Despite the distinct lack of the d-word in their name, Elk are actually a species of deer. But Rudolph this isn’t. Of course if Santa had eight of these bad boys pulling his sleigh, he probably wouldn’t have needed Rudolph with his big red fog lamp nose. They’d be like, “Blizzard? Please.” then just power on through.
Wildlife Artists brings their love of all things that crawl, swim, creep or fly to soft snuggly life with this small plush elk. What’s that saying? Good things come in small packages? Well, that certainly seems to be the case with this guy. He’s like the pint-sized powerhouse of the plush elk family. In addition to their conservation work, Wildlife Artists is committed to providing realistic plush animals that closely mimic the real thing, without actually being the real thing. This makes them ten, nay, a thousand times better than some average plush you might find on a Toys R’ Us.
Additionally, this proud prince of the forest (Take that, Bambi’s deadbeat dad!) is revered in Native American lore, and is prized as both rich source of lean, tasty meat and medicine (its antlers are used in some Asian herbal remedies). With native ranges extending from North America (remember, for you geographically challenged types, that includes Canada and Mexico) and East Asia, and with introductions to New Zealand, Australia and Argentina, this mighty muncher of green organic goodness is a win-win deal no matter where you call home.
