Hippomottie Rides A Pony

Sunday 2nd July 2017

After enjoying such a nice day in Space yesterday, Hippomottie decided that she’s like to play outside today and get some lovely fresh air.

So she called her friend Magda and asked is she would like to go for a ride with her on her pony.

Magda was very excited and off they both went for a lovely ride on Spottie, Hippomottie’s pony.

Hippomottie, Spottie and Magda were gone nearly all day. It was almost dark by the time they arrived home. She thanked Spottie for a lovely ride and thanked Magda for coming with her.

Hippomottie was exhausted and wanted to lie down in the straw next to Spottie. She was so tired that she couldn’t even walk and had to be carried all the way home.

What a fantastic day she thought as her eyes started to close and she was already dreaming of her next adventure as she fell asleep…

Hippomottie Has An Interesting Encounter With An Alien Being

Saturday 1st July 2017

With our Kickstarter campaign flying high due to a mysterious anonymous backer during our first week, Hippomottie decided it was time for a trip into Space once more.

Hippomottie fueled up her rocket, and off she went roaring into the sky. Eventually she reached a new and strange planet.

As she stepped out of her rocket, she was greeted by a very strange creature.

“Hello my friend!” said Hippomottie. “My name is Hippomottie and I’m from planet Earth. I come on peace.”

The alien invited Hippomottie to sit down and they drank a strange kind of tea together.

​The alien showed Hippomottie lots of pictures of his plant and told her stories about his life.

The alien was fascinated by Hippomottie’s fancy Space suit. He played with the zips, clips, laces, buttons and buckles. “I wish I had fancy clothes like yours Hippomottie.” said the alien.

“Oh but your outfit is lovely!” exclaimed Hippomottie. “It’s so smith and shiny and bright and clean!”

It’s so funny that we both like each others clothes, thought Hippomottie, but it’s nice to be different and stand out from the crowd.

When Hippomottie went home she wondered was it this kindly alien that was fascinated with her clothes that had mysteriously backed the project on Kickstarter?

Maybe she would never find out, but as she drifted off to sleep Hippomottie said a big thank you to the mystery backer who she decided to name Stigomottie. Good night.

Iron Chef Hippomottie!

Thursday 29th June 2017

Today Hippomottie is on the French Island of Corsica. Hippomottie loves to visit different places to meet new people and try different food.

In France they sell bread in a big long stick called a baguette! Hippomottie loves baguettes and always buys one from the shops when she is in France.

20170605_124322

Because the sun is shining today, Hippomottie has decided to cook outside on her barbecue and has invited some friends to share her food with her.

20170610_183318-1

Hippomottie eats lots of different kinds of food, but she especially likes vegetables. Vegetables are very good for you and Hippomottie knows that it’s important to grow big and strong if you want to fly into space, so she always has an extra helping of peas and carrots with her meal.

Let Hippomottie know which vegetables are your favourite!

Hippomottie Meets A Pirate

Friday 30th June 2017

With exactly 1 week gone already in our 4 week Kickstarter campaign, I’d like to thank those that have already ordered their very own Hippomotties.

For those of you still yet to order, I’d urge you to do it quickly as our “Early Bird Specials“, offering a generous discount to the first 40 orders, are selling out fast. And don’t forget to spread the love and pass on the news about Hippomottie to all your friends, families and enemies, so that they can order one too. Thank you and over to Hippomottie…

Hippomottie has a very exciting life. When she’s not exploring in Space, she lives on a ship on Earth and travels the world. This means that she meets lots of different people.

Today she met a Pirate! Pirates also live on a boat similar to Hippomottie’s ship.

20170602_125846[1]

It’s very exciting to meet new people, because Hippomottie gets to ask lots of questions about their lives.

People from around the world have some things in common and some things are different.

For example some people speak a different language. And some people eat different food.

One of the Pirates that she met was called Long John Silver. He had one real leg, and one leg made of wood, which means that he lives in a chair with wheels to move about the place.

