These officially licensed RALLY brand products were made in partnership with the Cincinnati Zoo and Fiona the Hippo.
When Fiona was born, no one expected her to survive. Bibi, her mother, gave birth six weeks early, and the baby only weighed 29 pounds. Most hippos weigh between 55 and 120 pounds at birth; premature babies rarely pull through. Fiona received round-the-clock care that included nurses from Cincinnati Children's Hospital who located her tiny veins for an IV during a scary time of dehydration. Scientists at the zoo milked a hippo for the first time, having no idea what was in hippo's milk, they were able to recreate the formula for Fiona's bottles.
Everything was documented through social media, and overnight, Fiona became a world-wide sensation. A symbol of resilience and positivity, Fiona has been called sassy and classy social media sensation that has united us all. If Fiona's story has won you over like it has for Cincinnatians and others across the world, celebrate with the Cincinnati Queen Fiona t-shirt and #TeamFiona!
