PostSubject: Ricolino    Sun Nov 20, 2016 1:28 pm

So today I was able to add Ricolino to TAi! cheers There isn't much to find about the brand, so if anyone knows more, please let me know. But now about what I do know:

TAi wrote:
Ricolion is part of Grupo Bimbo, a Mexican multinational bakery product manufacturing company founded in Mexico in 1945. Bakeries are located the United States, Mexico, Canada, Chile and Spain. Ricolino includes Kinder surprise like products, in which figurines can be found. There have been animal related series in the past.

I have actually no idea if Ricolino still makes animal figurine series. I found out about them quite a while ago, when I was searching through the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]-topic, where I spotted a Ricolino hyena from Sean ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]). Unfortunately, his picture isn't working anymore (there it is, again!), but it stood on a base.

Then somewhere last year I was able to get myself a lovely unknown puzzle manatee off a Dutch online marketplace. I had no idea what it was because it wasn't marked, not even with a product number. I contacted a huge Kinder surprise egg collector if he knew any look-a-like brands, but unfortunately I never received an answer. So there was nothing more I could do about it.

Then, somewhere August/September this year, Karin ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) found a lovely puffin puzzle figurine in a store near her home. She showed it to me but I had no idea what it was. She asked around here on STS and then Andreas ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) came with the revealing answer: it's Ricolino!

To make a slightly long story a bit shorter, we now have a 'new' brand on TAi and in our midst. When searching for ricolino animales on Google Pictures you'll be able to find some series, but there isn't much more than that. No release years, official names of series and no complete lists of existing figurines. They go for pretty high prices on Mexican auction sites and I can't find any animal-related series on eBay at the moment. If anyone has more information, or just pictures, any figurines in collections, please let me know!! I'd love to see what else they made!

Here you can see my manatee, Karin's puffin and Sean's hyena:

Note on the Ricolino hyena: part of an African Wildlife series, which at least included a lion. Bases fit together and form the African continent.
Also known: a koala in an Australian Wildlife series, same concept as the African Wildlife series.

When searching Google Pictures you can find some series, including Marine Mammals, Dinosaurs, Dogs, Horses and Birds.

Here some pictures from Google (credits go to the owners):

I had to move my photos to Google photos for space reasons.

Here is the Ricolino hyena:

There was also a lion, which I didn't buy (way back then). Each base was a piece of Africa, and when they were all put together it made the continent--and they have gears on the bottom that woudl get all of the figures to spin around.

Thank you very much, Sean! Such a lovely figurine, I've been looking for it ever since I saw yours. Also nice to know that it was an African Wildlife series, thanks! I hope we can find out more about them.
Do you remember which decade you bought it?

Based on where I was living, it was between 2006-2008, but it was older than that, definitely not new.

There was also a similarly styled koala for an Australia set.

That sounds very interesting, I'd love to learn more about this Australian set. Thanks again, Sean! I'll add this information to the topic Smile

No idea. I came across the few figures in an ebay search, and there were no details with the papers.

It seems that there have been diffferent waves of animals--the hyena is a thin plastic and came in 2 pieces. Those ones look like small PVC or plastic, singe-piece figures.

I found some more information a little while ago, but didn't had the time to share it earlier. So I found two surprise egg collecting sites, one Russian (Jukate.ru) and one Lettish (Kinderhobby.com). The strange thing is that both sites call their Ricolino figurines Maraja, which is Italian. But as far as I know, Ricolino isn't distributed in Italy scratch

But now for their series Very Happy Picture credits go to abovementioned sites!

Mini Puzzleland Animals
2005/2006

5. Pelican (American/great white pelican?)
6. Bald eagle

I can't find anything on any other series at the moment, sorry. I assumed some species (the ones with the question marks behind it), but please correct me if I'm wrong!

Nice new information Julie, great job!!
The little leaflets help a lot!

Interesting is how different brands are fusing together, it seems.

Sometimes if you search and than you see some figurines. And than you think you know that.

And than you remember that you saw it too in a other topic and so you found a relation.
