Started long time ago, but took a while,...
Very endangered due to oil platforms and netfishing close to the beach,..and hunted by bottlenose dolphins and grey seals.To me, one of the most charismatic cetaceans.

Great work! It looks very good and I like the species choice Smile It is strange indeed that this common species wasn't ever represented in a toy form. They are so lovely.
I have seen one porpoise on the beach 3 weeks ago but sadly it was dead Sad

Everything that looks somewhat like a dolphin is a dolphin, that's the reason why so many of these species are not represented in toy shape. Curiously, bottlenose dolphins kill these creatures not to eat them but to prevent the competition for food. Our cute dolphin friends have also their dark side but that's Nature and we have to understand.
It is nice to see you, your talent and good ideas being presented here again. Very Happy

Porpoises are just the cutest cetaceans that ever existed!
I have photographed and interacted with some Harbor Porpoises in a dolphinarium in the Netherlands.
(The interactions where only from the side and not hand on hand.)

You did an amazing job! Such a cutie! <3

Always wondered why the big companies did not bring out any porpoise...

Thank you! Indeed, it could be such an easy way e.g. for the german Big Player, to make it better known among children and parents. And it's so easy to make look cute,..just by making a realistic looking figurine,..!
