Where can I find a stuffed Chambered Nautilus

My girlfriend has a birthday coming up. She has a huge stuffed animal collection that includes, randomly enough, an almost complete set of cephalopods. Yes, we're strange like that.

I say almost complete, because she's missing the Chambered Nautilus. Other than that, she has all of the major ones (finding the stuffed cuttlefish was pretty difficult too). I'd like to get the Chambered Nautilus for her, but I can't find it anywhere. I've visited the Baltimore Aquarium, and searched online a lot, and no dice. Anyone have suggestions?

Here's a Wikihow on how to make stuffed animals. Link.

Folkmanis made a finger puppet set that included a chambered nautilus. It's been discontinued but maybe it will turn up more easily now that you have a manufacturer's name.

P.S. Found a vendor with it in stock. Just a random result off Google, so I can't speak for the vendor.

Here's a handmade one on Etsy. Or what about a hermit crab in a (kind of) nautilus shell? Otherwise, if you have enough time, sappymoosetree does commissioned stuffed animals.

It appears that you can purchase the finger puppet set that jamaro suggested here.

Here is a really nice one. Maybe a seahorse to go with it?

Google "nautilus shape pillow" there are some less expensive ones than the above linked one.
