Product detail: There’s lots to love about our cute and chubby Sammi hippo. This big-hearted playtime friend measures 24 centimeters (9 inches) long. His grey coat is a cuddly soft plush fabric that encourages continuous petting. Sammi's nostrils, mouth, and the corners of the eyes are skillfully hand airbrushed by Steiff’s talented artisans. His inner ears and soles are a light shade of pink. He’s softly stuffed and loves to be squeezed. Sammi makes a precious little gift for any occasion. Like all Steiff creations, Gibsi is individually handcrafted by highly skilled artisans and wears the famous “Button in Ear” trademark.
