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.
