GUND Partners With San Diego Zoo
GUND is proud to announce a partnership with the San Diego Zoo designating GUND as the exclusive distributor of plush animals to the zoo’s gift and specialty stores.
This partnership joins two organizations with a long and rich history, with GUND founded in 1898 and the San Diego Zoo founded in 1916. Each plush animal in the GUND collection captures the charm and wonder of the animals that inhabit one of the most famous zoos in the world.
The initial introduction of this collection contains six of the zoo’s most visited animals. Each animal is approximately eight inches tall and is handcrafted from superior quality plush with realistic detailing and includes a hang tag with facts and fun information about that particular animal.
The San Diego Zoo was established as a privately owned not-for-profit organization and GUND is proud to donate a portion of their proceeds to San Diego Zoo to support global conservation programs.
