New (familiar) inflatable whale from inflatableworld.de

Holy moly! It appears inflatableworld.de is working on a 3 meters/9.8 feet/118 inches long whale. According to the image, it might be available in early 2012. A member in our forum said he was told to look for new toys in their lineup in January. (The plural is interesting, wonder what else is coming!) There’s no information on a price yet but it looks like two different versions will be available, opaque/matte and transparent/shiny.

I’m curious as to what this will do to people’s profitable eBay sales of the old-style 84″ Intex Whale of similar design. I have a hunch if people continue to sell them that the price won’t be impacted too much, considering it’s pretty much a rare/collectible item now.

One good thing about the design is the Intex blue whale has a bit of a dip in the “chest” region that was really prone to seam-splits and judging by the pictures from inflatableworld.de, their model does not seem to have that fault point. This is something to look forward to!

    I saw neither these nor the dragons on their website.
    I hope I didn’t miss out.
    I also wish they came without the handles like in the picture. :3
    I would like to buy several if that was the case.

  3. You can email them to order the toys, I believe they still have some available. They were going to put them in their online store once they upgraded the store itself, but that doesn’t seem to have happened yet.
