The polar bear (Ursus maritimus) lives in the Arctic. Though it's fur seems to be white, indeed it is without any pigments. Each single hair is hollow and lead the sunrays to the black skin. Due to this fact and the thick layer of fat they can resist the cold up to -50°C (-58°F).
Although the amount of polar bears did raise since 1966 the animals are affected by the climate change and the melting polar seas. Since 2006 it is listed as an endangered species.
The maternity of polar bears takes ca. 8 months. The cubs, often two, get born in a snowdrift where they stay for three months. After this the long and exhausting journey for food starts. 

Polar Bear "Schmuddel" is part of the Limited Edition Collection by Kösen. Only 500 of these were produced. Each toy is made of 71 individual pieces. One and a half year old polar bears are already grown up but still very playful. After taking a bath in the sand it's a pleasure for them to roll around in the sand. This stains their white fur yellowish-brown.
In order to depict this plush toy as close to original, these polar bear is made from valuable alpaca-plush fur which a brown-shimmer was added. The toy is stuffed with special polyester fibres and granules, hence "Schmuddel" is very soft and flexible.

Each Polar Bear "Schmuddel" comes with its own certificate and number and gets delivered in a wooden case.
