Bat skeletons are made out of plastic and have been painted. This is a long process, therefore bats will be shipping out mid-end June, 2018. There are a limited amount at the moment, but I will have another release if these sell out. Bats come with strong string, ready to be hung. I have 2 sizes available 11 inches and 22 inches long, the larger one is more expensive to ship due to its large size. This listing is for the smaller bat, 11 inches. All sales are final.
