I got this cute tiger in Casablanca, Morocco. It did quite a lot of searching for stuffed animals in Morocco while I was there. Morocco though has very little in the way of any plush. I think a lot of that is because Morocco is a poor country and buying a stuffed animal is one of those discretionary purchases that very few people there have the money for. This one I bought at Joupi, one of the few toy stores in Casablanca. He cost 490 Moroccan Dirhams which is about US$56 or €44. Many people in Morocco earn around $200-$400 per month, so this tiger cost the same as a week to two weeks of wages for the majority of population. The store actually had a guard by the door to keep out the beggars and the people who look undesirable. Morocco is a very interesting place to visit, and was a lot of fun. But it sucks for finding new plushies for the collection. But I was happy to find a couple there at least. I really like this tiger, he is very soft and cuddly and made quite well.

This tiger is branded Amiplush, which is the plush brand of French toy company Logitoys. He is 24" long (excluding his 11" tail), 11½" tall and 12" wide. His EAN is 3375701415109: His model number is: J64601GAP.
