Started in 1972, Hansa Toys has become the premier brand when it comes to lifelike, plush animal toys. Massive amounts of research goes into the production of each animal. From being designed by a talented artist to being assembled by skilled workers, not machines. Each animal has on average 42 separate pieces required for assembly and many fabrics are custom-manufactured as well as hand-cut. Each animal comes equipped with a "teaching" tag, describing the animals habitat, location, history and more! Your child will revel in the fact that these plush animals look so similar to the real deal! Some of our favorites include the guinea pig and snuggly bear...Which animal does your little one love?
