Where I live is almost as far away from cities as it is possible to get in Denmark.

App 20 minutes drive from here there is a village with a few shops. I was very surprised last Sunday when I saw that the shop selling knitting wool and such, also had some CollectA´s Shocked

Monday I went to see what they had, but the shop is closed on Mondays ! So I bought a large cake in the shop next door instead. yummy Laughing

Thursday I went there. And it turned out that what was in the window was all they had !
I almost emptied their stock, now I had really set my mind on CollectA - Laughing I must say, it made it easier to chose !
But I am quite pleased with them anyway Wink


I like the bears.


A pinguin....


There was no mom for the fawn, but Crocger thinks he may find one for us Very Happy


The paint mustang looks much better than in the catalogue.


This one is very impressive


And the pony is not nearly as weird as it looks in the catalogue


This tiger, - He is very angry ! His make-up artist gave him ladie`s eyelashes cheers

Congratulations Susanne! The lady of this shop should be very happy! A real hunter only 20 minutes from her little shop! :)
I never see these bears, look very nice!:)
Crocger will certainly try to hunt a doe to complete your family! I mean, the red deers family!EmbarassedWink
The horses are interesting, you have two pintos, one from older style of sculpting, the Mustang from 2007 and the 2010 Barock Friesian already a sculpting of Deborah!:)
This 2007 Shetland poney goes away very fast from my shop and is available in 4 colours, chestnut, palomino, black and white!
This is the 2010 tiger, I have the older already retired from catalogue! He have a big mouth!!! :afraid: cat cheers

Talking about red deer, - today my son and I took the dogs for a long walk in the woods (run for me, Kristian`s legs are much longer than mine, gasp, gasp ! Embarassed ), and we saw TWO heards of red deer ! One flock was almost 20 of them !!!! The dogs got completely mad, such a noice, I had the two gazehounds, they almost pulled my arms off Very Happy

Arh, please, please, Roger, will you show us a picture of the retired tiger bounce bounce bounce

Woah! Congratulations! I love the bear family, and the pinto horse really looks better than in the catalogue! And that tigress is really funny with those eyelashes :) The only thing is that the black pinto baroque horse looks better all in black, those white markings are not very well done. But it´s lovely too!

Laughing Schleich were the first to sell from Bookshops here !

Having closed on Mondays, - I could understand Friday if the owner was Jewish, - buy MONDAY Shocked

Well, it is not many years ago when schools and many shops were closed a week in the autum. The week when the potatoes had to be collected ! Now it is done by machines, of course, but some still take a "Potato-holiday" : A week off in October drunken

Congratulations Susanne! Lovely additions. I especially like seeing a different photo of the paint mustang. He looks much better in your photo than in the catalogue. I have not been very interested in him before, but now that I've seen he can be almost handsome, in his own special way, I am much more keen to get him.

You are very lucky to have a shop that stocks Collecta near you. I have yet to find anywhere near here that sells them Sad I was almost starting to think that you couldn't actually buy them anywhere in shops and that they were only available online. I really must get a new order in from Australia soon, there are a few animals that I very much would like to add to my small collection, but for some reason I've been postponing placing my order several times. However, after having seen your pictures I feel very motivated and I must get my act together and sort out my order:D

Hi, Matilda, good to hear from you Very Happy
Are you back in Sweden yet ?

Yes, that mustang surprised me also. He is actually quite nice.
Perhaps he should walk a little uphill, the way he holds his neck could indicate it.
I think I will try that tomorrow in daylight outside if the weather is not too awful Wink

Wow, you remember me!
No, I'm still in England and I think I'll be staying here for a little longer; I quite like it Wink

I think you are right about him walking uphill. Maybe even with a little carriage. If you do try it, post some pictures please!

I have just placed an order of Collectas from Australia. The Frieser Stallion, the bay thoroughbred mare, the black appaloosa and the grey arabian mare. I'm very excited! The bay thorughbred mare was my main reason for ordering them, I think she looks absolutely stunning and I hope she looks as good in real life as she does in the pictures I've seen. The others looks good too and I especially like the look of the frieser stallion; he should be gorgeous. Hopefully they'lll be here before too long!

So you like England ? It is a great country, and they make the world`s best chutneys Razz

Uhh, I don`t even dare to look at that Australian site, they have SO many wonderful figueres. And now the new Schleich and Bullyland are comming soon, money, money, money Shocked

You are right about the Mustang, - carring something, - or perhaps pulling one of those, - what are trey called - with two sticks along the sides of the horse and the end of the sticks trailing on the ground ?

Unfortunately I am a real clown at making small things because I have arthritis in my hands. I could be so much fun to make, - maybe an idea for some of the artists in the forum ?

I love England! Not sure I agree with you about the chutneys though, but then I'm not keen on chutneys anyway Wink

They do and most of them I don't have :p But I tend to order my Schleichs from Germany, so I don't even look at them on that site, which gives me more koney to spend on collectas Very Happy

Interesting idea. If I ever get enough time I'd love to try making on myself! Though I don't suppose that's going to happen anytime soon :p
