Cuddly Hippo

Condition: New
More Information
Pink Cuddly hippo with LC on the paw.  Please note that for safety reasons, the eyes are no longer black plastic ones, but stitched wool ones (pale grey, pale pink or white). Ideal as a gift for a young child, it is not only a favourite soft toy of many a youngster, but the first choice of anyone wanting a momento of their visit to the club. It measures approx :24 cm x 14 cm x 15 cm.  It is soft all over with beans in the legs which enables it to stand up or sit up!   The ribbon shown in the image is not included.  

The hippopotamus is Leander's emblem, known in Africa as "King of the River", the only animal equally at home on land and water.  It's colour is pink (officially cerise), as is Leander's club tie. Only members with distinguished service to rowing are permitted to wear the coveted pink livery. Leander was a figure in Greek mythology and the lover of Hero, virgin priestess of Aphrodite.  Their love story was told by English poet and dramatist Christoper Marlowe in his poem "Hero and Leander" (1598).
