Handsome seated puma plush figure is 12 inches tall. Coat and facial markings on this plush cougar are really nice, and the body shape is excellent.

Even though hunting and habitat destruction has so much reduced their numbers, puma still range over much of North and South America. Partly because they are native to so many places, this cat has a lot of names -- more than 40 just in English. Puma, cougar, catamount, mountain lion, Florida panther, they're all the same animal. Despite their size they don't roar or growl like big cats. They vocalize like domestic cats, including purring.

Puma were hunted almost to extinction in North America, but are making a bit of a comeback after changes to wildlife management practices. A 1924 guide to Yellowstone Park assures visitors that the bears, elk and other wonderful animals are protected from hunting, but the rangers hope to kill off all those destructive cougars and wolves soon.

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.
