Animal Facts:
Family Hippopotamidae. Mammals found in Africa. Up to 45% of all the hippos die in their first year. A hippo's jaw can open up to 150 degrees. It reaches a length of 2.9-5 m and weighs 1,000 to 4,500 kg. Hippopotamuss is semi-aquatic, spending most of the day with only their eyes, ears & nostrils above the surface of a river. During the day, it feeds on aquatic vegetation.

The Hansa Story
Artisans hand sew the animals "inside out", an old-world tradition that results in the minimisation 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 a team of truly creative artists must combine 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.
