Have you ever wished you could swim with dolphins or pet a baby seal? Perhaps
you will never get up close and personal with these sea creatures, but how
about holding a plush tightly as you fall asleep each night?
That's the idea behind a new line of plush sea creatures introduced by the
Beverly Hills Teddy Bear Company (ToyShow)
featuring the art of Wyland. The first five sea mammals include an Orca
Whale, a Dolphin, a Baby Seal,
a Sea Lion and a Manatee.
The Beverly Hills Teddy Bear Company has created three different kinds of
the soft sea creatures. The large plush are 18 inches long, the "squeezers"
measure 12 inches and bean-filled creatures clock in at 7 inches. Each is
made of a velvet-sheen faux fur, according to David Socha, president of
The Beverly Hills Teddy Bear company. Special attention has been given to
every detail of these special plush creations. Squeezers even have a sound
chip inside them that makes realistic sounds when squeezed.
The Beverly Hills Teddy Bear Company enlisted legendary artist Wyland to
realistically replicate the beauty of marine life. Wyland is known around
the world for his magnificent paintings, murals and sculptures of marine
life. "He has been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records and
was recognized by the United Nations in 1998 for his conservation efforts,"
Wyland’s plush creations can be purchased for $5.99 - $29.99 at specialty
gift shops or by visiting bhteddybear.com.
