PostSubject: Julip model horses   Sat Aug 22, 2015 4:23 pm

arrow To Mods - if this topic is in incorrect section, feel free to move it!

Recently I've became very interested in these unusual models - so much that I'm saving now to buy my first one! :)

A bit of history and basic info:

Julip Horses Ltd was established in the UK in 1945 - that makes it the oldest model horse company, older even than Breyer Very Happy
They make horses in 1:12 scale, which are still produces the same way - natural latex is cast in a plaster mould. Models also have wired legs which allows them to be repositioned slightly. Their manes and tails are haired, either with synthetic hair or mohair.

There have been dozens of various moulds, some are no longer produced, some are still available.

In 1980s a new line was introduced - Julip Horse of the Year (so called Julip HOTY), which consisted of cheaper (and stiffer) models made of vinyl. The latex models were renamed and relaunched as Julip Originals.

In late 2013 the company was split into two separate and independent ones:
- Julip Horses Ltd. producing vinyl Julip HOTY models ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
- Julip Originals producing latex models ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])

Forum also known as J-Club :) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Julip HOTY cost around £18 for a single horse or £30 or a horse and rider set.

Julip Originals can be purchased in two ways:
- as special order, where you can choose mould, colour, markings and even some minor customisation (e.g. wire in neck or slightly repositioned head). The basic price is from £17.50 for a foal up to £47.50 for an adult horse. Each customisation costs additional £5.
- as so-called spare - every few months the company announces a sale of batch of randomly made models. This option is cheaper, as they're usually sold for basic price of a mould, but you don't have as much influence on the details of your model.

Also, Julip Originals were initially sold as toys but now, due to safety regulations and material they're made of (latex) they can't be legally sold to anyone under 14, so now they're collector items.

These models are not very popular but they have some very dedicated fans and collectors. They're also not as realistic as Breyers (not to mention Artist Resins models) but they are definitely charming and cute!

A few photos Very Happy

First of all, Julip archive, where you can browse through photos of various moulds, both current and vintage:

They can also open their mouth (or at least hold things there), which means they can use "real" bits, unlike Breyers! (Cob Mare mould)

Some collections are big - apparently, you can never stop after just one or a couple of them, they multiply quickly and to large numbers!

Excellent presentation of that horse models company! It is very interesting and this info will surely be used to Toy Animal Wiki. Very Happy I think horse is the most replicated animal in toy shape, thus, it doesn't wonder so many horse specialized brands. Very Happy In my particular case, it is exciting to know that there are some foxes. bounce bounce Thanks for your great topic and please keep us updated about your Julip collection. Very Happy

I forgot about HOTYs! XD

Here are some current examples (promo photos):

As I already mentioned before, they're stiffer and cheaper than Originals.

Also, there are some Original moulds which used to be HOTY moulds before:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (HOTY Arab Champion)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (HOTY Ted)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (HOTY Family Pony, I believe)

Thanks Magda, I opened a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] on Toy Animal Wiki completed based in this topic. :) It can be interesting if we have permission to use pictures but the ideal was to have someone contributing directly at the Wiki. Specially a collector of the brand.
Thanks for showing these foxes, they're quite simple like the most recent horses, actually, it looks like the same character in different poses. Very Happy Please ask their price, I probably can't afford them now but is serves as a reference to a future acquisition. Very Happy

Recently some spare foxes have been sold for £5 plus shipping, I'm guessing that when (and if) they're made on order there's not a large price difference Wink

Great topic, I never heard of this brand and I'm still not a horse model collector but I like very much discovering new brands especially when the style is so toyish and charming Very Happy

I've placed an order for my first Julip!
Due to the process of their creating I might need to wait even 1,5 month before I get it, but once it's in my hands I'll make sure to add some photos and comments Very Happy

I just got an update regarding my Julip - apparently, it's out of the mould and is now being made smooth which may take a while.
I'm so excited, although I haven't seen it yet! XD

Here he is! He's exactly as I imagined him to be when I ordered him!
For now I'll show you Laura's photo I've received upon his completion, hopefully I'll take some more this weekend :)


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



He is supposed to be silver brown-ish Wink He's based on my starter horse from the game called Star Stable. All starter horses in this game are made-up breed called Jorvik Warmblood. Since the game is created in Scandinavia (Sweden), I've decided to make him Scandinavian as well.
I did some research, and now he's a Finnish x Estonian silver brown gelding. I've named him Silverboy, after my horse in game.

Now I need to get him some rider/handler and hopefully some tack as well! And some Julip company, of course! Very Happy
