Hi, I thought I would share my little collection with you all..... I've had 3 Schleich chimps for a few years, but recently decided to create my own "Monkey World", and over the last couple of weeks, I've added quite a few new monkeys and apes to my menagerie. Here's what I've got so far....

The whole gang:

Safari Spider Monkey and Lemur:

Safari Golden Lion Tamarin.... I wasn't expecting it to be so big (should've read the ebay description more closely!) - it's a really nice piece, but I was disappointed it can't really fit in with the rest of my collection. (Chimp to show scale.):

Thank you Ana! Very Happy Yes, I've been tempted to get the CollectA chimps, and also the Papo chimps - I don't like the look of them as much as Schleich, but then Schleich are nearly always superior in my book. I've also nearly bought the Monkey Toob, but have been put off by the quality... a few of them are nice though, and would add a few more species to my collection! They're all still on my shopping list, so I'm sure I'll get them eventually.

My one seems to be the latest Safari chimp (I'm not sure how old it is).... I have seen older versions, and they all seem to have flesh-coloured faces, but they are less detailed. Here's one, it's not from my own collection, I copied the picture from ebay:

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

There's also the one from the Toob set, which is very crudely sculpted and painted in comparison.

By the way, does anyone have the two different adult male gorillas by Schleich? (14196 and 14661) I only have the later one, and didn't bother to get the older one, as I thought they looked too similar. However, I'm now wondering if I should get him - I would love to see a photo of the two side by side to properly compare them. :)

Sebillba, it is very nice that you decided to post your collection! Very Happy
I am eager to see it growing here! affraid monkey Laughing
I understand what you feel with the large Safari figure, I think the best ape I know is the Safari WW orangutan and it is too big for me! Crying or Very sad
I live with them even not in scale but there are some limits for me. study
The Papo orangutan is a little large but a funny and nice creature, the SOL90 gorilla is not as good as others but as a lot of King Kong personlaity and you can [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] My pics are not good but you can have an idea and it is the same size and matterial than others. The Nayab apes are cheap but not bad at all and I love the Chap Mei squirrel monkey that is a small figure what is good once it is a small monkey. A lot to collect, I love thematic collections! Congratulations for yours! Very Happy

Thanks for your comments Roger, and for the link to your SOL90 gorilla, it's very impressive! cheers I added to my gorilla family yesterday with the Papo male, thanks to Christophe's photos. I'm sure you will see my collection growing.... I only originally intended to get the Schleich chimps, gorillas and orangs, three of each, but you can see how that has already spiralled in just a couple of weeks!

I received two of the Bullyland chimps yesterday, will share more photos when I have the full family. :) Again, they were bigger than I expected! Not as large as the marmoset, but still a very different scale to most of my others. I would definitely like to get more small monkeys, really wish Schleich would make more species! I've just googled the Chap Mei squirrel monkey, and he's gone straight to the top of my wants list! This make seem to do a few nice monkeys, I also like their Lion-tailed Macaque - just not sure where I can buy them, can't find any on ebay, but I'll keep searching! Very Happy

This is a very good idea!
Will you make any kind of "forest" to accommodate your primates? Schleich acacia and Collecta Cycad tree would be appropriate for it, I think. Some natural tree branches would fit well too.

Thanks for the suggestions, I've been wondering about the best way to display them, and some trees would certainly set them off very well. Cool I also need to find more space.... I'm an avid collector of all sorts of other things as well (mainly Star Wars figures - I have over 1500 of them!), so display space is always an issue for me. I really shouldn't keep starting new collections, but I just can't help myself! Embarassed Rolling Eyes Laughing

Space is always an issue...
For example, I've accommodated my animals on 4 bookshelves ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], Asia, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) and decorated them a bit with artificial plants, stones and handmade "mountain ridges".
It's simple and cost-effective, but will not fit for perfectionists who prefer making entire handmade dioramas...

Edit: don't worry, I've just found your African display thread - very impressive! I do really like those trees you suggested, will have to look out for them at a reasonable price. :)

Thanks for all the links! :) I really enjoyed looking at your diaramas, and seeing the progress in building them, they've given me lots of ideas, I just need to find a space to set something up. I also thought your stories were great (especially the chimp one of course, that was brilliant!! monkey ) - I bet your kids love these, they're very lucky to have such an imaginative dad!

The only danger for me in looking at these, is the temptation of all those other lovely animals! I collect so many different things already, that I just want to stick to primates in this range.... but I know I could far too easily be led astray into collecting others, particularly the big cats. Very Happy cheers bounce cat
