Tiger is a chain of stores from Denmark selling all sorts of oranaments, home trinkets, homewares and other related items.  They also have toys and the other day I came across a random large elephant model.  I didnt buy it but I thought it was interesting because the details are really good on the face and head overall.  Unfortunately the rest of the body let's it down a bit and I would say this is about the size of the Safari Wildlife wonders range.  It is made of plastic but a soft one that can be squeezed but nonetheless I love the paintwork and sculpting details on the head.  The model is large, light weight and made of soft hollow plastic

Thought you might enjoy a few pictures.  It is on sale for £7.00 and all stored across Europe have the same stock so if anyone wants one then check out a Tiger store near you (the model is about 10 euros).  I cant help but think this elephant is adorable!

Great  pictures, Numaan  Very Happy 

I saw them too when I did some christmas shopping in town. They had several farm animals as well, and as far as I remember the price was lower than the 7 £ , - VERY unusual in expensive Denmark !!!! cheers 

PS, "Tiger" is a play with words in Denmark. It refers to a "Tier", which is slang for a 10 DKK - coin (app 1,5 Euros). I think they got the idea from the 1-dollar shops in USA Wink

Great link Christophe! This company makes some really cool models, I really like the 'Marine Life - vinyl Models', particularly the Polar Bear and the Beluga, wonderful! I wonder if they are the same size as the elephant? Does anyone collect these models?
