I have this cow! I got it a long time ago! I also had one grazing (for sure) and a calf? I think.
it was one of my first and I use to take it every where with me.
the only thing is I have the black on it repainted again. Razz

Nice that you still have this cow Widukind!
I have quit a few from them, as i had Hong Kong copies of Britains long before i had the real Britains models.
I have so many of my models from my childhood, but one i want to share with you, is this Scottish collie, one the most right side of the pic.
The 2 other ones on the left and in the middle are later copies, on which you can see, that the mold was wearing out, and that they lost detail for that reason.
The early Hong Kong and Singapore copies had the same detail as the originals from several brands.

Hey all!  cheers 

I don't know if there's a topic like this allready, but i was just curious about this.

We all sure have big collections, or they are just not big yet, but im sure they are all with great figures!  I love you 
but, we all had to start somewhere  scratch and i tought this was a fun topic to start, so my question is: what was your first animal figure? the one that let you start with this hobby?

mine is this one:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

her name is Vidar, she is the chestnut mare by schleich. I once was ill, and the boyfriend of my mom stopped by that day, and gave me to her as a gift because I was ill.  I love you 
I looked at her as a very beautiful toy horse that time, and I played with her alot (thats why she is so damged) but now she is a very important part of my collection!  I love you 

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

so, whats your very first animal figure??  I love you

Nice story Dust! Very Happy She's beautiful! sunny 
My story is a bit similar… I started my collection when I was living in South and I had a summer job in some farm… I was picking up strawberries every **** morning! :DSo, I got my salary and I wen to the mall. Well, there was a gray, metallic shelf filled with beautiful animals. Of course the horses catch my eye and I chose  this one:

I went back to home and put it on my desk. In those years I played with it many times but he's still here, on my shelf with him friends. I love him = D

Hmm, I'm not sure what my very first animal figurine was. But I do know which was my very first Schleich I got (knowing it was Schleich-S, because I already had some minis and such, from which I didn't know it were Schleich-S back than): the 1997 black and white rabbit (#13121). I don't have any picture of my own model, but it's this one:

Also not much idea - I was playing with them and collecting them since I was a small child, some 55+ years ago! In my earliest memories, I already had quite a lot.

A few of the probable oldest (in my collection since I was a small kid) are in this photo I recently posted in the T&B/FGT/B&S thread, of lead FGT poultry:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]" />

The ones I had back then were green coop in top row, 1st white sitting hen in 2nd row, and the tatty white and brown hens, 1st, 2nd & 7th items in 3rd row. There was also a reddish brown standing hen by Cherilea, which is in the Cherilea thread.

We had (real) hens in the garden, and both grandmothers and several aunts/uncles had chickens too, so I've liked and been interested in chooks for as long as I can remember.

I remember when I went to the dentist I got to pick out one little toy out of the toy chest and of course I always chose the animal figures!Razz However the very first true animal figures I got was the Schleich African elephants Very Happy

I know it was an orca, I'm pretty sure it was the Monterey Bay Aquarium one:

It looked pretty similar to the one above, much different then the one they make now:

Haha our dentist had the Schleich-S minis as well. That always was the only fun at going to the dentist :') Now I'm too old to get something, and besides, they haven't got the Schleich-S minis anymore for years. But I always got the minis my brother had chosen, and I found them all back, fortunately! cheers

I dont remember with was  actually my first figure in my collection.
Ofcourse there were the two bears Britains Zoo, when i was 4-ish, i think.
But back then i didn't not collect animals as i do now.
Those Britains i only found back many many years later,
when my mum was moving some stuff around the attic.

I only know i have had a these two figures for a longggg time.

For me it was my grand champions it was the tersk mare:
I named her first kiss (i dont know why kiss bit she's called ''first''' most of the time)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Its not the most beautifull picture of her but it's fine.
I got her for christmas under our tree when i was first chrismas day (i don't know how to call it in Englisch)

Mij first schleich was a littlebit different. My ''besy'' friend from hischool had some beautifull schleich. but back then i dind't new it was schleich!
When Grand champions started to dissapeare slowly i couldn't find some horse that i likes so mutch as de GC's. Schleich wasn't so populaire in NL and it wasn't aveluble in store/shop.

Years later when my internet compasion voor grand chapions opent again because of al the internet sellers i bought my last tree GC:

Then i found some schleich in a toyshop i fel in love with this one:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
She has the name flabehoppe because (accoording to google) it means ''horse'' in her country's languatch (if i had coppiëd it correctly)

Now she is one of many, and many more to came. Stil a special place in the heart Very Happy I love you

I didn't have a 'first' animal figurine as my older brother collected them before me, however my first schleich was the Tennessee Walking Horse stallion (#13631) and he has had a very special place in my heart since! I love you
