For one year only, in the early 1990's, a local shop sold packs of six small plastic animals during the Summer tourist season. Maybe eight different packs.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

This is the "Forestlife" set ... the Wolf has been partly overpainted, but the rest are in original condition.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And this is the "Rainforest" set.

Each pack has a label, identifying it as an E. L. C. (Early Learning Centre) product, but the animals are all marked "Safari Ltd".

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Each pack has a double-sided insert card with information about the animals, clearly marked with the E.L.C. logo on both sides. No mention at all of Safari Ltd.

Can anyone here tell us anything about these sets?

Elc of UK is a marketing toys.
They have own products manufactured in your own industries
and marked E.L.C.

But too, they sold other animals of different brands: Safari,schleich,Playmovil.

Yes, the rain forest set remembers me a set that Harriet showed with Safari figures! monkey
This fox looks one that is missing me that is a Safari/Schleich Authentics. So no doubt ELC used Safari figures to make these sets! :)
Thanks for showing! flower flower

These sets were sold in the UK by ELC company but the were made by Safari ltd.I have all the sets that were made and some of the animals were interchanged.There was some other sets including a farm animal set,an African animal set and an Arctic set.The Artctic set had the wolf from the forest set only in white.My forest set doesn't have the bear in it though!!They also sold some dinosaur sets that were also made by Safari Ltd and sold as similar sets with various Dinos in each setThey have discontinued these sets along time ago which is a shame!!

It is the first time, that i see these models made by Safari, are made for ELC UK.
I knew them from the Schleich authentic series, and from Safari itself before.
So even more variations around... Shocked
ELC had models in their range that were made by AAA China to.

In addition to the Safari Habitat Authentics Collection Butterflies set, there was also an 'Insect' set that had a bumble bee, scorpion, tarantula, monarch butterfly and (I thought) a lady beetle. I bought both sets but I cannot find the lady beetle which makes me wonder if the fifth insect was something else?!?

THanks for reminding me of these--I knew they were from Safari but couldn't remember the line/collection they were sold under...

theres several variant packs,Sea life pack, diferent coloured sea elephant grey or yellow, different whale colours, dark or light blue, the Arctic pack- Elc pack polar bear but not white wolf, original Exotic animal pack, really different naf gorilla brown hippo elephant, lion, same croc, If I remeber correct each pack was £4.99 at Elc aroundabout 1992 I think it was, to get my little herd of caribou it was pretty expensive at the time on trainee zoo keeper wages.
In those days ELC sold Safari Ltd prehistorics, inc the Austrolapithecus family and sabre tooth etc, AAA farm and zoo animals, and the old playmobil zoo.
You could also buy Individually header bagged playmobil accacia and palm trees for you dioramas.
I remember 1sts sets available at ELC were wild animals and sea, then forest life.The Rainforest and arctic sets were the last out and are of best quality.
I saw in a museum loose figures and there was an indian rhino and addax but I never bought them and dont know if they were also by safari but they looked it.
