Giant panda bears are one of the world's most adored and protected rare animals; yet, they remain an endangered species threatened by continued habitat loss and by a very low birth rate, both in wild and captivity.
In honor of such a fascinating creature, and to bring awareness about the ongoing decline of the panda population, we decided to introduce a line of big teddy bears that we call the Xin family (pronounced 'shin'). Xin is mandarin for heartmind and the Xin family, like all panda bears, continues to win over the hearts of many with their precious round baby faces and unique black-and-white coloring. The Xin family has a distinct thick, wooly coat that keeps them warm in the cool forest habitat and makes them so darn cuddly when hugged.
Call it wishful thinking, but we created an entire family of large stuffed bears to honor the panda population that remains. This giant stuffed panda bear brood consists of Papa Xin, Mama Xin, Teddy Xin, Lola Xin and of course, Baby Xin.
Each member of the Xin family is 100% heart and ready for a new place to call home.
