An old cat on wheels and "cousins" from Australia!

The old cat is a Steiff from 1919. The teddy bear museum has good collection of really interesting, old bears and other stuffed toys.

Gammel Steiff kat på hjul, 1919.
 Koalas are not really bears - they are marsupials and like kangaroos their babies grow in pouches on mum's tummy. Originally toy koalas were made from kangaroo skins - but now mostly cuddly, soft, washable modern materials. 

Koala familien klatrer på eucalyptus træet og baggrund viser Tasmanien
og Sydney. To af bamserne
(i midten) er lavet af kanguru pels.
