Self-walking Hippo blue (Moomintroll) (ramp walker)
No Batteries No Winding Up !!!
Amazing self walking Hippo blue (MOOMINTROLL) can easily walk when placed on any smooth surface having a slight inclination and given a sideways push. After you push the hippo gently on the side it will start swinging from left to the right and then will walk towards the end of the surface. Due to the unique know-how our hippo - Moomintroll can walk both ways forward and backward depending on how you place them on the surface.
Our hippo doesn’t need any batteries or winding up since only the natural force of gravity is used to make them walk. Once the hippo starts wobbling, it can pick up the momentum and starts moving as long as your surface is not perfectly even. You need the angle of about 2-5 degrees, no more.
Blue HIPPO - Moomontroll was the original creation of Finnish writer and comic books illustrator Tove Hansson (of Swedish descent). Later on Hippo - Moomintroll was featured in a very popular Japanese animation series and Polish cartoon series.
