This mongoose is a life-sized plush version of a Malagasy Ring-tailed Mongoose. The head and body are about 15 inches long and so is the fluffy ringed tail.

When we first saw the big fluffy banded tail on this plush, we were confused, as we were expecting a more familiar Indian mongoose like Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. This ring-tailed mongoose from Madagascar is much showier than the Indian mongoose, and makes an interesting plush toy. There are about thirty varieties of Mongoose, including meerkats. While it is nominally a mongoose, the ring-tailed mongoose is actually more closely related to the fossa.

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.
