This beast was my first venture into the absurd with my toys. Once again, Cherry of course. The dowels inside the wheels lift the claws one at a time and make a nice (infuriating for parents) clacking sound. I’ve redesigned this one since the original and it’s on my website and in my upcoming book (this August!).

Love it! Absolutely delightful! I can see the little darlings entertaining their parents to total distraction. LOL. Thanks for sharing.

Even cooler than the hippo. The clacking noise is a real plus!
