I don't know anything about the brand, but I do know the frogs. There are 3 groups represented in this set, the first is the green one in the middle. It is a species of tree frog called a red eye tree frog, Ageylichnis calldryas. The color is a little wrong, it is a bright green tree frog with red eyes but on the lapels, the side between the front and back legs, there is normally a series of very bright blue squares that have a thick yellow border, it is very beautiful. These frogs are very popular in the pet trade but they are strongly nocternal, don't like still water (such as a water bowl or pond) but need a dry and highly humid aquarium. Very difficult to recreate in a terrarium. Also they only show the eyes and colors when they are active which is always well into the night, if there is any light they will remain hidden.

The rest of the frogs are different species of the so called poison arrow frogs. This is not actually correct, they are not used on arrows at all but on the tips of hunting darts delivered through a blow gun. Of all of the species only 3 are toxic, the others have such a mild toxin that they just make you sick. The way it works is the bright colors warn predators not to bother them, the way a predator learns is by eating one, if it were to die by eating a frog it would never learn to avoid the frogs and since there are so many more predators then frogs it would mean the extinction of the frogs. Normally the frog gets pickec up and than spit out, sometimes with no more then a small wound, and the frogs live while the predators avoid anything with bright colors. The 3 most toxic species have a very muted color pattern that blends in with the fallen leaves and dirt, and they hide a lot, thus avoiding the confrontation with a predator who would die if it ate one. Most of the colorful frogs in the group are from the genus Dendrobates, the toxic ones are in two different genera, Epipedobates and Phyllobates.

The rest of the frogs are as follows:
red and black is Dendrobates lehmanni
blue and black could be either the blue form of Dendrobates tinctorius or D. azurius
the reddish one with yellow is probably Phyllobates terribilis, which is the most toxic of all of the dart frogs
and the last one is Epipedobates tricolor

These are just guesses based on the color patterns, they are not exactly colored correctly but close enough for me to have a good idea what they are supposed to be. For many, many years I raised most of the frogs that are there, including the very toxic ones, my favorite is not one of your figures, it is Dendrobates pumilio and that was also the first tattoo I had done, it is on my right shoulder.
