Here I am sharing now the most touching and generous gift I've ever received during my whole collection time. Junglejim, such an incredibly wonderful person, has send me his original Playvisions Catalog from 1998! This treasure is of course not ment to be stored away in a safe but to be shared with all of you who are interested in this company that was once so brilliant and ingenious and is so mediocre nowadays.
So let's admire all those beauties in full colour and with all the enthusiasm and melancholy it deserves.

Wished I could take a time machine back to 1988 and 1999 and buy the whole product range, sigh ...
I love especially to see all the different packages sets have been sold in - and maybe this makes it easier to find certain items. Never have seen these jaw or tooth&claw sets with sharks and jaw piece or wolf, bear, tiger, croc and a replica tooth and claw.

There are also some XX animals in the PlayVision product range I didn't know before, like snakes (#819), lizards (#820) and beetles (#0880).
And some sea shells that look very real. The brand (if XX, PV or just China) I don't know.

Realize some animals are pictured different from what they looked like later, like the big Orang Utan. And also realize - they indeed forgot the Andean condor in the raptor's pic! Also messed the names of the big sized bottlenose and hourglass dolphin

((it will take several days until everything is uploaded, I am doing this step by step. I will upload the complete catalog, also pages without any habitat earth animals. I think it is worth to preserve the whole catalog))

Thank You very much for sharing these catalog copies, Beatrice, very inspirative pages to study!

Some figures look very different than the real ones (as You wrote, the large orang-utan is different in shape, the large jaguar has on the pic much better paint as the real one, the macaque from the monkey set is completely diferent), some figures are really new to me...

I like the moose from the Yellowstone set; has anybody any photo of the real figure? Acquired now.

BTW: Some sets and animals are missing: Asia set, lemurs, zebra...

That's very interesting and after a carefull study, it can change our perception about how these collections were arranged. Many thanks for sharing. Very Happy

Thank you for these! I wish so much that i had kept the catalogs I had. There is one set I remember seeing that I have not seen anywhere - and that is a set of duck pencil toppers. They were very well made and very realistic, and near the back of the catalog - are there more pages to this catalog perhaps?

The lizards and the bird from the first page are this really figurines? And the serengeti set is the same like the Yujin set, but in the last set wit a few more figurines made by K&M

the lizards are "stretchy sand lizards" and the birds is a pencil topper with sound. I will upload those pages later, but they are in the back part of the catalog.
Weird thing about the serengeti sets, do you realize they have the wildebeest in both sets? Maybe a picture mistake...

Many thanks Beatrice :) The catalogue was already impressive, but with colours will it be spectacular Very Happy
When the manufactures of PV would know, that quiet every forum-member would be the sets, maybe they would release them again? Razz
It´s so hard to find PV, it´s always coincidence to find them Sad Still no shop or zoo found in Germany/Netherland or Belgium with some rare PV :/

Thank you for the pictures- I've always liked catalogs and these look wonderful in color. Smile

But where was I in 1998? pale  You can really tell that care went into planning these selections. I didn't know about those nudibranchs, sea snakes, or eels! I especially like the figurine styles in the Amazon, monkeys, and salamanders sets. The dinosaurs are a noticeable weak link... I wonder why?

Maybe mandrill was used instead of the gnu for the set with big Elephant.

But more interesting for me is the missing bird in the raptors set - the set should have 8 figures but only 7 is displayed - and the Andean condor has Harpy eagle head on the pic! affraid

I remember going through these catalogs back then. But I never paid much attention to all of it (interesting how many sets I've had over the years, many of which are gone).

Some interesting things--on page 38 is a set of animals that was released with the Panini stickers--it has obviously gotten around. Much like the small dinosaurs, which are Mech figures with better paint jobs (but otherwise unremarkable).

And I need to know more about the tropical fish on page 39--it is a weird angle, but some of them are intriguing. In spite of their silly colours. They don't look like recasts of the other tropical fish series.

There's still a lot we need and want to know about Play Visions. We are currently working the bulk pages on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. it is still being structured and if possible, we will upload a lot of pictures next weeks and turn it as much complete as possible. Maybe you can help us with some information once you seem very informed about these figures. Later, we will see which other sets will be listed, among them, maybe these 4 rubber tropical fish. Though, I don't remember seeing it on forum.
The small dinosaurs are those 24 listed with bluks? Interesting that they're Mech, do you have a list of which figures belong to this bulk? Very Happy

I used to scour the catalogs looking for new and interesting things--I even had a local retailer bring in a full jar of the wild dogs set! Although I don't have many spares anymore. It was probably a few years before this catalog, because I'm sure I would have noticed the eels!

Interestingly, the Spotted hyena that I recently received from Julia isn't anywhere to be found in this catalog. Which means we need one that is at least a few years older! Because it wasn't long after this that PV called it quits with all but a few (boring) sets, due almost entirely to problems with bootlegging and other copies.

Unfortunately, I don't know much more about the dinos--I never had even close to a full set of them (they really weren't worth it...). Apparently they were later carried by Toysmith, but I don't know if that's still true. From what I can tell, the PV set is the larger version; the smaller Mech dinos were included with Panini 'Dinosaur album' stickers.

Thanks, the spotted hyena you've received is probably the 1999 that you can see [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. It is the number 7 of a 1999 set that we call [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], though name is conjectural once it is from 1999 and we only have 1998 catalogue.
They had some more figures marked hyena, the small and large prehistoric hyenas that are andrewsarchus actually. Laughing ... and the striped hyena from the Wild Dogs bulk, although we all know it is not a wild canid. Very Happy

They had some more figures marked hyena, the small and large prehistoric hyenas that are andrewsarchus actually. Laughing ... and the striped hyena from the Wild Dogs bulk, although we all know it is not a wild canid.  Very Happy

Well of course I have 3 of those 3! I had never seen the spotted. One thing I don't understand--unlike every other PV figure I have, the spotted hyena has no number marked on it, which is weird. Is this true of the rest of its 'set'?

Also, the bat-eared fox was definitely part of the Wild Dogs set, although it may have shown up in later re-mix sets.

I really love those transparent multicolored tropical fish. And everything else on the catalog. I now have to drain my house from all the drooling.

these numbers are often very well hidden, was a pain and sometimes impossible to find them all. The spotted hyena has the number between the front legs, seems a bit like a fur structure.
Hope this helps
The bad-eared was indeed in two sets, first of course the Wild Dogs, the two models look identic, but the script on the belly shows different years (1996, 1998)

Interestingly, the Spotted hyena that I recently received from Julia isn't anywhere to be found in this catalog. Which means we need one that is at least a few years older! Because it wasn't long after this that PV called it quits with all but a few (boring) sets, due almost entirely to problems with bootlegging and other copies.

Unfortunately, I don't know much more about the dinos--I never had even close to a full set of them (they really weren't worth it...). Apparently they were later carried by Toysmith, but I don't know if that's still true. From what I can tell, the PV set is the larger version; the smaller Mech dinos were included with Panini 'Dinosaur album' stickers.

Sean, Beatrice replied to you above, we used this post to collect as much info about PV as we could, now some ambiguous questions are being solved in a topic that you can find in my signature. Very Happy
I know you have a lot of Play Visions figures and maybe you could be a very good help here. Very Happy
