PostSubject: Lakeshore: Playvisions + others (club earth?)   Tue Jun 03, 2014 9:59 am

Some time ago I got these very nice boxes with animals. The frogs are Playvisions, the others are not. The seller had more lose playvisions without box and sold them under "Lakeshore animals", too. It were PV beetles, wasps, whales, sharks and dolphins (and he/she said to have another set with lizards but didn't want to sell that one). So I assume they were sold in those Lakeshore boxes, too.

I've never heard of that one before and wonder if anyone could tell something about it.
The butterflies are very nicely made and they have their common names on the back of the wings; I am wondering if they might be club earth? Due to the back numbers they are a selection out of at least 12.
Also the spiders might be club earth. They look similar to the PV spiders, but the material is softer and the models are flatter. I have seen them in a different forum under "PlayVisions" but they are not marked with a brand, only with name and number (maybe 12 different ones, too). On the last picture you see the lakeshore ones left, the PV spiders right.

I'd like to have more of those boxes, I just love the different and often so enchanting ways of selling Playvision sets, from unexpected (and often never heard before companies - see Moses Verlag).

Wow! Awesome find! cheers

I immediately thought of the brand Lakeshore that makes model horses. But I don't think this is the same company.

We have a Lakeshore Learning center 15 minutes away from my home.  affraid Great finds! Lakeshore only has a giant bucket of various Nayab animals for 50$!!!!!!!!!! Ridiculous! That's all they carry now. Sad
