Prices are very expensive though for any brands and in all stores. Anybody from Singapore knows of any other stores? I'd love to know!!
@NandO : can't you find any in Bali? Do you have to go to Jakarta to find the Schleich?

Welcome here!

I also mostly buy everything online.

There are Schleich models in various stores here and there.

Safari models are available in a different range of stores.

I used to see Papo occasionally, and will still sometimes see their dinosaurs, but not so much.

Mojo Fun and CollectA (and Bullyland), I have never seen any models by these companies in a physical, "brick and mortar" store.

@LeeAnn, Thank you very much for the Welcome. However, I'm not really a collector like most of the people here  Embarassed . I buy them because my kids love, love to play with them!!! I love them too, but mostly as decoration. I put them at various corners of my home (the deer family stay in the kitchen counter behind the basket of onions, the buffalo near the rice, elephants on the bathtub ledge. Very Happy )

Don't worry, you'll find yourself placing some animals on a shelf and telling your kids, "No, these are my animals!" Laughing Wink

Interesting topic!

I also live in an European capital and mostly only Schleich is available here. They're available everywhere.

Occasionally some other figures from different brands can be found, never the full line. For example, some Bullyland forest animals have been sold here.
Some China-animals are available here, usually sold in bags containing many animals. Except for our zoo that seems to sell Nayab figures (for quite expensive price imo).

As for the new releases, the only brand we can guarantee that we'll get is Schleich.

And now the CollectA displays collapsed and are replaced by Schleich :face:

That happened to a toy store chain here a few years ago. The toy store tried to sell CollectA and Schleich simultaneously, but the CollectA figures suddenly disappeared.
Back that time I didn't collect modern animals, only dinosaurs.

There used to be a shop where I live just minutes away of a walk where you could find a variety of Papo figures. Including the dinosaurs and wildlife. Unfortunately it has since closed. Very disappointing since I now have to go out of town to find them. Sad Locally, the only brands available are Schleich. But at least with a good variety. I have never seen any Safari Ltd wildlife in person and I once saw some CollectA figures at Toys R Us in a box, but have never seen them again. Bullyland can be found by going out of town from Swansea to Cardiff but it's just cartoon characters, no wildlife or dinosaurs which is what I look for. Breyer can also be found in a disappointingly low number in Cardiff as well. Apart from Schleich and the occasional Papo model dinossur (unless it's retired) I buy everything online. I once went to the Utterly Horses Hullabaloo in Newmarket, Suffolk which I had an amazing time and brought back a massive haul of Breyers.

Moscow, Russia
Schleich: very big choice in two shops and almost all in Internet-shops. Schleich is EVERYWHERE in Russia!
Papo: the same shops that I can find Schleich, not big choice, but we have two internet-shops with almost all.
Mojö: I have one shop near my home. Not big choice, bad quality (scratches, broken ears), but we have, I think, half of them in internet-shop.
Collecta: big amount of wildlife, antelops, but there are no new horses.
Safari: I have one shop near my home, but there is no big choice.
Bullyland: only internet-shops, I don't know how much. I'm not interested.
Many-many chinese brands, including Nayab.

Terra by Battat at Target
Safari Ltd at Michaels
Mojo, Safari Ltd, Papo at Hobby Lobby

JoAnn's and Michael's have some Safari, my closest Walmart has an entire 4 foot section with Schleich- none of the others I go in have that, and it's considered the ghetto Walmart. scratch Target's is nearby, though I don't often go there- you say that's Battat? Same with Toys R Us. Hobby Lobby is about 20 miles away as is Tractor Supply, so I don't know their brands- though I've gotten Breyers at the TS. A nearby high end tack shop has lots of Breyers and some Peter Stones. There is a nearby high end shopping area that has a toy store with models, I've been and drooled at them but don't remember the brand. A nearby flea market has a Safari vendor. I'm 50 miles from Disney, Sea World and Universal for the character stuff. Beyond that, there's the cheap kid's toys Chinese stuff and whatever comes up used.

Do you want me to look for something for you? I don't mind buying and shipping internationally, if you don't mind paying for it. International shipping can be HORRIBLE! Laughing

Schleich: lots of stores and most feed shops
Safari Ltd: Hobby Lobby, Jo-Ann (Toobs only), Michaels (best selection)
Papo: Hobby Lobby (very few), and possibly a toy store 70 miles from me
Mojo Fun: Hobby Lobby (few)
CollectA: none
Terra by Battat: Target
Breyer: Tack shops, large feed stores

I can't wait to visit my favorite toy shops in Alaska next time I visit my family. I had no idea what wonderful selections they had until I moved away!

Here in Leiden (the Netherlands) there is one shop which sells Schleich-S and another which sells Schleich-S and Papo (and some of the minis by Safari Ltd.) (and ofcourse we have some big toy stores which sell Schleich-S, but I never go there because all these children mutilate all those poor animals and I can't watch it D': )
I know some zoos sell CollectA (for instance Artis in Amsterdam and Blijdorp in Rotterdam).

That's it for me ):

Schleich are every where in Britain - Toys R Us and a local toy shop 4 miles from where I live.

Other plastic animals to be found are “Johny No-names” - ones made in China by an unidentified maker.
