Fully Articulated

Our creations are made to for fidgeting sensory play. You can move them in your hands, wrap them around your fingers or position them to sit on your shoulder.

Each link is connected independently into a chain that makes the whole creation. Even the wings, if they are present, can move freely.

3D Printing Miracle

Each model is crafted using special plastic called Polylactic AcidPLA.

PLA stands as a marvel in the world of bioplastics, uniquely boasting the dual benefits of being both biosourced and biodegradable.

PLA is made from renewable resources like corn and sugar cane. It's the magic of fermentation, transforming starch or sugar drawn from these earth-friendly sources, that gives birth to PLA.

Symphony Of Colors

With the exception of the expressive hand-painted eyes, all the colors come directly from the material. There is nothing to scrape off or fade on the sun. Your colorful friend will stay shiny and beautiful.

All our creations are made with love and care.

A wonderful desk pet from a wonderful seller!

I had a couple of issues during ordering and delivery and the folks I spoke to were super helpful and understanding. When it finally arrived it was absolutely worth the wait. It's become a staple part of my desk and it is a beautiful creation that I am endlessly delighted by. Cannot recommend these wonderful folk enough :^)

Do they need to be assembled?

How durable are these articulated creations?

We put love and care into each of our creations. They are made to be durable for fidgeting.

Keep in mind that general rule applies that smaller creatures (like small baby dragons) are more delicate because of the size of the pieces and require more care during play. Regular and larger sizes are recommended for more damage resistance.

PLA is a very stable material, and so it is quite resistant to chemicals such as acetones or alcohols. Very powerful solvents such as dichloromethane are required to dissolve PLA, so everyday chemicals will not make a dent.

How can I repair my hurt plastic mate?

In case that your plastic friend gets hurt, you can use regular super glue which works quite well with the material.

If needed, feel free to contact us for any help or advice.

Do I have to pay any import fees?

Please note that Turtle Creations doesn't handle foreign taxes and duties for international orders if there are any. These are payable by you upon arrival, as per your local customs regulations. Check with your customs office before ordering to ensure no surprises!

What are the 3D prints made from?

Each model is crafted using special plastic called Polylactic AcidPLA.

PLA stands as a marvel in the world of bioplastics, uniquely boasting the dual benefits of being both biosourced and biodegradable.

It is also non-toxic, so you don't have to worry about using one of your dragons as, for example, an aquarium decoration for your fish friends.
