper to produce whil extending their line and its educaional benefit, I know they play it safe, but this is too safe! A pygmy hippo would sell well in my opinion, you have a parent and the child wants a hippo figure, what are you going to go for, big hippo 5.99 or smaller and probably cheaper pygmy hippo?

It was a joke meaning that the size mentionned was just the size of the BODY; knowing that the toy had a long neck and a long tail, it meant that the taoy was even bigger than mentionned.
