The Hungry Hippo accessory is a blast from the very recent past that’s sure to stir up some nostalgic feelings. I know I immediately started singing the Hasbro toy commercial’s infamous song the second I saw it ("If you wanna win the game, you’ve gotta take good aim/ And get the most marbles with your hippo/Playin’ Hungry Hungry Hippos/Hungry Hungry Hippos").

The pillbox-shaped headpiece, offered by Schmoo Bamboo, is made from bright pink sinamay and ornamented with a miniature hungry hippo and five colorful balls. The handcrafted hairpiece measures approximately 11 cm in length and is attached via a silver hair band. If the hippo embellishment isn’t enough drama for you, you can add a bird cage veil to your order.

This eye-catching piece is the perfect accessory for a summer wedding or a day at the races.
