Toys are also made of polymers. As I said before these polymers do not necessarily come from the sea but these kinds of animals do and they can be found in other areas of our park. This picture is showing the stuffed version of some of the various animals found here at the park. The plush animals are stuffed with a polymer called polyurethane. Polyurethane is a foamy material. The outside material of the stuffed animals could be made up of a mixture of polyester and cotton.
Some other toys that can be found in our gift shop are plastic animals such as sharks, whales, seals and dolphins. Some are made of a hard plastic while others are a little more flexible and easier to maneuver when you are trying to scare your little sister. The type of plastic used in these toys is called polyisoprene, which is rubber.
