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. 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).
