What's Inside Matters in Hansa's Plush Animals
Usually when you think about plush, you immediately think of a child since they are one of the key hallmarks of childhood. However, plush animals are not limited to children, not anymore. There are many ways for grown-ups to bring these cuddly creatures into their lives — from a fluffy penguin for your work desk to comfortable baby cheetah as pillows/cushions in your living room, to life-size plush for special celebratory occasions.
When it comes to plush animals they are just like people, it's what's inside that matters most. Since not all plush fillings are made the same, depends on whom the plush is made for, you might want to check if it is 100% safe for your child. Some might contain toxic and harmful materials, some might have the stitches that are not strong enough and let the toy-stuffing escape.
There are three options in toy stuffing: organic, synthetic, and eco-friendly. Organic toy stuffing is made from things that grow and processed by following a certain standard, while synthetic materials are man-made but mixed with natural fibers like cotton, linen and wool. Eco-friendly toy filling is either harmless or less harmful to the environment and most of them are biodegradable.
Among the synthetic options, polyester — derived from coal, air, water, and petroleum — is now the most commonly used toy stuffing for stuffed animals. Being extremely light weight makes it suitable for children’s toys, especially for baby toys which you want to be very light.
Anatomically scaled from small size to actual life size like the 5-meter tall Giraffe, Hansa's animals are created in Philippines where people have an exceptional artistic ability and high modern labor standards. As for the inside of plush, every sculptured creation is filled with green material fiber made from recycled PE (Polyethylene) bottles thus conserving the natural resources as well as practicing ecological awareness along the whole production process. Additionally, the materials are carefully prepared and tested to comply with every safety standard around the world.
