Congratulations! I used to have all those dragons at one time, but sold them a while ago. I did keep the baby Nugur though, he's just too darn cute! I love you

I remember getting my dragons, they are the best as far as I'm concerned. Big congrats on the new dragons and the odd little star wars fish, I enjoyed looking at them. Very Happy And what beautiful flowers you have there! Here the world is frozen, its nice to see such gorgeous wonderful flowers in December. Laughing

I found a few things at a flea market this weekend, and just made a good sized find at a thrift store that used to throw away any toys it got. Yay that they are keeping them to sell now! cheers

Most if the little figures are no names, just China except for one Hong Kong. Most of the little frogs and maybe half of the turtles are Safari. The toob looks like it might be pretty old? It had no top, so I don't know that some/all of the figures in it are original to it. I can't make out a company's name on the toob, it looks like Ooausini, Qausini or maybe just Ausini? No date or barcodes; it's labeled 'World of Wild Animal'. Sorry once again for the messy worktop!

I don't know if anything here is on anyone's wishlists, but I'd be willing to trade or sell pretty much any of them if so.

I can try to break that big batch into smaller ones to photograph, if that's what's wanted... and Photobucket cooperates.
I found a few new things at a fleamarket. The box is a Schleich tree, and the unicorn is a Breyer Paddock Pals sized (horn broken, making a new one). Cobra and cow are Safari, German shepherd is Toy Major, dinos have no molded stamp but Triceratops has an ink stamp (Yuangjin Guangdong or something like that, it's not here at the moment), Tyrannosaur has no stamp but looks/feels like same make as the Triceratops. Husky or wolf pup is no name resin, weird dino/dragon is also unnamed.

Additions from flea markets are always exciting once we never know what we will find there. Very Happy
I have some questions, is your Toy Major German shepherd the 1999 version? You can confirm it just seeing each year is marked on it. study
About the triceratops, it is also very interesting, Yuangjin Plastics co. may be the manufacturer being the other name the province where it is located. Actually that is a place with lots of Chinese manufacturers. Very Happy

Hi Roger, the German shepherd is stamped DOG 1999. And I have the triceratops here now, my mistake the stamp (on the side of the tail) is Guangdong Yinrun Industry Co. LTD 0514 Shantou China. Except for the mold join around the middle and the sick zombie paintjob of the eyes, it's not a bad figure. Pretty big though, about 10" long. It and the tyrannosaur came from the same flea market vendor who had a bunch of secondhand stuff, only a few toys or models.

Thanks for additional information! Very Happy Markings are very important. You've just confirmed that it is the same dog we can see in Emilia's collection website and it is just marked dog what explains why it is not with other dog breeds. It may probably be a part of a farm set or it would be marked with breed name instead. study
Your triceratops is marked with the Chinese manufacturer, not very usual, a brand name is or just "Made in China" is more usual, though it may be a good start to we find one more unknown series. bounce

My husband and I went out to Cocoa Beach last weekend and hit a thrift store while there; I found a few small animals. (went to The Dinosaur Store also, I highly recommend visiting it if you're going to be in the Orlando area! Saw my first Papo dinos, gorgeous, and some interesting modern no name things but my husband said "no"- till the next time that is!)
The two Styracosaurs on bases are stamped Walking with Dinosaurs 3D. Other stuff is Chinamals except for wolf pup is Safari. The black bull angered his wife I think but he had a nice flow to him, I will try to fix him. Angel wings on Parasaurolophus aren't attached, they would fit any small animal.

Also today I found a closing store that supplies churches and schools mainly. (guess they're just going to online sales?) I picked up a few things; most I hope to sell but I'm keeping a few.

