This is Darla the Dolphin

Darla the Dolphin is made of blue plush (back) and canvas (belly) fabrics and filled with high quality siliconized polyfill. The outer materials are Oeko-Tex 100 Standard certified high quality fabrics. Eyes are safety buttons.

The Dolphin is 12" (30 cm) long!

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.

Shipping from Hungary

I always send the packages using Hungarian Post's priority mail service. They pick up my packages always on Thursday.

To avoid complaints I will send all my parcels registered and tracked. The extra fee for tracking is included in all item's shipping fee.

Unfortunately USPS stopped their online tracking service for packages sent from Hungary so they don't provide any information on the delivery process anymore. Delivery to the USA normally needs 14-18 days. If the package doesn't arrive to you in two weeks then please contact your local post office first and ask for the tracking code - hopefully they can find the package.

READY TO SHIP ITEMS: I ship them in 5-8 business days of finished purchase.

CUSTOM ORDER: please allow me 20-30 working days after received payment to make and ship your order. I always send a mail, when your order is dispatched. If you want them for a specific deadline, convo me, and I will let you know how soon I can make and ship.

Please write me your shipping adress if its doesn't match with your address available on Etsy! It's important, otherwise I will ship to your Etsy address! Thank you!

I do not take the responsibilities for customs fees.

Just for information, not guaranteed - Based on my experiences, delivery needs (after despatchment):
- within Europe 1-2 weeks (but sometimes three business days)
- to Southeastern Asia 8-10 business days
- to the USA and Canada 2-3 weeks (but sometimes 8 business days)
- to Australia 2-3 weeks (but sometimes 8 business days)

In some uncommon cases it happens that delivery needs 30 days - based on my feedbacks it looks to be due to customs processes.

Refunds

If you would like to cancel your order after the receiption of the ordered item then you can cancel it within 14 days. In this case please send the clean and undamaged item back to me on your own expense, and I will refund your payment (incuding the original shipping fee) to you within 14 days.
