Buni Kubu is the caring and loving mother of the Kubu stuffed hippo pod. Her children Kili, Wami, and Tali, try their best to tire her out, but she is always there to keep them safe and most importantly, not bothering the other animals in the river. All the little stuffed hippo calves of the river call Buni "Mama" because she cares and loves every hippo with all her stuffed hippo heart. Buni is the second biggest member of the Kubu family. She stands at 3 1/2 feet and sits down at just under 2 1/2 feet. She is a pleasantly plump plush hippo that fits nicely into any room.