These figures are HUGE- some are soft rubbery plastic and some hard, they are attractive figures and are stamped 'Learning Resources Made In China'. I want to keep the fish but sell the rest.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


A box of tiny, mostly dinosaur/prehistoric Chinamals, will probably use as child's handouts but would sell most or part. A larger toy marked as a baby reindeer and another as a squirrel were buried inside also. Tarunyada, one of the non-extincts is marked as a manatee (all seem to have species on them), and Roger, another is a fox.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


A bag of dogs, about the same scale as the major brands, not bad sculpts but horrible paint. No brand.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Smaller toob sized dogs, same not terrible sculpts but horrible paint.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Cats, about same size as larger dogs, same not terrible sculpts but horrible paint.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And Play Visions sharks! Bought 2 bags of these, one to keep and one to share. Toob sized.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The store also had a few 12 pack animal sets I didn't get (butterfly, snake, frog, seahorse, jellyfish, I'm probably forgetting some), HUGE packages of wild animals and sea animals, a mixed sea animal set (small), and a few Safari toobs- I remember the pets one and I think a horse one, plus a few others. They also had a set of huge figures like the pets one I showed, only farm animals, a dog agility(?) set that I think had the same figures as the large dogs bag with accessories, and a cats play set with accessories and I think the cats bag. I will try to get back if I can/someone's interested before they close next week, but no guarantees I don't have a day off before then and unless I get off early I can't get there before they close in the evening.

I enjoy a lot seeing these almost random toy animals. We always learn a lot and it is incredible the diversity of toys that can be acquired.
Among them some gens and it is exciting that you could find some Play Visions.
Is it possible to see a close-up of the fox you've found?
I am also very curious about these 12-figures sets. Do you recall if they had a similar quality to Play Visions or they were only variations around the same mould?
There's some chance that they are Club Earth, K&M or so. If they are, they're very interesting toys. If, for instance, jellyfish figures represent different species, I am sure it won't be hard to find a owner for them on forum. Very Happy

I have received a very lovely gift from a forum member, a Prior fish! It really means a lot to me, so thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Here he is with my Yowie desert pupfish. They make a great pair!

That's a beautiful figure and a lovely gift! Very Happy In fact, it bears some similarities with your Devil's Hole pupfish. Very Happy Do you have any idea of what species it is? Very Happy

Yes, wasn't it though? cheers

Roger, at a guess, it is supposed to be a killifish, one of the annuals most likely- they have some wild colors and patterns, and I believe they were fairly popular aquarium fish in Europe in the '60s.

How cute! He does go very nicely with the pup fish (and I really love the Yowie fish, hope they keep making new species). What a great find. cheers

Got a few things at a flea market last weekend and a couple thrift stores:

Assortment of makes- Safari, Schleich, a PV frog, a couple Treehouse Kids Labrador retreivers, a bunch of Hong Kong figures (haven't seen those since I was a kid!), others I don't remember offhand and no-name makes, plus a few makes I'm unfamiliar with.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Edit to add this no name (not even China) but cool jointed guy, has lower jaw flips down too
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This Holstein is stamped just 'Kerry'. Stablemate horse sized.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This horse (Stablemate sized, and a decent looking figure) is stamped 'Marchon Inc 1993 China'.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This Breyer Family Arabian Stallion knockoff is Stablemate sized, marked 'Nylint'. Don't they make model trucks? If so I suppose this guy was an accessory to a truck/trailer set.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And finally, a Breyer woodie! I will probably try to sell him, but am enjoying him first.

Fantastic additions and a lot to find out! Thanks for providing what is marked, USA toy industry is quite rich, mainly during 1990's but we are not very well documented about them.
Your decent horse marked Marchon is a Grand Champions figure, please [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and you can find more info through links provided on it.
You can also find on TAI some info about [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] although it is quite poor yet.
The friendly looking creature Laughing looks somewhat like these therapsid protomammals,, surely an action figure like those JP, Sean maybe knows about it. study
Others are much probably complements to vehicle sets but we need to find more about that. Wonderful Breyer horse too! Very Happy

Wow! This is a very nice set of figures. Congratulations!

I think your creature with the articulated legs and jaw is a Dicynodont, which is a therapsid as Roger correctly pointed out. I couldn't tell you the name of the company, or the exact species, but it is a really cool and unique figure.

Wow!  This is a very nice set of figures.  Congratulations!

I think your creature with the articulated legs and jaw is a Dicynodont, which is a therapsid as Roger correctly pointed out.  I couldn't tell you the name of the company, or the exact species, but it is a really cool and unique figure.

Thanks! After some scrubbing, I found '2005 Unimax' on an inner leg. I like him whatever the case!

