This single sheet advertising flyer shows a range of Australian native animal soft toys, featuring koalas, kangaroos, wombats and platypus each assigned with a unique number for identification. The soft toys featured on this advertising flyer were designed and manufactured in Australia under the Koala Mate brand name after Jakas Soft Toys merged with Koala Mate Pty. Ltd. in 1989.

Jakas Soft Toys was a Melbourne-based company which designed and manufactured genuine high quality soft toys from 1956. Their range included teddy bears, golliwogs and Australian native animals.

Jakas Soft Toys ceased production in the late 1990s outlasting many local toy manufacturers competing with cheaper overseas imports.
