Plains-Wanderer 19cm by Hansa


Standing about 12-15cm tall and weighing 40 to 95 grams, Plains-wanderers are small fawn coloured birds that blend in seamlessly with the plains of arid Australia. Their dappled feathers include white and blackish marks, with spots and streaks on the head and neck. The only surviving species in the family Pedionomidae, Plains-wanderers sit alone on their own branch of the evolutionary tree. There’s nothing else like it in the world, but the Plains-wanderer is also critically endangered and at risk of imminent extinction.
Found only in the arid grasslands of south-eastern Australia, there are estimated to be between 250 and 1,000 of these small, ground-dwelling birds left in the wild today.

Hansa Toys stand apart from the competition because of the quality, attention to detail, and pin point accuracy of specific animal characteristics that are used in each production. Artists create each Hansa animal from portraits of the creature in its natural habitat. Hansa meticulously hand-cuts and trims the coats of each animal, never by machine, and they have specially trained Hansa artisans to create the subtle colouring on the animals by hand painting or airbrushing. On average, there are 42 separate pieces required to make each animal. Some animals have as many as 240 different parts!