Andreas, there is no mark- not even China- on the rattlesnake that I can see. my eyes are bad though.

You're probably right, Taylor. I figure a great many of these oddball figures are probably accessories to vehicle or action hero sets.

Roger, are there any figures you're curious to know about? Let's see, the kangaroo is Topps, there are a couple U.S. Yowies Series 1, the small sharks are SeaWorld...

After seeing a photo in the Search forum, I'm wondering about one of my Hong Kong finds. It is marked just 'Made in Hong Kong' on the recessed bottom. Could this be an Azur? It's a stretch, but not impossible- I live near Disney, and we get a lot of international visitors and immigrants here.

Yes it could be Azur. But i believe that figurines was sold by different names, like Nayab today. And thank you for the answer :)

With markings life is easier! Laughing
Your dino is from some action figure sets called Dino Warriors released by Unimax in 2005.
The creatures represented apparently are not based in real prehistoric creatures but the figure you are presenting is usually identified as a Dinodontosaurus by collector communities. I will check later other figures and see what could be of use for TAI but, meanwhile, if you spot anything missing there, just let us know. Very Happy

I liked the looks of one of the new Schleich dragons in a catalogue I saw, but didn't find any locally. So I bought it from H&H Winner's Circle after seeing them post it on sale. I thought it might get hungry on the trip, so I bought a AAA flying fish to go with it, what better food for aquatic dragons than flying fish? Here is the diving dragon!

Next weekend, my sister and I will be going to a huge international orchid show in South Florida. When we went 2 years ago, we also visited a big flea market that proved to have a lot of toys. I really shouldn't buy more orchids (looks like I'm going to have to move soon and I already have around 100), so I'm looking forward to hitting that flea market. I hope to have lots to show in a couple weeks.

I think it was a very good idea to get a flying fish to your dragon. Very Happy A dragonfish and a dragonfly would surely enrich the cast. Very Happy
Be aware to not get too much orchided and please let us know if you find some exciting toys in that flea market. bounce

Got back from the show and side trip to the Keys Tuesday night- here's my haul (minus an old composition tiger I found at a junk shop, I don't dare handle it much! It can be seen here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Lots of AAA, along with Safari (makes sense in Miami, no?) and Schleich, a handful of K&M, a couple Seaworlds, and Chinamals I just liked. No Breyers this time! Some I plan on keeping, most would be happy in new homes.

OH, I'd love to grind a little your new additions. You always find so many interesting figures and often some that may help us solving some little toy animal misteries.
Is there any chance that you make closer pictures with brand groups that I can see what you have got in a clearer way?
For example, among many interesting things, I see a bear (under the bongo), this bear, I am almost sure, was presented as a new release on 2004 Wild Republic catalogue for their large figures series. Some of these figures, look just AAA. Could you please check how is that bear marked? Very Happy

Thanks everyone! I like the brachiosaurs also, and have had the smilodon sitting on my nightstand the past couple nights- he better move on fast or he's in danger of staying. Laughing He might just love the Netherlands after the south Florida heat. Laughing Wink

Roger, I will break things into groups and take better pictures as soon as I get some time. There are also a couple interesting markings (frog over the octopus is 1991 D.M., for instance). In the meanwhile, the bear is indeed marked AAA. Here are a couple pictures of it (bear cub is also AAA).

I looked, but I couldn't find any foxes. Wolves, dingoes, dogs, but no foxes. Sad

Which mean its not a real dinosaur.   I boght a couple of these back in 2005, but i lost them to my childhood, and now there very hard to find. However, I dont expect maney people to know what these things reallly are, since the line was not really popular.

Thank you, Susanne! The orchid says thanks also, it's still in bloom.

The starfish is indeed stamped 1999 Safari. I will get a picture of it as soon as I can and post it, so that it can be taken for TAI if you wish. I just tried, but my flash makes it look awful and it's dark now. I still have to find time to take better pictures for Roger!

Thanks, Takama! It's a neat figure I think, fantasy or not. I like fantasy too. (at least dragons) I may keep an eye out for the others now.

Hmm, dragonflies and dragonfish, there's a neat idea. I already have a fair China dragonfly, and I think the deep sea Safari toob has a dragonfish, no? I am getting that toob soon.
