Praying Mantis (Mantis Religiosa) is a very clever insect. He lives in the green but he also likes to sunbath or read the book.
My Mantis is made of some different fabrics - wellsoft, corduroy, plush, canvases and tulle. The body of the Mantis is 16" (40 cm) long (plus antennas). The Mantis is a perfect sleeping toy or nursery decoration (but don't forget the eyes!)
There is a little black pearl behind the tulle which normally can't be removed but if the tulle is torn then the pearl could fall off and would be dangerous for toddlers. If you would like me to make it without the pearl then please write your request as comment!

Most of my plushies are machine washable (use low temperature, mild detergent) and can be tumble dried.
I use high quality plush and wellsoft fabrics and siliconized polyfill stuffing - all of them ar Oeko Tex 100 certified, safe for baby and children products.
All my items are made for orders, I do not have any ready to ship items. Normally I have lots of open orders (thank to all my kind customers) therefore I should set up my listings with long processing times.
Shipping time is not a real factor - I can send parcels using DHL Express service which is usually delivered in only 2-4 working days.
If you would like to get your plushie for a special occasion with shorter deadline then please contact me and I will let you know if I can do it in time. I promise that I will do my best!
Muma plushies: They are more or less the same size, about 20 cm (8") body.
Normal (S) plushies: They are more or less 25-30 cm (10-12") seated. Plus legs and tails.
Medium (M) plushies: They are about 35-40 cm (15-17") seated. Plus legs and tails.
Big (XL) plushies and Big Pillows: Normal plushies are doubled in every dimensions so their volume is 8 times more than the normal ones. They are really huge.
Personalized doggies and cats: Their length depend on the number of letters written on. Each letter section is 7 cm (2 1/2") wide. Head and bottom adds 25 cm (10") so a 5 letters long doggie would be about 60 cm (24") long.

I absolutely adore mantises! I find them so beautiful, otherworldly, and endearing; but it’s near impossible to find a plush of one. I’m positively elated with this gorgeous green fellow (and Andrea was very kind and awesome to work with)! This complex plush design, made of a lovely combination of different fabrics, all-around accurately depicts a praying mantis entomology-wise, and also captures his inquisitive cuteness perfectly. Ingenious eye design; I love how the beads (representing his pseudo-pupils) can be moved beneath the tulle to give him expression! He is extremely soft, fluffy, and huggable, and I’m very pleased with the modification I requested for his tummy to be bright green and plump. His mandibles are so cute, a little crooked, but it gives him character! Floppy and so cuddly! Thanks! 💚
