Hansa’s “Portrait in Nature” is a hand-crafted collection of realistic plush animals. Each piece is designed with a unique personality by artists from portraits of animals in their natural habitat. Hansa animals appeal to collectors and animal lovers of all ages. The life-sized pieces have exceptionally strong, yet lightweight, structurally metal frames and can even be “ridden” by children and adults (up to 250 lbs). Each piece comes with a “Toys that Teach” tag describing in detail, the animal’s habitat, lifestyle, gestation period, care of young and eating habits.
