On a mission to cuddle

About us

Heunec introduces itself

Kuschelwelt

kuschelig

A passion for cuddling!

Hello and welcome to Heunec. We would love to abduct you and take you on a “mission to cuddle” during which you learn a lot about us but even more about the things which provide us with fresh motivation each day and which fill us with joy. At the end of this journey, you will understand why our products are much more than “just” plush figures. We wish you lots of fun while discovering our range!
We are an international toy manufacturer with its headquarters in the dolls city of Neustadt near Coburg. With an annual production of an average of two million plush animals, we are one of the ten largest manufacturers in the German traditional toy trade.
The name HEUNEC stands for an inexhaustible creativity, flexibility – but above all – for fun with plush animals! Since the company was founded in the year 1891 the wishes of our customers have been at the heart of our work. This means that year on year we produce plush animal toys which each have their own unique character.
There is a very simple philosophy behind the story of our years of success: Our toys simply represent real value for money. Each product is developed and manufactured with great attention to detail. Our plush animals are unmistakeable because we use only super soft, high-quality materials and because of their really expressive faces. The combination of good quality and a reasonable price level is a guarantee for our unique products which are fun for children to play with but which will also impress adult fans of cuddly soft toy animals! Heunec plush animals are now being cuddled in one third of children’s bedrooms across Germany.

Produktspektrum

Heunec means variety

We have a wide selection of toys

It is not just our high quality standards which are easy to see at Heunec. With a current collection of more than 800 individual items, we cover a very large range of plush animal toys. For our customers this means, They can get a full service “from a single source.”

We have a wide range of products, especially in plush animal toys. There are many gradations between high-price collectors’ items and “cheap fairground plush animals”. Our goal is to produce high-quality plush toys at a price everyone can afford. Without exception, our plush animals are made both for collecting AND to be played with. But it is also because of our wide variety of plush animal toys and an exciting mix of licensed articles and our own in-house developments, that we stand out from other manufacturers.
It is precisely this variety that sets us apart from the rest. Because we do not limit ourselves to making standard models but are guided by the wishes and requirements of our customers. On the basis of this philosophy, we have developed a unique portfolio which contains almost everything ranging from small promotional gifts to large animals which children can ride on to the huge decorative bears – and all from a single source!

Sonderanfertigung

Gifts for every occassion

special designs

Whether you want to give someone a gift in your personal life or as a marketing tool for your business or association: Individualised little mascots are always something special! This is because they conquer the hearts of their new owners in a particularly personal way and ensure in the nicest way possible that your message will be remembered for a long time to come.


Private gift ideas

You have a birth, the anniversary of a colleague’s start of employment in your company or a milestone birthday of a friend coming up. But what should we give them?
An Individualised little mascot is a special gift idea for every occasion. Giving someone a little mascot is a really good way to show someone how much you appreciate them and they will help someone to remember that special day for years to come. In our head office in Neustadt near Coburg we realise your gift ideas, depending on feasibility, either in digital transfer printing or using the computer controlled embroidery machine.

 

Notes on personalisation

  • Because we cannot provide any warranty on goods made by other manufacturers, we exclusively use items from our own collections for personalisation.
  • Prints on T-shirts and bandanas (head or neck scarves) are ideal for small print runs.
  • It is not possible to print directly onto plush animals which are made of some particular materials. Lettering is not really feasible on long-hair plush animals because it will not be easily readable. In such cases we suggest a print on a T-shirt or scarf would be better. In such cases the little mascots are supplied with clothes on.
  • Prices will depend on your requirements and on the costs of implementing your designs.
  • The production of replicas of existing, defective plush animals is very expensive and is therefore not offered by us. But you can use our repair service.


Company and club mascots

Less is more. Anyone who wants to attract potential customers can do this by using press reports, newspaper ads or a sophisticated Internet presence. Bust sometimes even the most cleverly worded advertisements are not enough to open up the hearts of the people looking at them.
In such cases, the cuddly ambassadors of the Heunec company really hit the bullseye! The use of the term “ambassadors” is part of our program: The combination of a plush figure and the advertising message makes your brand not only well known but literally also felt. It is no wonder then that even critical viewers become enthusiastic about it.

 

Notes for special developments

  • We have various production methods for your custom-made products, depending on the quantity you require and your other requirements. Smaller quantities of items are also manufactured in part at our headquarters in Neustadt, for larger quantities, however, we have to use our factories in Asia.
  • It is only economically viable for us to make completely new developments in larger quantities, however. Talk to us, we will be happy to advise you.
  • Prices will depend on your requirements and on the costs of implementing your designs.
  • The personalisation of licensed articles is only possible subject to certain conditions. Please ask about this in advance.
  • Please note the delivery times in the event of a planned production in Asia. Subject to a scheduled design phase, we can usually notify you of planned delivery dates after your order has been clarified.
