hi,i could anyone tell me if the arctic hare figures from Schleich, Papo and Safari ltd are roughly the same size? I'd like to get an arctic hare for my collection but the Schleich one is the hardest to find and most expensive, but its the size Im looking for. If the other two are around the same size it would be easier for me to get one of those. Thanks!

The Safari Arctic hare is larger than the other two, but in my opinion it is an outstanding model Very Happy

Actually the Schleich one is not an Arctic hare, but a mountain hare rabbit

Right now I can't find the Papo one , but here are Schleich and Safari :

Ha, ha, the lovely Papo hare was standing right in front of my nose all the time geek

Here they are together :

oh these are great pics, thanks Susanne! I still prefer the Schleich but the Papo is a good alternative. I didn't know the Schleich one was a mountain hare, or that mountain hares are a different species. Learn something new here everyday!

I love the Safari one too, reminds me of the rabbits from Watership Down, very alert and ready for a fight, lol!

Great that you can use the picture Very Happy

Ohh, yes. Watership Down ! I never dared to read it. It is very sad, isn't it ? Shocked

Thank you for comparison pictures! I like the Safari one a lot, it reminds the Snowshoe hare (Lepus americanus), isn't it? Smile

"Watership Down" has a few sad moments but it's a good read, it's not overly pessimistic Smile

I never read Watership Down but have seen the film. It will make you see rabbits in a whole new way! Shocked

btw I thought the snowshoe hare and arctic hare were the same animal. All these white bunnies look alike! scratch

The snowshoe hare has even bigger feet than the Arctic hare. But the model can be any of the two I think? the ears are more like of an Arctic species (shorter ears) and feet more like of the snowshoe hare, at least that's my impression Smile

The one from Schleich is a Mountain Hare, which you can find in alpine regions for example.
The ones from Safari and Papo are real Arctic Hares.

In terms of being realistic, I think Safari is the best (which is why it is in my Synoptic Collection :).

I think the larger feel are probably just for figure stability, but the ears and color definitely favor the Arctic hare!

Yes, the one from Safari is the best one. The Hare from Papo is a Hare, which has surpassed the winter and is waiting for spring.

And Schleich is a domestic rabbit painted white! LOL

I think because Schleich is a company located in the southern part of Germany, they used the so called Alpine Mountain Hare as a template:

I've seen some of them, when we were wandering in German part of the alps. And the model from Schleich has the same body shape
