Helium the Hippo

The 2021 Helium the Hippo Amigurumi Crochet Along Pattern


A magical hippo

Helium is precisely who you’d expect him to be: the bouncing baby hippo who fills your balloons at birthday parties! Being a magical hippo who can blow up balloons that float, Helium is very popular among his friends and always gets invited to special events. This suits him just fine because Helium loves to eat cake and parties are, of course, the best place to find cake.

This hippo is a detailed amigurumi with interesting features such as an open mouth with a tongue and teeth, individual toes, nostrils and realistic eyes. Weighing in at nearly 700 g, Helium is a large amigurumi who is physically about the size of a real baby pygmy hippopotamus!
