CINCINNATI - There’s nothing ugly about this Christmas sweater.
The Cincinnati shirt store Cincy Shirts unveiled a design of a new sweater featuring Cincinnati Zoo’s own baby hippo Fiona in front of a background of Cincinnati landmarks, according to a report from WCPO.
The faux-cross stitch design includes the phrase “I want a hippopotamus for Christmas,” a nod to the cult-classic Christmas song of the same name.
The red sweater sells for $35 in sizes small-3x.
A portion of proceeds from sales will go to the Cincinnati Zoo and Team Fiona fund, according to the Cincy Shirts website.
The sweater is the latest in a Fiona-themed line of shirts and other items from the store, such as a car magnet, Halloween shirt and statement tees, including one with Fiona’s mother and father
