CollectA - Hugo Hippopotamus Calf
Fun fact: Their skin secretes a natural sunscreen substance which is red-colored. The secretion is sometimes referred to as "blood sweat", but is neither blood nor sweat. This secretion is initially colorless and turns red-orange within minutes, eventually becoming brown.

CollectA’s mission is to build “a natural world in miniature" for collectors.
CollectA has been producing true to life miniature animals and dinosaurs for over 13 years. They are one of the largest makers of toy animal figurines worldwide.
All of their products have been individually handcrafted to the highest standards in design, sculpture, painting and most importantly, manufacture.
All CollectA animals have been tested to ensure they meet the highest of safety standards.
Why do we love CollectA?
We love CollectA as these miniatures can be used in creative, open-ended and small world play.
They are a brilliant tool and resource for early learning educators as well for homeschooling, preschools and playrooms.
We love that they help to bring awareness to endangered species and highlight the need to our little ones, about the importance of protecting our environment for our animal kingdom.
We also LOVE that they have the BIGGEST collection of dinosaurs and prehistoric animals of any toy manufacturer!

Collect A Animals
What beautiful animals well made and a great size for little hands. I recently bought a collection of Collect A animals and made a zoo as a fabulous way to introduce my little grandsons to animals found throughout the world. Easy online shopping and excellent service.
