The Hansa Story (told by Hansa):
Artisan hand sew the animals "inside out", an old world tradition that results in the mininization of seams, and their bodies are carefully "sculpted" to create "musculature" and "features" like movement in a walking or sitting position that are unique to each creature. On average, there are 42 separate pieces required to make each animal, that must be combined by a team of truly creative artists to create the distinctly realistic features that characterize HANSA animals. (Some animals have as many as 240 different parts!) Each animal is individually hand sewn, to give it a unique "personality", there are more than 860 different fabrics and man-made furs from which the "coat" and "hides" are made, along with over 6000 sets of different eyes, whiskers, claws, noses, and related accessories allocated for creating these wonderful plush animals. Stuffing emphasizes careful attention to the placement of the highest quality man-made materials.
When you hold these wonderfully "life-like" animals, you will see and feel HANSA's emphasis on quality, which is a result of careful attention to design, custom fabric selection, cutting, sewing, stuffing, eye placement, feature creation, framing, air brushing and finishing. Since each animal is hand sewn, there will be slight variations in appearance.
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?
