Dolphins are small to medium-sized cetaceans related to whales and porpoises. Dolphins are intelligent, playful animals, and you can bring home a set of detailed miniatures to play with in this TOOB®! This set features 10 highly detailed dolphin figures including a bottlenose dolphin, striped dolphin, Atlantic spotted dolphin, long-beaked dolphin, Irrawaddy dolphin, Atlantic white-sided dolphin, southern right whale dolphin, hourglass dolphin, Indo-Pacific humpbacked dolphin, and white-beaked dolphin.
History: Dolphins, like whales, are cetaceans – mammals that evolved and adapted to a full aquatic lifestyle. There are 40 species of dolphin spread throughout the oceans, and even freshwater rivers in some cases. Dolphins are known for their intelligence and their wide range of vocalizations which includes a variety of clicks, whistles and other noises.
Characteristics: These figures are professionally painted and full of scientifically accurate detail to help children learn while having fun! Each dolphin toy includes distinctive features unique to its species including body shape and color pattern. While many dolphins share a similar overall body type, there are exceptions including the Irrawaddy dolphin, which lacks the long beak typically found on dolphins, and the southern right whale dolphin, which has no dorsal fin on its back. These figures are perfect Montessori toys for lessons and activities about life in the ocean!
Size: 1.5 inches long, 1.5 inches wide, and 13 inches tall, this TOOB® is a little larger than the size of a standard American ruler and features 10 dolphin figures that range from 2.5 to 4 inches long.
