There is a great Leonarado da Vinci exhibition happening in Venice, the best part is that you get to play with all of the machines!
The da Vinci exhibition is being held in a church in Venice.
This device shows how ball barrings can be used to move Tiny Hippos around with great ease.
This auto-locking wheel must have been used to lift very heavy cakes.
Leonard da Vinci must have used this machine to crack open nuts when he was feeling peckish.
I am afraid he may have made this flying machine a bit too small for Tiny Hippos to use.
This glider looks more suited to my kind, I knew old da Vinci wouldn’t let me down!
I just don’t know about this one, the sign says it is a dredger, but it looks more like a cranberry thief.
After all the excitement of touring so many da Vinci creations I need to unwind for a bit. See you next time!
Master of my domain!
I use my surroundings to make everything I need, even a winter home
Each block of snow is placed carefully to create the perfect igloo
The delicate work of placing the last blocks does not daunt the mighty Snow Hippo
Candy canes were added for delicious structural support
A job well done, bask in my brilliance!

I am preparing for my trip to New York
I have my map, camera, scarf (so I don’t take a chill), and grapes. What more could a Tiny Hippo need for a trip to the Big Apple?
I have transformed into the most ghastly of beasts; can you even recognize me in this dastardly form?
My huge ears pick up the smallest of crinkly noises
My silent wings glide through the night air
Sometimes at terrifying speeds
I am a master hunter, known to all as the Deadly Candy Bat
I prowl the neighborhood for unattended sweets
The candy never had a chance. Truly, I am a monster!
