BLUE WHALE FIGURINE
PAPO | 3 years & up
Realistic detailing and incredible paintwork are what set PAPO's marine animal figurines ahead of the rest. Each figurine is hand painted and manufactured according to strict EN-71 specifications; with meticulous attention paid to details like scale, posture, weight, and even texturing for optimal realism.
Featuring an articulated krill catcher that opens up to the most impressively detailed set of teeth, this Blue Whale figurine is designed true to its iconic real-life counterpart, with realistically textured throat grooves; gracefully finished flippers and flukes; and even a blowhole bump to spring those budding imaginations to life! Like all PAPO figurines, this Blue Whale is made from non-toxic plastic and is BPA and phthalate-free, making it a safe choice for play even with our younger ones.
BRILLIANT BLUE WHALE FACTS!
• The Blue Whale is the largest animal ever to have lived on earth. Their tongues alone can weigh as much as an elephant - their hearts, as much as a car.
• Despite being so massive, this giant of the ocean feeds on some of the smallest marine life – tiny shrimp like animals called krill. A single adult blue whale can consume 36,000 kg of krill a day.
• Intensive hunting in the 1900s by whalers seeking whale oil drove them to the brink of extinction. Hundreds of thousands of whales were killed and even thought the 1966 International Whaling Commission finally gave Blue Whales protection, they have only recovered slightly since then. Today, blue whales are classified as endangered on the World Conservation Union (IUCN) Red List; with only an estimated 10,000-25,000 of them left in the ocean.
