Sleeping Grizzly Bear
This hibernating grizzly bear is the perfect snuggle buddy on any night.
Did you know? The grizzly bear is found in areas of North America, Europe, and Asia. It is the fiercest and most aggressive of all the bears. Between the ages of 5 and 7 years old, female bears have their 1st young. Normally, grizzly bears give birth to 2 cubs and are able to reproduce up to almost 30 years old. They eat enormous amounts of fish, berries & succulent plants, sometimes consuming 40 kg/88 pounds of food per day. During the cold months of winter, grizzly bears will hibernate. Their heart rate slows from 40 beats per minute to just 8 beats per minute, allowing them to conserve energy.
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 grizzly bear measures 15" L x 9.5" W x 6.3" H.
