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 integrated hinge. A small locator on the inside wall of the body keeps the hinged panel in place and the head is easily assembled to the body using two locating pins. The shape of mouth allows the tape to be easily pulled forward and cut on Sticky Hippo's teeth and when closed, the head covers the teeth for safe storage.
