This adorable Plush Elephant Seal is also known as Zhdun / Snorp / Homonculus Loxodontus.
The original figure was created by the Dutch artist Margriet van Breevoort. It captures the emotion of the hospital waiting room, which is where it gets its name from (‘Zhdun’ is Russian for ‘to wait’). The figure resides in a children’s hospital in the Netherlands, where it brightens up the lives of patients daily.
Do you know a loved one who will soon be visiting the hospital or waiting at an airport? Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get them their very own companion to share their anxiety with.
