This one-of-a-kind, handmade Whale Shark person is balanced on his tail and wears his customary mantle of stars. He is sculpted from a custom blend of micaceous polymer that has a subtle marbling and sparkle, meticulously spotted with an acrylic paint, and varnished with a satin polymer varnish. His silvery eyes are hemalyke and he is around 3-inches tall.

Whalesharks are the largest fish species in existence. They are an ancient species of graceful, gentle, slow-moving sharks found in warm oceans who feed primarily on plankton.

He will arrive in a handsome gift box, ready for giving or receiving. All of my poupettes are stamped with the Bonjour Poupette mark on the underside and include a descriptive card. I am always happy to include a gift card by request.

Frequently asked questions about BonjourPoupette

I accept a limited number of custom orders every month. I currently have a three month turnaround for custom orders. I require payment to schedule the shipping date for a custom order and I send photos when it is completed.
I am happy to offer a payment plan by request. Contact me for more information.
My figurines are made of non-toxic polymer and are not painted or varnished, as the pigment is permanently suspended in the polymer. Therefore, they can stand directly on a cake and won't be damaged by, or damage your cake. They are waterproof, and can be carefully hand-washed with a gentle soap as needed. For minor repairs, I recommend using a cyanoacrylate (super glue) gel for minor repairs (I prefer Loctite Gel). If a figurine arrives damaged from shipping, I will repair or replace the figurine depending on the amount of damage. Simply let me know and ship it back to me, preferably in its original packaging. I'll repair or replace the figurine as soon as possible.

IMPORTANT: My next shipping date is Thursday, September 1st. Otherwise, I ship all orders (with the exception of custom orders) within 1-3 business days of purchase. If you are on a tight deadline - let me know and I can usually ship the next day. I ship Mondays and Thursdays (with the exception of USPS holidays) unless otherwise noted in my shop announcement, at the top of my shop's homepage: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BonjourPoupette.
Shipping to U.S. Addresses takes from 2-5 days, depending on the shipping mode selected at checkout. All of my shipments include a USPS Tracking Number which is automatically sent via e-mail as soon as the package has shipped. Priority Mail packages are automatically insured up to $100. Signature Confirmation is required for purchases over $50 and shipping to apartment buildings to prevent theft. Priority Mail Express Shipping is available at checkout and takes 1-2 business days to most destinations.
You will receive an invoice/receipt for your order through Etsy. I only include paper invoices for international orders. If you would like a paper invoice, just let me know and I'll be happy to include one.
All customs forms are accurately labeled 'Merchandise' with the actual cost of the item in compliance with international law. Delivery to addresses outside of the U.S. usually takes between 2-6 weeks, depending on the type of shipping selected at checkout. Be advised that actual transit times vary by destination and are not guaranteed. In my experience, parcels shipped to countries in Central America, South America and Africa can take up to four months to arrive. For these countries, I highly recommend purchasing Express Mail shipping at checkout, which will expedite shipping.
The best way to communicate with me is through Etsy Conversations, rather than email or telephone. I check messages every day and always send replies within 24 hours.
