There are no markings other than "Made in China" and a number. The numbers are limited to "1" or "2" the best I can tell so they aren't collection numbers - maybe mold numbers?:



Here's a size comparison of the Polar Bear to the Schleich version (big difference):



...and the owl to the Schleich Snowy Owl (very similar):

Okay, I've now gone through my final two boxes. Can't find any more anywhere other than exorbitant prices on Amazon/Ebay. Interesting distribution for these two boxes:

Here's the contents of two boxes with an August 2015 sell-by date:



A better Yowie-animal ratio this time around. One box had three Yowies (including two of the same type) and the final box had just one.

Here are the new animals individually.

Platypus:



Caracal:



Galapagos Tortoise:



Grey Wolf:



Fennec Fox:



The fox is beautiful - best representation yet IMHO. Here it is compared to the CollectA:



So after four boxes I'm still missing two animals (Alpaca and Clown Fish) and one Yowie. Here are images of the missing two animals from the box:



Needless to say I now have loads to trade and will update my trade/want lists shortly.

I started looking for these this week. After buying about five boxes I have all the animals except for the fox and wombat. I will post my extras later. I bought all that my Walmart had.

Thanks for the list Wilorvise - looks like an interesting distribution pattern. Only one Yowie per box is great!

Quagga, where in Walmart did you find yours? I looked in a bunch of places in my local ones and couldn't find any, but realize they could be just about anywhere in the store.

Roger, I don't think they are numbered. I wondered the same about the UK release but unfortunately don't have unfortunately don't have any of those to compare. I'm hoping to pull a Caracal since there is a photo on the UK version on Wiki.


Thanks Lance and good luck finding them. Very Happy

Okay, looking at the caracal on the wiki they are clearly different. I'm judging from the photos of UK releases but, in general, the new ones seem to be more realistic and less "cartoony."

The yowies website says which stores carry (but to call to make sure they're not sold out). But the ones the hubs found were with the checkout candy... 2or 3 from bottom. Right at my kids eye level

Yes, the fennec also confirms it once the new version seems much more realistic. Very Happy

Yowies UK and US fennecs

I took my mom to do her shopping today at one of my nearby Walmarts, and thought to look. I found them at several of the checkouts where the POP candies are; I only looked at a handful. Some were in cardboard trays, others loose on the shelf. Price was $2.48 which after tax would be about $2.63 for me. I did see one tray had an expiration date of August '15, wasn't able to check the others. I didn't get any as things are a little tight at the moment, so couldn't take the chance I'd end up with the cartoon characters. But there were plenty of them there.

From the Yowie slips. Copyright Yowie Group Limited. Shown for informational purposes only. I have to figure where the other two got off to. If this is a bad idea, feel free to delete. Thanks!
