He was really excited when we first brought it out and he stamped his feet and squealed in delight while we opened it.
Once the hippo was open it was a different story...
Chase was terrified of it and was shouting "No! No! No!" - below is a picture of him trying to crawl into my lap to escape the hippo.
After a few minutes of terror he finally adjusted to the hippo and was willing to give it hugs and pats but would NOT sit on it.
