Turtles are cool. No, we’re not talking turtles of the teenage ninja, pizza-eating variety, but sea turtles. They don’t need Vanilla Ice to market them. They’re fascinating creatures. Lots of people may like to have a sea turtle as a pet but, there is a bit of up keep. After you read a little about sea turtles, you may understand why having a plush turtle is the way to go.

And sea turtles are cooler than terrestrial (land) turtles because they live in the sea. That’s why they have those long flippers instead of legs. See how the hind flippers are shorter? They use their long, paddle-like front flippers to swim, ‘flapping’ them in the water, while they use the smaller ones to steer themselves. Most sea turtles have shells like land turtles and tortoises, but one species, the leatherback, actually has in place of a shell, thousands of tiny bones that lie just under the skin. The leatherback is also the largest species, growing up to between four and six feet in length. Sea turtles give birth on sandy beaches. A pregnant mama will scuttle up onto the sand and dig a hole a few feet deep, into which she lays her eggs. After a while, the eggs hatch, and the little beasties eventually find their way to the ocean. They usually do this at night, because during the day, they’re vulnerable from predators like seagulls. When and if they reach the water, they tend to hang around in waters full of sea grass and coral – the better to hide from nasties who will turn them into an hors d’oeuvre (c’mon, they’re too small for a full meal).

Melissa and Doug return with this fantastic plush sea turtle. This cool dude is 8 inches tall and a whopping 28 inches wide and 28 inches long. He’s not as big as the real thing, but no one said you can’t pretend! This stuffed animal is made of 100% kid-friendly materials, he is as safe as he is durable.