20170602_140533[1]

He let Hippomottie have a go in his wheelchair, which Hippomottie thought was very fun! Long John Silver can move about very fast in his wheelchair, but cannot use the stairs, so has to wait to use the elevator to go up or downstairs.

It’s really fun to experience how different people live their lives and Hippomottie always remembers to be polite and respect the differences that make everybody unique. That’s what makes the world such a fun and interesting place!

Unlike yesterday when it was raining, today it is very, very hot. The yellow sun is shining and the sky is blue.

20170531_124652[1]

Hippomottie knows that the sun is very powerful, so is being careful and taking a rest in the shade.

20170531_124911[1]

And taking cover beneath a tree to try and stay cool.

20170531_123524[1]

It’s nice to have fun in the sun, but you must always remember to stay safe and wear sun screen and sun glasses to protect your body.

Have a good day everybody and stay cool!

Just What Is Snake?

Tuesday 27th June 2017

I need to start today’s post with an editorial apology. After receiving an email from my somewhat irate mother, I must correct my words from the other day and inform the world that she does now own a smart phone.

It’s a Sony to be precise, and she’s been in possession of it for the last 6 months. I hadn’t the heart to ask what became of the Nokia. Hopefully it’s found its rightful place in a museum or something. Oh and she also asked what the hell “Snake” is! 17 years with an old style Nokia and she doesn’t know what snake is. At least I was correct then when I said that it wasn’t Rocket Science to order your Hippomottie on Kickstarter!!

Enough digs at the mothership and over to Hippomottie for her update of the day…

Today it was raining outside, so Hippomottie decided to play some games inside. She loves to play games with her friends, especially when she wins, but she also knows that the taking part is just as important as winning.

First she played Connect 4.

And then everybody’s favorite Guess Who!

Even though it can sometimes be tempting, Hippomottie never cheats. She always plays fair and remembers to congratulate her opponents even when they beat her. That’s why Hippomottie is never short of friends to play games with.

Now she has to go and finish her game of monopoly. She’s got all the train stations and the electric company too! Wish her luck!!!

It’s Not Rocket Science…!

Sunday 25th June 2017

We’ve had a lot of interest in people wanting our Hippomotties on Kickstarter so far, but it seems that a lot of you are still unsure/afraid of how Kickstarter works. It’s actually very simple and straight-forward to use, much the same as Amazon etc. Only it won’t be next day delivery, as it will take some time for us to produce the toys, perfect them and then send them out to you. But… we can promise that they will be worth the wait!

Here’s a very simple how to:

0-02-01-430f8cb0560e5dc22b2511aab869238b143c17a4ee36f6027a18fb70cc383b3c_full

And here’s how much the Toys cost…

Don’t forget to sign up early as we are offering a discount on the first 40 sold.

It’s so easy that even my mother who only has an old Nokia Mobile phone that plays snake managed to master it! You see I told you it’s not rocket science!!

Plus you don’t even have to wait until Pay Day to sign up, as no cards will be charged until 23rd July, when our sales campaign ends. It just gets better and better…

But if you still need a reason to buy your own one, just think about this… IT”S EXACTLY 6 MONTHS UNTIL CHRISTMAS TODAY!!! So get ahead of the game, order yours today and it will be one less thing to do in the mad pre Christmas rush. Hippomotties make GREAT PRESENTS so think about how much your kids, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, godchildren, etc will love to open one on Christmas Day. Shop now from the comfort of you chair/train seat/toilet!

Anyway, enough sales pitch for today, it’s over to Hippomottie for the rest of the post:

When she’s not floating about on her boat, Hippomottie LOVES to go to the park. Here she can find children to play with.

20170531_115013[1]

She loves to make new friends and she always remembers that it’s very important to share the toys and take turns on the slides, so that everybody can gets a chance to have some fun.

20170531_114924[1]

But even when she’s having fun in the sun, it’s important never to wander off to far, and always keep her parents in her sights. Plus she knows that she must never talk to strangers.

20170531_114819[1]

When Hippomottie follows these simple rules, she knows that she will have a great day out and that Mum and Dad will be happy too. Which means that she can go to the park again next weekend! Yippee!!!
