Thanks to Widukind, I was able to have these two beautiful Meerkats shipped to me. :) They are among the favorites in my collection, and they're absolutely stunning. The sit-standing one is especially unique!

I just love this figure!


From the get-go, you probably noticed how similar the standing one is to a Schleich Meerkat. I've done a comparison, and it looks like it's a copy. Even the sculpted fur is the same in most, if not all, areas.

While I couldn't really get detailed shots of the fur patterns lining up, here they are, side by side.

Schleich is always on the Right

The most noticeable differences are the way its head is turned upwards, and how tapered the tail is compared to Schleich. I prefer the copy to the real thing because of the tail! Plus, it has less words and copyright stuff cluttered on it.

Beautyful meercats, they are so cute cheers
CONGRATULATIONS with this great find flower

Do you have any idea who made them ? Are they made in China or... scratch

It is really funny to see the two, - Schleich and your new one - from behind, it is a HORRIBLE habit of Schleich that they paster the smaller models over with their addresses and CE and what-not ! Mad

I aggree with you, your new standing meercat is especially wonderful.
Just look how the paws are correct, the one he is lifting being more narrow, and the one he supports himself on the toes are more spread Very Happy

I googeled to see how a real tail looks, and found that there are 3 sub-species. But I can`t find descriprion/pictures to illustrate them. Do you know ? scratch

Wonderful figure! Maybe it has some inspiration from the Schleich one but I agree that the unmarked looks better! :) Nice from Andreas helping you finding another wonderful figure for your spectacular meerkat collection! :)

Thank you everybody!

Here's the link to the standing one:

I think the series is Fans of Earth. Or that could be the company name. I'm not sure! Sad

I agree! The text and labels completely litter the figures. The older Schleich meerkats have a lot less on them, though.

For the tail, you could look up "Slender-tailed meerkat" Very Happy


It was very nice of Andreas to help me, and I'm grateful every time I look at the figure :)
