The small plush Barbary macaque sits 6 inches high. He has a wonderful solemn expression and beautifully detailed face and feet. We also have a larger Barbary macaque.

The Barbary macaque is commonly called a "Barbary ape", but they are monkeys not apes. Since they have no tails there is some reason for the confusion. Barbary macaques are native to North Africa, living mainly in the Atlas mountains, and their range used to include southern Europe. There is still a well-known troupe of Barbary apes in Gibraltar, carefully maintained by the British during their occupation.

Hansa label this plush toy a "Salem Monkey", apparently because Affenberg (Ape Mountain) in Salem, Germany, is a famous wildlife park with about 200 Barbary macaques. The monkeys live in a forest area and visitors roam on footpaths. Macaques bred in Affenberg Salem have been used for reintroduction programs in North Africa.

Hansa produce an assortment of quality plush animal figures designed to capture each animal's beauty and character. Hansa use high-quality synthetic plush, often custom produced for their specific requirements of color, pattern and texture. The Hansa designers use complex cutting patterns with as many different plush variations as needed to get the right appearance for their animals. The fabrics are hand-cut to match each animal's design. Eyes, noses and paws are individually sewn to give each animal its realistic and individual appearance. Many of the animals get air-brushed accents to highlight body or facial details. Then the animals are hand-stuffed creating the unique poses and looks that are distinctively Hansa.

Hansa also make a series of life-size large animal plush which include a structural metal frame that is light-weight but capable of being "ridden" by children and even adults up to 250 pounds in weight. Stuffe & Nonsense cannot stock the large animals, but you can check their full collection at the Hansa Toys USA web site. If you see something interesting there, contact us and we can get it for you.
