From the Safari Collection:
This Large Standing Bengal Tiger by Hansa is a hand-crafted realistic plush animal from the Hansa Safari Collection. Created by artists in a socially responsible environment, from portraits of animals in their natural habitat, this Hansa animal has its own unique personality and is truly a soft sculpture "work of art." As with all Hansa plush products, the "coat" is meticulously cut by hand, never stamped out by machine. The fabric for all the Hansa spotted and striped animals is custom designed and exclusively manufactured in small quantities to Hansa's exacting specifications. Gentle paws, swishing tails, and especially soulful eyes and face are lovingly detailed to create the life-like look that is unmistakably Hansa. This magnificent Hansa creation will appeal to collectors and animal lovers of all ages!
Hansa is respected the world over for its finely crafted collection of our planet's animal kingdom. Originally created for exclusive European collectors, each plush animal is meticulously handcrafted from portraits of real animals in their natural habitat. Hansa's goal is to help educate children and adults alike, about the natural lives of these magnificent creatures, and to understand, respect and appreciate the importance of our co-existence with all animals. Each animal comes with a "Toys that Teach" tag describing, in detail, the animal's habitat, lifestyle, gestation period, care of their young and eating habits.
Significant research goes into reproducing every animal species. As noted above, the fabric for the spotted and striped 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 piece their 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).
The sheer reality of the collection has also made Hansa Toy the preferred supplier to many zoos, wildlife parks, garden centres, Christmas displays, media events, photo-shoots, and exhibitions.
Available in ten distinctive collections, these animals can be posed together to create magical attractions that bring out the wonder in all of us!

In 1989, Hansa launched its venture into the very large Plush Toy Industry. The Phillippines was chosen as the production hub because of its great source of artistic design talent, and artisans with an "eye for detail." In addition, the educational standards of the country are high, and most of the workforce is bi-lingual, which facilitates excellent communication. Even with these important factors, the design and execution of high quality plush animals is only possible with a highly skilled, secure workforce of artisans. Hansa is proud of the fact that an average of over nine years experience in the industry stands behind each design specialist.
Hansa is strongly opposed to employment of child labor and sub-standard work practices and firmly believes the treatment of their associates is reflected in the care, quality, and commitment to design excellence reflected in the face of each animal. Hansa is also very proud to pay its workers at hourly rate, and not a per piece rate, providing a secure environment in which the creative minds and hands produce wonderfully lifelike results. Hansa Products are 100% made in the Philippines. Hansa does not use any material coming from China in the production of their products.
Hansa products are hand-crafted by artists in “green oriented” artisan studios.
At Hansa Toy International, Inc., they believe today's children hold the fate of our planet's wild creatures in their hands. Today's children will be the adults who will make the final choice to save the endangered animals of our world or let them disappear forever.
Hansa Toy International, Inc. has earned a worldwide reputation for creating quality products worthy of the special love and attachment that children bestow on their toys, and they understand how, during childhood, lessons are learned and values formed that last a lifetime.
Believing that today's children will play a vital role in the fate of wildlife, and that toys can be an important tool in forming children's values, Hansa has created plush toys designed to be not only authentic and life-like, but also cuddly and loveable. They hope to inspire children (and adults!) to love and learn about wild animals and, as a result, they hope to inspire a life-long commitment to wildlife conservation. Hansa feels that their
products truly are "toys that educate the heart".
