Giraffe Plush from HANSA, 43.5 Inches (Rideable)
This wonderfully realistic plush Giraffe measures approximately 30 inches long, 9 inches wide, and 43 inches high, and has a hang tag that contains info about where they live, how they raise their young, what they eat, their habitat, and history. A lightweight, but strong steel frame makes this animal "rideable" by children and adults. Artisan hand sew the animals "inside out", an old world tradition that results in the mininization of seams, and their bodies are carefully "sculpted" to create "musculature" and "features" like movement in a walking or sitting position that are unique to each creature. On average, there are 42 separate pieces required to make each animal, that must be combined by a team of truly creative artists to create the distinctly realistic features that characterize HANSA animals. (Some animals have as many as 240 different parts!) Each animal is individually hand sewn, to give it a unique "personality", there are more than 860 different fabrics and man-made furs from which the "coat" and "hides" are made, along with over 6000 sets of different eyes, whiskers, claws, noses, and related accessories allocated for creating these wonderful plush animals. Stuffing emphasizes careful attention to the placement of the highest quality man-made materials. When you hold these wonderfully "life-like" animals, you will see and feel HANSA's emphasis on quality, which is a result of careful attention to design, custom fabric selection, cutting, sewing, stuffing, eye placement, feature creation, framing, air brushing and finishing. Since each animal is hand sewn, there will be slight variations in appearance. This item ships directly from HANSA and is usually in stock. Out of stock items may take 90 to 120 days to create since this is a large, handmade plush animal. Shipping within 48 states only (Sorry, no shipments to Hawaii, Alaska, or outside the USA).
