Wombats are Australian marsupials; they are short-legged, muscular quadrupeds, approximately 39 inches in length with a very short tail. They are found in forested, mountainous, and heathland areas of south-eastern Australia and Tasmania. The name wombat comes from the Eora Aboriginal community who were the original inhabitants of the Sydney area.

Wombats dig extensive burrow systems with rodent-like front teeth and powerful claws. One distinctive adaptation of wombats is their backwards pouch. The advantage of a backwards-facing pouch is that when digging, the wombat does not gather dirt in its pouch over its young. Wombats are not commonly seen, but leave ample evidence of their passage, treating fences as minor inconveniences to be gone through or under, and leaving distinctive cubic faeces.

Wombats are herbivores; their diet consists mostly of grasses, sedges, herbs, bark and roots.

Bocchetta Plush Toys: Creating Joy Since 1948
Bocchetta Plush Toys is a family operated business, proud of a heritage that began in a small toy shop in the town of Arona, Italy. Today you will find us throughout much of Europe, Australia, and we are fast finding new friends in the Americas. A great portion of our success is due to the far reaching imagination and meticulous craftsmanship of our founder, Giovanni Bocchetta.

In 1948, Giovanni Bocchetta turned his creative passions to toy-making. Armed with the skills of the traditional Italian craftsman, Giovanni tested the limits of his imagination as he set out to make the softest, most lifelike toys a child will ever know.

Year by year he expanded the business, carefully staying true to the concepts of realistic design and quality craftsmanship.

In 1992, the family moved their main office to Australia's Gold Coast. Today Bocchetta Plush Toys remains an example of imagination and skill passed from father to son.

Bocchetta Plush Toys are manufactured in one of the three carefully selected and controlled Bocchetta toy factories, using the technology and know-how that we successfully have developed over the last 62 years.
