What is The Hippolotofus?
We are a fun loving group of hippo lovers & collectors from around the world. We meet in a mailing list, online at YahooGroups, and have over 1100 members (as of January 2011). We came together because of our common interest in hippos. As we have grown, our activities have expanded to include an annual Reunion/Convention, numerous regional get-togethers, the Hippo Holiday Exchange, hippo projects (such as T-shirts) and more.
Who are The Hippolotofus?
There are over 1100 of us. We range in age from 5 to 95. We live in all parts of the globe, and speak many languages. You must speak some English to participate in our list, but English is not the native language for many of our members. Some have been collecting for years, and have thousands of hippos. Others may have just started, and only have a few. We are legal assistants, work-at-home moms, business people, students, retired people, engineers...we are hippo lovers!
