In the Netherlands we have this shop called 'Kruidvat', which is a drugstore/pharmacy. They have a toy section as well, but most of the time this section isn't very interesting to me. Around the 15th of May this year I went to this store and found two incredible (big) animals from a brand which is unknown to me. They had a big grizzly bear and a lovely manta ray. I'm not really into sea life animal figurines, but I would have bought this figurine - if his tail hadn't broken off and was missing Sad So I only bought the bear. Here are some photographs:

If I remember correctly, on the label of the bear was quite the same information as on the belly. The website doesn't work anymore, unfortunately, and I can't find anything about the brand/other animal figurines. When I google it, the first thing I get is [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. These animals are just really big; I'll try to make a photograph to compare sizes soon.

Does anyone know this brand?

Aaaaah, I just found some more!! Watch this YouTube video from Hobby & Work Publishing:

Animal Selvaggi series


Dinosauri series


Looks like they sell some kind of magazine about an animal/dinosaur species, which includes one of these big models. Oooh I need that wolf and hyena from the Animal Selvaggi series <333

They also seem to have a series of construction/escalation vehicle models and some Looney Toones? Or did in the past? If eBay's a good indicator...

Yes, I think they did. You can check their YouTube account [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. They made a lot of stuff, but very different things from animal figurines. But their last video is from 2 years ago. And their site isn't working anymore, so I'm not sure if they're still in business..

I did not know they made toys. I have several horses from Hobby & Work Publishing. Here is one of them. More breakable than toyish tho.

I remember seeing those horses in your trades list! Funny, I didn't know they were published by Hobby & Work as well. Thanks for sharing!

Interesting! The animals in the Animali Selvaggi series doesn't seem to be copies, or does anyone recognize one of them?

Well I found them in a store here in the Netherlands, but they only sold them for a very brief time. Not anymore, now. I found one on a Dutch auction site, but I guess the seller bought it in that same store.
