Type of Material?

So I've purchased a few models like this for my son. I'm trying to figure out what type of material they're made of. It seems to be a soft plastic, with rubbery type qualities. It bends, but I'm sure it could be damaged if bent too far. Does anyone know what material this could be?


TPU, TPE or possibly Nylon would probably be the closest printable to being flexible. But with a molded part, it's more then likely a rubber hybrid.

Is that what a lot of cell phone cases are made from?

most flexible/clear cell phone cases are TPU
