The custom-made packaging can be folded into an easel-style card or stand, perfect for keeping this little treasure on display.

Please ensure that Captain Retro is removed from any clothing before washing. He’s unusually hydrophobic for a platypus!

Please also note that every sheet of veneer is unique and as such, your purchase may differ from the example pictured in terms of the natural grain of the wood.
