Just for kids…
The Children’s Jungle features plush models of many animals. Most popular are the ring-tailed lemur with curly wire tail, ready to hang from your child’s bedpost or desk lamp and of course the cuddly take-home versions of our adorable new babies.
In the Jungle, snakes hang from the rafter-lianas and small fuzzy zebra and giraffe run amok! Your children will delight in the miniature animal collections and will spend many hours absorbed in a game of Animalopoly.
Discover exotic gifts in their natural habitat…
