PostSubject: Mattel - Dora & Diego Animals   Sat Apr 25, 2015 10:31 am

Last week I showed you my newest tapir; a tapir by Mattel. It's part of a toy series based on the children's educational animated TV series [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and the spin-off of Dora, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. These series are both broadcasted by Nickelodeon, part of the mass media company Viacom.
I myself find especially Dora very annoying, but than, I'm too old to take TV series like this serious, so my apologizes, Dora Laughing

But Mattel/Fisher Price made a series of toys from Dora and especially Diego. If I am correct (for I have never seen this show scratch), Diego has a HQ in some sort of rainforest and works there to protect all the animals. So the toys made for the Diego series include lots of animals Very Happy

Here again is my lovely little tapir that I acquired last week:

There is a darker version of this merry guy as well (which I do not own): Mine is the light version but the photographs turned out a bit darker

I'll show you some pictures from the internet for other species:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Maned wolf, sloth, sea turtle, leatherback turtle, scarlet macaw,
pterodactyl, crocodile, charmeleon (?), condor (?) and leopard

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Rhinoceros, hyena, lion, lioness, monkey, giraffe,
kudu, gazelle/impala, hippopotamus

These action play sets from Mattel always include Diego figurines as well, accompanied by vehicles or even his rainforest HQ. It appears that Fisher-Price made sets including animal species only, which appear to be more realistic than the above Mattel figurines:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Polar Animals: sea leopard(?), Arctic fox, polar bear
Ocean Figures: ray, whale shark(?), hammerhead shark
Polar Animals: snowy owl, muskox, wolverine
Monkey Figures: three different monkey species
Desert Animals: lizard(?), dromedary, cobra/rattlesnake(?)

Looks like most of the animals have the Diego rescue logo on them:

I know most of you collect realistic animals only, but it's just a fact that I have a weakness for cute animal figurines, so I wanted to share this with you anyway Embarassed Very Happy

Laughing Actually, the Arctic fox has a less cartoon style than others. Thanks Julie for opening new horizons for my fox collection, mainly to the cute world side. :)
Now I suspect that my niece has one of these figures. scratch

Yes indeed. It looks like all these packs with only 3 animals in them ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) look way more realistic than the figures in the photos above. But these packs with animals are from Fisher-Price, while my more cartoonish tapir is marked Mattel. Now the fact is that Fisher-Price is a subsidiary (daughter company) of Mattel, but I'm not sure if they're all marked as Mattel or just the more cartoonish figures. Interesting scratch

The llama is rather cute actually, though I too am more of a realistic animal collector usually.

I recently found a couple of the Diego tapirs and the maned wolf. They were the only Diego animals I noticed.
