Emperor penguins start as little grey fluff-balls. The plush penguin chick is 6 inches tall. Hansa make both this recently-hatched size chick and a somewhat older and rounder chick. A chick looks especially good when paired with an adult emperor penguin.

The emperors nest in incredibly inhospitable conditions, as shown in the recent March of the Penguins documentary. For a long time after the species was known, noone had ever seen an emporer penguin chick. One of the goals of Scott's ill-fated Antarctic expedition was to bring back an emporer penguin egg, as described in Cherry-Garrard's amazing book The Worst Journey in the World

Penguins have long been popular characters, at least since Walter Lantz's "Chilly Willy". For some reason, Chilly Willy lived in the Arctic with polar bears as unwelcome neighbors. Fortunately the recent Happy Feet movie located penguins at the correct end of the earth.

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.
