This adorable plush stuffed Bison Cuddlekin looks lost without his herd. Despite his remarkable resemblance to his Northern Great Plains cousins, the horns of this plush stuffed bison are soft and his weight is negligible. (Full grown male bison can weigh as much as 2,000 pounds!) Adopt him, hug him and you will put a big pretend smile on his winsome face. Equally fun for child or adult. Non-toxic materials—polyester plush exterior, polyethylene pellet interior and lock washer eyes—meet or exceed U.S. safety standards. Surface-washable. Imported. Ages 3 and up. 12"l. x 5"w. x 8.5"h.
Though often called buffalo, bison are among some 274 mammals whose diversity is explored by The Kenneth E. Behring Family Hall of Mammals at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. You will find a bison in the prairie habitat in the North America Gallery. As running is a bison’s best defense, they are very fast speeding up to 55 MPH in their haste to escape predators.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
