Magic Rhino Astrid
Stuffed Rhinoceros

11.8 inches (30 centimeters)

Astrid is a white Rhino, a charming creature from the fairytale world.

She measures about 12" (30 cm) when sitting - without her ears.
Her fur is a wonderful smooth plush. I stuffed her with natural sheep wool and some steel shots for weight.
I sculpted her horn of clay, then painted and varnished it in a pale pink shade.
She has very realistic looking green German Glass eyes.
I needle sculpted her face and gently shaded her muzzle by hand to achieve a living expression.

Instead of a neck joint I gave her a lockline running from head to tail-like a spine.
So Astrid can move her head up and down and side to side (and everywhere in between). A very realistic feature. Her legs and her ears are wired.
I made her pink paw pads of suedette.

She will come to you with her pink hat - and her Certificate of Authenticity including a cute photo.
Of course she grew up in a smokefree home.

Please note: Due to small parts that could be swallowed, Astrid is for the adult collector only and not suitable for children to play with.

Astrid was not created of existing patterns, but designed only from photos and sketches, and exclusively by myself. She is completely handmade - a real OOAK.

My name is Yanina Link and I am a graduated fashion designer. Creating unique and completely handmade bears (and their friends) has become a wonderful profession for me. I only use high quality materials and fabrics for my creations. I am a real vintage fan, and so I am always looking for antique lace, buttons, fabrics... all over the world in oder to issue my bears with these beautiful treasures. I am really honoured that my "children" find their homes around the whole world. To see my bears in high quality pictures, please visit my blog!

Please note that my creations are for the adult collector only and not intended for kids to play with. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me!

You are always welcome! :)
