Meet Mercurius the Mippo, he’s a hippo soft doll for kids! Mercurius is wearing a pilot outfit with his nickname “bird man” embroidered on it. Do you know why he’s called bird man? Because he just loves birds! As a kid he was always fascinated by their ability to fly, so what’s the next best thing? To become a pilot! And this stuffed animal doll is not just a perfect gift for a girl, but boys will love him too.
Besides a three-piece pilot doll outfit, Mercurius also has his own doll passport! It already tells you he was born on April 7th in the little town of Mill in Mippoland. His hobby is, of course, flying! But what is his favourite food? Or his favourite song? That’s for your child to disocover together with Mercurius! Our Mippo dolls help your child grown socially and emotionally through imaginative play. Dressing and undressing Mercurius provides fine motor skill practice. And our soft dolls provide comfort – he is the perfect size for cuddling (kids can fit their chin right between his chubby head and shoulders).
Unique hippo soft doll outfit
Mercurius is wearing a brown jacket, with a (fake)fur collar, green plaid trousers and a cool pilot’s hat. The jacket has two pockets at the front and closes with a real zipper. Its sleeves and backside of the jacket have been detailed with functional buttons, which makes it look like a real-life grown-up jacket! The collar is made from fake fur and makes sure Mercurius doesn’t go cold during his flying hours. His green plaid trousers fit snugly around his chubby body thanks to an elastic band. The little pilot hat fits perfectly over his ears. Mercurius and his outfit encourage fun pretend play!
Size and materials
Mercurius is a hippo soft doll and he is 17″ high and measures 16″ wide (43 x 40 cm). We handmade Mercurius of 100% cotton fabrics and filled him with polyester fiberfill. We finish all clothing seams with a serger, guaranteeing high quality seams which will not fray. Both the hippo plush and his clothes are machine-washable when using a delicates program. Due to the buttons on the outfit, he is not suitable for kids younger than 3 years old.
