Hungry Hungry Hippo


A Danish friend who conducts African safaris once told me that hippos are “mean bastards.”

Well, you’d never know it by looking at the cheery Modern Basics Big Boo Hippo Throw Blanket ($40). I just discovered the unbelievably cool site of Design Public, a small team that creates the coolest in home furnishings and accessories for babies, kids, adults, and critters.

The hippo blanket is available in blue, brown, green or pink; the fleece throw measures 40 x 30 inches.
