We've got 'em in ALL FOUR COLORS again!!
We think these plush stuffed parrot toys are exceptional. They are so lifelike and compelling, you almost won't believe they're stuffed toys and not the real thing. Although they're made of synthetic materials, they look real. Each brightly colored parrot measures 6 inches tall from head to feet, the tail feathers add another 8 1/4 inches. They are available in four brilliant color combinations: red wings and yellow body, blue wings and green body, yellow wings and blue body, green wings and red body. The designer of this unique line of stuffed animals takes pride in the European heritage of his realistic animal design. Each piece is hand-cut and stitched.
These are not your ordinary stuffed birds. Our parrots have the charm and quality you'll want to keep for a lifetime. They are the kind of toys your child will remember for years to come. They're the kind of "pet" a young child will want to name and create his or her own stories about.
The literature says, "The magical kingdom of Hansa plush was originally created for the most exclusive European clientele. Europeans have treasured these lifelike heirloom creatures for over twenty years. . . . Each Hansa piece is a handcrafted masterpiece, lovingly designed from portraits of real animals. The 'skin' for each of these marvelous beasts is hand-cut and trimmed, never stamped out by machine. The fabric for spotted and striped animals is custom designed and specially manufactured in small lots to Hansa's exacting specifications."
As time permits, we will be adding more of this unique line to our gift shop. If you're looking for an animal and don't find it on our site, please write to us.

There are roughly 372 species of parrots. Parrots are native to primarily tropical and subtropical regions of the world, with the greatest diversity of species to be found in South America and Austaliasia. The oldest parrot fossil has been dated to about 70 million years ago. Parrots are among the most intelligent birds, and are well-known for their ability to mimic sounds, including human speech.
Of the 372 species of parrot, 130 are listed as "near-threatened" or worse. this is due to a variety of factors, including loss of habitat, hunting, and wild-bird collecting. In Argentina, a breed of parrot (the monk parakeet) was designated an agricultural pest and was hunted for bounties, but this practice has been discontinued. Wild parrots are also at risk from introduced species of predator, such as feral cats and rats, to which the parrot is not adapted to evade, particularly on islands where the parrot population cannot migrate out of predatory range. Many conservation groups exist to protect parrots and their habitat.
