PostSubject: Tiptoi Models in a store...I bought the Impala   Wed Oct 29, 2014 5:00 pm

I know there was some old thread about these models which I only discovered today but I wanted to post photos of the Tiptoi models I came across in a shop in Berlin recently.  They caught me  by surprise and looked great until, upon closer inspection I saw the yellow tiptoi flat surface on each model which hides an electronic tag.  It does take away from the model somewhat but I still had to buy the impala model.

They have a rhino which was not on display but I think that looks the best in the range and I attach some images for reference.  I wonder if Tiptoi will expand their range?  and of all the species to make a black-faced impala is impressive! I had hoped CollectA would make one someday!

Thanks for the photos and congrats on the Impala! Do you have closer photos of the trotting zebra by any chance?

Tiptoi has so much nice models... those Zebra's.. I love you  It's a shame they put the orange dot on the animals, That's the only reason for me to not buy some Rolling Eyes

Congrats on your Impala!! bounce

I'm not a big fan of them, but I'm pretty sure that they will expand their range, since this month they have a new hippo and a gorilla. Very Happy

Yes I forgot to include the link to the zebra pic. I have added it now in the original list, take a look. These pictures are all I have. The Zebra was cute and tempting. The Impala and Zebra are slightly smaller in scale to Schleich but will work nonetheless......

Those crocodiles are grand, and the golden retrievers are looking very nice too. Thanks for the pictures - I'd never known of this brand before. How I wish I could come by that croc locally.

Ravensburg is great model. I have some of them. The defect is the flat area on each model. But I still love them.

Hi guys

I know the flat yellow section is a pain for on a display shelf we simply display them another way. I for sure really want to get that impressive looking Rhino but I have not seen any actual photos of the model yet - does anyone some photos to share?

Though I can't find shop of Ravensburgers in China, Ravensburgers animal models could be found in TAOBAO sometimes. As you all know, they are from China factory directly...so the quality is not good.. But Chinese people are still lucky because we could buy it in China.
