Prettier in real life...
My niece loves Beluga Whales and I searched on WebCortex for one that was pretty and could go on her desk. I found several that were glass, procelain, resin, etc. and ranged in price from $22.00 and up. By chance I came across this one after I had some figurines in my cart, this figurine is almost ten inches long and textered (kind of a hard durable plastic) and beautiful-the other figurines were very small, 1 1/2 in to 3 in's. I am very pleased with the quility and the price and on the plus side it was WebCortex prime.

Well made and beautifully finished!
I buy all the Safari Ltd Sea "creatures" for my 3 1/2 year-old son. He absolutely LOVES them. They're one of his favorite, if not favorite, toys. They are great for bathtime as water doesn't get into them and they stand up to time under water. All the animals look real and are done with even the most minute realistic details. Well made and beautifully finished!

This Beluga Whale toy is realistic, precious, inexpensive, durable, and non-toxic. I wouldn't change anything about it. A great display piece for adults or an educational toy for kids.

love the whole collection
I have the whole Monterey Bay collection, and I use them in my science class for teaching about marine animals and their adaptations. These replicas are great! They also make fun toys for kids, but I don't recommend them for young ones (under age 8 or so). These toys are made out of hard plastic. Their fins are pointy. As a result, you will find that kids see them as suitable substitutes for swords and use them in an all-out sibling duel. ;) That leaves the toys looking pretty beat up, and, in my experience, brings on Mom's reproach. You should only buy these for your kids if they are old enough and gentle enough to appreciate them.

This gift was a hit with my nephew!

My wife loves Beluga Whales so I bought this to decorate a present that contained a plush Beluga Whale that had a new watch (which was the real gift) around its neck like a collar.

desktop present for my wife
This looks just like its photo and is suitable to place on an office desk.
While these are not to a specific scale, they are very close to G-gauge or 1:20 scale for many of the smaller farm and domestic animals (but scales do vary depending on the animal such as elephants versus chickens).
It is nicely detailed and perfectly painted. I am using these as "models" for creating illustrations for children's books.You can't beat the detail for the price.

Very pleased with this purchase. It was needed by my grandson for a school project. Workmanship was far better than what we expected.

My beluga crazy son sleeps with this, plays in the sand box with this and carries it around everywhere. It is a happy looking toy hard enough and tough enough for a 6 yr old's love!
