If you love unusual animals, this one is for you! The Hansa Bilby stuffed animal stands 12 inches tall and is so life like with his long nose, long ears and cute tail! Significant research goes into reproducing every animal species. The fabric for the spotted and striped plush stuffed animals is custom designed and exclusively manufactured in small quantities to Hansa’s exacting specifications. Their “coats” are meticulously hand-cut and trimmed, never stamped out by machine. Hand sewn leather paws, swishing tails and especially soulful eyes and faces are lovingly detailed to give each stuffed animal its lifelike look. Each and every animal produced is hand finished by Hansa’s artists to create each with their very own unique personality (just as in real life).
A bilby is a shy, nocturnal marsupial, unique to Australia. It has a grey and white silky coat, long, sensitive ears and a pink pointed nose. It has claws and strong forelimbs that enable it to dig rapidly in the desert soil. It is about the size ofa cat, with the male growing up to half a metre in length from tip to tail, and weighing around one to two and a half kilos (just under six pounds).
I love this guy. I had never seen one before. He is very cuddly and really cute.
never having seen a real bilby, cant say how realistic this one is but can say its the cutest critter ever - so soft and the perfect size for hugging!
I was very excited to find a stuffed bilby - not your usual plush! - and it did not disappoint. The usual Hansa quality is in evidence in every detail. A truly unique addition to my collection.
