The feathertail glider, also known as the pygmy gliding possum, pygmy glider, pygmy phalanger, flying phalanger and flying mouse, is a species of marsupial native to eastern Australia. It is the world's smallest gliding mammal and is named for its long feather-shaped tail.
This delightful little soft toy is made in Australia by Jozzies Australia, in Sydney. She is made from non-allergic, fire resistant wool and synthetic fur fabrics which exceed all Australian safety standards.
Measures 15cm long.
We choose to support 'Made in Australia' soft toys as the quality and integrity of business far outway similar 'Made in China' products and it helps support other small businesses like ourselves.
The stuffed toy is very well made, but bigger than I thought it was going to be, and the tail is not flexible. This is for a specific purpose, and is not really suitable. My mum has dementia and is in care. She was a wildlife carer specialising in possums, ringtails and brushtails mostly, and I was hoping to have a small one that she could put down her shirt as she used to do for her babies.
She loves this one but it's just too big. If you have any suggestions they would be gratefully received. Thanks for the beautiful toy.
