Thanks to LeeAnn, I have recently become the happy owner of this beautyful set from Safari  cheers 
It has item no 298429, and is marked 2008, but the only one of my (few) cataloges, which contains this set (Wils Safari Sea Life series), is the one from 2007  scratch 
Does anybody know when it was launced and/or retired ?

A very charming box and content, I think   Very Happy

Congrats! I have this particular set also and what I first noticed is the loggerhead sea turtle in this set is the same mold as 2013's baby green sea turtle. I don't remember when it was released, but both TGF Toys and H and H Winners' Circle say the release year is 2009 scratch I can't find any info as to when (or if) it was retired.

That's an interersting set from our US hunter Leeann! Very Happy
I didn't know also about it, maybe we can ask Safari in their FB page?
What I remember from the begining of the forum is how much you love turtles. Very Happy

It was retired last year. I held off stocking it, & I wound up waiting too long.  So I  know it was retired last year. It wad also in thr retailer catalogs for 2012 & 2013, if I remember correctly. Can't remember much beyond that, tho.

I'm guessing that the boxed/gift sets didn't sell very well?
