Life-size koala plush sits 18 inches tall. Koalas are hefty animals, so this adult stuffed toy is very robust in shape. We have a very cute plush koala joey, too. Real koalas have very coarse, stiff fur, but the plush koalas are wonderfully soft and cuddly.

The koala is sometimes called a "koala bear", but they are not bears. They are marsupials found only in Australia, like kangaroos and wombats. They exist almost completely on eucalyptus leaves, which are a very low-quality foodstuff. Eucalyptus leaves are largely indegistible and have toxic phenolic and terpene compounds. So koalas spend most of every day snoozing for twenty hours while their liver works on the toxins they just ate and their digestion tries to extract all possible nutrition from the leaf pulp. For their four waking hours koala mostly chew lots of leaves so they have plenty of leaf pulp to digest.

Despite their rotund form koalas are very well adapted for their arboreal lifestyle. Their front paws have two thumbs, and large claws, so they can get a great grip on branches. Their back paws also have an opposable thumb (though just one per paw). While sleeping, which is most of the time, koala wedge their round rear end into the fork of a branch and curl up nearly spherical.

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.
