I own this Play Visions toad that is marked Monteverde Golden Toad and 1996. I wanted to know which series it is, so I checked TAi. I can only find 2 series involving frogs and toads:

As mine is marked 1996, it would be strange if it was part of the 2002 series. But when I look at the 1996/1998 series, the two missing species (Boulenger's Asian Tree Toad, Pedostibes hossi and Harlequin Frog, Atelopus varius) don't even look like mine. Is it an unknown member of this series? Or is it part of a whole new series? Anyone who can tell me?

Here's my Monteverde Golden toad:

I read on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] that this species is classified extinct. Maybe that could be helpful to figure out the right series?

The frogs series listed on TAI only show dart frogs and all marked 1996.
In this page, there's a reference to a series with English name marked and from 1998. Though, I don't see any 98 frog listed. Maybe there is a collection of frogs and toads from 1998, maybe not exactly exclusively about poison dart frogs and your toad belongs there perhaps.
The only thing I am sure is that you've found something really interesting and that after K&M, we'll work hardly on PV section on TAI! Very Happy

In a quick search I've found these in DinoCat's collection:
Asian Horned Toad
Australian Mountain Toad
Burrowing Toad
Casque-headed Frog
Malayan Narrow Mouth Toad
Monteverde Golden Toad
Oriental Fire Belly Toad
Surinam Toad

Now I noticed that your is marked 1996 and not 1998 as I commented before. geek Much better, maybe we have 3 frogs and toads seris! Laughing

Thanks a lot, Roger! This is very helpful Very Happy It would be great if we discovered a third series with frogs and toads! Is DinoCat a member here on STS too or is he/she from the Animal/Dinosaur Toy Forum? scratch

Great catch - it is indeed from the frog/toad set. The confusion about 2002 is because Yujin has made a remake of this series together with some others, they have changed the colour/painting a bit. (I didn't knew when I made this list, I took the year from other member's pictures)
But yours is the truly original PV monteverde golden toad cheers


About TAI I am truly sorry, I have to rework the informations there when adding pictures, because we have some new and better knowledge since this list was uploaded on TAI long time ago. Will do that during the next weeks including pictures.

Julie, Dinocat is also a member of STS but was never active and is not visiting the forum for a long time. He is really active in ATF. Although he is very welcome, we have Beatrice with her superknowledge about PV. As I told, I am sure that after this huge K&M task, we will improve the PV section with wonderful galleries and the most complete lists possible! Very Happy
