‘Höff’ the Polar Bear is the latest addition to our animatronic suit collection. He has just come back from his first outing to Iceland!
Despite his naturally handsome, Polar Bear-ish good looks, Hoff is in fact an amazingly lifelike costume worn by a performer and comprises an internal soft mechanical muscle structure with arm and neck extensions.
A hair suit is worn over the top of this, with a fully animatronic Polar Bear head and neck. The animatronics of the bear’s head are operated remotely by a puppeteer and can replicate most facial expressions.
