We saw this advertisement in a wildlife magazine back in 1977 (or 1978?). Surprisingly, a shop in the village stocked the animals for a few months that Summer. Naturally, we bought some. They are 1:32 scale, like Britains, except for the huge Giraffe, which is in-scale with the 1950's Lineol animals.

Giraffe and Zebras.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Elephant family. ... sadly, every male Elephant in the shop had broken tusks.

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

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

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

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

All the animals are marked with a copyright symbol, JEOL, and HONG KONG.

Fantastic ones! For very long time I looked for any Jeol catalogue or model list, thank You very much for sharing these photos Very Happy

Some "experts" and rarities hunters claimed some time ago that the Jeol company made "tigon" and "pygmy-elephant" but never presented any photo. Now is all clear: As visible, that tigon is lion cub with slightly simplified painting and pygmy-elephant is African elephant calf...

BTW: I never expect that I see the complete Jeol collection in the mint condition. Really great ones! Congratulation!

Thank you, jarda!

We have two of the lion cub and the spots on one of them have run together to look like stripes - this could be the basis for the theory that they made tigons.

That's very interesting. Thanks for posting this. Jeol has been one of the animal mysteries for some time to many of us.

Wow! I love the giraffe! If it's in scale with the Lineol figurines does that make it in scale with the Schleich zebras?

These are true gems in your collection Lesley and Sue, I have the lioness lying and I love her very much cheers

Harriet, here is a picture of the JEOL Giraffe, a 1950's Lineol Griaffe and a Schleich Zebra.

Christophe, we never saw or heard of any more JEOL animals. (We live in a small village with no toyshop, and there was no Internet back then!)

Thanks so much for sharing these photos. It brings back so many memories of these elusive animals! They came out in the 70s but actually in the later years before they disapeared (late 1980s I remember seeing tubs of these at the Natural History Museum in London where each model around 25p-50p. I just remember being fascinated by the waterbuck and bought several over many trips there with my school. Then I lost all of them and regretted it!

Finally you have posted an article which puts it all into perspective and shows all the animals BUT I remember two things:

I remember that the tubs at the museum contained all the Jeol models pictured plus some other smaller animals like monkeys too. The article photo is from the 70s and some of the animals then were made of a brittle plastic HOWEVER in the late80s not only do i remember some newer animals, the plastic used was softer and the paintwork was much much better. I remember as the legs of the impala were very soft andsome models in the tub were deformed.

I remember all this because while the teachers showed other schoolkids some of the displays I kept running to the gift shop and playing/looking at these animals wishing I could buy them all........

thanks so much! WOuld be great to also see a later article or catalogue showing some of the other animals of which I am sure there were more!! Very Happy

Thank you very much to show us these wonderfull Jeols Les and Sue!
I really in love with them.
I knew about this brand already a few years, since i am on forums, but never saw so much of them in this condition.
As i really love 1:32 scaled older brands, they are a real must have for me, and i hope i can find them all for a reasonable price in the near future! farao cheers study

thanks for posting the ele pics esp, I only need the female to complete my set of whats shown, BUT there is a hippo and rhino and tiger and striped hyena at least out there too!Colour versions of black panther, redriver hogs and zebras.
The lion cub WAS also made as a Tigon, I had 3 variants in colouring and pattern, the tigon varient was striped all the way over.
The bull elephant IS clearly a forest, looking at the tusks on mine you can see so very easy- if you are redoing tusks then its very differnt to the Britains!
My theory is we are actually looking at very very early AAA! The later animals were similar to if not exactly same rubbery plastic, why the later impala females couldnt stand up,AAA began selling in Uk as these animals disapeared AND looking at the sculpting similarites between the AAA elephant and their own calfs you can see similarities, maybe the same sculptor, but.....

They were sold in France, USA, Britain and Canada- where Ive had figures from.
I envey you hugely for the female and if its ever needing a home let us know!!!!!!!!!

AFAIK tigon is lion x tiger hybrid, so in this case that figure should be much larger (probably nearly similar in size as the lion adult). As mentioned in this thread, the first Jeol edition has slightly simplified painting, so I still think the small lion-like figure is the lion cub. Please, don´t reveal us the "tigon cub" theory :)

As I have only few infos about Jeol figures, I don´t know if there are another Jeol figures like hippo or rhino but I really doubt in the Jeol tiger existence, because all the known Jeol figures are related to African fauna.

Robert, I remember your posts about your Jeol collection in LG forum but when I asked You repeatedly for any pics, all my requests were ignored by You with no answer. So I ask You again now, do You have any Jeol figure not presented by Sue & Lesley in this thread? If so, can You please share the photo?

AFAIK the only figures with different signatures are the lions. I got the lion male with "Jeol" signature only (not "Hong Kong" as the Harriets one) and two lioness signed "Jeol "A"" and "Jeol "B"".

I have two Jeol leopards with different paint, these both are "Jeol "A"".

Congratulations, Susanne! sunny

Congratulations Susanne! I believe it is a very small figure once according with the experts of the forum Jeol made the figures in 1:32 scale, the same as Britains. My Britains leopard is a very small figure, far smaller than a Schleich leopard, so this one is probably the same size of the Britains. cat

PostSubject: JEOL   Fri Feb 22, 2013 10:56 pm

Just in case anyone was wondering about JEOL, we are a Japanese company and have been making Electron Microscopes for over 60 years. The President of the company in the 1970's had a personal desire to promote education among young people and commissioned the production of the toy animals as part of this strategy. The venture was short lived, but we still make Electron Microscopes today. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Welcome on forum Jason! Very Happy
It is very kind from you to give all this information about Jeol. Very Happy
Once we are a community of collectors of animal replicas, it is obviously a shame that we can't find easily your beautiful animal figures from 70's years. Sad
I wish good luck to your company and please, if you know an easier way of finding these figures or better, if you plan in future to make new figures or reuse these good molds, please let us know. bounce Very Happy
