The flying fox plush has a body length of 11 inches and a wingspan of 27 inches. This plush bat is suspended from a metal ring by an elastic strap and a couple of monofilament lines so he can be displayed in flight position. The wings have a stiff liner to keep their shape; the body is soft plush.

Flying foxes are the largest bats. There are several species of various sizes in genus Pteropus, all called "flying foxes" or "fruit bats". The largest flying foxes have a wingspan of up to 6 feet! They are not nocturnal and don't have echolocation like other bats. They roost in trees, where they hang upside - down to sleep in expected bat fashion. Fruit bats do indeed eat fruit, as their name implies, as well as flowers and nectar.

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.
