Leopard Jaq Floppy 17''
Leopards may be considered the epitome of stealth and silence...and our Hansa Jacquard Floppy Leopard fits this description. He is covered with luxurious custom jacquard plush making him unbelievably soft and cuddly. Beautifully placed spots and details on his face making him life like- this guy is an heirloom piece! 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).
Leopards are the smallest of the large cats (to include lions, tigers, and jaguars) and are the most widespread, with subspecies found in Africa and Asia. They have a body structure similar to jaguars and are covered with flower-shaped spots on their backs called rosettes, with no dot in the center; the jaguar has a dot inside each of its rosettes.
I wouldn't call the toy "Floppy". I thought it would have floppy legs and body, but it's just the pose that it's in. However, I still love it. It is so detailed and beautifully made! Another of my students' favourites!
