Sticky Hippo is a fun tape dispenser for primary school students. It has been designed to be safe for kids. The tape is also fully enclosed for use with a pencil case or back pack. Sticky hippo is made from just two polypropylene injection moulded parts, possible with the use of an integral hinge. A small locator on the inside wall of the body keeps hinged panel in place and the head and the body are easily assembled via two locating pins in head. The shape of mouth allows tape to be easily pulled forward and cut on hippo teeth and the head covers the teeth when in closed position.
