The next best thing to living in the Dinosaur age is having creatures like this Minmi Paravertebra to imagine and pretend play with - perfect for dinosaur lovers of all ages.  And because they are each handcrafted with a metal wire frame inside, you can move and pose this little guy for every dino adventure you may find yourself immersed in. The talented artisans behind the creation of these wonderful animals spend a significant amount of time researching what animals actually looked like and how they moved, resulting in magical creations that could come to life at any moment.Artists working in a socially responsible and environmentally responsible studio create each plush animal from portraits of the creature in its natural habitat. And because each animal is hand sewn, every animal will have slight variations in appearance, giving them each their own unique personality.

Did you know? Minmi Paravertebra was named after the place it's fossils were first discovered Minmi Crossing, Queensland Australia, and the strange bone elements found along the vertebrae, paravertebra.  The Minmi Paravertebra was a herbivore that walked on four long legs and had armored, bony plates on it's body. This dinosaur was estimated to measure 9.8 feet and weigh 660 pounds. Minmi Paravertebra lived during the Early Cretaceous period and were one of the smaller species of dinosaurs despite it's large size.

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.
