Julie has opened a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] about how to make [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] a super place to find info about this strangely elusive brand Very Happy

For fear that the Elephants may "drown" in the discussion, I take the liberty to start this topic about AAA elephants only elephant elephant

I have these two
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

From the Bullyland catalogue 1992, I can see that the grey one must be a cow, and the yellowish-grey one is just "An adult elephant"
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

But I know there are several others, bot small and large, adult and calves...please if you will show pictures if you have others. Very Happy

Please don't refrain from showing, even if you are not happy with the quality of your photo.
The quest at the moment is to get an overview of which elephant models are out these Very Happy

I don't have AAA elephants but these made to Bullyland is a good start to have a good overview.
Your's seem to be the 2nd generation adulte and cow from 1st generation, isn't it?
I think Simone has the 2nd generation calf and Sergey lots of them. Laughing

There are also these two from Torben that had them all:

Well done, Susanne, I was doubting if I should bring them to attention more in the AAA on TAi topic, but creating a whole topic for elephants alone is even better! cheers

Here is my AAA elephant:

When I see it in your Bullyland catalogue, I assume that it's a baby elephant, not just a small sized one. Can you tell me what your catalogue says? Smile
When I'm home again I shall see if I own any other AAA elephant!

Great topic of AAA elephant! I hope I will have time to show all my AAA elephant~~~~In fact, AAA have many scales elephants from small to large. But for me, I like normal scale to fit with other brands.

That would be fantastic Zhang! With the help of everyone we can build a huge AAA source for collectors and everyone will win with it once AAA have figures to all tastes. Very Happy

Thanks Zhang! I know the toy industry is ginving a step forward in terms of realistic figures but AAA always did a great work, mainly considering how was the average quality of other brands at the time. :)

AAA designs molds according with brand specifications and AAA also designs and manufacture their own molds that other brands can use in their range. That is what is called OEM and ODM.
These first elephants are AAA products. Bullyland instead of creating new molds to manufacture their own figures, They introduced in their range these AAA elephants from AAA "portfolio". Obviously Bully needed to pay to AAA to use and have them manufactured by AAA but it is much cheaper than creating their own molds.
Many other brands/companies use this kind of strategy in their early years to reduce the risk of entering in a market that may not result profitable. If market responds well, these brands start developing their own products.
Concluding, these elephants are AAA molds that were sold by Bullyland.
