'Finding Dory' Figural KeyringsMonogram International will be debuting its line of Finding Dory figural keychains as displayed here when the New York International Toy Fair kicks off Saturday, February 13, 2016.

In addition to featuring Marlin, Dory and newly introduced pals Hank the Septopus, Destiny the Whale Shark and Bailey the Beluga Whale, we also see returning favorites Squirt, Sheldon and Tad (although Monogram’s product description names Pearl).

However, seen here but not named (presumably identified by ‘Exclusive A’ and ‘Exclusive B’) are what appear to be a sea otter — who has been briefly mentioned in the past — as well as a grumpy looking sea lion.
