The coolest hippo on the street obviously has a stretch limo, but this guy can't decide if he likes the banana yellow one with the built-in pool or the "purple haze" color with the disco dance floor. Pick the paint scheme for him, choose any of seven wheel styles, then adjust your stretch length and add a hood ornament and painted flames. You can also open and close the hippo's mouth or give him a sweet pair of shades. This paper model kit for readers 8 to 11 includes accessories like hood scoops and "smoke and flame" effects—just punch out the die-cut pieces and follow the step-by-step instructions (no glue or cutting required) and you're ready to roll.
