It took 7 plastic water bottles to create the Stuffed Okapi Mini EcoKins by Wild Republic, and while she is trying to save the planet in general by being eco-friendly, she is also trying to save her own kind, because this unique-looking mammal is on the endangered list. This animal is featured in our book Weird & Wacky Creatures 1!
Measuring approximately 8 inches, this plush okapi looks like a zebra, deer, and horse all rolled into one, although its only living relative is, in fact, the giraffe.
Made from a soft and strokable plush fabric, the Stuffed Okapi Mini EcoKins by Wild Republic has black and white stripey legs and a chestnut brown body, and is 100% eco-friendly, with soy-based ink, and even recycled paper hang tags.
Native to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, these beautiful animals are normally extremely shy and will run from humans, but with the Stuffed Okapi Mini EcoKins by Wild Republic, you can have your very own elusive stuffed Okapi who won’t be shy at all.
Standing on all four stripey legs, she has a delightfully embroidered calf-like face that you will fall instantly in love with, and just like a mama okapi does with her newborn, you can build a cozy little home for your beautiful new arrival and you to share.
Wild Republic doesn't just produce fantastic stuffed animals, they also work closely with many foundations to provide housing and education for disadvantaged children, as well as protection for abandoned animals throughout the world. Proceeds from Wild Republic's sales help to support these organizations. We are proud to carry their excellent products on WeirdandWackyPlanet.com and to do our small part to help contribute to their charitable donations.
Wild Republic has also incorporated many eco-friendly practices into the production of their items so that they can reduce their footprint, such as using plush filling made from recycled water bottles, and even producing an entire line of stuffed animals that are made from 100% recycled materials. All of the incredible stuffed animals by Wild Republic are made with all new, child-safe materials and they meet or exceed all U.S. safety standards. Wild Republic plush is recommended for ages 3 and up, and is surface washable unless otherwise stated.
