Belinda is a small exquisitely soft and realistic soft plush toy bilby.  Adopting the Bilby as Australia's official Easter animal helps to spark public interest in native wildlife conservation & helps to keep conservation efforts moving forward.

Belinda is a handmade and airbrushed plush toy that measures 23cm/9" in length or 30cm/12" including the tail, 10cm/4" in width and 14cm/5.5" in height to the top of the ears.

Bilbies are also known as rabbit-bandicoot due to their very long ears and they are desert-dwelling marsupial omnivores. There were two species but the lesser bilby became extinct in the 1950s, the greater bilby survives but remains endangered.  The Bilby is about the size of a domestic cat. The male, which is larger than the female, grows to about half a metre from tip to tail, and weighs up to two and a half kilograms. Bilbies typically live for about 10 years.
