PostSubject: Playspaces Tube Animals   Wed Feb 29, 2012 4:17 pm

I mentioned to Christoph that I had an animal he did not have identified on his website (yes, I was shocked such a thing could occur too!)
It is the pangolin from this tube set.
The tube label says it is from Playspaces - a division of Adica Pongo Inc. I looked it up online some and found that Adica Pongo is actually a brand name of the company that makes Battat, a better known name to many of us.
Here is a picture of all the animals in the tube I have. Notice there are a few like the polar bears with more than one of an animal in very different styles.

I also have a tube of dinosaurs by the same company. I will post that in the next couple of days when I get a good photo. Both tubes were bought maybe 10? years ago, some time in the early 2000s I think. All of these are made in China. I think it's interesting that the giraffe is made with crisscrossing stripes instead of spots.

Ahh, I have that musk ox (with oddly long tail). Or I think it's the same brand, mine says only 'china' on its belly.
Also that lion and leopard look pretty familiar, I might have those too..

Really interesting to know about this brand :)

That fox is adorable!

Yes there is just China on the animals, the company info is on the tube label.

Here are the animals that were in my Dinos tube by Playspaces. There is a giant otter there. I think he may have wandered over from the other tube for a visit.

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

Here is a size comparison for you, you can see they are quite small next to our friend Hans.

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

That can be good since so many more can fit on a shelf.
Oh dear, look out Mr Mammoth!!

Being small has it's disadvantages too it seems

Thank you very much for sharing this info Tim! cheers
It is very hard to find out which China producer made which models sometimes, or actually mostly...
I have most of these models, but now i can give them a brand eventually! Very Happy

I think the orang is made originally by K&M Christophe, but copied afterwards by this company, i have one copy to, only in hardplastic.

I recognize this set. You are right about it, early 2000's. I was in preschool and kindergarten from 2003-2004-2005 ish. That's when I got this set. I am missing a lot of the figures, and when I was little a broke the tusks off all of my elephants so the elephant has no tusks.  Laughing elephant

Nice little figurines Very Happy Interesting that the orangutan and pronghorn antelope were produced (with better paintwork) by K&M as well. But I think I have some of these Playspaces figurines as well; the badger and the red fox, but I think the pangolin as well. But my badger is grey! Shocked

I remember this set--I bought it as a tube from Toys R Us under the Animal Planet name--that was in the very early 2000s.

The funny thing is that there is another set, with slightly larger animals, that provided the digures with the Panini stickers (same with the dinosaur set shown earlier).

All I have now is the hyena--it's about 2/3 the size of the Panini one, but otherwise the same:

(with monkey from same set, but I don' have it anymore). I think I might have missed this one in the 'show us your hyenas' thread too!

There were dinosaur (the set shown earlier, with some variations) and wildlife sets--I had the sticker books and everything (never did fill either one!). Most of the animals in the wildlife set looked like ones from this tube set, but were larger and painted a little better. There were some sea animals (fin whale, dolphin, shark) and some of the Playspaces tube figures did not show up (The Panini did not have an Orangutan or Pronghorn). I think there were 24 or 36.

This would have been in 1994 or so.

Yes, he does has a strange head indeed. He certainly isn't an European badger. Maybe an American badger?

It isn't flat enough to be an American badger, or mean-looking enough! Plus the tail is too long. Same with honey badgers. To say nothing of the colouring.

I am pretty sure it is (loosely) based on a ferret-badger of some kind--they are the only ones with tails of any real length, and tend to stand more upright than European, American or Honey badgers.

Hello KD, and wellcome here Very Happy

I think this hyena is so extremely rare that it is not likely that somebody here has one for sale, - but you never know Wink

You can try to put it on the "Search list" here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Very Happy

Do you collect hyenas ?

I do have the panda. And white polarbear even in two variations. One is hard white plastic. The second more rubbery. And its ear is off-set halfway its face.
Unfortunately i can't get any pictures at this moment due to the renovation here at home.

I did buy it in 1999/2000/2001 so it has been quite a while since they were available.

Hey guys, I already found the same hyena as well as other animals from the Playspaces set on a UK ebay listing. Thanks for your help, but I will no longer have to ask someone else to dig through their collection and sell it to me.

The set I got includes every animal in the tube except the orangutan, the kangaroo, the zebra, the horse and the 2 antelopes.

Hey guys, I already found the same hyena as well as other animals from the Playspaces set on a UK ebay listing. Thanks for your help, but I will no longer have to ask someone else to dig through their collection and sell it to me.

Okay, good, I still haven't even found mine anyway (although, not eager to part with it...)

Since these animals are so rare and valuable, does anyone have advice to take care of them thoroughly? Like should I keep them away from the sun or bleach products? And is it okay to bring them to airplane trips?

Yes !!!! Always keep valuable models away from sunlight !  sunny  Evil or Very Mad  sunny
Also less valuable ones, esp the ones with thin legs Wink

Same for bleach products, - luke warm water and a mild dish-detergent solution is ok for cleaning Very Happy

But I can't imagine how airplanes could harm them at all  Wink

Another question I have is, are they at risk for melting at temperatures ranging from 90 to 100 degrees farenheit? I don't know why, but I always had that concern that maybe those temperatures caused the paint on the pvc animals to become runny. Is this true? Or am I just paranoid?

That is 32 - 38 C !

That is quite hot, but more for the plastic than the paint.
At 100 F you must certainly be sure how you store them, because necks, antlers, legs etc may bend quite a lot Rolling Eyes

I had a box ol the rare , old Schleich heavy horses on on a shelf near the ceiling.
In winter when I have a good fire in my stove, it can get quite hot up there, - perhaps over 90 F.
Even if they are quite sturdy, the poor horses could not stand when I took them out affraid

That must be messed up. Where I live it is currently very humid and hot, but we ventilate the house so I don't think it should be a problem.

Another problem I have in my house is ants. They seem to be everywhere, and every once in a while I catch a couple of those buggers entering my collection box and running over my mini animals. Are ants bad? Do they cause significant damage to plastic toys? If so I will try to find a special storage area for these rare newcomers to my zoo.

Arrhh ! Darned ants !!! Suspect

They are fantastic creatures and very important in nature, but why do they always want to come inside houses ? Laughing

I do not know the kind of ants that you have where you live, but as far as I know, ants do not eat plastic or paint scratch
