Hansa were founded in 1972 and have become known and loved for their realistic and cuddly plush animals. From 4 inches to 4 metres in size, every animal is carefully researched and designed to be a lifelike representation of the creature. The accuracy of the plush toys has made Hansa the supplier of many zoos, wildlife parks and media events.
Every Hansa animal, regardless of size and price, is hand-trimmed, giving a natural look that a machine could not reproduce. To encourage children and adults to educate themselves about the animal's habitat and lifestyle each animal comes complete with a 'Toys that Teach' tag that gives the new owner a real affinity with the animal - more than simply as a toy.
