    General Information

    Live, love, laugh. With a faithful friend

    They are our closest relatives and so similar to us: almost 99 percent of the genetic material of chimpanzees and humans is the same. The social life of chimpanzees does not differ significantly from ours either: They laugh and love, they grieve and argue just like us. Philosopher Peter Singer has long advocated granting apes basic human rights - and rightly so, especially when we consider the findings of behavioral scientists such as Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey and Birutė Galdikas. If, unlike Jane Goodall, you do not have the opportunity to build an emotional relationship with a real chimpanzee: This lifelike chimpanzee from the Kösen workshops will prove to be a cuddly, almost huggable companion that will grow on you and definitely your child as a loyal friend.

    The Kösen Toy Manufacture.

    Genuine stuffed animals made in Bad Kösen are collector’s items, but what they are actually made for is life in a nursery. Up to 100 parts are necessary to make a Kösen animal with securely fastened safety eyes and stuffing of non-flammable silicone hollow fibre (in case of the teddy bears and the larger specimen, they also add some plastic granulate for anatomic accuracy). Unlike many other manufacturers, who mostly use materials made in Asia, they stick to plush that comes from weaving mills in Germany, Belgium and France. It has a firmer quality and can thus be sewn more tightly – ultimately the reason for the animals’ durability. Besides, this plush fabric is resistant to hair loss. The Kösen animals are among the finest you can find, not only in craft but also in design. For every model, thorough studies of anatomy and movement are conducted in the animals’ natural environment or at the zoo; blueprints and clay models follow. Thanks to the co-operation with the neighbouring Burg Giebichenstein, a well-known training centre for product design in Germany since the beginning of the 20th century, the Kösen stuffed animals have won several design prizes.
