Igarashi Whale

I'm afraid that I can't tell you much about this toy. I originally thought it was made by Sevylor, however all the print on its underside is in Chinese save for the name and logo of a company called Igarashi.

However, this is a fantastic toy because of the choice of vinyl; it's a brilliant, almost mirror-shine glossy black. The material feels slippery and soft to the touch and reacts very well to a little warmth. This is a real prize in my collection, perhaps not out of rarity or other collector metrics, but simply because it's made of such wonderful vinyl.
