PostSubject: TOP 10 of the most popular company websites!   Sat Jul 12, 2014 3:19 am

Using a web tool, I tried to find which are the 10 most popular company websites.
This ranking is based on visits from last 3 months and only companies with dedicated sections on oour forum were ranked.
I think the results are very curious and I found interesting to share it with you.
Remember that some companies are much more than manufacturers of toy animal figures.
I wanted to know your opinions about these results.... anyone is surprised? Laughing

1st. Takara Tomy - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
2nd. Bandaï - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
3rd. Schleich - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
4th. Safari Ltd - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
5th. Kitan - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

From those we call "major brands", almost a technic draw between Schleich and Safari. Check the ranking below:

I am glad you've found it interesting and actually Bullyland also surprised me in a positive way.
Please check below the links to English versions of Takara and Bandaï:

Thanks for this Rogério  Very Happy 

It is indeed very interesting. My biggest surprise was to discover that Kaiyodo has a lower rank than Kitan  Shocked

Very interesting but on Bandai website and Takara Tomy website I can't even find animal figures scratch

It's also interesting to see Science and Nature website being more popular than Bullyland Smile No Papo in top 10 is also a bit surprising Smile

Laughing Laughing We always need to check these rankings as a point of curiousity once there are many variables.
Toy animal figures are sometimes a minor line in some companies as it happens with Bandaï and Takara for example. Also, some companies have more than one website and these data is only to their main online platform.
As I told, I only used companies with sections on our forum but for example, Playmobil website would be 3rd in this top and Lego, by far, the first. Though, these companies were not contemplated.
Schleich and Safari have almost the same numbers, considering that Safari is almost only animal toy figures and that Schleich as many important non animal lines, it was fair if Safari was considered the number 1 in toy animal figures, though it cannot be measured.
Science & Nature was really a surprise once its main market is a relatively small one and the company is not widely known. :)

Very interesting, thank you Roger! Very Happy I would be interested to see if the Peter Stone site gets more traffic than Breyer. Wink

You're welcome, Leeann! Very Happy Peter Stone has very discret numbers, slightly more than Mojö Fun and quite far from Breyer. Though, exactly as it happens with Mojö, we are talking about websites under construction, I checked both...

stoneponys is the one they are using now, there was a problem with the old stonehorses website and a very ugly "conflict" with the person holding the password, it is a complicated story, but I think now we are stuck with the not-user-friendly stoneponys site. Sad Thanks again Roger!

Very interesting, like everyone else I'm also a little shocked that Takara Tomy and Bandai are the top two  Shocked

Thanks Roger!
I was not aware of many of the sites mentioned at all :)
Japanese sites are VERY hard for me to navigate and understand.

Thank you Roger.

What is more surprising is that they're far more active than others we know. The difference is huge! Shocked

You're welcome Arye, you can find here the links to English versions or visiting Toy Animal Wiki. You can also use a translator tool, all browsers have it, not very good with Japanese language but enough to help us having an overview. Very Happy
