Hedgehog Wheelybugs help save hedgehogs this Christmas

Buy a Hedgehog Wheelybug from Hippychick for your toddler this Christmas and you’ll be doing your bit to help preserve the dwindling Hedgehog population of Great Britain.

For every Hedgehog Wheelybug sold, Hippychick will donate 20% of the proceeds to the British Hedgehog Preservation Society. 
The British Hedgehog Preservation Society (BHPS) is a registered UK Charity dedicated to helping & protecting hedgehogs native to the UK.  Founded in 1982 the Society has a number of celebrities amongst its patrons including Anne Widdecombe, Ben Fogle, Chris Beardshaw and Ken Dodd.  

Fay Vass, Chief Executive of the British Hedgehog Preservation Society is delighted to team up with Hippychick for Christmas.  "The British hedgehog population has suffered an alarming fall in numbers, the loss being comparable to that of the World's tiger population.  The BHPS is dedicated to encouraging everyone to respect and love our natural wildlife.  It’s never too early to begin fostering an interest in wildlife conservation.  Toddlers, the Wheelybug audience, are a perfect age to start the process." 

The Hedgehog Wheelybug is the latest addition to Hippychick’s wooden ride-on Wheelybug collection.  It boasts all the much loved characteristics of the original Wheelybug  - it goes backwards, forwards, round and round and can be pushed, pulled, kissed and cuddled, but in this instance features a soft, furry cover that can be removed and washed for practical purposes and can even be replaced with a Panda Cover to create a whole new Wheelybug character. 

Donations to the BHPS will apply between October 1st and Christmas Day 2015.

Hedgehog Wheelybugs (£64.95) are suitable for ages 1-3 years (19kgs) and are available from quality toy retailers as well as on-line from
