Kind Fur® Boxed Collection (Discounted Set of All 32 Boxed Faux Furs)


We apologize; this item is no longer available.

Kind Fur® replicas are an ideal resource for educators. Designed primarily to give children ages 6 to 13 the look and feel of animal fur, these replicas go well with storytelling and discovery table activities. We need to emphasize, however, that these replicas are not study skins (they lack eye holes, ears, noses, paws and tails). On the other hand, unlike real fur, these replicas do not have special storage or treatment requirements. They also do not require knowledge of complex and ever-changing regulations regarding State of Origin fur tags, permits, transfers, and associated necessary record keeping. Most importantly, Kind Fur® does not require trapping animals better left alive in the wild.

It is important to note that in nature there is tremendous variation in fur color, even on a single specimen, let alone among the same species in different locations or seasons. These replicas are close in appearance (and feel) to animal furs, but won’t match “perfectly” with any given real fur. Also, as can be the case with skull replicas, high-quality faux fur can sometimes cost more than real fur. While realistic in appearance, replica fur can always be identified by looking at the backing—replica fur has cloth fabric backing, as opposed to tanned animal hide.

These boxed Kind Furs® have been securely adhered with non-toxic water-based glue to the inside of protective 12" long x 9" wide x 2" deep wooden slide-top boxes (custom crafted in the US for Acorn Naturalists' Kind Furs®). Students can study and feel the fur, and slide the protective lid over it when done. The box is labeled on the back, making it easy to set out on a table for quiz games or activities such as matching a sample with skull, track or scat replicas.

This collection includes the following replicas: Arctic Fox, Arctic Hare, Badger, Bat, Beaver, Black Bear, Black Bear (Blond Phase), Black Bear (Cinnamon Phase), Black Leopard, Bobcat, Chinchilla, Cottontail Rabbit, Cougar, Cougar Cub, Coyote, Gray Fox, Gray Squirrel, Gray Wolf, Grizzly Bear, Leopard, Long-Tailed Weasel, Lynx, Mink, Muskrat, Ocelot, Opossum, Raccoon, Red Fox, Red Wolf, Short-Tailed Weasel (Ermine), Snow Leopard, and Striped Skunk.
