This Brontosaurus is the perfect addition to any home, especially for little ones who love playing with dinosaurs.
These stuffed dinosaurs are the most realistic portrayals of dinosaurs to date and are also posable with a metal frame.
Did you know? Brontosaurus means "thunder lizard" from the Greek words "bronte" (thunder) and "sauros" (lizard). The brontosaurus had a long, thin neck with a small head in order to reach the tops of trees and eat the leaves to fulfil their herbivorous lifestyle, similar to the modern day giraffe. This dinosaur also had a large torso and a long tail, and were estimated to have weighed up to 15 tonnes and measured up to 72 feet long from head to tail. Brontosaurus lived during the Late Jurassic period and are one of the most recognizable dinosaurs today.
More to the Story
Artisans hand sew the animals inside out, an old world tradition that results in the minimization of seams, and their bodies are carefully sculpted to create musculature and features like movement in a walking or sitting position that are unique to each creature. On average, there are 42 separate pieces required to make each animal, that must be combined by a team of truly creative artists to create the distinctly realistic features that characterize HANSA animals. (Some animals have as many as 240 different parts!) Each animal is individually hand sewn, to give it a unique personality, there are more than 860 different fabrics and man-made furs from which the "coat" and "hides" are made, along with over 6000 sets of different eyes, whiskers, claws, noses, and related accessories allocated for creating these wonderful plush animals. Stuffing emphasizes careful attention to the placement of the highest quality man-made materials. When you hold these wonderfully life-like animals, you will see and feel HANSA's emphasis on quality, which is a result of careful attention to design, custom fabric selection, cutting, sewing, stuffing, eye placement, feature creation, framing, airbrushing and finishing. Since each animal is hand sewn, there will be slight variations in appearance.
This Dilophosaurus measures 17.5" L x 3.5" W x 7.5" H.
