Yesterday I was visiting toy stores to get collectA and Schleich and I discovered in one of them that there are animals exactly like the Schleich designs but much cheapers. I suppose they have worse quality, but aesthetically it looks pretty, I did not buy them because I already have the originals.

That's a big problem when they compete directly with the originals. I find sporadically some CollectA knock-offs but always in Chinese shops or other kind of shops where the original figures were never sold. Animal toy figures are a diificult market, the moulds are quite expensive, these figures are not as profitable as plushes, for instance and they give a lot of work to match all safety standards. Sales are not so good and if these brands have to compete with the knockoffs, much cheaper to produce once half the work is done, they get defintively ruined.

I will never buy knock-offs. It's just unfair for the original brands, who have given such great efforts to create the figures. Knock-offs don't deserve our money. Smile

I was amused to see knock-offs of Papo's dinosaurs, because Papo's dinosaurs are themselves knock-offs of Jurassic Park. But I did not buy them.
