Sheila baby seal is part of Steiff’s National Geographic collection. She has big wide eyes, and her underbelly, face and inside tail fin are made of soft and cuddly plush fabric in grey-beige. An elegant airbrush design in grey adds a chic touch to the streamlined body.
At 23 cm long, Sheila belongs to the largha seal species. It lives in the Sea of Japan, Bering sea, Yellow Sea and in the Arctic Ocean. Soft Sheila can be found on the list of endangered species. This is because her habitat is threatened by overfishing and industrial and military pollution. Other factors threatening this species of seal include the expansion of trade and industrial areas as well as global warming.
Steiff has partnered with National Geographic and created a special collection of plush toy animals in support of preserving biodiversity. Proceeds from the sale of any National Geographic product support scientists, explorers and researchers from the National Geographic Society all over the world.
