I live in Northern Virignia,within the United States. I'm about an hour or so from Washington DC.

Safari Ltd: Michael's, A.C.Moore
Schleich: Walmart (Limited Selection),Toys R Us (Larger Selection), Tractor Supply Co (Larger Selection)
Mojo Fun: Have to go about an hour or so to get to a Hobby Lobby store,none in local area.
Papo: Fantasy Line Only,nothing else- A.C.Moore, Toys R US
Collect A: None
Bullyland: None
Terra/Battat: Target
No-Name/China: Walmart,Target,Toys R US,Michael's,Dollar Tree

Safari Ltd. is the most common in my are as there are two different Micheal's stores right near by. Not all Walmarts near me carry Schleich. For some reason the Walgreen's near me carries one type of Schleich foal but absolutely nothing else?

I was looking at the CollectAs (again) here and thinking on the Papo figure I want, and got to wondering what brands we can find new easily where we live?

Where I live, there are lots of Safari and Schleich dealers (Toys R Us, Walmart, Michaels, JoAnns, Hobby Lobby, Rural King, Tractor Supply and the few rare independents) and one Mojo Fun (Hobby Lobby) for the bigger brands, Battat/Terra (Targets), Breyers (various equine/livestock supply), some Chap Mei (Toys R Us) and Yowies (Walmart, Walgreens, JoAnns and various mostly grocers).  I'm an hour or less from SeaWorld, and while I can't afford to go to the theme parks their figures can often be found secondhand locally. Oh, and during the holidays Tractor Supply and Rural King have New Ray manufactured playsets.

What about you?

I don't know a lot about them, but they can often be found at the flea markets that sell secondhand goods (many around here sell only cheap new stuff, sort of big dollar stores in bazaar form) and at thrift stores that deign to sell toys. Pretty much all that I've seen has been sea turtles and not quite as many sharks; I do have a manatee and I *think* I've seen a few cetaceans which would make sense.

I'll ask my teenage daughter if any of her friends work there. Try to get some inside knowledge.
Edit she says no
