CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

An Over-the-Rhine based company released a Christmas sweatshirt to commemorate the preemie hippo that everyone has grown to know and love.

Cincy Shirts made the 'I want a hippopotamus for Christmas' sweater just in time for the holiday season. Since the odds of Santa really bringing us a hippo are seemingly very low - this may just do the trick. 

The Fiona Christmas sweaters are $35 and available online or in all of Cincy Shirts retail stores.

A portion of the proceeds benefit the Cincinnati Zoo.

Fiona is the first Nile hippo born at the zoo in 75 years. She was born Jan. 24 at 29 pounds, well below the usual weight, but has made amazing strides since.
