PostSubject: Elephants and Ostriches!   Sun Feb 26, 2012 3:33 pm

Friday night I found my FIRST 2012 Schleich in a store! Toys R Us had one, ONE of the new animals and it was the male African Elephant. At least it was a good one to have. :)


Shown here with the recent retired one


And here is my baby African Elephant united with his parents!


Now I will have to find a family for the new elephant. elephant

Also over the weekend I got a momdad for my baby ostrich. I love you


Very Happy

-Kristie

@Kristie. Nice Pics.

A Mom for your Baby Ostrich, or a Dad ? Schleich has no female Ostrich produced, so the chick has only two Dads... Very Happy Let's say, it has a dad and an uncle !

Great models and great pictures cheers

Congratulations flower

I think it was good it was a dad, you found for the little ostrich. His mom doesn`t even HELP looking after the children Suspect Laughing

Your elefant is great, I also like him very much.
Is he as light as in the picture, or is it the sunlight that makes him look lighter ?
Otherwise we have VARIATIONS you and I bounce cheers

Nice pictures, Kristie! Very Happy
The ostrich is a Mom with man cloths! Women usually don't like grey dresses, isn't it?
How did they make the chick? Without clothes! pale Laughing

Congratulations Kristie, wonderful photos cheers - that was strange there was only one 2012 in the store scratch maybe they'd sold out really quickly!

Thanks Harriet!

No, I really don't think they sold out because the animal bins were full. But they don't have a great assortment. They had like 20 Panda Bears and a bunch of lion and elephants. lol.

We finally did get our 2012 shipment at work, but they have not been checked in and priced yet. I got to peek at them yesterday and am much more excited about the horses than I thought I'd be!

We didn't get ALL of the new ones, but some horses, baby eagles, goats, birds, and a skunk should be coming home with me very soon! bounce bounce bounce

I would note that here in California, same-sex marriage is now legal, pending the disposition of the stay on the judgment by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals advisory panel... Laughing

The eye set(placement) is definitely better on the new version bull elephant! Too bad they didn't make it as big as their Fighter elephant : (

Congratulations Kristie!

The 2012 African elephant bull details is much better compared to the previous version. However the proportions is still not correct yet!

Thanks for the picture, Susanne. It's hard to tell, but they likely aren't too much different.
