Hello everyone and particularly those in England/UK...

Do you know of anywhere that sells the major brands other than Schleich? Or am I looking online only?

I live not too far from a shop that sells both Safari Ltd and CollectA dinosaurs, but no wildlife. I have come across some papo dinosaurs in another shop too.

Never found and Bullyland or Mojo Fun in shops either.

All the main toys shops seem to be Schleich only.

Any help would be fantastic, thanks

Best of luck, it seems to be a universal problem!

There seem to be fewer and fewer places here that sell figures at all. There are a couple Schleich options, a handful of Safari vendors, some Wild Republic and Breyers, a Mojo Fun, and I just went to a prehistoric only vendor that had some Papo (a first for me). I've never seen Bullyland or CollectA in a store. But then, toy shops are a vanishing species here in general.

I've wondered how MiniZoo would work out price wise, with the weaker Aussie dollar vs. US dollar. Might be worth checking out for you too.

Modellpferdeversand in Germany is a very nice option Very Happy They have all the major brands, and some more. Not that expensive either Very Happy

Where I live in the UK, they used to have a Toys 'R us that sold only Schleich but went bankrupt. They now have a Smyths Toys that also only sells Schleich. I have bought Mojo Fun models from MiniZoo. It's a great shop with good prices, but unfortunately, I have to pay customs duties every time. Another option is the German Ebay seller Spieleundkonsole; as long as we are in EU, we won't need to pay custom duties Smile

Thanks everyone, I imagined online would be the way to go now.

I will look into minizoo thanks, I know they have a good selection.

I used to buy from Modellpferdeversand quite a bit and I will look into the other German options too.

I have found CollectA in a shop called Rossman in Poland which was a great suprise but I'm only there once every couple of years.

It's a shame, I really do enjoy handling each piece and looking at the details and of course choosing the best paint job.

Yes would agree that in UK Schleich is the dominant one.
There is a toyshop in Brighton that in the past did Bullyland and Timpo/Nayab and Papo but only a limited number of models.The Bullyland are now gone and they have been replaced by Collect A Applause Applause but again a limited number of models.
TK Max sometimes stock various makers like Bullyland,Geoworld,Mojo and Breyer but you have to look on a weekly basis to find them.
I also found a number of shops in Lyme Regis that stocked Collect A mainly dinos/prehistoric but some other models as well.
Hamleys in London used to stock Papo and also Breyers but not sure if they do them anymore as haven't been there for a number of years.
I have found Terra Barttat at Smyths but not sure if that was a fluke!!!

Excellent, thanks for your info. Yes I'm speaking about that very shop in Lyme Regis. I have been a couple of times but they have only had dinosaurs.

Brighton would have been OK for me to go to in my last home but now I'm in Devon so it's not ideal. Do you know the name of the toyshop in Brighton?

There is a shop in Macclesfield,Cheshire @Steve170 that sells Schleich and Mojo (only UK shop that sells mojo I think) It's called Sugarcane Toys
