This is Willy the Whale
Willy is a funny big blue whale. He is a perfect baby toy or sleeping fellow for children.
His fat body is 15" (38 cm) long from the head to the tail. His back is made of soft blue plush and the belly is made of canvas (color and pattern may vary). Eyes are safety buttons, suitable for small children as well. He is machine washable on low temperature using mild detergent. Tumble dryable.
Outer material is Oeko-Tex 100 certified, stuffing is high quality siliconized polyfill.
Pollutoys are adorable, plush sea animals, but behind their cute faces lies a sad reality. Their insides are crammed with indigestible plastic garbage: bottles, bags cutlery, cups, and all of the other plastic junk that makes its way to our oceans. Studies show that reaching young children with a message of environmental consciousness can help build a foundation that lasts throughout their lives. That makes pollutoys a fun way to encourage the next generation to fight ocean pollution.

Pollutoys campaign is for Sea Shepherd. The concept and the video was created Fred and Farid (Shanghai) marketing agency. I am contracted to Fred and Farid and designed the toys for this campaign. I am licenced to make and also sell Pollutoys.
Pollutoys are all handmade by my Budapest artisan studio. Me and my colleagues make these toys all by hand.
We use Oeko Tex 100 Standard certified outer materials for the toys and fill them using a high quality siliconized stuffing material. Pollutoys are machine washable using low temperature and a mild detergent and can be tumble dried.
All Pollutoy have a belly pocket with some "garbage items" in it. Garbage items are also handmade from textiles, totally baby safe, but please note that the belly pocket's zipper have a small metal handle.
*** Belly of the Whale would be made from canvas. Color and pattern would be different than it is on the pictures. ***

Most of my plushies are machine washable (use low temperature, mild detergent) and can be tumble dried.
I use high quality plush and wellsoft fabrics and siliconized polyfill stuffing - all of them ar Oeko Tex 100 certified, safe for baby and children products.
All my items are made for orders, I do not have any ready to ship items. Normally I have lots of open orders (thank to all my kind customers) therefore I should set up my listings with long processing times.
Shipping time is not a real factor - I can send parcels using DHL Express service which is usually delivered in only 2-4 working days.
If you would like to get your plushie for a special occasion with shorter deadline then please contact me and I will let you know if I can do it in time. I promise that I will do my best!
Muma plushies: They are more or less the same size, about 20 cm (8") body.
Normal (S) plushies: They are more or less 25-30 cm (10-12") seated. Plus legs and tails.
Medium (M) plushies: They are about 35-40 cm (15-17") seated. Plus legs and tails.
Big (XL) plushies and Big Pillows: Normal plushies are doubled in every dimensions so their volume is 8 times more than the normal ones. They are really huge.
Personalized doggies and cats: Their length depend on the number of letters written on. Each letter section is 7 cm (2 1/2") wide. Head and bottom adds 25 cm (10") so a 5 letters long doggie would be about 60 cm (24") long.
