Microwaveable Lavender Stuffed Hippo

Wow! I have to say–in a totally unscientific way and without actually counting anything or researching this in any way–that the Microwaveable Lavender Stuffed Hippo is by far the most popular item in my store. These puppies just fly out the door and into the waiting arms of happy hippopotamaniacs everywhere.

I can totally understand why these are so popular. They are cute, soft, and cuddly, and you can stick them in the microwave for a minute and they come out warm and fragrant. I took Hippo Mojo on the road last week to a vendor fair and every time someone passed by my booth, I stuck one of these little guys into their arms. Every single person loved them! Except for one old curmudgeon who didn’t like the smell of lavender. Oh dear, can’t please everyone.

Still, these hippos make a wonderful gift item. Give one to your old grandmother who always has cold feet. She can warm it up in the microwave and take it to bed with her. What? She doesn’t own such a newfangled contraption? Well, buy her one of those, too! I mean, don’t you love your grandmother? Get to it, people!
