This little plush mammoth is 9 inches tall and about 13 inches long. Since he has such an impressively shaggy coat he must be a Woolly Mammoth or Tundra Mammoth. Not all mammoths lived in the frozen North, but the mammoths that did best in the Ice Age were those with plenty of warm woolly hair. The discovery of whole mammoth frozen into glaciers or tundra solidified (as it were) the image of hairy mammoths.

"Small Mammoth"? An oxymoron rather like "jumbo shrimp", isn't it? We also have a larger plush mammoth. Cartoonist Phil Foglio occasionally populates his backgrounds with "mimmoths" that look just like this plush mammoth, but Phil says mimmoths are even smaller. At 9 inches tall the small mammoth might be a giant bull mimmoth.

Mammoths are among the charismatic extinct Pleistocene mammals along with smilodon (saber-tooth tiger) and giant ground sloth. The Page Museum at La Brea tar pits has great displays and information about all the Pleistocene mega-fauna.

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.
