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.

This extremely authentic-looking Whale Shark figurine is of no exception, displaying an extremely well-crafted body with its enormous mouth wide open; completed with its trademark patterned streaks and spots.

Like all PAPO figurines, this Whale Shark is made from non-toxic plastic and is BPA and phthalate-free, making it a safe choice for play even with our younger ones.


• Most sharks have 20 to 30 rows of pearly whites, but whale sharks have more than 300 rows. That means a whale shark has 3000 individual teeth, each one about the size of a match head.

• Covered in hard, tooth-like scales called denticles, the hide on a whale shark's back can be extremely tough and measure up to a crazy 10cm thick.

• Like human fingerprints, no two whale sharks share the exact same patterned bodies. Just behind their gills, every single one has a totally unique arrangement of pale, white spots. Today, this fun fact is helping biologists keep tabs on individual sharks—with some help from a secret weapon inspired by NASA.

Dimension Approx. 23.4 x 10.6 x 6 cm
