PostSubject: New toobs: whales and dolphins, African Family and Pets!   Sun May 27, 2018 9:23 pm

I found these toobs (together with several other toobs) in a store in Leeuwarden.
Of course I could not resist to take a few (five in total XD)

These are new toobs from Wild Republic and are for sale in their web-shop: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

First up is the dolphin and whale toob:

Thoughts:
The dolphins and whales are a bit cartoony in my opinion. They are made out of a somewhat flexible plastic, a bit rubbery feeling.
Yet they are sturdy enough to 'stand' on their flippers/fins. The species described on the website are:
Beluga whale, blue whale, sperm whale, orca, narwhal, humpback whale, spotted dolphin, common dolphin, Atlantic dolphin, dusky dolphin, and bottlenose dolphin.
The beluga whale, blue whale, sperm whale, orca, narwhal, humpback whale and bottlenose dolphin are really recognizable.
The dusky, common and Atlantic dolphins can be seen in the remaining three dolphins left. Although, imho, those markings could have been stronger to make them more recognizable.
And a spotted dolphin?? There are two bottlenose dolphins, but no spotted dolphin. The difference between the two species is the spots, which neither of those two has.

Next one is the pets:

Thoughts:
These are great for every pet lover! XD
Not only the common species kept as pets such as the dog and cat are in this toob, but also the more unusual ones, like a snake, iguana and a hermit crab.
They are not all the same style, as the dog really reminds me of a PV, while the guinea pig and the hamster are bigger and more cartoony.
It is 50/50 for me, I like some but not all. Favorites are the dog, iguana and the ferret.

Last one is the African Family toob:

Thoughts:
I really like this toob! It contains four families: elephants, cheetahs, giraffes and lions.
Male, female and a young. Although gender is not shown in the elephants, cheetahs and giraffes Wink
The you are so cute and I can already imagine so many photo options with these. <3

Karin, thanks for showing these new WR tubes! Wild Republic surprised us with them, especially the whales and dolphins showing a good range of species. Though, they don't see as nice as they used to be 20 years ago. They show, however, some concern with diversity and some interest considering the species. Very Happy

Yes, the specie range is great but they looks like very cheap made in China figurines. I have they too and especially the beluga and the narwhale are not nice.

Wonderful surprise cheers

I agree with Roger, - it is great to see several species of dolphins !!! Very Happy

The pets tube is nice also, - but who keeps hermit crabs as pets ? Shocked

I love the families cheers

Looks like the 'Atlantic dolphin' is supposed to be an Atlantic white-sided dolphin :) which would make it the first figure ever made of that species.

Do they still sell this toob in the shop you got them from? Very Happy

Kaiyodo and Colorata both made Atlantic white sided dolphins :)

Ze hadden er best wat, alleen niet goed gekeken of ze dubbele hadden. Heb geen idee XD

Laughing! To be fair, oceans have no real borders, everything seems pacific there. But, Japanese toys naturally favour Pacific creatures. Talking about Japan, even the Pearl Harbour attack was a Pacific thing. bom Laughing
