Handmade in Germany, the white and the brown alpaca have a durable woven fur made of natural alpaca wool, which makes them especially soft and cuddly. Special emphasis was given to their naturalistic appearance. All KÖSEN plush animals conform to the highest safety standards. The materials, products and production are inspected by TÜV and meet all requirements of the European safety standard for toys EN 71. "This toy has the potential to be a keeper beyond childhood and to be passed on to the next generation," assured Sybille Hartmann, Sales and Marketing Manager, KÖSEN USA, Inc. Launch date: January 2008.
