Hi, You have some neat stuff and I have told friends about your merchandise. Also I like supporting your good cause. Keep the faith and fine intentions in this cockamamie world.
Very sincerely, ~ Kathryn in snowy NH

Thanks for keeping me informed. PLEASE, PLEASE, DO NOT delete the sabertooth tiger from the order! By all means, yes, proceed as planned. I have a devastated two-year-old and a beagle that is in a lot of hot water for chewing on the sabertooth tiger we ordered from you last December! (I will let the dog know it will only be a couple of extra days and he'll be back in good graces with the boss again). I appreciate you letting us know!
Again, thank you. ~ Barb in Illinois

see our online gift shop! You can also order the gecko online from this link. When you get to the animal jewelry page, just scroll down and type its description in the order box. We take most credit cards and PayPal. Want to see one more uniquely painted gecko pin? Here you go! Or design your own colors. Simple color descriptions cost no more than the pre-painted jewelry. Super-cusom work from a photo is also possible but may cost a few dollars more. E-mail us for info!
Black jaguar: 5 left, US $14.00
Our two beautiful plastic snarling jaguars have been discontinued by the manufacturer. They are made of strong, durable PVC and are so nicely shaped and detailed that we consider them among our "museum-quality" animals, and we hate to see them disappear. They make wonderful props for school reports and projects, children's educational toys, additions to your animal collection, or gifts for a cat fancier. Both varieties have been selling fast. The quantities in stock are as of the date and time of this post, though I'll try to update as needed. Buy through the links above or call (503) 325-3179 (Oregon, USA, West Coast Time Zone).

It's going to take some time to get them all online (and probably re-design the animal jewelry portion of the web site), so I'll continue featuring some of them here as I take their photos. If you don't see the animal you want, please ask! New painted animal jewelry designs are being made every day! You can also call us (West Coast time in the US) at: (503) 325-3179. Talk to you soon!

Hedgehogs are incredibly popular right now. Our Plumpee used to sell out as fast as we could get him in, but recently he's become somewhat of an underHOG. His value has not waned, but we've priced him more competitively for faster sales. Once he is gone, he's gone forever. Take one home to your favorite hedgehog fan or add him to your collection now! You can see all of our hedgehog toys and gifts here!

Our next most-sold toy in January was this unusual blue-gray plastic alligator. Its color is a bit weird, but the details are very nice. If the color is an issue, paint him green!
Check out this and other more naturally-colored toy alligators and crocodiles in Tapir and Friends online store.

Awesome service! Thanks, Sue! ~ Shelly in Texas

The butterfly, cat with kittens, pointer hunting dog, dolphins leaping, and white mouse are only a few of the hundreds we have in stock today.
Each piece is cast in pewter and hand painted. They can be used as pins for hats, lapels, or . . . it's up to you. They can also be used as larger, flamboyant tie tacks. In addition, many designs come in a smaller traditional tie tac size.
All pieces have two stick pins with pinch clasps on the back so they don't rotatate and have to be twisted back into position. Orient them the way you like and don't think about it again. Painted pins are $29.00 each (any design); the same styles are available in various metal finishes including natural pewter and a variety of metal plate finishes (bronze, gold, copper, silver). Not every pin is available in every finish. Each item should be considered a limited edition, although we have more of some than of others. Order now for Valentine's Day (503) 325-3179. You can also order online at Tapir and Friends. We ship same day. Ask for overnight shipping if needed.

With ice melting in the Arctic, the walruses are having a hard time. Below are a couple of links where you can read about these massive, unique animals. The Washington Post article describes one of the reasons the calves of these animals are currently in danger. The Sea World article gives about as much information on walruses as you could hope to find. Use Google's image search to find some fantastic photos of walruses.
