About this project

"That is so adorable and cute and cutely adorable!"

That's what everyone will say when they see this adorable baby hippo on your shirt! Whether you want to be the envy of your friends or simply cause a distraction for your own nefarious purposes*, this hypnotically cute hippo will do the trick. Just look at those big, loving, 100% cotton eyes. How could anyone suspect it of wrong-doing?

*Adorable Baby Hippo does not endorse having its powers of cuteness used for evil, even though you totally could. Shame on you.

How can I obtain this shirt?

All you have to do is pledge at least $12 by clicking the option on the right side of your screen. $12 will get you a Unisex tee in any size, youth or adult. For a Ladies tee, please select $14. You are pre-ordering this shirt by your pledge, however, you will only be charged if enough orders are made to print the shirts. If enough money is not raised, you will not have to pay anything. 

What else will I receive?

Hippos aren't your thing? Anyone who pledges at least $5 will receive even more potentially nefarious cuteness, in the form of a hand-drawn sketch of a cute baby animal of your choosing! Additionally, if you pledge $25 or more, you will not only receive two hippo shirts (keep one and gift the other, gift them both, or keep them both for yourself!), but you will also get to choose an animal to be depicted in my next shirt designs! Each of your two shirts will be in any size and style you like.

What exactly is this project funding?

First and foremost, it will be paying the initial costs of having a bulk order of these adorable shirts printed and shipped to backers of this project. Additionally, if enough shirts are sold, this project will help me launch a new website selling more cute and adorable shirt designs.

Can you tell me more about the shirts?

Certainly! These shirts will be:

  • 100% pre-shrunk Cotton
  • Screen-printed
  • Available as either a Unisex ($12) or Ladies ($14) tee
  • Available in either adult (S-3XL) or youth (XS - XL) sizes

(This image is a digital preview, the actual shirts may differ slightly in appearance)

Please help spread the word!

Thank you, everybody!


  • A Unisex shirt will comfortably fit both men and women. Many women prefer to wear Ladies shirts (sometimes referred to as "Babydoll" shirts) which are shaped to better fit the contours of the female form.

  • You certainly may! However, I can only offer free shipping to US addresses. Send me a message before you pledge your order to tell me which country you're in and I'll calculate the international shipping cost.

    Last updated:
  • I have confirmed that the shirts WILL be available in youth sizes XS to XL.

    Last updated:
  • Due to the higher cost of women's shirts from my supplier, I would have to ask for $14 instead of $12. However, if this interests you, I would be more than happy to provide one. Simply add an additional $2 to your pledge and you will be able to choose a Ladies shirt when the orders are filled.
