Big unruly mane, lazy relaxed posture, arrogant expression: must be a male lion. This plush lion is 22 inches from nose to rump and 11 inches tall -- if you comb down his mane.

We have quite a few lion plush from Hansa, but this one is the only adult male. The others tend to be smaller, and perhaps cuter, but they don't get the same respect. Use the Search box for 'feline' to see all our big cat figures.

When you see lions in a zoo, they're pretty much always asleep. But they breed prolifically in captivity -- they're not depressed. Even in the wild, lions sleep about 20 hours a day. If you want to see zoo lions awake, check on the feeding schedule. They wake up for their priority events. I've read that the big cats sleep so much as an energy-saving strategy. Big mammalian predators can only catch so much food, and can't afford wasting energy between meals. It sounds like a very sensible explanation, but our house-cats sleep about 18 hours a day and they're neither large predators nor short on food.

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.
