PostSubject: Dairy Queen National Wildlife Federation Brown Bear- walkaround/comparison   Sat Aug 12, 2017 10:39 am

This is the National Wildlife Federation-branded brown bear that was released at Dairy Queen restaurants. It is part of a group of animals that attach to bases representing different continents, copyrighted 1996. I acquired the brown bear and jaguar at that time, and they have remained a couple of my favorite animal toys. Pictures of this bear seem to be absent online, so let's have a look:

Here's a comparison with its companion, the Nature Techni Colour brown bear. While the NTC bear has impeccable proportions and detail, the NWF bear has more interesting coloration and a special bearishness to its bearing.
I love you

I'm glad you guys like the walkaround. Andreas, I thought I saw something about them on the forum once in the past, but can't find it again. I got this bear and the jaguar (South America) from the local Dairy Queen at the time, and sometime later I ended up with the Koala (Australia) secondhand without the base. Walkarounds for those two are coming. I think there is a wolverine for Europe, and maybe a Panda for Asia and elephant for Africa? scratch  

Rogério, hopefully I will be sharing more topics/pictures now that I've switched to Postimage- I had no idea the alternatives ran so much smoother than Photobucket (for now at least).

Dutch Bear, I wish I had gotten more of all the animals when they were available, then a bear would certainly be migrating to the great colony in the Netherlands. Smile  He does have a charming face.

Very "good old days" topic cheers Thank you Andy!

I like very much the comparison pics with the Kitan bear. By the way I didn't imagine the Yowie bear was so small.

Found the discussion cheers  from the Show Us Your Rarities topic (pg. 7). I'll leave the link here for reference:

So, the group includes a brown bear, jaguar, koala, wolverine, giant panda, African elephant, and emperor penguin. There are also ID cards- if I can find mine I will add images to the walkaround.

Yes, it goes pretty well with the Safari toob one.
