PALAEOPLUSHIES IS MOVING! If you've found your way here somehow, you need to head on over to

Mini Beanie Thylacine 36cm handmade plush toy


These Thylacines are a little smaller than my regular ones, and have slightly shorter tails. This is because the pattern was based off photos of captive individual which had a damaged tail, which was often seen in captive thylacines.

This plush is made of custom printed minky fabric to my own design, sewn and stuffed, with plastic safety eyes. It has plastic beans in it's body for weight and pose-ability. This plush isn't stuffed solidly so it is flops and sits like a bean bag.

These plushies will come with a certificate of authenticity, detailling their species, the date they were made and proving that they are an original Palaeoplushie handmade in Scotland by Rebecca Groom.

As this is a hand made item, it is not intended for children and is designed to be an art piece for adults. As they are stitched by machine, they won't fall apart if handled roughly but have not passed the relevant safety standards to be sold as a child's toy.

An Optional Donation can be made on your behalf to Conservation Volunteers Australia "Help Save the Tasmanian Devil" programme, which includes rebuilding essential habitat and maintaining fences to protect disease-free populations of Tasmanian Devils.
